Great drinking buddy because: It can be pretty great drinking with a glass-half-empty kind of guy from time to time. The Hound doesn't buy into all that honor and chivalry crap and tells it like it is. If you're in the mood to commiserate over the cruelty of the World, The Hound might be the man to place your barstool next to. Just know the only "fun" you're going to have is the inevitable bar fight.
Potential problems: He really likes killing people.
