The Elder Brother is the leader of the community on the Quiet Isle. He is reputed to have powers as a healer.[2]


The Elder Brother is a tall man, with a large, square head, shrewd eyes, a veined, red nose, and a heavy jaw. He shaves his head.


The Elder Brother was the third son of a family of knights, and he had nothing to offer the woman he wanted to marry but the shield, sword and horse of his own knighthood. He fought for House Targaryen at the Battle of the Trident where he was knocked unconscious. Others thought him dead so they stripped his armor and possessions and dumped his body into the Trident. He floated downstream where he woke up naked on the Quiet Isle. He spent the next ten years in silence.[2]
