Haus Baratheon VideoGames of Thrones - House Stark Theme
Baratheon took up a strong position on the hills south of Bronzegate , digging in on the high ground while he awaited the stormlanders.
With Meraxes and Rhaenys turning the battle into chaos, Orys descended down the hill, where he encountered the Storm King.
Ordering his own men to stand aside, he gave Argliac a chance to yield. Instead, Argliac cursed Orys and they fought instead. The loss of their king made the stormlanders loss heart, who surrendered or fled.
They delivered her to Orys, naked and chained. Orys, however, covered her with his cloak and treated her chivalrously.
None dared suggest that he was unworthy of these honors. His horses struggled up the stony, narrow, and twisty paths, while his knights were hit with boulders from above, the work of defenders the stormlanders never saw.
Where the Boneway crossed the river Wyl ,  the cunning Dornishmen launched a night raid, raining arrows, rocks, and spears from above  as the stormlanders crossed a bridge.
The bodies of the invading army blocked the Boneway from both ends, and when Lord Orys ordered his men to fall back, a triggered rockfall cut off their retreat.
With no way forward or back, the stormlanders were massacred, save for Orys and a dozen other lords thought worth the ransom. However, Orys and his bannermen found themselves the captives of the Wyl of Wyl , the savage mountain lord called the Widow-lover.
However, they were freed only after having their sword hands chopped off so they would not be able to use them again against Dorne. Orys became known as Orys One-Hand thereafter.
Orys was said to have become crabbed and bitter after that, so he resigned his office as Hand and returned to the stormlands.
He became obsessed with vengeance against the Dornish, especially House Wyl, whose lord had removed his hand.
Orys died content, according to his son Davos , smiling at the rotten hands and feet dangling in his tent. Your father took my hand.

Lysa has become a paranoid and an unstable, mercurial woman. Shortly before A Game of Thrones , Baelish convinced Lysa to poison her husband and write a letter to Catelyn to name House Lannister responsible for the act.

He sends his brother Victarion away to court Daenerys Targaryen in his name and bring her and her dragons to Westeros.
As the character Victarion Greyjoy was omitted from the TV adaptation of the series, Euron himself seeks marriage from Daenerys Targaryen, though once his niece and nephew Yara and Theon Greyjoy form an alliance with Daenerys, Euron enters into an alliance with Cersei Lannister, culminating in her promising to marry Euron after the defeat of the Dragon Queen.
He first appears in A Clash of Kings and is present as his brother, King Balon Greyjoy, reveals his plans to invade the north; Victarion is given overall command of the invasion.

Bastards born in Dorne are generally given the surname "Sand". Dorne, along with House Martell, is culturally, ethnically, and politically distinct from the rest of the kingdoms.
The rulers of Dorne are styled Prince or Princess because Dorne resisted direct conquest and joined the rest of the Seven Kingdoms through marriage.
He is the father of Arianne , Quentyn , and Trystane. By A Game of Thrones , he is in his fifties, and his gout leaves him barely able to walk and dependent on a wheeled chair.

By A Feast for Crows , she is dissatisfied with her father, believing him to be weak. The plot is foiled and Myrcella is wounded in the kidnapping attempt.
As Arianne confronts Doran after he foils her plans, her father reveals that he has been plotting revenge on Tywin Lannister for many years and was waiting for the perfect time to strike.
Her fate is unknown. Ser Quentyn Martell is the second child and oldest son of Doran Martell. He is described as intelligent, serious, and dutiful,  though not particularly handsome.

Edmure Tully is the third child, only son, and heir of Lord Hoster Tully. However, he is also said to have a large heart and his decisions are often rash and emotional.
However, the wedding is a trap and the Stark-Tully army is massacred, breaching ancient guest right customs. Edmure is taken to Casterly Rock, where he and the remaining members of House Tully are to spend the rest of their lives as prisoners to House Lannister.
Roslin is to remain at the Twins , and the pair is promised to be reunited after the birth of their child. During one encounter Hoster called him the black goat of House Tully.
Brynden mused that since their sigil was fish, he was the "Blackfish" of the family. He accompanied Lysa to the Vale.
He resigns from his position and joins Robb Stark and his bannermen. His efforts win Robb several battles throughout A Clash of Kings. In A Feast for Crows , Brynden surrenders the Tully seat of Riverrun to spare further bloodshed, but he himself escapes capture.
His whereabouts are unknown. He is called the Lord of the Crossing as the placement of his castle allows him to control who crosses the river, giving Walder Frey considerable strategic importance.
He is known for having over a hundred descendants and taking eight total wives. He emphasizes family loyalty and believes in taking care of relations, including those who disappoint him.
Since crossing the Twins is a necessity for Robb, Walder is able to negotiate marriage contracts between his house and House Stark.
The wedding is a trap, with Robb, his key supporters, and most of his army massacred during the feast, a direct violation of ancient guest right customs.
He then openly swears loyalty to House Lannister and his second son Emmon Frey receives Riverrun , the seat of House Tully, as a reward, with advantageous marriages for other descendants of his.
However, the people of the Riverlands refuse to support his rule, and a shadowy guerrilla war erupts that Walder Frey struggles to control. House Frey is so large and factional that many of the Freys hate each other, aspiring to become Lord of the Crossing themselves.
Its seat is at Highgarden. Its coat of arms displays a golden rose on a green field, and its words are Growing Strong. Bastards born in the Reach are generally given the surname "Flowers".

When his sister Margaery is married to Joffrey Baratheon , he joins the Kingsguard. He volunteers to lead the assault on Dragonstone in A Feast for Crows so Cersei Lannister will send military assistance to defend his native Highgarden from the Greyjoys.
He successfully captures Dragonstone but is badly wounded and near death. By the end of A Dance with Dragons , he barely clings to life. In the HBO show, he is killed by a wildfire explosion in the Sept of Baelor after his trial, along with his sister and father.
The character is a composite of the three Tyrell sons. The adaptation openly depicts Loras and Renly Baratheon as lovers, an interaction only obliquely addressed within the novels.
She is an intelligent, beautiful, and shrewd young woman, and despite being only sixteen, she is manipulative and adept at political intrigue.
She is described as a wizened and cunning old woman with a wicked wit and a sharp tongue, and is known for openly stating her opinion.
