Occupation: Knight
Rank: Noble Lord
Age: Oct 5 94 (26)


Standing at a few inches above six feet, this man in his mid-to-late twenties is quite athletic, looking like he spends some time keeping in shape. Dark brown, almost black hair is a few inches long, and kept carefully away from his forehead. Blue eyes keep on watching the world a little carefully, a nose that are slightly larger than average as well as pale lips that frame two rows of teeth that is taken care of rather well. There's usually the stubble or a faint beard too.


The third and last son of Petyr Hightower, and his wife Olenna(Tyrell), Brynden was always seen as a bit special for being born so far after his older brothers. Hobert was 14 when Brynden was born, while the middle brother, Gerold, was 12. Brynden was always feeling like he was the extra, since none of his siblings was close to him in age. It was also clear relatively early that his temper was a changing one, and could go from very happy to strong rage in just a few moments.

As a youngest son of a minor branch of the Hightower House, the path was set for young Brynden from an early age, and at the age of nine, he was sent off to first serve as a page, then a squire with Ser Hermun Vyrwel, the youngest brother of the Lord of Darkdell. While he might have been missing home in the start, he did his best to do what he could as a page. Even if one of the more shocking moments in his life happened a few months after he turned ten.

That was when he was informed his family had betrothed him to Lady Anika Redwyne, who had just been born. He wasn?t very happy to hear that, but then again, what ten years old folks are? And he realized there was nothing he could do about it, so he just put himself into learning as much as he could.

When he was twelve, he became a squire, and did all he could to help Ser Hermun, and learn what he could. The knight was a bit peculiar when it came to certain things, including whatever rituals he had in preparing himself, and some of those things, like the order in which he put on his armor, rubbed off on young Brynden. He worked hard, and earned his spurs half a year or so after he had turned 18, in a skirmish with bandits near Darkdell.

Returning home, now a knight, Brynden did what he can to help his House, never hesitating in doing what he was called to do. While still smiling and in happy moods every now and then, the young man had become more serious and thoughtful. He was also always happy to take part if they needed to intimidate people, as well as training soldiers and similar things. Basically, he?s just trying to do his duty, while deep inside his mind, he knows that day when he has to marry the lady he?s betrothed to will come.

Wife - We have been betrothed since she was born, and just recently, married. I know it's not her fault, and that I should not resent her for me not having been able to have those dreams back in my youth about what woman I would marry at some point. We will just have to do the best we can, out of this. She's quite beautiful, which helps, I believe.
