It may take years, but George R.R. Martin keeps cranking out chapters of his saga A Song Of Fire And Ice, better known to the public as Game of Thrones. The first book, A Game of Thrones, was published way back in 1996. There’s been four more to follow that and the fifth book, The Winds of Winter is currently being written.

Fans of the written series are getting a special treat because Martin has posted a preview chapter to his official website. The chapter focuses on Arianne Martell, who is first mentioned in A Storm of Swords. Fans of HBO‘s Game of Thrones won’t recognize her character as the series is still a couple of books behind. Arianne is sure to be a character on the show though, who would you cast?

Arianne is buxom and beautiful, with olive skin, large dark eyes, and long black hair that falls in ringlets to the middle of her back. Favoring her mother, she is short, standing at five foot two. When attending to matters of politics, she conceals her lush and curvaceous body with flowing silks, jewels, and other ostentatious displays of wealth.

Arianne is calculating, adventurous and fierce-tempered. When she sees something she desires, she strives to obtain it at all costs. Despite her beauty and perhaps because of her high station, Arianne is still unmarried at the age of 23. Arianne has a clique of courtiers and confidants who accompany her, including Sylva Santagar, Drey Dalt, and Garin of the Orphans. She is also extremely close to her cousins, the Sand Snakes, especially Tyene Sand.
