With “Game of Thrones” George R.R. Martin crafted a universe full of (tons and tons and tons) complicated and complex characters. Many of the main characters have strong, individualized voices and even out of context, almost any quote can be quickly placed to its speaker. In a world of dozens of characters that is no small feat. Tormund is gruff and fearless.

Tormund Giantsbane is a prominent wildling raider. He appears in the A Song of Ice and Fire book series and is played by Kristofer Hivju on the HBO show "Game of Thrones." Tormund is respected amongst the Free Folk. He is rightfully distrustful of Jon Snow when he joins the wildlings.

"They call me 'Giantsbane.' Want to know why? I killed a giant when I was 10. Then I climbed right into bed with his wife. When she woke up, you know what she did? Suckled me at her teat for three months. Thought I was her baby. That's how I got so strong. Giant's milk."
