Lodos was a drowned man who claimed to be the living son of the Drowned God.


Following the death of Harren the Black, Lodos was crowned King of the Iron Islands with a driftwood crown by twoscore priests gathered at Nagga's Bones on Old Wyk.

When King Aegon I Targaryen attacked the Iron Islands to put down several rebellious would-be kings, Lodos turned to his god and called on the krakens of the deep to drag down Aegon's warships. When the beasts failed to appear, Lodos filled his robes with stones and walked into the sea to "take counsel" with his father. Thousands followed him. Their corpses would wash up on the shores for years to come, except for Lodos's own body.[1]


During the reign of King Aenys I Targaryen, a man boasting of being the priest-king Lodos reborn appeared in the Iron Isles.[2]
