38. Yara Greyjoy
Her father Balon was a crusty old buzzard. Her uncle Euron usurped her claim to rule the Iron Islands and is now out to kill her. Her brother Theon was pushed to the brink of insanity by their enemies. But somehow, this sea-faring warrior woman has maintained her devil-may-care attitude and a drive to do better than the mediocre men surrounding her. Who better to serve as admiral for the war fleet of Daenerys Targaryen, who's been through the exact same thing (only she had dragons)?
