History

Orys was the rumored bastard half-brother of Aegon I Targaryen by their father Aerion. He was one of Aegon's fiercest commanders and was regarded as Aegon's only true friend. He rose through the ranks and became Hand of the King after Aegon's landing on mainland Westeros and his coronation.[3]

During the War of Conquest Orys and Rhaenys Targaryen, with her dragon Meraxes, were tasked with taking Storm's End. The Storm King, Argilac Durrandon, hearing of the fate of Harrenhal, knew his formidable walls would not protect him from dragonfire. Argilac rode out to give open battle. Orys slew Argilac the Arrogant, the last Storm King. After the battle, Argella Durrandon, the daughter of Argilac, declared herself the Storm Queen and continued to hold Storm's End until her household turned against her to avoid the same fate of Harrenhal. They delivered her to Orys, naked and chained. Orys, however, covered her with his cloak and treated her chivalrously.

Aegon rewarded Orys with Storm's End. Orys took Argella as his wife and adopted the stag banner, honors and words of the Durrandons, Ours is the Fury, forming House Baratheon.[4][2]
