Here's Varys, aka "The Spider," from the A Song of Ice and Fire novels by George R.R. Martin. And, of course, Game of Thrones on HBO. For me, Varys is the kind of guy you don't REALLY trust but you can't ever really discover why. And when he says he's doing everything "for the kingdom," you kind of want to believe him. Of the major manipulators and schemers in the series, Varys seems to be the wildcard. You can see that Littlefinger is pretty much in it for himself, and Cersei wants to keep ruling power with her and her family. And everyone else is either working for someone or being blackmailed by someone. So, here's Varys being all secretive and stuff.
