2nd E could be ERU from RUE, except that there's no room for a note in there.

F = no fee = a bit like FEANOR?

I don't know the Norse god, but is L LOMION?

No to Lomion

LINDO, keeper of the Cottage of Lost Play.

L + ODIN.

My mistake was not realising that L was the direction/way.

Well, since my HOME collection is currently 200 miles away from me, I have about as much chance of solving the rest of these as I have of getting sound relationship advice from Denethor.

The turncloak one, (interesting to learn the North American term; it's turncoat over here), might be TROTTER from TRAITOR, but I very much doubt it. It's probably something really obscure from the Notion Club Papers or something.

Actually, the book in question is a really famous one, with a TV show based on it no less. And the clue refers to my 2nd favorite character innit.

I believe I can provide that part. Theon Turncloak was the first thing that came to mind, but I can't make anything out of his name. Pervinca, any ideas with that?

Would your second favourite character be TURIN?

U(TAH) could be the state, but who is the traitor?

...

EDIT: If there's a THEON, we could put DE(LAWARE) inside it, perhaps, and get ...

... THEODEN?

He must be in HOME, because the History of LOTR is in HOME.

Btw, who is your favourite? I have to say Theon is a fascinating character myself in both book and show, but I've always looked forward the most to the Arya POV chapters.

RIAN is NAR with returning I.

Well, it is!

But it's not a female character that the clue is asking for.

ROWAN is close ... NAR again ... but WO, not WE.

No hints for you, since you haven't given your follow-up reaction on Bran being my favorite.

I can't give feedback, because I've never read nor watched a single episode of GOT.

Try figuring some of those out first. E, A, R, and T clues should be quite easy, especially for you Pervinca, since you are a password genius and all.

TURIN laments, and has the word RUIN, which is chaotic?

No. This character is an anagram of LAMENTER.
