I agree with fan favorites tyrion and Arya if we are picking pov characters then they easily are the chapters I get most amped for. My favorite characters in the series however are non chapter centric characters for some reason with the exception of my all time favorite Theon, but I rarely count him because he disappeared for awhile. Outof the other characters with chapters Jaime, Victarion, Bran and Jon connington I enjoy. But my favorites are Theon, Stannis just for his epic awesomeness constantly, Mance, Oberyn Martell who fell way too soon! The Sand Snakes, Damphair, Varys, Beric, The Hound, intrigued by the Darkstar hope his role expands, Syrio/Jaqen/Oldtown mystery man also make the list. For some reason I'm a sucker for Dorne and the Iron Isles probably because they took so long to get introduced. Hopefully the Kraken Prince and heir to Dorne(Arianne) marry and take the throne! What is dead may never die!!!
