The younger of the Stark daughters, Arya has put her survival skills to use as she continues to evade the Lannister forces that seek her. She chased away her direwolf, Nymeria, rather than see the animal harmed.
Arya Stark is a major character in the first, second and third seasons. She is played by starring cast member Maisie Williams, and debuts in the series premiere. Arya is the younger daughter of Lord Eddard Stark. She is fiercely independent and is often mistaken for a boy. She wields a sword named Needle, a gift from her half-brother, Jon Snow, and she has been trained in the Braavos style of swordfighting. She adopted the direwolf, Nymeria, but they have since been separated.
When her father was betrayed and arrested, Arya managed to flee the castle and was found by Night’s Watch recruiter, Yoren, who got her out of the city disguised as a recruit and tried to take her home. However they were attacked along the way and Yoren was killed, leaving Arya caught behind the battle lines in the war-ravaged Riverlands, still trying to make her way back home.
