Appearance and Character

See also: Images of Garlan Tyrell

Garlan is similar in appearance to his younger brother, Ser Loras Tyrell, but he is taller, more broadly built, and has a beard. Garlan is five years older than Loras.[3] He is an exceptionally skilled swordsman, preferring to train against three or four swordsmen, so as to better prepare himself for actual battle,[4] but his lack of interest in gaining glory makes him less famous than Loras.

History

Garlan was plump in his youth. His elder brother, Willas, shrewdly dubbed him the Gallant to save him from the indignity that befell an uncle, nicknamed Garth the Gross.[5] He is married to Lady Leonette of House Fossoway.

Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

Ser Garlan takes part in the Battle of the Blackwater, playing the part of Renly Baratheon by dressing in his armor, to scare the ignorant men-at-arms among Stannis Baratheon's army.[6] He leads the Tyrell-Lannister army's vanguard and slays his opposite number, Ser Guyard Morrigen, in single combat.[7]

A Storm of Swords

Garlan is raised to Lord of Brightwater Keep, the former seat of attainted House Florent, as a reward for the Battle of Blackwater.[8]

Garlan speaks and dances with Sansa Stark during her wedding to Tyrion Lannister. He tries to assuage Sansa's fears about marrying Tyrion, despite the fact that most of the Tyrells are avoiding any interaction with Sansa in the wake of their attempts to marry Sansa off to Willas Tyrell having been foiled. He remarks that Tyrion is a "bigger man than he seems" and states that she would be happier with him than Loras, which implies that he knows of his brother's preferred sexual orientation.[5]

Later, Garlan and his wife, Leonette Fossoway, attend the wedding of his sister, Margaery Tyrell, and King Joffrey Baratheon. While there, he speaks to Tyrion, praising his plans which helped save King's Landing from Stannis Baratheon's forces, and tells Tyrion that he is "made to do great deeds". He also rebukes Joffrey for publicly shaming Tyrion and destroying Tyrion's wedding gift, Lives of Four Kings. Garlan unsuccessfully tries to save the boy king when he chokes to death.[9]

While the Kingsguard meet in the White Sword Tower, Garlan guards King Tommen Baratheon.[10]

A Feast for Crows

From King's Landing, Garlan brings half of the Tyrell strength back to the Reach to press his claim on Brightwater Keep, which is held by Ser Colin Florent.[11][12] He is preparing to take Brightwater when news of the ironborn's conquest of the Shield Islands reaches him. He begins to gather men from across the Reach to retake the islands.[13]
