The North = Freljord

These are just characters who spent a lot of time at or near the wall. The Frejlord is the coldest region in Runeterra, so that is the geographic analogy, but as far as characters go not all of these will line up perfectly.

Roose Bolton = Shaco

There are a lot of candidates for great backstabbers in Game of Thrones, but perhaps none did it so obviously or in such a scumbag manner as Roose Bolton. One of the architects of the infamous Red Wedding, he was the one who delivered the killing blow to Robb Stark along with the Lannisters’ regards.

Not only is Shaco a backstabber literally, but he is a demon jester who revels in trickery and chaos. So not a perfect metaphor but hey we’re running kind of low on eligible candidates here.

Ramsey Bolton = Jhin

Jhin is a certifiable psychopath who believes that he creates art through murder, violence, and carnage. Even he might have second thoughts at some of the things Ramsey Bolton did, though.

Unlike Joffrey, who is cruel and psychotic for the pure fun of it, Ramsey has a plan, a plot, a goal for his psychotic actions. That doesn’t make his methods any less sadistic or explain why he gets so much pleasure from it.

Theon Greyjoy = Twitch

There’s no physical comparison here, nor is there any real character similarity between the two. But Theon Greyjoy was the biggest rat in Game of Thrones, selling out his former family the Starks and causing many of the boys he was raised with to be killed. With no honor to his name, it’s fitting he be cast by the one actual rat champion.
