So far, only two Lannister characters have been announced for the next game of Thrones prequel Dragon House, which means that the Lannisters will likely play a very different role in the plot. Based on George RR Martin’s Fire and Blood Serie, Dragon House It is said to take place 200 years before the events of game of Thrones. The main focus of the prequel is the story of House Targaryen and how the silver-haired, violet-eyed dragon family became the subject of legends. Considering that the main plot of Dragon House What is the Targaryen line, how exactly do the Lannisters fit in?
In addition to the main cast of Targaryen from Dragon HouseThe only Lannisters so far are twins Lord Jason and Tyland Lannister, both played by Jefferson Hall. Little is said about Lord Jason, other than that he is the Lord of Casterly Rock. Tyland, on the other hand, will be a canny and resourceful politician. The Lannisters are still rich in HotDAfter all, the unofficial motto of the house is “a Lannister always pays his debts.“However, due to the role the Lannisters play in Fire and blood, the words of the house, “Hear me roar“might not be incarnated in the same way as in Have.
With what is known of Fire and bloodIt is impossible for the Lannisters to have the same power and influence in Dragon House. Lord Jason is reportedly killed during the Targaryen Dance of the Dragons, an event presumably set early in the series. Tyland Lannister becomes King Targaryen’s Master of Coin. However, the position is short-lived when Tyland is later held captive and tortured. While Tyland becomes more integral to the story when he serves as the Hand of the King for Aegon III, that particular subplot may go beyond the scope of the series. Tyrion is held captive, like Tyland, at the beginning of season 1, and eventually Bran names him Hand of the King. Cersei manipulates her way to the throne and with the protection of her twin Jaime, leaves a trail of blood behind her on her way to power. Tywin makes sure that the shocking moments of the Red Wedding happen, brutally wounding the rebellion of the Stark families. The role of Jason and Tyland in the new series is far from the importance that Tyrion, Cersei, Jaime and Tywin have in Have.
The public became attached to the complex and corrupt Lannister family. His ever-changing exploits and loyalties made the house interesting to see and kept the winding plot of Have beating, whether they are opponents or friends. It seems that the roles previously held by Lannisters will manifest themselves in other characters. While the Lannisters are still wealthy, they won’t stand out as much as others, like Lord Corlys Velaryon. Lord Corlys of House Velayron is richer than the Lannisters and has the largest army in all of Westeros. It remains to be seen if he is the same ruthless and cunning patriarch that Tywin Lannister was. Alicent Hightower parallels Cersei, whose exploits are truly historically inspired, in her own quest for power as Alicent fights for her son to be put on the Iron Throne, even if he doesn’t deserve to be there.
A talented cast It’s been advertised, as Paddy Considine as the lovable King Viserys Targaryen, Olivia Cooke as the politically intelligent Alicent Hightower, and Emma D’Arcy as the headstrong Rhaenyra Targaryen. It will be interesting to see what Jefferson Hall brings to the table as a Lannister with far less power than Cersei, Jaime, Tyrion, or Tywin. Love them or hate them, the Lannisters played a pivotal role in game of Thrones and despite the end of Game of Thrones’ violent reaction, excitement for Dragon House among the fans it is palpable. However, with the cast’s announcements and given what is known about the book, it’s hard to imagine how this once powerful family will have the same screen time as before.
