Known as the Imp; Tyrion is shrewd, educated, and calculating, but receives little respect for this from his father, because of his size, and for the death of his mother during his birth. He is capable of cruelty to his enemies, but also has great sympathy for fellow outcasts and the mistreated. Tyrion is well known for his fondness of whores and wine. Even though he is no warrior, he has instances where he shows great bravery; he has stated that what he lacks in size and strength he makes up for in mental acuity.
Tyrion’s size was the cause of many problems and persecution, although mitigated to some extent by his high social standing and his family’s wealth and power. Tyrion gets on well with his brother Jaime but has a cooler relationship with sister Cersei.
