In your Jaime IV analysis you mention Jaime identifies as a ‘peerless swordsman antihero”, which turned the gears in my head. Which characters do you think most self-identify as some sort of in-world archetype? It’s easy to point to sansa, but I think many other characters do their best to fill a role or part in a story. Which characters do so consciously and which unknowingly do so? Would love your take, thanks!

The one that comes to mind first is the “true knight” archetype, which is definitely one that influences quite a few characters: Brienne, Dunk, Ser Barristan, etc.
