Jaime Lannister, known as the Kingslayer, is the second child and first-born son of Lord Tywin Lannister of Casterly Rock and his wife Lady Joanna. Raised to the Kingsguard of the Mad King Aerys Targaryen at the age of fifteen, Jaime was the youngest member of the order in history. He earned his nickname when he slew King Aerys at the end of Robert's Rebellion. For most of their lives, Jaime has participated in an incestuous relationship with his twin sister Cersei. He has fathered three children by her: Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen, though the realm believes their father to be Cersei's husband, King Robert.
After a confrontation with Eddard Stark Jaime flees the capital. Shortly after he invades the Riverlands at the head of a Lannister army. He gains a few victories but is taken unaware by Robb Stark who defeats and captures him. He is imprisoned in Riverrun, where he remains a captive for a year.
