Gerion Lannister was a member of House Lannister.

Contents

Character

Gerion was the youngest and most reckless brother of Tywin Lannister, the head of the Lannister house. He was said to be a man quick to laugh and had a gift for making others laugh.[1]

Tyrion and Jaime often refer to him as their favorite uncle.[1] He is remembered fondly by the former for prizing and supporting Tyrion when the dwarf recited historical facts memorized by heart or cartwheeled across the supper table in Casterly Rock's great hall.

History

Like his brothers, Kevan and Tygett, Gerion was overshadowed by their older brother Tywin Lannister. While Kevan built up a life near Tywin and Tygett tried to be independent, Gerion mocked this "game" and made jokes.[2]

Gerion once gifted King Robert with a gilded dagger, complete with ivory grip and a sapphire on the pommel.[1] He also gifted Tyrion on his nameday with the books Wonders and Wonders Made by Man by Lomas Longstrider and often had Tyrion recite the sixteen wonders of the World.[3]

In 276 AL, Gerion may have been one of Cersei's two uncles to be unhorsed by Prince Rhaegar at a tourney held at Lannisport. Later, circa 292 AL, Gerion went on a quest to find the ancestral sword Brightroar and any other treasures that might have survived the Doom of Valyria.[4]

Almost a decade passed after his ship the Laughing Lion left Lannisport but Gerion never returned.[3] Tywin Lannister sent men to look for his lost brother and they traced him as far as Volantis, where half his crew had deserted him because of his intent to sail into the Smoking Sea. He had to buy slaves to replace them [3].

Gerion left behind a natural daughter named Joy Hill. The mother is not mentioned in the books.
