House Codd is a noble house from the Iron Islands. Their motto is "Though All Men Do Despise Us."[1][2] Their sigil depicts a silver codfish. [3]

The Codds are not a well-regarded house among the Ironborn[4]. Descended from thralls and salt wives[5], their men are thought to be thieves and cowards, and their women "wantons" (sluts) who practice incest with their own fathers and brothers.[3]
