The Hand of the King


Born: 262

He went by Ned to all who knew him.

Brother of Brandon, Lyanna, and Benjen Stark. Husband of Catelyn Tully. Father of Robb, Sansa, Arya, Brandon, and Rickon.

He had a long face, dark hair and grey eyes. His closely-trimmed beard was beginning to grey, making him look older than his years.

He carried the blade Ice, the Valyrian Steel blade gifted to House Stark by the Targaryens.


He became the Hand of the King in early 298. He was executed for conspiring to give the throne to Stannis Baratheon.

Before he died he sent out hundreds of messages claiming thatJoffrey Baratheon was not a true born son of Robert I, but the bastard of Jaime Lannister.
