{Lions♣The Lannisters}#5: The Lannisters send their regards.

Welcome to the 5th House Lannister Appreciation Thread

+

On the far western coast of the continent, high atop a rocky promontory overlooking the Sunset Sea, sits Casterly Rock - ancestral seat of House Lannister. Below it lies Lannisport - one of the great cities of Westeros - a center for trade, culture, and the great Lannister fleet.

There are a number of gold and silver mines in the Westerlands, making it the richest region in all of Westeros. One of the most productive mines lies beneath Casterly Rock itself, making House Lannister the wealthiest of all the noble houses. This allows House Lannister to finance many endeavors of other noble houses. Even the king himself has sought credit from Casterly Rock from time to time.

We Lannisters claim our descent from the Andal invaders and, through the female bloodline, Lann the Clever. According to the legend, Lann, using only his wits, won Casterly Rock from the noble house of Casterly during the Age of Heroes.

The Lannisters reigned as Kings of the Rock for thousands of years, and worked to make it the envy of the rest of the Seven Kingdoms. Our time as kings ended, however, when Aegon Targaryen - otherwise known as Aegon the Conqueror - arrived in Westeros with his army. The last King of the Rock, King Loren Lannister, joined forces with King Mern Gardener, the King of the Reach. Together, with 60,000 men, they met the Targaryen host in open battle.

History tells us that Aegon unleashed all three of his dragons, slaughtering 4,000 men, at what came to be known as the Field of Fire. King Mern himself was burned alive that day, and House Gardener turned to ash with him. Seeing both the threat and opportunity the Targaryens represented, Loren wisely surrendered, and aided Aegon in his further conquest of Westeros. The Lannisters were thus appointed Lords Paramount of the Westerlands and Wardens of the West - titles we hold to this day.

Let us be clear, though - it is neither luck, nor royal favor, that makes our house prosperous. There have been times in our history where some have thought us weak, lazy or opulent. My father, Tytos Lannister, nearly bankrupted our house with his poor investments, and allowed himself to be mocked openly at court.

When our vassal, the Reynes of Castamere, dared to rise up against the Lannisters, they learned how dangerous it can be to taunt a lion. I, Tywin Lannister, led the assault on Castamere to put down this rebellion. I made an example of them, to anyone who doubts our might. They even made a quaint song about the fates of the Reynes of Castamere. Sadly, there are no Reynes left to hear it.

Today, the Golden Lion of Lannister is rightly admired and feared throughout the Seven Kingdoms. Our words are… “Hear me roar.” But there are other words that should be remembered when crossing a Lion of Casterly Rock - “A Lannister always pays his debts.”

Tywin Lannister
Patriarch of the House of Lannister. He is is Lord of Casterly Rock, Shield of Lannisport and Warden of the West.
He's a calculating, cold, cruel, ruthless man who would do anything to keep his family's position of power in Westeros.


Cersei Lannister
The oldest child of Tywin and Joanna Lannister. Married to Robert Bartheon and Queen of the Seven Kingdoms.
After the death of her husband she became Queen Regent for her oldest son Joffrey. Her three children are Joffrey,
Myrcella and Tommen who are the product of her incestuous relationship with her brother Jaime, not her marriage
to King Robert.

Jaime Lannister
The second child of Tywin and Joanna Lannister, only moments younger than his twin sister whom he has shared
an incestuous relationship with since they were children. He has served on the Kingsguard for both Aerys Targaryen
(the Mad King) and Robert Baratheon. At fifteen he was the youngest man ever to join the order and is known
as the Kingslayer for having killed the Mad King at the end of Robert's Rebellion

Tyrion Lannister
Youngest child of Tywin and Joanna Lannister. His mother died to during his childbirth causing his father to
despise him which was assisted by the fact that he is a misshaped dwarf often referred to people as the Imp or the Halfman.
He is known for his whoring ways which often puts him at odds with his father who sees this as dishonoring the family
name.
