Devout Game of Thrones lovers will vouch for the fact that the great games are terrifying. And when you play them, you either win, or you die — valar morghulis. This strange world comprising Westeros and Essos will unveil itself once again on July 16. And while the frenzy has already manifested, we are here with a little tease.

This is our version of the vices of Christian origin — called the deadly sins. Only, we have re-imagined certain important houses as projections of these evils. It is one grey world, and winter is here.

1. Pride

House Lannister

Pride

The house that pays its debts, is also the house that is punctured by pride. It brags about its past victories and reeks of arrogance. The omnipotent house in the seven kingdoms has no allies and several enemies. The Lannisters have been facing resistance for a while now, what with its patriarch Tywin Lannister killed and remaining allies gone.

2. Wrath

House Targaryen

Wrath

It is sin to be consumed by rage, with a desire to seek vengeance. Daenerys Stormborn, the last of the remaining Targaryens is doing just that. Currently sailing towards Westeros, with a formidable fleet of ships and a powerful army, she has her eyes on the Iron Throne, having been led to believe it’s rightfully hers. In the GoT world, one wouldn’t wish to cross a Targaryen, lest they face their wrath.

3. Lust

House Baratheon

Lust

Stannis Baratheon succumbed to this sin when he made a shadow baby with the red priestess, to assassinate his own brother Renly. Further, his elder brother and erstwhile king Robert Baratheon “ate, drank and whored his way to an early grave”. Lust swallowed them, and lust here is not mere fornication and adultery, but a general unrestrained yearning for the destructive.

4. Greed

House Bolton

Greed

It would be safe to say House Bolton walked itself to the cliff and dived right into it. The greed to possess power drove them to commit the unthinkable. They became the Wardens of the North — after betraying the Starks — but ended up killing each other to retain, what they thought, was absolute supremacy.

5. Envy

House Frey

Envy

There is a fine difference between greed and envy. While the former refers to the desire to possess materials, the latter is resentful and malicious. Let’s just say, the Freys were envious of everyone. Led by the nonagenarian Walder Frey, they concocted the Red Wedding to kill the Starks. Later, they allied with the Lannisters to bring down House Tully of Riverrun.

6. Gluttony

Dothraki

Gluttony

The Dothrakis are raiders — they invade, enslave and loot, all for their personal gains. Plundering is their way of life. In fact, they take pride in their ruthless and selfish conquests. They, therefore, are guilty of gluttony. Gluttony here, refers to the excessive desire to possess something — disregarding the interest and well-being of others.

7. Sloth

House Arryn

Sloth

Besides earnestly backing a game-changing battle last season (read: Bastard Bowl), this house has done nothing. It rests inside its lazy castle, intermittently throwing enemies through the Moon Door.
