36. Tormund Giantsbane
Don't let the last name fool you: This tall, red, and fearsome wildling warlord joined Wun-Wun and Jon Snow in their assault on enemy-occupied Winterfell and lived to tell the tale. Now he sits high in the King in the North’s council – when he's not making goo-goo eyes at the equally formidable Brienne of Tarth, that is. He's come a long way from the crotchety killer he was when we first met him.
