Lord Orys Baratheon of Storm's End was the founder of House Baratheon. He slew the last Storm King, Argilac the Arrogant, married his daughter and took his lands.

History

Orys was the rumored bastard half-brother of Aegon I. He was one of Aegon's fiercest commanders and was regarded as Aegon's only true friend. He rose through the ranks and became Hand of the King after Aegon's landing on mainland Westeros and his coronation.[2]

During the War of Conquest he and Rhaenys atop of Meraxes was tasked with taking Storm's End. The Storm King Argilac, hearing of the fate of Harrenhal knew his formidable walls would not protect him from dragonfire, rode out to give open battle. Orys slew Argilac the Arrogant, who became the last Storm King.

After the battle, Argella Durrendon, the daughter of Argilac, declared herself the Storm Queen and continued to hold Storm's End until her household turned against her to avoid the same fate of Harrenhal and delivered her to Orys, naked and chained. Orys, however, covered her with his cloak and treated her chivalrously.

Aegon rewarded Orys with Storm's End. Orys took Argella as his wife and adopted the banner, honors and words of the Durrendons, Ours is the Fury. [3].[4]
