Let me start off by saying that this month’s T5W topics are amazingly entertaining, and I’m anticipating every single one of them. For today I’m incredibly pleased to pick an all-female group. All of the ladies I’ve chosen for today’s post are so different form each other but equally remarkable. Making a statement that not only a certain type of girl deserves to be called a “Badass”. There are multiple qualities that can shape a character and making them truly inspiring. In here you’ll find out what makes these women the fiercest.
The type of girl who is so loyal to her own moral codes should be on everyone’s list. Lisbeth is someone whose actions speaks louder than her words, she knows many injustices, for she has been a victim many times, and always gets back up more determined, and not only she does so for herself but for others as well.
Her first born was poisoned, her daughter shipped off to another land, her nine year old son is the King of the Seven Kingdoms, her Private Counsel is composed in its entirety of men, the reign hangs by a thread. She has been fooled and ridiculed in many ways, but one thing is certain: nothing can break the Queen Regent.
Instead of letting herself drown in her vulnerabilities, Alice, after what happened down the rabbit hole, starts picking herself up, brick by brick, she keeps flourishing in a decadent world.
From the moment I read the first few pages with Lila on them I knew she’ll be a tremendous character. We might not fully know her yet, but in ADSOM we sure saw the beginning of an interesting story arc. She cannot help but yearn what feeds her soul: freedom and adventure.
Brienne of Tarth
Although some might know her for her opulence, her personality and heart measures up to her physical stature. She’s fiercely loyal, and never hesitates to do what’s right no matter the circumstance.
What I’d like to point out, is that none of these characters are in no way perfect, their faults and vulnerabilities somehow shaped them, and what I found the most interesting, in the variety of these women, is how true they are to themselves.
