== Biography == (in progress)

Jaime Lannister is the second child of Lord Tywin Lannister of Casterly Rock and his wife Lady Joanna Lannister.

He and his twin sister Cersei were unseperable in their early childhood, going as far as to experiment together in a sexual manner at a young age. During one of these encounters, they were caught by Lady Joanna, their mother. Cersei was immediately exiled to the other side of the castle, and both twins were told never to do anything like that ever again.

At age nine, he lost his mother, who died birthing his younger brother Tyrion. Even though Tyrion is a malformed dwarf, Jaime seems to show genuine love towards Tyrion as a brother.

Jaime was sent to Crakehall to become a squire for Lord Sumner Crakehall.

At the age of thirteen he won his spurs of knighthood against the Kingswood Brotherhood.

He was raised to the Kingsguard at fifteen at a ceremony at Harrenhal, replacing Harlan Grandison. This was a suggestion first floated by Cersei so that they could continue their illicit relationship, since at that time, she was at Kings Landing whilst their father Lord Tywin was Hand of the King.

However, this ploy failed, as Lord Tywin resigned the Handship soon after, seeing Jaime's appointment as a slight by King Aerys intended to deprive him of his heir, Jaime. Thus, Cersei and Jaime just swapped places.

During his time in the Kingsguard, Jaime was troubled morally by the decisions of King Aerys who was insane. Two notable examples, of Jaime's moral problems with King Aerys behaviour was when King Aerys was raping and ravaging Queen Rhaella, and secondly, when King Aerys had Brandon Stark and Lord Rickard Stark 'executed'.

As King Aerys became increasingly insane, he began to see traitors everywhere, he refused to let Jaime leave Kings Landing and join the royal army, instead keeping him in Kings Landing to be used as a hostage against Lord Tywin who was still sitting on the sidelines in Robert's Rebellion.

At the end of Robert's Rebellion, he killed King Aerys II Targaryen, The Mad King, in the Sack of Kings Landing at age seventeen. Pardoned by King Robert I Baratheon and continued to serve as Kingsguard to King Robert.

He continued his illicit relationship with his sister, even though she was now married and Queen, committing numerous acts of treason against King Robert. He fathered three children with Cersei: Joffrey, Myrcella and Tommen.
