History

During Lady Johanna Lannister's war against the ironborn, she hoped to retake Fair Isle from the Red Kraken, Lord Dalton Greyjoy. Lord Prester, Lord Tarbeck, and Ser Erwin Lannister were given command of ragtag fleet of fishing boats and cogs at Feastfires, but they were betrayed. The ill-fated crossing led to their deaths and Lord Prester's head was sent back to Casterly Rock.[5]

According to a semi-canon source, Lord Tytos Lannister compelled his brother, Ser Jason, to wed Marla Prester to avoid further scandals and bastards. After the wedding, Ser Jason departed Casterly Rock to live with his wife at Feastfires. After Ser Tywin Lannister arrested Lord Walderan Tarbeck, Lady Ellyn Tarbeck captured two sons of Lord Prester, two Lannisters of Lannisport, and Stafford Lannister, the eldest son of Lady Marla Prester and the late Ser Jason, along with half a dozen common girls who met them in the woods by Feastfire for purposes of dalliance. The hostages were later exchanged at Castamere.[6]

Lord Prester was one of the first lords to join Ser Tywin against the Reynes and Tarbecks when they rebelled against House Lannister.[6]
