20. Davos

The role he’d take: Lord Commander

Why he’d be worthy: When it comes to loyalty and knowledge, Davos is a man you want on your Small Council. He’s remained true to his word, whether he’s been on Stannis Baratheon’s side or supported Jon Snow. The only time he’s fully moved on is when his leader has died.

Despite his loyalty, he is also a man of knowledge and means. As a former smuggler, he knows the way to tackle specific problems and has the odd connection still here and there. These elements come in handy when going up against an enemy that doesn’t necessarily fight by the rules.

While he’s certainly been loyal and supportive on Game of Thrones Davos has also been one of those men willing to learn and adapt. He connected with Shireen over learning, as he finally learned how to read. He gets embarrassed around adults but he allowed himself to be truthful when it came to Shireen.

These qualities work together when it comes to being part of the Small Council. You know he’s going to be by your side. He’s not necessarily going to agree and he will bring up his own arguments, but he will be an important part in the success of a campaign. While he doesn’t agree, he will fight by your side if he believes in the cause.
