Katheryn Winnick as Malena Hightower (Lannister)

Organization: House Hightower
Occupation: Noblewoman
Rank: Noble Lady
Age: Dec 12 92 (28)


Though Malena is thin, she is a woman that is anything but weak, her body one of whipcord strength rather than too much softness. She's only just above average height, with a confidence that lends to her presence. She has rich golden hair, more often than not braided back to keep it from her oval shaped face, with blue-gray eyes set beneath arched brows. Her mouth seems designed for frowns, lips holding a natural pout when relaxed, pale pink in shade and set just beneath a patrician nose.


Malena Lannister is one of many children, and the youngest child born to Tylus and Gemma Lannister, a surprise to both of her parents, leaving her a good eight years younger than her next sibling, and many, many years younger than her eldest. This left Malena a bit apart from the others, always the tag-along, the annoying child who tried to play with the older kids and never quite kept up. She was largely left to the care of her elderly Septa, who – between naps – taught Malena how to behave as a proper Lady. It also meant that she was left with ample time to sneak out and explore other, less ladylike pursuits, which more often than not brought her to the practice yard and eventually, under the instruction of the master-at-arms, who had developed a soft spot for the girl.

Being so much younger, Malena had only just begun to reach the age at which marriage was a serious consideration when her father abruptly passed away, and that responsibility was foisted upon her brother. With the weight of having to rule, and see to his own family, the matter was delayed until Malena was nineteen, and not actually wed until twenty. She and Samael Hightower had never met, and only managed to exchange a scant handful of letters before they met, which was on the day of their wedding. The marriage itself has been, to the public at least, an amiable one, the couple seeming to work well with one anther and producing two children. It was some six months ago that Samael suggested they all go to the Free Cities so that he could research… well, something. A something that Malena never quite understood, and didn't take the time to, she kept herself busy with the children, and her own pursuits, and left her husband to his research. It was a combination of homesickness, and that her youngest had begun to speak more often in a foreign language than that of their homeland, that the couple decided it was time to return to Westeros, and Oldtown.
