Jon Schnee

Ort der Handlung



Jon Schnee besucht das Fest, das zu Ehren der Königlichen Familie in Winterfell gehalten wird und spricht zunächst mit Benjen Stark und später mit Tyrion Lennister.


Ein Fest wird in Winterfell abgehalten zur Ehre des königlichen Besuchs Robert Baratheons. Jon freut sich ausnahmsweise darüber ein Bastard zu sein, weil er so bei diesem Fest in der Großen Halle von Winterfell eher am Rand des Geschehens bei den Schildknappen sitzen kann. Hier kann er im Gegensatz zu seinen Halbgeschwistern so viel trinken, wie er möchte.

Jon watches the king and his family as they arrive. He recognizes Queen Cersei's false smile and is disappointed with fat, red-faced, King Robert. The 8-year-old Princess Myrcella seems smitten with her escort Robb, leading Jon to decide she is insipid. Arya is escorted by plump young Prince Tommen. The 12-year-old Prince Joffrey (who is even taller than Robb) is escorting the radiant Sansa. Jon decides he not like Joffrey’s pouty lips or the disdain the Prince seems to hold for Winterfell. He also notes that the Queen's brother Jaime Lannister looks like a proper king, and that waddling Tyrion Lannister is grotesquely fascinating, as ugly as Jaime and Cersei are beautiful. The last to enter are Benjen Stark and Theon Greyjoy.

Jon feeds his direwolf Ghost under the table and watches the pup silently face down a full-grown dog three times his size. Bringing his wolf to the feast is another perk to being the bastard. Jon is soon joined by his uncle Benjen, who asks Jon how much he's had to drink, and says Jon is older than he was when he first got truly drunk. Benjen asks about Ghost and Jon explains that he named him Ghost for his white colour and because he never makes a sound. Benjen then asks why Jon is not at the main table, and Jon says flatly that Catelyn thought seating a bastard with the King might give offense.

Benjen comments that Eddard does not seem festive, and Jon adds that the Queen is not, either, probably because of King Robert's visit to the crypts. Benjen commends Jon's keen skills of observation and remarks that he could use a man like him on the Wall. Jon asks if he can return to the Wall with Benjen. Benjen replies that the Wall is a hard place for a boy, but Jon counters that he will turn 15 on his next nameday, and it's said bastards grow up faster than purebloods. Jon thinks about how all his half brothers and sisters have futures, but there is no future for a bastard. Benjen says that he should know a woman and father a bastard or two first, to know what he will be giving up. This angers Jon, who states that he would never father a bastard and runs off before people can see him cry, with Ghost at his heels.

As Jon is leaving, Tyrion Lannister speaks to him from a ledge in the deserted yard and asks if he can take a look at Ghost. Jon offers to help him down, but Tyrion jumps down, acrobatically landing on his hands and vaulting to his feet. Ghost is uncertain about Tyrion, but submits to examination under Jon's command. Tyrion asks if Jon is Eddard's bastard. Jon bridles and Tyrion apologizes that as a dwarf he can usually speak as he pleases, like a jester. He comments that Jon seems to have more of the North in him than his half-siblings. Tyrion advises Jon never to forget who and what he is so that no one can use it against him. When Jon questions what Tyrion would know about being a bastard, Tyrion replies that all dwarfs are bastards in their father’s eyes and that though all dwarfs are bastards not all bastards need to be dwarfs.
