Tyrion Lannister, a central character in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, is described as a fulcrum point within the series. In Monk’s reading, the dwarf Tyrion’s experiences can be mapped onto the hero’s journey. He is surrounded by dragon imagery which, in a Jungian interpretation, positions him as a potential heir to the throne of Westeros.
