Ser Donnel Waynwood is a knight from House Waynwood and the second son of Lady Anya Waynwood, Lady of Ironoaks.[2]

His squire is Sandor Frey, a kinsman of some relation.[2]

Appearance and Character

A stocky youth in his early twenties, Ser Donnel has a wide nose and a shock of thick brown hair. Lady Catelyn Stark describes him as earnest and homely.[1]

Like most Waynwoods, Ser Donnel was always one for ceremony and tradition. He speaks with the solemn courtesy of a youth.[1]

Recent Events

A Game of Thrones

After the death of Lord Jon Arryn, the mountain clans of the Vale grew bolder. Ser Donnel desires to lead a hundred men to root out the mountain clans, but Lady Lysa Arryn forbids it, wanting to keep the swords of the Vale close to home.[1]

Ser Donnel leads the sortie from the Bloody Gate that saves Lady Catelyn Stark's party from the mountain clans in the Mountains of the Moon. After escorting her party to the Bloody Gate, Ser Donnel allows the wounded to recuperate within the battlements. He also sent ravens to the Eyrie and Gates of the Moon, informing Lady Arryn of her sister's arrival.[1]

A Clash of Kings

Donnel has replaced Ser Brynden Tully as the new Knight of the Gate at the Bloody Gate after Tully's resignation.[2][5]
