Robert Arryn, also known as Sweetrobin,[2] is the only son of Lord Jon Arryn and Lady Lysa Tully. He is the new head of House Arryn, Lord of the Eyrie, Defender of the Vale, and Warden of the East.

Robert is named after King Robert I Baratheon.[4] In the television adaptation Game of Thrones the character is named Robin Arryn to prevent confusion with the king, and he is played by Lino Facioli.

Appearance and Character

Robert is six years old but small and painfully thin for his age. He is pale with brown hair and big eyes[1] that are runny.[5] Robert has spindly arms and legs, a soft concave chest, a little belly,[6] and his skin is splotchy.[5]

Young Robert is spoiled and whiny, prone to crying when his dolls are taken away[1] or damaged.[5] He enjoys puppetry shows,[7] as well as songs and stories about animals[8] and the Winged Knight.[6] Robert likes to play come-into-my-castle, hopfrog, and spin-the-sword, although the court of the Eyrie allows him to win.[8] He enjoys being told how strong he is, but does not know how to ride.[6]

Robert is afflicted with a disease that causes frequent seizures. Maester Colemon bleeds him with leeches[5][9] and administers dreamwine and milk of the poppy to help Robert sleep.[9] Sweetmilk helps Robert with shaking, but Colemon is cautious because continuous use of sweetsleep has an increasing level of toxicity.
