Two new "Game of Thrones" characters who fans are especially happy to welcome to Season 4 are Oberyn Martell (better known as the Red Viper) and his paramour Ellaria Sand. Though they don't appear in the first-look footage from the new episodes, some set photos have revealed the fan-favorite characters.

The photos in question were posted to Imgur and can be seen below. In one image, Pedro Pascal and Indira Varma stand next to one another as Oberyn and Ellaria while the Martell sigil can be seen on a banner in the background. In another, Oberyn stands next to Hafthor Julius Bjornsson as Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane. That shot seems to have come from a very significant Season 4 moment.

"Game of Thrones" Season 4 premieres on HBO in Spring 2014. What do you think of the first looks at the new characters?
