8. Jon Snow

The role he’d take: Lord Commander of the Kingsguard

Why he’d be worthy: It was inevitable that Jon Snow would make it to this list. While certainly not perfect, Jon Snow is one of the most loyal and dependable characters on Game of Thrones.

There have certainly been times that he’s followed his heart rather than his head. He’s made some terrible tactical decisions – one of which took Sansa’s planning and brains to get him out of before death.

Yet, he’s also proven that he can make some excellent decisions. He can protect Castle Black against attacking wildlings. He’s been able to hold back wights. This is a man who has helped to combine the forces of almost the whole of Westeros against the growing Night King’s army.

He will also put his life on the line. But sometimes, he walks into traps that many others wouldn’t. There’s certainly a part of the Starks in him and he’s not always learned from his mistakes. That’s why there are others on the list who could make better Lord Commanders of the Kingsguard.

However, when you want someone loyal and someone who will put their life on the line for you, this is a guy you want. If your Small Council is during the time of the Night King and Winter coming, then you’re going to want Jon and only Jon in this position.
