Tyrion's High Septon is a High Septon of the Faith of the Seven chosen to his office by Tyrion Lannister after the death of his predecessor. His real name is unknown as High Septons once elected to office abandon their names.
Appearance and Personality
The High Septon is a bent old man with a wispy grey beard and spotted hands. He is regarded as a good man, though weak willed.
A Clash of Kings
After the death of the previous High Septon during the Riot of King's Landing, Tyrion Lannister selects his replacement. The new High Septon, while not corrupt like the previous one, is still considered a pawn.
A Storm of Swords
The High Septon prays with Lancel Lannister after the boy is badly wounded during the Battle of the Blackwater. Lancel confesses to bedding Cersei Lannister to His High Holiness and expresses his anger with her, but the High Septon says he must forgive her.
A Feast for Crows
The High Septon reportedly died in his sleep. Cersei, paranoid of what the High Septon might know and the fact that he was selected by her brother Tyrion, had Osney Kettleblack sneak into the High Septon's chamber while he sleeps and suffocate him with a pillow. He is succeeded by the High Sparrow, who was imposed on the Most Devout by a group of sparrows.
