Salladhor Saan is a mercenary pirate pledged to the late King Robert’s brother Stannis. In addition to Saan, Thrones season 2 has also cast a lecherous Northerner and one of his pet wives, and a faceless assassin and Theon’s fierce sister and an heir to the Iron Throne and his sorceress and the Onion Knight and a female wannabe knight and a proper princess.
