Whether sporting a precise beard like Petyr Baelish, or a wild bushy beard like Tormund Giantsbane, the men of the Game of Thrones know how to wear a beard that tells a story. These five characters listed below all have a beard that helps tell the tale of who they really are.
Petyr Baelish is a small man with big intentions. As Master of Coin, Baelish has his finger on the pulse of the realm, and nothing escapes his keen attention. He puts the information that he gathers to good use, especially where his own interests are concerned. With an eye for detail and an overly healthy dose of self-interest, Baelish reflects his love for precision in his appearance, with a sharp crisp wardrobe and a pristine Vandyke that is meticulously trimmed at all times. The scrupulous care that he gives to the upkeep of his beard reflects the control and precision that Baelish requires in order to feel whole and complete.
Fearless wildling Tormund Giantsbane is a giant of a man with a warrior’s strength and a loyal heart. Giantsbane fights for those he believes in, and his appearance serves him well. His shock of red hair and bushy red beard only adds to the fierce aggression that he presents to his enemies. His beard is an extension of his wildling spirit, a physical representation of an indomitable nature that verges on the unstoppable.
Khal Drogo’s hair and beard are physical representations of his conquering spirit. As a Dothraki warlord, Drogo is expected to serve as an example to his warriors. While the life that he lives can be harsh, Drogo never shows weakness or fear to his people. Instead, he adheres to the code of his people, conquering his enemies with a ruthless spirit, never having been defeated in battle. His appearance gives credence to his accomplishments. His long braid, adorned with bells and falling to his waist, is a testimony to the fact that he has never lost a battle. With the addition of his braided beard, Khal Drogo is a stern presence, a force to be reckoned with.
Jeor Mormont, the “Old Bear” who is the Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch is a stoic figure known for his fair yet stern nature. An elderly gentleman both loved and feared by his recruits, Mormont’s face speaks of the long years that he has lived as a protector of the people from the fearsome things that lurk beyond the wall. His snowy white beard adds to his appearance of aged wisdom, demonstrating plainly for all to see that he has lived a life that while hard, has instilled the wisdom and knowledge needed to both protect and to lead.
A brilliant, witty dwarf with a sharp intellect and a stinging sense of humor, Tyrion Lannister’s journey in the Game of Thrones has been both triumphant and humbling. His journey carries him from the privileges of being the son of one of the most powerful men of the realm to being a prisoner accused of regicide before the tides turn again and he finds himself standing by Daenerys Targaryen as the Hand of the Queen. Tyrion’s beard reflects his journey. Starting the journey clean shaven, Tyrion makes his way through many twists and turns, with his beard growing bushy and unkempt as he finds himself in dire circumstances. When he finally makes his way to Queen Daenerys, Tyrion is able to resume proper grooming, a fact that is reflected in a clean, trimmed beard. Tyrion’s beard clearly demonstrates the progression of his maturity, and it demonstrates the progression of the journey of his life.
