Tracing the development of Daenerys Targaryen's hero journey through George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, this paper posits that her strength and success in moving towards acheiving her target is because of her penchant for hybridity. This is studied in contrast with Cersei Lannister, whose insistence of purity, paints her more as villain than a hero. This has been completed in 2018, prior to the events of season 8 of HBO's Game of Thrones.
