You are Varys (Owl)!
“The big fish eat the little fish and I keep on paddling.”
Perhaps the one individual better read than Tyrion Lannister, as former Spymaster of the Seven Kingdoms, you command a vast network of informants that spans the known world. You view the world as one big machine; while most humans represent the gears and cogs, those with knowledge are the levers that have ultimate control. It’s your preference to observe the machine, to decipher its mechanics, its inner workings. But at any moment, you might decide to pull one of those levers and command the machine to do your bidding.
