Damon Lannister, better known as the Grey Lion, was Lord of Casterly Rock and head of House Lannister during the reign of King Daeron II Targaryen.[3] He wed Cerissa Brax and was the father of Tybolt and Gerold.

History

Damon, who was not lord at the time, was unhorsed by Ser Arlan of Pennytree in a tourney at Lannisport.[3] He was also once unhorsed in a tourney by Ser Tommard Heddle. During the First Blackfyre Rebellion, Lord Damon was defeated by Ser Quentyn Ball.[4]

Lord Damon participated in the tourney at Ashford Meadow in 209 AC, beginning the tourney as a challenger. In his first tilt, he challenged Lord Leo Longthorn. He yielded after Leo ripped his helm off with a well placed lance.[3]

Lord Damon died of the Great Spring Sickness in 210 AC and his eldest son Tybolt succeeded him as Lord of Casterly Rock.[4]

Notes:
  1. In 298 AC, it has been roughly ninety years ago since Gowen and Tya were wed, placing their marriage around 208 AC. Therefore Tya was a contemporary to Lords Damon (d.210 AC) and Tybolt (d.212 AC).
