Abstract

This article explores how interactions in the known world can provide insights into the regulatory environment relating to human augmentation technology. While drawing upon wider aspects of the known world, the main focus for this debate is Brandon, Bran Stark, fourth child of Eddard and Catelyn Stark. These fictional characters are found in the fantasy world created by George R. R. Martin in his “Game of Thrones” series. As his journey develops he connects with his surroundings in a number of ways which enhance his core self and support his progress. Through placing Bran’s story within the legal environment relating to enhancement technology, observations can be made about the current regulatory framework and how it can evolve to address technological advancements.
