Description

This man stands at a decently generous height; somewhat above average, but not overly so. He has an average build and bearing, with strong features. His facial structure is rounded, but with a well-defined jawline. Thin lips rest beneath a prominent — without being overly so — nose. There is a nearly constant furrow to his brow, sometimes casting ice-blue eyes into shadow. His hair is a dark ginger that seems to cascade wildly down his face and match his well maintained goatee. A few scars linger on his skin, and his hands are rough, obvious from heavy use of a weapons.

Background

Ormund was the second child of Otto and Annette, their story is not one of love but of political placement. To say that Ormund grew up in a home lacking love would be an understatement. Though were his father and mother lacked in love, he grew closer to his siblings. As the Eldest Son, high expectations were what was required of him, he was due to be Lord of one of the most powerful cities and provinces in Westeros and he grew into those shoes well. Though his abilities did not go to his head, he grew to be a humble man with a reputation as an honorable man with and adventurous spirit.

As an adolescent, he seemed to excel at two things, Cartography and Weapons. While an excellent swordsman, he soon found his hands fit a war hammer better and soon excelled and became known for his unique use of wielding two war hammers, one in each hand in combat. As he grew so did his skills, in weaponry and his ability to handle himself as a Lord. When he was twenty, a marriage was arranged with House Lannister, his wife, Juleen, was beautiful, and she was intelligent and cunning but their relationship was one of respect and duty. Within a year of their wedding their first child was ready to join them. The birth was breach and she chose their sons life over her own. There might not have been love between them, but Juleen taught him what love was through her sacrifice and in the son she bore. Lyonel was named by Juleen before she died, so that her son may never forget he is from Lions. The boy became the reason Ormund did everything. A battle needed to be fought, he would win it quickly so he could return to his son. He would make a greater world for his son to live in.

When his father became Hand of the King and his older sister Alicent became Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. The time came for Ormund became the Lord of Hightower, a position he stepped into gracefully. He is known to be honorable and fair, though when the time comes he is swift and carries out justice himself, not one to allow others to dirty their hands for the sake of keeping his clean. A Stark once visited his father's court and this philosophy of hands on justice appealed more to Ormund than his father's usual dismissive wave that ended a mans life. Despite the time it takes to ensure Oldtown is operating correctly, he always finds time to put his son away for slumbers and catches up with him before, the day is done. It is well known that he is not a womanizer nor does he frequent locations he finds beneath his status, such as brothels.
