Defender of the Fords
House Caswell of Bitterbridge is a noble house from the Reach. Their seat is Bitterbridge, where the Roseroad meets the river Mander. Their blazon is a yellow centaur with bow on white. The Caswells carry the title Defender of the Fords.
During the Dance of the Dragons, Tom Flowers, the Bastard of Bitterbridge, was one of the commanders during the Battle on the Honeywine. He was burned alive by the dragon Tessarion when Daeron the Daring joined the battle.
House Caswell fought for the Targaryens during the Blackfyre Rebellion. Ser Kyle claimed to have saved the life of Lord Armond Caswell, Lord of Bitterbridge during the rebellion. Armond's son, Lord Joffrey Caswell, faced Kyle in the Whitewalls Tourney, unhorsing the knight in the first tilt.
A Clash of Kings
Lord Lorent Caswell is a wispy, young man. He follows his liege, Mace Tyrell, in declaring for Renly Baratheon on the outset of the War of the Five Kings. Renly's host encamps beneath the walls of Bitterbridge, which is where Lady Catelyn Tully meets him, finding his army engaging in tourney and feast. After Renly's death, Lord Caswell shut himself up within Bitterbridge.
