There is a stark difference between me and my younger sister.

Who am I?

Edit (hint 1): There are also some similarities. For example, both of us are not exactly pacific.


I am the city of York. My younger sister is New York, we are not on the Pacific Ocean and the House of York is the basis for the House of Stark.

ps: This is my first attempt at a riddle. While it may be not new, I invented it by myself and wanted to share it.

  • $\begingroup$ Well I hope that when you will see the solution, you will see that there is a specific one $\endgroup$ – Francesco Jun 15 '16 at 14:03

  • $\begingroup$ Poor old Bucky. But this specific riddle could not have been played with during WW2. $\endgroup$ – Francesco Jun 15 '16 at 14:14

    $\begingroup$ This seems pretty broad and those types of questions tend to get closed around here. Can you add some material that will narrow down the scope? We are not likely to have the same "a-ha!" moment that you did when creating the puzzle. $\endgroup$ – Engineer Toast Jun 15 '16 at 14:21

I am going with

You are Jon Snow and your little sister is Arya Stark


there is a Stark difference between you two.

But this is probably wrong:

The title talk about 2 sisters...

  • $\begingroup$ you are getting much closer :-) but still not there... $\endgroup$ – Francesco Jun 15 '16 at 14:11

Couple of guesses. (this question might be too broad)

  • She is obviously younger that you, so I am going to say you are a person that had a younger sibling born in your teens.
  • She is your little sister from Big Brothers, Big Sisters, so you are a Big Sister.
  • You are from a mixed race step-family. <-- millions of people
  • You are male, and that is quite a difference.
  • And for those going down the GoT path, there are actually three different solutions that fit, all based on hair color alone...

    Jon Snow and Sansa Stark, Robb Stark and Arya Stark, and Sansa Stark and Arya Stark

    $\begingroup$ that's what I was thinking about "stark difference." That it referred to color of some sort. $\endgroup$ – HardScale Jun 15 '16 at 14:05

You are:

either Frank or Billy Ocean


"Pacific" hints at oceans. Your sister is Indian (also an ocean), whereas you are black, making a stark difference between the two of you.
