House Casterly of Casterly Rock is the extinct house of the First Men that ruled the Westerlands until the arrival of the Andal adventurers. It was founded by Corlos, son of Caster, a huntsman, when he slew a lion but spared his cubs. The old gods showed him where to find a gold mine. The Casterlys were said to be the richest in Westeros although they never called themselves Kings.

According to legend, Lann the Clever tricked them out of Casterly Rock with no weapons but his wits. Thus, House Casterly was extinguished and Lann started the line of the Lannisters, which would rule the Rock from then on.[1]

There is no information regarding House Casterly's banner or motto, nor any member of the house has been referred to by name.
