Tywin Lannister, as a sim as portrayed by actor Charles Dance in TV series Game of Thrones
Family, wisdom, legacy, control.


Tywin Lannister, the authority of the eternal yesterday, the customs sanctified by their immemorial validity and the habit rooted in men to respect them.

Despite all his claims about Family, if you look at his actions he is first and foremost a Fortune sim. He claims family is his motivation but if you think about it, the true motivation is his family's position - the shine, the respect, the superiority. In his traditional mind, a father's job is to be out there working, so he is out there winning the war. He doesn't get to be with his family because his family - Cersei and Joffrey - started the war - and frankly he is far more competent out there than with them anyway.

In my game I have freetime, and I made him a Fortune/Family sim. Up to you to decide what you want him to be - yet I don't imagine Tywin Lannister playing with the fridge door or jumping on the couch. This man smiled with his wife, and after she died while giving birth he became forever grim. Now he smiles when he crushes an enemy, and that's it. He smiled with Arya Stark, too, but that is a rare exception. I believe he liked her because she's smart, tough and a good worker - like himself.

Zodiac : In the sims game, Tywin would be the purest Scorpio. Neat, Shy, Active, Serious and Grouchy. Don't be afraid to give him zero for grouchiness, remember the Red Wedding, Tywin isn't afraid to cheat to win the game.

Actor Charles Dance is charismatic
I seem to have this sort of aristocratic demeanor
He likes swimming, riding a bike, playing the ukulele and the guitar, poetry, white wine and to sleep early.

About old actors
If we retire, there'll be nobody to play the old wrinklies, and that would be a dreadful shame.

Tywin Lannister Quotes
Lannisters don't act like fools.

The future of our family will be determined in these next few months. Before long I'll be dead, and you, and your brother, and your sister, and all of her children. All of us dead, all of us rotting in the ground. It's the family name that lives on. It's all that lives on.

This will be my last war, win or lose. Do you know what legacy means? It's what you pass down to your children, and your children's children. It's what remains of you when you're gone.

M'lord. Low-born girls say m'lord, not my lord. If you're going to pose as a commoner, you should do it properly.

Any man who must say I am the king is no true king. I'll make sure you understand that when I've won your wars for you.



INCLUDED!!! - INCLUDED!!! - Everything! :D

If you download the Sim of Tywin you get everything, the separate downloads are for those who just want one specific part.
The sim you get is an adult. Feel free to turn him to an elder if you want, but elder sims walk, talk and act in a way that I felt unfitting for my Tywin.

Additional Credits:
All the fantastic, patient, kind people who helped me along the way of making this sim, either on the Creator's Feedback Forum, on my thread about mesh problems, or on the Where Can I Find forum!

A big, big thank you from the bottom of my heart! This has been team work!
My Tywin wouldn't be the same without you!

Enjoy! :D
