Tom Tangletongue was a stammerer from Dragonstone who heard more than he said. His father was Tom Tanglebeard, and his cousin was Ser Marston Waters. Tom and his father were referred to collectively as the "Two Toms."[2]


Tom learned about the death of the Grey Ghost from Volantenes. He and his father aided Ser Alfred Broome during the fall of Dragonstone. After Ser Marston Waters saved Lady Baela Targaryen from Alfred, Tom took her to Dragonstone's maester.[2]

Tom was killed during the purge of Aegon II's loyalists following the green defeat at the Battle of the Kingsroad. He was surprised in the castle yards as he left the stables and promptly beheaded.[3]
