In the series Game Of Thrones a lot of what you see and hear is not what it immediately appears to be or mean. There is a large game going on with a vast number of participants who all have the same goal: power. Unfortunately for characters such as Eddard Stark who do not understand how the game is played, it results in their loss of being able to play anymore by being given a severe case of dead.
However on the other hand, there are those who are born for this game of politics and power. Two in particular are Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish and Lord Varys, aka 'The Spider', the master of whisperers. Although they may not rival each other in ambition they most definitely do in intellect and resources, with their motives often unknown and very unpredictable. They add many twists and turns to the show, influencing the plot in the background and providing one of the great rivalries of Westeros.
But can you tell who said it?
