This chapter reviews some recent ideas about how the nature of fictional characters (and especially fantasy ones) might be changing in response to broader cultural shifts. It then deepens the investigation of character choices, by examining in detail how different groups affiliated with five top choices: Tyrion, Jon, Arya, Daenerys and Jaime. The chapter examines the kinds of affiliation that audience members make with characters, and it explores how these relate to audience orientations towards the TV show and to gender.
