Ser Tygett Lannister was a knight of House Lannister.

Character

Born as the fourth of Tytos Lannister's children by Lady Jeyne Marbrand, Tygett was the third of four brothers. A younger brother of Tywin Lannister, Tygett always felt he was living in his brother's shadow, which made him an angry man.[2] Tygett's relationship with his eldest brother was notoriously stormy.[3]

Tygett was a knight of considerable prowess in battle. His sister, Genna, believes her nephew Jaime fights like him.[2]

History

Tygett fought in the War of the Ninepenny Kings in 260 AC, where he showed his courage and his skill at arms. He killed a grown man during his first battle, and three more later on in the war, including a knight of the Golden Company.[4] A year later, he was present when Tywin Lannister brought House Tarbeck down in the rebellion of House Tarbeck and House Reyne.

By 270 AC, King Aerys II Targaryen had come to disregard Tywin Lannister, so when Tywin tried to name Tygett as the master-at-arms at the Red Keep, the King passed Tygett over in favor for Ser Willem Darry.[3]

In 276 AC, Tygett participated in a tourney held by Tywin at Lannisport, in a celebration for the birth of Prince Viserys Targaryen. During that tourney, he was unhorsed by Prince Rhaegar Targaryen.[3]

Overshadowed by his eldest brother, Tygett tried to be his own man. According to his Genna, he could never match Tywin, causing him to grow angry as the years went by.[2]

Tygett was married to Darlessa Marbrand. They had one son, Tyrek.[5][6] Tygett eventually died of a pox.[5]

Tyrion Lannister, Tygett's nephew, remembers his uncle with some fondness, recalling him to be kinder than Tywin.[7] At one occasion, when young Tyrion asked for a dragon as a present for his nameday, Tygett told him that dragons died out a century before.[8]
