Ser Horas Redwyne, mocked as Ser Horror, is a knight of House Redwyne and heir to the Arbor. He is the son of Paxter Redwyne, Lord of the Arbor, and Lady Mina Tyrell, and he is the older twin to Ser Hobber.
Appearance and Character
Horas is homely with orange hair and a square, freckled face.
Horas despises Samwell Tarly, the son of Lord Randyll Tarly. Sansa Stark and Jeyne Poole mock Horas and his brother, Ser Hobber, as Ser Horror and Ser Slobber, respectively. Queen Cersei Lannister is unable to tell the the twins apart and does not consider them to be particularly intelligent.
Horas has a chestnut mare.
When Samwell Tarly was sent to the Arbor to become a page, Horas and Hobber teased and humiliated him. When Sam begged for quarter while training in the practice yard, Horas made him squeal like a pig. Horas was supposed to become a ward at Horn Hill and learn from Lord Randyll Tarly, but the plans fell through because of Sam's unsuitability at the Arbor.
A Game of Thrones
A Clash of Kings
The Iron Throne keeps the Redwyne twins as hostages for the good behavior of their father, Lord Paxter Redwyne, during the War of the Five Kings. Unlike other lords from the Reach, Paxter refrains from joining his forces to that of Renly Baratheon, the uncle and rival of King Joffrey I Baratheon.
During the tourney on King Joffrey's name day, Horas encourages Hobber in the lists, then rushes to his brother's aid after his is unhorsed by Ser Meryn Trant. Joffrey is not impressed when Horas unhorses an elderly knight bedecked with silver griffins on a striped blue and white field.
Horas and Hobber attempt to sneak out of King's Landing by bribing a guard and sailing away on Moonrunner, but the plot is discovered by Lord Varys. Tyrion Lannister, the Hand of the King, has the guard seized and encouraged to join the Night's Watch, and the twins are placed under closer supervision.
A Storm of Swords
A Feast for Crows
Horas, Hobber, and their father Paxter attend Tywin's funeral at the Great Sept.
According to Taena Merryweather, the twins are both in love with Queen Margaery, now the wife of King Tommen I Baratheon, forgetting their arguments over who will be the next Lord of the Arbor and instead wanting to join the Kingsguard just to be near her. Horas and Hobber visit with Margaery often, with Horas taking up the lute and Hobber bringing fruit and flowers. During one of Margaery's riding expeditions, the brothers escort Meredyth Crane and Janna Fossoway. On another occasion, Queen Regent Cersei Lannister sees Ser Osmund Kettleblack sparring in the yard with one of the brothers.
As part of her plan to remove Margaery, Cersei has the Blue Bard include the Redwyne twins among those alleged to have slept with the younger queen. So as not not to lose the support of Redwyne fleet, Cersei intends for the brothers to be falsely accused. Arrest warrants are signed for Horas and Hobber, and they are given comfortable rooms in a tower.
A Dance with Dragons
The Redwyne twins are declared innocent.
This is a feeble show.
