Ser Desmond Grell is the master-at-arms at Riverrun.[1] Ser Desmond has spent the better part of his life in service to House Tully. He has a large belly.[2]


Desmond was born of House Grell one of the minor houses of the riverlands. He serves as squire, Knight and eventually master-at-arms at Hoster Tully service. Catelyn Tully tells he was a squire when she was born and knight by the time she learned to ride and master-at arms at Riverrun before she was wed to Eddard Stark.[3] During Catelyn's bedding on her wedding night, he apologized for every bawdy joke he made about her.[4]

A Clash of Kings

Ser Desmond was in charge of training new bowmen to replace those lost in the Battle of Riverrun and the Battle of the Camps.[5] During the attempt to free Ser Jaime Lannister from his cell, Ser Desmond's squire Myles was slain by Ser Jaime.[2] When Edmure Tully rode out to meet the Lannister forces at the Battle of the Fords, he left Ser Desmond as commander of Riverrun in his absence.[6]

A Storm of Swords

Ser Desmond was named castellan of Riverrun upon Edmure Tully's departure and it was he who had to deal with Catelyn Tully's betrayal when she let Ser Jaime Lannister go. He imprisoned her in her father's rooms while awaiting the return of her brother and son.[3] He was supposed to be one of the nobles who launched Lord Hoster Tully's funeral boat, but was asked to step aside when Lothar Frey, the envoy from the Twins had arrived with the Lord Walder Frey's response to King Robb Stark's overtures.[7]

A Feast for Crows

After the surrender of Riverrun and the exile of House Tully, Ser Desmond asked to join the Night's Watch. He was joined by Ser Robin Ryger. Both were escorted to Maidenpool by Raff the Sweetling.[8]
