Tyrion Lannister

Will Tyrion be the last Lannister standing at the end of 'Thrones'? Played by American actor Peter Dinklage, the wise-cracking dwarf has time and again used his smarts to cheat death and court allies interested in keeping him alive. As Hand of the Queen to Daenerys, he's now in a position to help usurp his family's hold on King's Landing.

Tyrion's ultimate fate is a little tough to call. On one hand, we could see his selfish dispositions giving way to some heroic self-sacrifice in saving Daenerys or Jaime Lannister. On the other, he's survived so much and is such a fun character that it would also be satisfying to see him have the last laugh.

An imp on the Iron Throne? Not likely, but when the dust finally settles, Tyrion may be one of the few still able to wipe it off while reaching for a glass of wine.
