|Alias||The Old Ox|
|Book(s)||The Mystery Knight (appears)|
Early in the reign of Aerys I Targaryen, Buford is past sixty, and he has become fat and soft. He is blind in his right eye. During the Whitewalls tourney, he wore blood red armor and a helm decorated with black bull's horns on either side.
Buford is said to have slain forty men in the Battle of the Redgrass Field. However, according to Ser Maynard Plumm, the number of Buford had slain on the Redgrass Field grew higher every single passing year.
- In The Mystery Knight, "the Old Ox" is first referred to as "Ser Buford Bulwer" in conversation, but later called "Ser Theomore Bulwer" during the joust.
