Ser Daven Lannister - Fantasy Flight Games ©
Warden of the West|
|Book(s)||A Feast for Crows (Appears)|
Appearance & Personality
He has lively hazel eyes and a pug nose. At the time of the Siege of Riverrun, he has long yellow hair, a thick mustache, sidewhiskers as thick as a hedgerow and a beard, making Ser Jaime Lannister think that he looks like a lion.
Daven is blunt and outspoken. He talks with his cousin Jaime Lannister about the true loyalty of the Riverlands nobles in front of some their pages. During the war council, he openly says that Ryman Frey is drunk instead of sick. He can also make a jovial impression, joking with Jaime about the loss of his hand and the drunk abuse of Ryman Frey.
A Clash of Kings
A Storm of Swords
Robb Stark executes Lord Rickard Karstark for treason, after he kills Lannister hostages to avenge his sons' deaths in the Battle of the Whispering Wood, robbing Ser Daven of his chance to take revenge on the man who killed his father, Ser Stafford Lannister. Ser Devan keeps letting his hair grow, although his vow has become obsolete.
As part of the pact between Lord Tywin Lannister and Lord Walder Frey concerning the betrayal of Robb Stark, Daven has to wed a Frey to consolidate the alliance between the two houses. This constitutes a problem, as Stafford, at the time of his death, had been negotiating to betroth his son to Desmera Redwyne, although an agreement had not been reached. Daven doesn't like the Freys, but he says later that he will "wed and bed his stoat", as he knows what happened to Robb Stark.
A Feast for Crows
After Ser Kevan Lannister's refusal to serve as Hand of the King, Queen Cersei names Ser Daven Warden of the West and commands him to lay siege to Riverrun, where Ser Brynden Tully still holds a sizable garrison.
The siege does not go easy. Brynden Tully has taken all the food he could find to Riverrun, so the Lannister army can not live off the land. Furthermore, there are quarrels among the besiegers. The Freys are not helping their allies and only gather food for themselves. In addition, a part of the forces consists of Riverland nobles who have surrendered. Although taken back in the King's peace, they are still less than enthusiastic about fighting their former allies. Daven wants to storm the castle, but is not able to persuade his commanders. 
When Jaime arrives to take over the command, Daven is pleased to be relieved of this task and happily informs Jaime of the troubles.
