Secondary Character: Theon Greyjoy
Theon Greyjoy is the heir to Pyke, the ancestral home of Great House Greyjoy. House Greyjoy staged a rebellion against King Robert Baratheon’s rule a few years after Robert was crowned King; though they had some victories, the Rebellion was eventually crushed by King Robert and Lord Eddard Stark.
The head of House Greyjoy, Balon Greyjoy, was allowed to remain the overlord of the Iron Islands; however, his only surviving son, Theon, was sent to Winterfell, as a hostage and ward to Eddard Stark. Theon has grown up with the Starks, and despite being a hostage to ensure his father’s good behavior, he has been treated very well by Lord Eddard and the Starks. He treats Robb Stark as a close friend, but does not get along well with Jon Snow.
Theon has a streak of arrogance in him, but for the most part, it does not surface too often. He is a skilled archer and takes great pride in his ability to make incredibly accurate shots.
