Totally disagree. Like... I really
disagree. In fact, this is kinda insulting to the masterpieces of Jaime, Jon and probably Tyrion.
She's still just a young teen who's been beaten down all her life, hunted by the men who murdered her entire family, sold off by her own brother for an army, doesn't understand her true abilities yet and is terrified by what she'll likely have to do in order to realise her one true dream in life...
SPOILER!!! (highlight) She is also pretty much betrayed by almost everyone she meets outside of her 3 Bloodriders and her small Khalisar, so no wonder she becomes very unsure of herself! (3 betrayals you shall know; once for blood, once for gold and once for love.)
I'm struggling to understand how this contributes to her being ''far more complex
'' than every other character.
The fact that she's even still sane is a milestone, especially considering she's a child of incest.
So being more sane than Viserys makes her a complex character? Let's not beat around the bush, I could just as easily say that it's a milestone Jon isn't a self-pitying wreck after Catelyn's scorn, or rather yet, Tyrion from Tywin.
Her biggest flaw is that she's too much of an idealist and is too gental a spirit in a world that rewards being ruthless and cunning.
Idealist huh. Sorta, I suppose. I'd rather say she is so drastically out of touch of reality that her decisions can indeed be perceived as madness, while Ser Spoilersten the Spoiler keeps her Kingdom together.
Also, broheim, when you wanna spoiler something use spoiler tags: simply type [SPPOILER] (your text) [/SPPOILER] and remove the second P.
