    Game Of Thrones: Character Attribute Matchups: Link to this post

    This matches up characters by together into groups
    based on their attributes that focus of ascension.
    (Not foils, however you can come up with character foils based on this.)


    F - Fighting ascension (This includes using war and murder.)
    H - Heir ascension (This includes using betrothals and marriages.)
    M - Magical ascension (This includes Warging, dragons and black magic.)
    P - Political ascension (This includes using spies, bribery, prostitution, playing both sides.)
    R - Religion ascension (This includes The Sight.)

    Honorability isn’t a means of ascension;
    I think of it as a pureness of mainly abiding by one of
    these methods of ascension and how they use the rules of that method.
    It appears honorable men don’t survive long in this
    world. You either have to use several methods
    of ascension or do what’s required over what’s proper
    in the one method you employ.

    Magic ascension is possible for individual members of a
    group that don't use magic because the group as a
    whole is using Magic.

    Pure Character examples of each:
    Religion ascension:
    High Septon (@ King's Landing)
    Nuns of the Faith of the Seven;

    Political ascension:
    Little Finger, Varys, Shae;

    Victory through Fighting ascension:
    Robert Baratheon (Dead), Gendry;

    Heir ascension:
    Joffrey Baratheon (Dead), Tommen & Myrcella Baratheon;

    Magical ascension:
    Drogon, Rhaegon and Viserion (Dany's Dragons);
