Buford Bulwer (or Ser Theomore Bulwer[N 1]), better known as the Old Ox, was a knight of some renown during the reign of Aerys I Targaryen.[1]


Early in the reign of Aerys I Targaryen, Buford is past sixty, and he has become fat and soft. He is blind in his right eye. During the Whitewalls tourney, he wore blood red armor and a helm decorated with black bull's horns on either side.[1]


Buford is said to have slain forty men in the Battle of the Redgrass Field. However, according to Ser Maynard Plumm, the number of Buford had slain on the Redgrass Field grew higher every single passing year.[1]

Ser Buford attended the Whitewalls tourney in 212 AC. He faced Ser Uthor Underleaf in the tourney, but was defeated in the fifth tilt. He was injured upon being unhorsed and taken to the maester.[1]
