Toron Greyjoy was Lord of the Iron Islands, Lord Reaper of Pyke, and head of House Greyjoy during the reign of King Aegon III Targaryen.[1]

History

Toron was born a salt son of Lord Dalton Greyjoy, the Red Kraken. In 133 AC, his father was killed by one of his salt wives, Tess, at Faircastle. As he had not taken a rock wife, by law, the Seastone Chair passed to Lord Toron. A struggle for power was inevitable, however, as Toron was not yet six and his salt wife mother could not hope to act as a regent as a rock wife could.[1]

Lord Toron was seized by his aunts and their husbands and his mother was put to death, whilst his father's cousins raised up his half-brother Rodrik, and another pretender rose up in the form of Sam Salt, supposedly descended from the black line. The bloody struggle raged for half a year when Lady Johanna Lannister and Ser Leo Costayne's forces invaded the Iron Islands in 134 AC in retribution for the Red Kraken's invasion of the westerlands.

Lord Toron's defenders beat off the Lannister assault on Pyke, and thus he remained upon the Seastone Chair, but his brother Rodrik was taken and brought back to Casterly Rock, where he was gelded and made a fool.[2]
