I never really saw how Arya could be described as 'psycho'. Sure, she's a scared little girl, but you gotta remember, in the whole family of the Starks, only two of the children actually looked like Starks. Jon (and the guesses on his heritage are enough to fill out more than this thread) and Arya.

And in the first book, Ned tells Arya how much he reminds him of his sister, because Arya obviously has the 'wolf blood' in her. We know little about the previous Stark's but we do know this much. People who had 'the wolf blood' tended to be badasses.

Also, I think Martin is building Arya up to be much more of an assassin type character than a warrior. The only thing I worry about, is that the way the storyline is currently going, it's not like Arya will have anyone to assassinate by the time she gets back to Westeros. view post
