Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

Vylarr is the captain of the Lannister household guard in King's Landing, which now numbers one hundred men.[2] He is confronted by Tyrion Lannister over where his loyalties lie. He commands the guard that accompanies Tyrion back to the Broken Anvil through the streets of King's Landing.[1] Queen Cersei Lannister orders Vylarr and his men to imprison begging brothers in the dungeon.[3]

When Tyrion informs Ser Cleos Frey of his terms for peace, he commands Vylarr to escort Cleos back to Riverrun, taking all of the Lannister guardsmen with him. The thirty guards[4] sent by Robb Stark to escort Cleos to the capital also return to Riverrun in Vylarr's company as well.[3]

Unbeknownst to Vylarr, Tyrion has included a thief, a poisoner, a mummer, and a murderer in the party in a plot to free Jaime Lannister from captivity at Riverrun.[3] After their arrival, the conspirators temporarily free Ser Jaime, but the Kingslayer is soon subdued. Some of the Lannister guardsmen rush to aid him but are also subdued. Ser Edmure Tully hangs the four conspirators and any red cloaks who attempted to aid them, while those who did not are instead imprisoned.[5]

A Storm of Swords

Vylarr is described as the captain-of-guards and a member of the household of Lord Tywin Lannister.[6]

A Feast for Crows

Vylarr serves as the captain of guards at Casterly Rock.[7] It is unknown if Vylarr was freed before or after the siege of Riverrun.


Vylarr: How many men should I take?
Tyrion: Why, all of them.
Pycelle: My lord Hand, that cannot ... your father, Lord Tywin himself, he sent these good men to our city to protect Queen Cersei and her children ...
Tyrion: The Kingsguard and the City Watch protect them well enough. The gods speed you on your way, Vylarr.[3]
