In anticipation of the final season of Game of Thrones, we chose to take a scientific look at the first seven seasons to see what we could learn about mortality and survival in the series.

The researchers published their findings in the open-access journal Injury Epidemiology, probably because "Game of Thrones" is like candy for anyone who loves both injuries and epidemiology.

If you ever find yourself trapped in a real-life Game of Thrones-style nightmare, don't be afraid to cast your morals aside in pursuit of survival. The end is nigh, and the question on many people's minds is: Who will live and who will die?

Their research does not bode well for Daenerys Targaryan, who has been loyal to the Targaryan family throughout the show's seven seasons.

This long-standing affiliation could put her at a higher risk of death when compared to characters like Tyrion Lannister and Jon Snow, who have changed sides.

Although Jon Snow already died once, researchers did not count his death because he returned. "By the end of the 7th season, more than half of the characters had died - 186 out of the 330 characters we included in this study with violent deaths being the most common by far", said corresponding author of the study Reidar Lystad. 'With violent deaths being the most common by far'. Dying of natural causes was rare, with only two characters, Maester Aemon and Old Nan, dying of old age.

As for the causes of death, 73.7 percent were injuries, particularly to the head and neck - including 13 decapitations. Other top causes were burns (11.8 percent) and poisonings (4.8 percent).

Most of the deaths (over 80 percent) also took place in Westeros, with the most common location being the unlucky character's own home. The survival time of individual characters varied widely, ranging from 11 seconds to over 57 hours.

Researchers at Macquarie University in Australia, evaluated the deaths of all important Game of Thrones characters across seven seasons of the show.

"We would argue that the ubiquity of violent deaths in the world of Game of Thrones may be attributable to, for instance, the absence of stable democratic government structures, resilient public institutions that can deliver public goods (e.g. schools and hospitals), and implementation of evidence-based violence prevention policies", Lystad writes in a blog post.

Three quarters of bad characters such as Darla, the cruel dentist's daughter in Finding Nemo, and Jafar in Aladdin, have skin issues such as freckles or eye bags.

Good characters like Mr and Mrs Incredible, Rapunzel and Moana, however, are more likely to have flawless skin and only 26 per cent of them have problems.

Probability of survival was also found to be worse for characters who featured more prominently in the show.
