Harry Strickland, also known as Homeless Harry Strickland, is the current commander to the Golden Company.


Harry Strickland looks little like a warrior. He is portly, with a big round head, mild grey eyes and thinning grey hair that he brushes sideways to cover up a bald spot. He likes elephants.[1]


Harry Strickland's great grandsire lost his lands when he rose in rebellion with Daemon Blackfyre so Harry was born in exile and raised with the Golden Company as was his father and his grandfather. He likes to boast "Gold for four generations". He also complains often of blisters on his feet from long marches and is not the bravest of men. Prior to his elevation to leadership Harry was the Company Paymaster.[1]

After the death of Blackheart, Harry was made the new company commander and he brought the company to Volantis. Jon Connington and Aegon Targaryen meet him and his commanders.[1] When the company invaded Westeros, Harry was always weary and reluctant to fight. Connington looks down on him constantly as a coward.[2]
