Lord Steffon Baratheon was the Lord of Storm's End and father to Robert Baratheon, Stannis Baratheon, and Renly Baratheon. He perished at sea in sight of Storm's End, along with his wife Cassana Estermont, while returning from a trip to the Free Cities. He was the first cousin of King Aerys II Targaryen.
On the wake of the Defiance of Duskendale, King Aerys summoned Steffon to court and named him to the small council. On 278AC Aerys sent Steffon to Volantis to find a bride "of noble birth from an old Valyrian bloodline" for Prince Rhaegar. In this they failed but Steffon did send a message to Storm's End saying that he had found a very good fool. According to him the fool was so funny he "would teach Stannis how to laugh".
On the return voyage his ship, the Windproud, got caught in a storm while in Shipbreaker Bay and sank, killing Steffon along with his wife and one hundred men. The only survivor was the fool, Patchface, who had lost his wits.
