Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

Gynir Rednose is among the ironborn that raid the Stony Shore. He is part of Theon Greyjoy's force that captures Winterfell. When Bran and Rickon Stark disappear, he is part of Theon's search party.[1] He, Gelmarr and Aggar go with Theon and "Reek" and are present for the false execution of Bran and Rickon at the mill on the Acorn Water. After the deaths of Aggar and Gelmarr, Gynir takes to sleeping in his armor and adopts the noisiest dog he can find to guard his sleep, but he is found drowned in the well. Although he has no evidence, Theon condemns Farlen for the deaths and personally executes the kennelmaster. Theon later recollects that Reek was responsible for the murders.[2]

A Dance with Dragons

As more men turn up mysteriously dead in Winterfell Theon Greyjoy thinks to himself that it all seems so familiar, like a mummer show that he had seen before. Except this time the mummers have changed, Roose Bolton is playing the part that Theon once played and the dead mean are playing the parts of Aggar, Gynir Rednose, and Gelmarr the Grim.[3]
