Ser Jaime Lannister has crossed over from the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros to the fantasy realm of Thedas.
Using Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s innovative character creator, Reddit user sigurd07 has re-created the Kingslayer from George R.R. Martin’s renown fantasy epic A Song of Ice and Fire.
Known for his dashing good looks and superlative swordplay, Jaime Lannister is one of the most feared and admired men in all of the Seven Kingdoms. The knight earned his namesake as Kingslayer after betraying and killing the ‘Mad King’ Aerys Targaryen during Robert’s Rebellion, and ever since Jaime has carried the dishonorable title like a weight throughout his life.
The Kingslayer is one of the main characters in HBO’s megahit Game of Thrones, portrayed by Danish actor Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, and is one of the most captivating personas in the fantasy drama.
If you want to make your own Kingslayer, YouTuber MarcusGarlick has a nice video tutorial on how to craft Jaime Lannister’s hard-planed and charming visage in Dragon Age: Inquisition, highlighting all the small facial tweaks you’ll need to make in order to match Coster-Waldau’s stern-yet-somehow-jocular expressions.
The trend of creating Game of Thrones characters in Dragon Age: Inquisition continues onward, and was originally started when a Reddit user spun a stunning recreation of one of the show’s principal heroines, Daenerys Targaryen.
The Mother of Dragons and Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea looks resplendent when rendered in Dragon Age’s graphical engine, and instantly steals the scene with her white-haired beauty. The creator, a Reddit user by the handle of killerewok, even goes as far as to show you how to create your very own Daenerys Stormborn with an Imgur tutorial gallery.
Inquisition‘s character creator is pretty dynamic, but it’s also tricky.
After fiddling with it for some time I can honestly say that these guys are pretty close to mastering their craft. All of my renditions turn out awkward, freakish or plain wrong, leaving me to start over from scratch.
We can only guess what other Game of Thrones worthies will be created next: maybe Tyrion Lannister will make an appearance as a Dwarf, or the sly, silver-tongued devil Littlefinger. It’d be neat to see Eddard Stark or Jon Snow in the mix, along with Stannis Baratheon and maybe even the stoic, honorable she-knight Brienne of Tarth.
