Secondary Character: Renly Baratheon
Titles: Lord of Storm’s End
Renly Baratheon is the late King Robert Baratheon’s youngest brother. Tall, well-built, and handsome, Renly has always been said to look like a younger version of Robert. Renly tends to cut a striking figure wherever he goes, not only because of his similarity to his late brother, but because he is often dressed up in only the most fashionable and finest of clothing and armor. After Robert's death, Renly decides to crown himself as King, despite his elder brother Stannis having the better claim to the Iron Throne. Renly's claim lies in the size of his army - with his marriage to Margaery Tyrell, he has the entire power of Highgarden behind him, a massive force compared to those of the other self-styled kings. And that is no coincidence - Renly is extremely charismatic: he makes friends easily and his men are incredibly loyal to him, even bordering on zealotry. However, his easy nature and tendency to make jokes even in the most dire of circumstances can sometimes come across as being flippant and irreverent to those with a more serious disposition.
