ASOIAF/Greek Mythology: Olenna as Demeter

Queen of the garden, civilization blossoms around her, waves rippling outward into society. Her realm is ruled with fertile fields and well-fed bellies, alliances forged with logic and calm, even in the face of overwhelming pressure and oncoming war. Her instinct, maternal or otherwise, is unfailing. She would wreak havoc on the kingdom if she sensed a threat. They could not survive without her warmth and blessing, and if she must water her crop with blood, so be it. But a strong woman knows to hold her back straight and her head high, and a wise woman knows to placate even the fiercest of warriors with a smile on her lips, a flower on her sigil, and a dagger behind her back. Her opponents would be wise to study the rose: slow to open, beautiful, and defended with thorns from all sides. Careful, lest pricked thumbs turn to slit bloody fingers.
