Ser Tygett Lannister was a member of House Lannister.
Tygett was the second brother of Tywin Lannister, the head of the Lannister house. He was said to be a knight of considerable prowess in battle; his sister Genna Lannister tells Jaime she believes he fights like him. He was also said to develop into an angry man due to constantly living in the shadow of his older brother, Tywin.
Tyrion remembers his uncle with some fondness, recalling him to be kinder than Tywin.
Like his brothers, Kevan and Gerion, Tygett was overshadowed by their older brother Tywin Lannister. According to his sister Genna, Tygett tried to be his own man, but he could never match Tywin and became angry through the years.
Tygett tried to be his own man, but he could never match your father, and that just made him angrier as the years went by.
