Game of Thrones had most of us on the edges of our seats. It had such a wide range of characters that it was a treat for those who enjoy political drama. And there were all types of people we saw in the nine realms. Among all the families in Westeros, some were clear fan favorites, mainly because they were away from greed and were nobler than the rest. Yep, I am talking about House of Stark, from Winterfell. We felt terrible, sad, angry, and even proud of the members of this family. Their involvement in the war must have been the last thing any Stark fan would have wished for (yes, I mean Jon and Robb). At the same time, some House Stark Members in Game of Thrones had fantastic character arcs, while others just disappointed us. So, here’s a list of Game of Thrones character arcs of all Stark members ranked from best to worst.
1. Sansa Stark: Her development from a shy, scared-little-girl to a badass was the best thing to have experienced. She learned well from all the terrible things she went through and was worthy of ruling the North.
2. Arya Stark: She was always the fearless and adventurous one. And she loved her family more than anything. So to see her grow from a child who was learning to fight to an angry assassin to a wise young girl was awesome.
3. Jon Snow: To first learn that he’s Ned’s illegitimate son to know who his actual ancestors were, the journey was one hell of a ride. He was the one responsible for forming the most difficult ally and defeated the Army of the Dead. He transformed into a brave leader.
4. Catelyn Stark: She was a loving mother and wife but wasn’t always very soft, especially when it came to Jon. But after they set out to avenge Ned Stark’s death, she turned into a fierce mother and a clever fighter.
5. Benjen Stark: We didn’t get to see him much, but he played an important role. He was determined to save his family, and he did so even when he had to make the most difficult sacrifices.
6. Robb Stark: Robb always displayed his leadership qualities, and there was no doubt about how great a king he would be, had he survived. His character was developing so well until his judgments started becoming cloudy. He took a series of foolish decisions that cost him his life, his mother’s, and his wife’s.
7. Eddard Stark: He was the noblest and honorable man. He was far away from trouble until his friend, the King, asked for his help. After he died, and Ned went on for the search of truth, he invited problems that cost his life.
8. Bran Stark: The way his character was developing from a poor child who lost his ability to walk to someone so wise for his age, fans had high hopes for him. The character development wasn’t as fulfilling as it should’ve been.
9. Rickon Stark: He had the least involvement in the plot and also the slightest relevance. There wasn’t much development of his character either. All we had was the cute little kid in the initial seasons, and then he was dead at the hands of Ramsay Bolton, which led to the Battle of Bastards.
