Ironmen become Drowned Men by being submerged in salt water a second time in earnest and brought back to life with a crude form of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Not all men are successfully revived, however.

They wear roughspun robes of mottled green, grey, and blue, the colors of the Drowned God. They carry driftwood cudgels to show their devotion in battle, and skins of saltwater to perform ritual anointment as well as to sate their thirst.[1][2]

While Priests of the Drowned God, must not shed the blood of ironborn, they have no such reservation about other methods of killing, such as drowning. [1]

Priests of the Drowned God bless new ships, speaking invocations and pouring sea water over prows [3] "Lord God who drowned for us," is part of the litany of the Drowned God's priests. [1]

Known Drowned Men


My drowned men, god’s servants, just as I am. I have no secrets from them, nor from our god, beside whose holy sea I stand.[1]
Aeron Greyjoy

The god took me deep beneath the waves and drowned the worthless thing I was. When he cast me forth again he gave me eyes to see, ears to hear, and a voice to spread his word, that I might be his prophet and teach his truth to those who have forgotten.[1]
Aeron Greyjoy
