Bio:

Your Grandfather was a Valyrian mercenary that fought for Aegon the Conqueror. He and your father fought Harren the Black on the Riverlands and were instrumental in securing the Riverlands from the Ironborn. Your grandfather was wounded seriously after saving Aegons life, as he lay dying he asked Aegon to knight his son. Aegon agreed. Your father was knighted by your grandfathers corpse on a cliffside overlooking two rivers. Your father thought the two serpentine rivers looked like two dragons. He took that as his symbol of his knighthood. He remained Loyal to the Targaryens and was sergeant at arms for Lord Tully after the war. He never married but had you with a woman he barely knew. He raised you and taught you the ways of Knighthood. You grew up in the Shadow of Riverrun and made friends with Ser Bryson Tollett who you were knighted with. Your father succumbed to a sickness and died, his last wish was that you gain lands and titles and make your name strong. You and Tollett were close friends until he made you look bad in front of others to gain a favorite at court. You were falsely accused of harrassment by Lady Jacquelyn Tully and Tollet testified against you. You were thrown out of Riverrun. Since you have sworn revenge on Tollett. He has since been used by Jaqueline Tully and banished as well. You have travelled North to look for service for some lord. You missed the Bolton/Stark war but met Wyk Snow and his brother Tyr. Since you have been their constant companion and sworn sword. Wyk has promised you a place with him in his new lands. But it will be hard coming.
