Balon Byrch was a knight of House Byrch. He served as a captain of the City Watch of King's Landing during the reign of King Viserys I Targaryen. During the Dance of the Dragons, he commanded the Old Gate.
After the death of Ser Luthor Largent, Balon was made the new Commander of the City Watch. He accompanied the guard that escorted Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen from King's Landing to find safe haven. When the escort was attacked near Duskendale by broken men, he was slain by an arrow.
