Daenerys has always been a character that I’ve identified with throughout the Game of Thrones show and the series it was based on–The Song of Ice & Fire. She goes through a lot: being sold like a slave into a marriage by her abusive brother, but she finds strength through her new status as Khaleesi. She comes into her own when her husband and child die and she is reborn with baby dragons at her side. Her quest is a noble one, as she seeks to free those who were enslaved and win over their hearts, so that she may take an army back to Westeros to claim her homeland. Her growth is what made me identify with her, but her flaws and poor decisions made her human, and that’s why I love her as a charcter and why I chose to cosplay her. (Also, DRAGONS!)
