Lord Varys (actor Hill Conlet) is one of the most mysterious and main characters from the popular series and book of the same name "Game of Thrones". From his face are several chapters of the novel. Appears in all parts of the book and in all seasons of the series. In the first season, the lord appears as a minor character, but from the second season, his role becomes more and more important. In the royal court, he is called the Spider or the master of whisperers.

When the tournament of the Hand ended, Lord Varys, whose photo you can see in this article, visited Lord Stark and warned him that Joffrey's mother might try to kill King Robert. He also revealed the cause of Lord Arryn's death. Spider offered his help to Eddard Stark, but he refused. The Whispermaster later convinced Stark to admit his guilt and wear black in order to save his daughter Sansa. He also reported to the royal council that Princess Daenerys, who had escaped the rebels, had become pregnant by the Dothraki Khal Drogo. This made King Robert so angry that he ordered the death of Daenerys, her unbornchild and her brother by any means.
A little later, Varys met with Illyrio in one of the dungeons of the red castle. There, friends discussed the war, which, in their opinion, should soon begin, and decided on ways to solve problems in the impending crisis. In addition, Illyrio said that he would provide Varys with fifty more birds and, of course, gold.
After the death of the king
After the death of King Robert, Lord Varys continued to serve under the king, who became Joffrey Baratheon. When Jofri demanded that someone be responsible for his father's death, Varys suggested Ser Baristan the Bold. Joffrey and Serserya chased away the illustrious knight. Subsequently, this act was called stupid and unnecessary by many. Selmy later joined the dragon queen, suggesting Varys' desire to alienate such a valuable knight from the young king.
Varys, under the guise of a jailer, came to Eddard Stark, locked in a cell, and convinced him to confess to treason, and also recognize Cersei's eldest son as the rightful king in order to save Sansa's life. In return, on behalf of the Queen, Spider promised Lord Eddard the right to wear black. When Lord Stark asked Varys who he truly served, the Whispermaster replied that he lived for the good of his country.
In the third season, after the battle on the Blackwater Spider, he tells the story of his castration to Tyrion, who at that time was the King's Hand. In the fourth season of Game of Thrones, Varys escapes King's Landing with Tyrion, saving the latter from execution. Their path liesto the city of Pentos.
Varys in seasons 5, 6 and 7
In the fifth season, Varys loses Tyrion as he is kidnapped by Mormon. However, in the season finale, Varys ends up in Meereen to become its whisperer master. In the sixth season, Lord Varys tells Tyrion information about the children of the Harpy. He also reports that slave owners came to power again in Astapor. The spider was present when Tyrion freed the dragons from their bonds. Varys also takes part in negotiations with ambassadors from Yunkai. Varys then leaves Tyrion to go in search of a fleet for Daenerys. In Dorne, he meets with Lady Olenna and Ellaria Sand, who provided the fleet. In the latest episode, Lord Varys sails with Daenerys to Westeros.
In Season 7, Lord Varys arrives with Daenerys' fleet on Dragonstone. Throughout the series, he will be the queen's advisor. However, in the seventh season, this character does not play an important role.
The difference between the plot of the series and the book
In the Game of Thrones book, Lord Varys didn't leave King's Landing at all. Varys helps Tyrion escape, but does not run with him, but transfers the fugitive to Pentos to Master Illyrio. In the last chapter about this hero, the Spider kills Grand Maester Pycelle and then Kevan.
Also in the books, Lord Varys had several disguises (there is a theory that he is faceless). As a professional actor, Spider is able to transform himself to appear in placeswhere the presence of a lord would be undesirable. For at least one persona (Guard Rügen), he maintained a false biography. Officially, this guard served in the dungeons, but no one around knew that Varys and this guard were the same person.
Also, Lord Varys sometimes appeared in the guise of a mendicant brother and a poor monk in dirty and tattered rags. His feet were bare and covered in mud all the time, and there were fake sores on his skin. This character was carrying an alms cup.
In some cases, the Spider appeared as a portly and richly dressed woman with a pink round face and thick dark curls. Rarely did Lord Varys grow into a large, burly man with a chestnut beard that showed through with a hint of red. But in the forge of Tobbo Motta, he appeared in a purple cloak embroidered with silver threads. A hood was pulled over his eyes.
