The website has over 2000 GoT characters listed with information such as title, house, the likelihood of death, locations travelled, what people say about the character on Twitter and so on.
According to the website, Jon Snow who receives the most positive mentions on social media followed by Hodor and Tyrion Lannister. Grey Worm is the most hated character followed by Theon Greyjoy and Walder Frey. You can explore more stats like the most dangerous house and top survivors on the website.
A report from The Guardian says, men are more likely to play noble characters, whereas women are more likely to play peasants—but are also less likely to be killed off. According to the Munich team’s algorithm, the likelihood of death stands at 33% for men and 23% for women.
