Garin the Great was a noble of the Rhoynar and the Prince of Chroyane.

History

During the Second Spice War, Prince Garin gathered a great army of the Rhoynar to Chroyane to oppose the Valyrian Freehold. According to Beldecar, Garin had a quarter of a million men in his command. He began to be called the Great after victories at Selhorys, Valysar, and Volon Therys.[1]

After Garin the Great threatened Volantis, however, his Rhoynish host was defeated by the dragonlords of Valyria.[1] According to legend, the men of Volantis and Valyria hung Garin in a golden cage and carried him north to his city of Chroyane. The victors mocked Garin as he called upon Mother Rhoyne to destroy them. That very night, the waters rose and drowned many invaders, and survivors began to die of greyscale.[2][1]

From that day, the spirits of the fallen conquerors are said to have remained beneath the waters of the Sorrows. It is believed that their cold breath is still said to rise from the murk to make the fogs that infest the ruined city of Chroyane, and their flesh is said to have turned as stony as their hearts. It is believed by some that Garin rose from his watery grave and became the Shrouded Lord.[2] Some say Garin's Curse brought the Doom of Valyria.[3]
