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. Jaime Lannister is known for his wit and, often, rudeness.

Jaime Lannister is the son of Tywin, brother of Tyrion, brother (and lover) of Cersei, and leads quite a life. Known as the Kingslayer, he's the only Lannister not lusting for power - he renounced the throne and became the youngest night in a Kingsguard. A fascinating character who truly walks a fine line between hero and villain and as such... has a lot to say.
