Your Field Guide to Spotting Bran the Blessed

Bran is one of the tallest guys around, so he's pretty easy to spot from afar. You might find him sipping high tea or digging up his head from underneath the White Hill, where it's buried under the Tower of London. He likes kicking around a soccer ball now and then, too, but not with his half-brother/mortal enemy, Efnisien.
