Appearance and Character

Brandon is wrinkled and slight of build, but sly-eyed and spry. He resembles an old fox clad in fur and iron.[4] The bearded Brandon is half a head taller than Torghen Flint.[4]

The Norrey believes in the old gods[5] and distrusts free folk.[4]

Recent Events

A Dance with Dragons

House Norrey gives aid to King Stannis Baratheon when the king marches to the northern mountains and then defeats Asha Greyjoy in the fight by Deepwood Motte.[6] The Norrey is too old to go on campaign,[5] but his son, Brandon the Younger, joins Stannis's march on Winterfell.[3]

Brandon and twelve fighting men visit Castle Black for the wedding of Alys Karstark and Sigorn, the Magnar of Thenn. The Norrey also brings a wet nurse.[5] Brandon is skeptical of the idea of Jon Snow, Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, to settle free folk south of the Wall.[5]


Jon: We cannot pick and choose amongst the free folk, saying this one may pass, this one may not. Peace means peace for all.
Brandon: As well make peace with wolves and carrion crows.[4]
