The foreigners

This group doesn’t really have a fixed allegiance to any house or man. Some are driven by honor, some by loyalty, and others just by who has the most gold rattling in their pockets. These folks belong to various regions in Game of Thrones and League of Legends, so they can’t be so neatly classified.

Brienne of Tarth = Camille

Camille, like Brienne, was the daughter of a noble house who also became determined to set herself apart by becoming a great warrior. Both are strong, imposing female figures and I don’t doubt that Brienne would be able to wield swords for legs. She’s done well with every other type of weapon she’s been given.

Bronn = Graves

Bronn has always been upfront that his services were available to the highest bidder, similar to Graves. Both mercenaries, both constantly prepared for a fight, and both willing to fight dirty if need be. I mean, that Smokescreen is just too unfair.

Davos Seaworth = Gangplank

Once again, pretty on the nose comparison. Ser Davos is a pirate (he can call himself a smuggler, but he’s a pirate) who rose from the depths following a bloody defeat at the Battle of Blackwater. While he doesn’t have the same affinity for barrels, massive crits, or oranges that Gangplank does, Davos is just as at home on a pirate ship.

Lady Melisandre = Annie

This one was a tough one because we could have easily cast Zilean here instead after the whole resurrection bit. However, the parallel between the Lord of Light based off visions from the fire and a pyromaniac blessed by dark magic is just too spot on to pass up.
