If you're anything like me, you would have gladly given up your Memorial Day off in exchange for a new episode of Game of Thrones. Of course, if you're anything like me, you've never actually felt a breast, so take that for what it's worth.

At any rate, I don't need breasts, because I've got something better: news about season four characters.

According to George R. R. Martin, who was speaking at ConQuesT in Kansas City (which I assume is a convention for fans of the film Con Air), the following new characters will be introduced (quoted from I09):

The Magnar of Thenn. Styr is a major part of Mance Rayder's Wildling army — although a lot of his part in the book has already been given to Tormund Giantsbane. In the book, he leads the scouting party that climbs the wall, which Jon Snow and Ygritte are part of. But presumably he'll play some other huge part in the Wildling attack on Castle Black.

Mace Tyrell. The son of Lady Olenna and father of Margaery and Loras — we've already heard from Lady Olenna that he's a disappointment. Presumably coming to town for Margaery's wedding.

Oberyn Martell. The first person from Dorne we've really met — he comes to King's Landing to take a seat on the Small Council, and winds up playing a huge role in Tyrion's storyline.

How exciting! Of course, these characters won't actually hit the screen until early 2014. That's a long wait, but at least it gives me a reason to live for the next nine months.
