link=Stannis Baratheon

Lord Stannis Baratheon is the secondborn son of Lord Steffon Baratheon of Storm's End and Lady Cassana Estermont. He grew up in the shadow of his older brother, Robert, and was an introverted, solemn, and joyless child, mature beyond his years. Stannis' parents died in 278 AC, when their ship the Windproud was smashed against the rocks in Shipbreaker Bay, an event witnessed by Stannis and Robert. This caused Stannis to lose his faith in the Seven.

During Robert's Rebellion, Stannis chose his brother Robert over his king, Aerys II Targaryen. During the siege of Storm's End, he held the castle for Robert for nearly a year, almost starving to death with the castle's garrison whilst Lords Tyrell and Redwyne feasted in the sight of their walls. Only the arrival of the smuggler Davos Seaworth with a ship full of onions and fish allowed them to hold out long enough. Stannis later knighted Davos and took him into his service. However, he also insisted on punishing Davos for the deeds he had committed as a smuggler.

Following the conclusion of Robert's Rebellion, Stannis was made Lord of Dragonstone by Robert, while their younger brother Renly, at the time only a child, was given the richer seat of Storm's End, leaving Stannis resentful. Although a capable commander who fought loyally for his king in Greyjoy's Rebellion, Stannis always felt unappreciated by Robert. Seated on Robert's small council as the master of ships, Stannis helped Hand of the King Jon Arryn rule the kingdom. Read more…

Feature quote

  • “Three corns and one roast raven. Very good, m’lord, only Hobb’s made boiled eggs, black sausage, and apples stewed with prunes. The apples stewed with prunes are excellent, except for the prunes. I won’t eat prunes myself. Well, there was one time when Hobb chopped them up with chestnuts and carrots and hid them in a hen. Never trust a cook, my lord. They’ll prune you when you least expect it.” —Dolorous Edd to Jon Snow[1]
  • “When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives.” —Eddard Stark[2]
  • “There is no creature on earth half so terrifying as a truly just man.” —Varys[3]
