House Lannister guards
A Game of Thrones
A squad of Lannister guards led by Tregar accompany Ser Jaime Lannister when he confronts Lord Eddard Stark in the streets of King's Landing. Tregar and four other red cloaks die from the ensuing battle, while three House Stark guards are killed and Ned is wounded.
Queen Cersei Lannister is guarded by twenty Lannister guards when Eddard presents the late King Robert I Baratheon's will, but Ned expects the support of the City Watch of King's Landing. Janos Slynt has a hundred gold cloaks support Cersei instead of Ned, however, and the remaining Stark guards are killed during Petyr Baelish's coup. Ser Meryn Trant of the Kingsguard brings five red cloaks when he tries to arrest Arya. Syrio Forel defeats the five and allows Arya to escape from Meryn.
A Clash of Kings
Captain Vylarr commands the hundred-strong household guard of Cersei Lannister in the capital. Following the queen's orders, Vylarr's men take begging brothers to the dungeons. Bronn becomes the captain of the personal guards of Tyrion Lannister, acting Hand of the King, and is given a crimson cloak. The former sellsword is also named an officer of the gold cloaks.
Depriving his sister of her guards, Tyrion sends Vylarr with the hundred as Ser Cleos Frey's escort when he returns to Riverrun. Four of the guards are false envoys sent by Tyrion to free Ser Jaime Lannister from Riverrun's dungeon, however. The four are hanged after their failed attempt, along with some red cloaks who came to their aid against Tully guards. The rest of these red cloaks are imprisoned in Riverrun.
