Game of Recruiters

Originally published by Sean Burke on 09.22.20

If you're anything like me, you might live on the edge of nerd-dom. So, after my right hand gal, Becca Blank, gave herself the title "Hand of the King," it was clear what had to be done. I had to decide who everyone else at Whistler would be in Game of Thrones.

So here's the definitive list. If you've ever wanted to choose your legal recruiter based on what Games of Throne character they're most like, here's your chance.

GOT - Becca

Becca Blank - Tyrion Lannister

(Hand of the King, drinks wine, small but mighty, pretty clumsy in battle)



GOT - kathleen

Kathleen Mon - Catelyn Stark

(Lady Stoneheart, watches over us like we’re her own children, smarter and more honorable than the rest of us, might come back from the dead b/c she’s so strong willed)




GOT - Tad


Tad Gruman - Jon Snow

(tears up easily, secretly a member of the royal family but would rather party with the Wildlings, probably the protagonist)



GOT - Taylor


Taylor Miller - Gray Worm

(a machine, unsullied, great arms)


GOT - Wolf


Wolf Konstant - Stannis Baratheon

(well-educated, grammatically correct, prefers to work remotely)


GOT - Mat


Mat Martin - Samwell Tarly

(more literate than the rest of us because he basically wrote the book on Bankruptcy, probably knows how to cure Greyscale)



GOT - Jordan


Jordan Rosenberg - Bronn

(clearly has the most fun of anyone, rags to riches story, intellectual bodyguard)


GOT - Sarah


Sarah - combo of Olenna and Margaery Tyrell

(always wins best dressed but plays the game better than anyone, might have inherited a killer streak from her grandmother’s side of the family)


GOT - Francis


Francis Kelly - Ayra Stark

(short, assassin, revenge is sweet, athletically talented)



GOT - Dan


Dan aka “Pro-Bono Dan”- Ned Stark

(best Dad and boss ever, but too honorable to his detriment)



GOT - Amdie


Amdie Mengistu - Oberyn Martell

(everyone wants to work with him, he’s clearly hot and he knows about the finer things in life)



GOT - Julieta


Julieta Stubrin - Sansa Stark

(has plenty of leadership experience, Queen in the North...ern California)



GOT - Josh


Josh Bilgrei - The Hound

(tough NY exterior with a heart of gold)



GOT - Emily


Emily Witt - Brienne of Tarth

(fiercely loyal, being a pilates instructor and being a knight are basically the same thing, right?)



GOT - Jon


Jon Drucker - Ser Barristan Selmy (“The Bold”)

(one of the best 3 point shooters and most honorable men in the seven kingdoms, probably knows your dad or cousin’s best friend)



Diana - Melisandre

(behind the red hair, marketing is witchcraft)


GOT - Sean 2


Sean Burke -

argued with my HAND (Becca) a bit on this one. I kept saying that I’m clearly Jon Snow. (HAND: “No”) Tormund? (No) Jaime Lannister? Or at worst Littlefinger? And I was overruled.

I’m clearly Cersei.
