Name:Arya Stark
Birthdate:Apr 2
Sansa can keep her sewing needles, I've got a Needle of my own.

Arya is a spirited girl with an interest in fighting and exploring, the foil of her proper sister, Sansa, whom she often describes as "stupid." She wants to learn how to fight with a sword and ride in tourneys, to the horror of Sansa, but she is encouraged by her half-brother Jon Snow, who is particularly close to her. Throughout her travels, Arya displays great resourcefulness, cunning, and an unflinching ability to accept hard necessity. She is said to take after her fiery aunt Lyanna in temperament.

Arya is skinny and athletic. She has strong Stark family features, with a long face, grey eyes and brown hair. At the start of the story, she is generally regarded as plain, as exemplified by her nickname "Arya Horseface," and often mistaken for a boy. However, there are instances of her being called pretty, compared to the beautiful Lyanna, and catching the eye of men later in the books.

She is left-handed, quick and dexterous. She is a warg, entering her direwolf Nymeria in her dreams and cats in Braavos. She has learned basic swordplay in the Braavosi Water Dancer tradition and knows how to use knives. She received a noble's education, and is said to be good with mathematics and an excellent horse rider. She has proved to know at least a bit of High Valyrian. She also speaks Braavosi with a strong accent and has put some effort into learning the language, under orders from the Kindly Man. She has a quick and curious mind and a pragmatic outlook.

Disclaimer: Arya Stark is from the series A Song of Ice and Fire and is the property of George RR Martin, and HBO. She appears here solely for the purpose of role-playing in [community profile] milliways_bar from which no profit whatsoever is being made. This version of Arya Stark mostly follows the Game of Thrones HBO series, with bits of book canon. Obviously I am not Arya Stark or Maisie Williams. This journal is strictly for entertainment purposes.

Arya comes into the Bar after the events of 1x03, 'Lord Snow', just after she has her first lesson with Syrio the Braavos swordmaster and her scuffle with Prince Joffrey.
