Behind the Scenes
According to the semi-canon unabridged version of "The Westerlands" chapter from The World of Ice & Fire, Denys Marbrand was the father of Lady Jeyne Marbrand, wife to Lord Tytos Lannister. In this earlier draft of the chapter, he became a strong supporter of Tytos once he became Lord of Casterly Rock. When King Aegon V Targaryen became angered with the over-grasping House Tarbeck, Tytos sent Denys to capture Lord Walderan Tarbeck and Lady Ellyn Tarbeck. Roger Reyne, Lord of Castamere and Ellyn's brother, led a host in attacking the Marbrand men in the night, slaying the old warrior Denys before he reached Tarbeck Hall. Ser Reynard Reyne convinced Tytos that the attack was a misunderstanding, claiming that Roger was unaware of Denys's identity and thought he was attacking outlaws.
