Daven Lannister is a member of the large Lannister family. He is the son of Stafford Lannister a cousin and brother in law of Tywin Lannister.

In the books

Daven's father was killed in the Battle of Lannisport by Rickard Karstark. Stafford Lannister was not thougth very high of but Daven was held in higher esteem[1]. He gathered the remaining soldiers of his fathers army and made preparations to invade the Riverlands again[2].

After the Red Wedding and Kevan Lannister's refusal to serve as Hand of the King Cersei named Daven Warden of the West and commanded him to lay siege the last Stark forces in Riverrun[3]. During the siege he had trouble getting enough supplies for his forces and getting the Frey contingent of the army to obey him. Ryman Frey refused his request for food and the Freys quarrelled among themselves. Daven wanted to storm the castle but could not persuade the other leaders to do this[4].

When Jaime arrives to take over the command Daven is pleased to be relieved of this task and inform Jaime of the troubles during the siege.

Appearence and personality

Daven has brown eyes. After his father was killed by Rickard Karstark he vowed to let his hair grow until he had avenged him. Because of this he he has long yellow hair, a thick moustache and beard. He looks like a lion[5]. Although his father killer was executed by Robb Stark for treason he apparently has not yet cut his hear.

Daven is blunt and outspoken. He discussed with Jaime about the real loyalty of the Riverland noble in from a few Riverland pages. During the warcounsel he says that Ryman Frey is drunk in stead of sick [6].

Family

Stafford was planning to betroth his son to Desmera Redwyne but this was annulled because Tywin arranged a Frey wife for him to confirm the Lannister - Frey alliance. Daven has no love for the Freys but states that he would "wed and bed his stoat [7].
