UPDATED: Team Lannister roars in this new set of Game of Thrones season 4 character posters. Here’s five exclusive artful images showing Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Cersei (Lena Headey), Tywin (Charles Dance) and Joffrey (Jack Gleeson). Plus we have the first of several brief character-tease videos: This one is of Tyrion, who apparently spends some time in season 4 in a very dark place.

The posters are each graced with the expression “valar morghulis” — which means “all men must die” in High Valyrian (But hopefully they won’t all die this season, right?). More Thrones season 4 character posters and teases will be popping up around the Web today, so keep an eye out.

Each actor carries an expression that suits their character: Tywin’s gives a deadly look of warning, Tyrion in chains is a mix of fear and anger, Joffrey radiates hate, Jaime (and doesn’t he look like a chiseled statue here?) carries some brooding inner conflict, while his lovely sister Cersei suggests watchful suspicion. As the posters make clear, HBO’s fantasy hit returns on April 6.

Here’s the video and all five posters:

UPDATE: Here’s the other two teases, for Dany and Arya:
