Lysa was the daughter of Lord Farman of Faircastle. During the Dance of the Dragons, Lord Dalton Greyjoy captured Fair Isle claimed Lysa and three of her sisters as salt wives and gave another to his brother Veron.
By 133 AC two of her sisters and her father had perished. One of Lord Dalton's other salt wives, Tess, slit his throat, making Lysa a salt widow. The smallfolk of Fair Isle and the few knights that remained on the island rose in rebellion and killed the remaining ironmen. Though the garrison at Faircastle was maintained by Alester Wynch and Gunthor Goodbrother, the latter slew the former in a quarrel over Lysa.
