Appearance and Character

Edric was born at Starfall in Dorne to Lord Dayne and his wife. Edric's mother did not have enough milk for him when he was born, so he was nursed by a woman named Wylla, the alleged mother of Jon Snow. When Edric was seven, his aunt Allyria was betrothed to Lord Beric Dondarrion, with whom Edric went to Blackhaven to serve as a page. At ten, Lord Beric raised Edric to squire. He once won a prize riding at rings.
A Game of ThronesHand's tourney in King's Landing where he sees Lord Eddard Stark. As Lord Beric Dondarrion's squire, Edric is part of the force sent by Eddard to the riverlands to apprehend Ser Gregor Clegane. After they are ambushed in the battle at the Mummer's Ford, Edric pulls the dying Beric out of the river and stands over the body while the battle rages around them.
A Storm of Swords
Lord Edric continues to squire for the revived Lord Beric, who establishes the brotherhood without banners. They move throughout the riverlands, fighting to protect smallfolk from the War of the Five Kings. Ned fights alongside Beric during the battle at the burning septry. In their time in the brotherhood, Edric befriends Arya Stark, to whom he reveals that he and Jon Snow are milk brothers; that is, they were both nursed by the same woman, Wylla, who had been in service to the Daynes for some years.
