Recent Events

A Game of Thrones

Lord Bryce participates in the Hand's tourney in King's Landing given in the honor of Lord Eddard Stark, but he is defeated by Ser Jaime Lannister of the Kingsguard.[3] Bryce's name is read aloud during King Joffrey I Baratheon's first court session, placing him in a list of nobles who are instructed to come to King's Landing to swear fealty to Joffrey or else be named traitors to the realm.[4]

A Clash of Kings

When Lord Renly Baratheon declares himself king, Lord Bryce chooses to support him and is named to Renly's new Rainbow Guard, in which he wears the color orange, which gives him the nickname Bryce the Orange.[5] Bryce is among the nobles from Renly's camp beneath Bitterbridge that attend the feast, where he goads his fellow Rainbow Guard Ser Robar Royce into juggling daggers.[6]

When Renly learns that Stannis Baratheon has laid siege to Sorm's End, Bryce travels with him to the castle. He is present at the failed parley beneath the walls of Storm's End between Renly and Stannis. Renly gives him command of the left flank in the coming battle between the brothers.[7] However, before the battle can take place, Renly is assassinated by Melisandre.

After Renly's death, Bryce rallies to Stannis, offering to fight Ser Cortnay Penrose in single combat, if it would win Stannis Storm's End, but he is rebuffed.[8] After the castle is taken, Bryce tells Stannis that Melisandre should be sent back to Dragonstone before the assault on King's Landing, lest it be thought that Stannis owed the crown to her spells.[9]

In the battle of the Blackwater, Bryce is killed in single combat by Ser Philip Foote. His lands, titles and incomes are granted to Philip by the Iron Throne.[2]

A Dance with Dragons

Bryce's bastard half-brother, Ser Rolland Storm, is a pretender to Nightsong, laying claim under Stannis's banner.[10]
