Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

Ser Lancel Lannister is granted Castle Darry and its lands after the Battle of the Blackwater, as House Darry's child lord, Lyman Darry, died during the War of the Five Kings.[2]

A Feast for Crows

Lancel is betrothed to Amerei Frey, daughter of Mariya Darry, per the alliance between House Lannister and House Frey. Mariya's younger sister, Jeyne Darry, is dismayed that the lordship was granted to Lancel rather than one of her own young sons. Despite the house's banners combining the sigils of Lannister and Darry, an idea of Kevan Lannister, the house functions more as a branch of the Freys due to their numbers and Lancel's disinterest in his lordly duties.[1]

Harwyn Plumm leads some men to root out outlaws on the Darry lands, to little effect.[1] Later Lyle Crakehall, charmed by Amerei, leaves Riverrun to conclude the campaign.[3]

Lord Lancel renounces both lordship and his unconsummated marriage to join the Warrior's Sons.[1]
