Appearance and Character

See also: Images of Edric Storm

Edric is a sturdily attractive youth, with jet-black hair and deep blue eyes. He is said to be "the very image" of his father, although he also has the large ears common to House Florent.[2][3][4] He is charming and courteous, but also fierce and proud.[3][4] In his manner, Davos Seaworth compares him to both Robert and Renly Baratheon.[5]

History

Edric was conceived by Robert and Delena on the wedding night of Stannis Baratheon and Selyse Florent, in the couple's own wedding bed. Stannis saw this as an insult to his honor, so he sent Edric to Storm's End to foster with his other uncle, Renly Baratheon.[6] As Delena was a noblewoman, Edric was acknowledged by his father.[7][2] He was raised in relative comfort at Storm's End under the guardianship of Cortnay Penrose, Renly's castellan, who was very fond of him.[8]

Edric was sent a gift from his father every year on his name day. These included a pony, a sable cloak, and a miniature warhammer similar to his father's own weapon. Edric would write to King's Landing to thank his father for the gifts, but upon receiving the letters Robert would laugh and ask Varys what he had sent that year.[5]

Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

When Stannis besieges Storm's End, Cortnay Penrose resists in fear of what Stannis would do to Edric. Ultimately Stannis takes the castle and ships Edric to Dragonstone, where he spends time with Stannis's daughter Shireen.[3]

A Storm of Swords

Melisandre pressures Stannis to sacrifice Edric, as she believes that his royal blood would wake dragons from stone to help Stannis. Conversely, Davos Seaworth pressures Stannis to spare him.[4] Concerned that Stannis was coming to favor Melisandre's position, Davos, with the help of Pylos and a small group of king's men, has Edric secretly shipped away to the Free Cities aboard the Mad Prendos.[9] Davos appoints Andrew Estermont, Edric's cousin, to act as his guardian. Gerald Gower, Triston of Tally Hill, Lewys the Fishwife, and Omer Blackberry also accompany Edric, to be his guards and protectors.[10]

A Feast for Crows

Edric is sailing across the narrow sea to Essos, on the Mad Prendos with his guardian and protectors.[11]

A Dance with Dragons

Quotes by Edric

I won’t go pray to the Lord of Light. I am a Warrior’s man, like my father.[9]

Quotes about Edric

Did the boy charm you? He has that gift. He got it from his father, with the blood. He knows he is a king’s son, but chooses to forget that he is bastard-born.[5]
Stannis Baratheon, to Davos Seaworth


The Lord of Light cherishes the innocent. There is no sacrifice more precious. From his king’s blood and his untainted fire, a dragon shall be born.[4]
Melisandre, to Stannis Baratheon


Davos: His name is Edric Storm, sire.
Stannis: I know his name. Was there ever a name so apt? It proclaims his bastardy, his high birth, and the turmoil he brings with him. Edric Storm. There, I have said it. Are you satisfied, my lord Hand?[4]

Davos Seaworth and Stannis Baratheon


If Stannis is Azor Ahai come again, does that mean Edric Storm must play the part of Nissa Nissa?[4]
