If we didnt know any better, we would declare him as our eye candy for this season of House of the Dragon, but we know better than to fix on characters this early in the series.
If Game of Thrones has taught us one thing, then it is not to pick a favorite character because before you know it and least expect it, they will be killed.
Who is Ser Criston Cole?
According to Ser Harrold, he is the common-born son of Lord Dondarrion’s steward. But, he appears to be more than just a common warrior. Not only did he successfully unhorse every opponent of his in the tourney, but he also managed to unhorse the great prince, Daemon Targaryen.
He also pushed out Dark Sister and even won against the prince in direct combat. He seems friendly and is even charming. We could see that our princess has taken a liking to him too.
If you want the real juice, then we have it, but we should warn you, these are severe spoilers for the events about to unfold in the world of House of the Dragon; you better not blame us.
Not only does Ser Criston get the grace of the king Viserys he also gets the complete attention of the princess too.
What do you call someone who hates you as much as they once loved you? That might be the name we could call Criston.
Criston’s love turns into hatred, wreaks havoc in the kingdom, and even pits the Targaryens against each other. Simply put, he may have set out a domino effect in the downfall of the great Targaryen Dynasty.
As to how his and the princess’ relationship transpires, we have to wait for the show to figure it out since the show does not necessarily follow the book.
Is Ser Criston Cole good?
When it comes to GOT or its prequel, it is always better to keep every character in the gray area, no one is really good, and no one is really bad; who are we kidding? We got some serious scums too in the show.
