Godric Borrell is the head of House Borrell.[1] His titles include Lord of Sweetsister, Shield of Sisterton, Master of Breakwater Castle, and Keeper of the Night Lamp.[2]

Appearance

Godric is a big, fleshy, ugly man with massive shoulders. Coarse white hair grows from his cheeks and chin. He is bald on the top of his scalp, with a lumpy red-veined nose and webbing between his three middle fingers.

History

During the War of the Usurper, Eddard Stark washed up on Sweetsister while trying to sail to the North to raise his banners. Godric's father could easily have turned Ned over to King Aerys II for a reward, but instead freed him, saying, "If you lose, you were never here."

The Sisters have always had amiable relations with smugglers. When Stannis Baratheon was Master of Ships, he sent a fleet to Sisterton without Godric's leave and made him hang a dozen good friends. Stannis threatened to hang Godric as well should some ship sink because the Night Lamp had gone black.[2]

Recent Events

A Dance with Dragons

A group of Freys led by Rhaegar Frey arrive at Sweetsister en route to White Harbor, bringing Lord Wyman Manderly the bones of Manderly's son Wendel. Disdainful of Wyman, Godric states he would have hanged the Freys if they had extended him such a "courtesy".

Godric is having supper when Davos Seaworth is brought before him. Godric updates Davos on the current events, including the death of Tywin Lannister. He tells Davos the story of Eddard Stark's visit, recounting to Davos about a fisherman and his daughter who brought Ned Stark in secret across the Bite to the North at the beginning of Robert's Rebellion. If Godric is to be believed, Ned left her with a bag of silver and a bastard in her belly, which she named Jon Snow after Lord Jon Arryn.

It becomes evident that Godric harbors doubts about Cersei Lannister's ability to rule, as he notes that Davos would be in chains if her uncle Kevan Lannister were in power. He tells Davos of his father's parting words to Ned Stark: "If you lose, you were never here." Davos replies, "No more then I was."[2] Godric then allows Davos to leave for White Harbor to attempt to curry favor with Lord Wyman Manderly.[3]
