Sean Bean as Eddard 'Ned' Stark in "Game of Thrones" (HBO)

Everyone who's died in Game of Thrones" — with every cause of death — from Aggo to Yoren

Season 7 of "Game of Thrones" is under way, signaling one thing: you're about to see some of your favorite characters die. From witnessing the unexpected execution of Ned Stark in season 1 to gasping at Hodor's death-by-wights in season 6, watching in horror as beloved players meet their ends in brutal, inventive ways is simply part of being a fan of the show (except for Viserys and Joffrey, those were actually pretty great).

So, to help you make sense of the near-ceaseless carnage, we've compiled a comprehensive list of all the characters slaughtered since the first episode. It is, for ease of use, presented in easy alphabetical order with cause of death and episode listed for each departed soul.

Now, yes, some similar lists might contain more deaths — ours has only 195 while others put the number as high as 1,243. But after some fraught philosophical conversations about what constitutes a "character," we decided to leave out non-speaking, non-name roles. Sorry "Guard #3" and "Bolton Solider #5". All men must die — Valar Morghulis — but not all spear-carrying extras make this list. Nonetheless, @ us if we missed someone crucial.

We will be updating this tally of the dead, so you may soon see more favorites up here. But don't worry, Jon Snow can't die twice... right?
