Lymond Lychester is the Lord of Castle Lychester and the head of House Lychester.[1]

Appearance and Character

Lymond is an old done knight. He is a large man whose hair has turned grey with age.[1]

With the death of his sons in Robert's Rebellion, the old knight has become senile and inattentive. When spoken to, Lymond only smiles and mutters the story of his battle with Ser Maynard at the bridge.[1] Lymond's mind has become prone to wandering.[2][3]

History

Lord Lymond once held Ser Maynard at the bridge, taking six wounds before killing the other knight. There is no further information as to who Maynard was or where the bridge is located, though Lem and Anguy believe it to be the small bridge near Lychester's castle.[1]

All of Lord Lychester's sons died during Robert's Rebellion, fighting for one side or the other. The old knight has since become senile with age, and is now cared for by young Maester Roone.[1][2]

Recent Events
