Appearance and Character
Laenor had an aquiline nose, silver-white hair, and purple eyes. Ser Criston Cole alluded that boys were not safe around him. It was widely accepted that at the age of nineteen, Laenor had not shown any interest in women, instead preferring the company of men his own age.
Laenor was knighted a fortnight before his wedding with Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in 114 AC. His groom and likely lover, Ser Joffrey Lonmouth, was mortally wounded by Ser Criston Cole during the wedding's tourney. Laenor refused to leave Joffrey's side during his passing. Laenor returned to High Tide while Rhaenyra remained at court in King's Landing. Laenor eventually found a new favorite, the household knight Ser Qarl Correy.
Ser Laenor and Princess Rhaenyra had three sons, Princes Jacaerys, Lucerys, and Joffrey Velaryon, the last named after Joffrey Lonmouth. It was noted none of the children resembled either Laenor or their mother in appearance, causing many to suspect that the children's real father was Ser Harwin Strong.
Laenor was slain by his friend Qarl over a quarrel in Spicetown in 120 AC. King Viserys I Targaryen brought his court and dragons to Driftmark for the funeral. None of Laenor's sons survived the later civil war, the Dance of the Dragons.
