|Died||In 61 AC, at the Red Mountains of Dorne|
|Book(s)||Fire & Blood (mentioned)|
The second Vulture King was believed to be the minor son of a minor house in Dorne, while the first Vulture King commanded an army of thousands, the second, only had a force of a few hundred brigands and outlaws who shared his taste for robbery and rape. His band was later joined by Ser Borys Baratheon, an embittered younger brother of Lord Rogar Baratheon of Storm's End. With Ser Borys knowledge of the stormlands, the Vulture King raided with more success, always retreating back to the Red Mountains before a force could be mustered to attack him. He knew the mountain terrain well and always disappeared when pursued or launched cunning ambushes upon would be pursuers.
The outlaw was captured at the end of the Third Dornish War, Lord Rogar Baratheon ordered his chains removed and he was given a spear and shield. Lord Rogar commanded that if the Vulture King managed to slay him, he was to be set free. The Vulture proved unable for the task and was cut down by Rogar with ease.
