Ser Bronn Blackwater is a knight of Stokeworth and twin brother to current Lord of Stokeworth Tyrion Blackwater. He is currently the heir to Stokeworth.
During the reign of King Valarr, Bronn served as Master of Coin on the Small Council.
Following the abdication of the king, Bronn took ownership of the Crown's treasury thus making him one of the most powerful men in the Crownlands. He eventually joined his forces with Lyonel Baratheon to seize control of the capital and secure his position as King of Westeros.
He is currently wartime Hand of the King and Lord Protector of the Blackwater.
Appearance and Character Edit
Bronn spends most of his time with his brother, Tyrion. Standing at six feet tall, they share black hair and green eyes. Though, while they look identical, their physiques tell a different story. Bronn is slender and agile. He is more reserved compared to his brother and thus dislikes showcasing his abilities in tournaments.
Regardless, the twins are well-known for their abilities and are very popular with the commoners due to their humble roots and humorous personalities.
Bronn’s weapon of choice is a spear where he makes use of range to minimise risk of personal harm. Likewise, he is also skilled in archery and rarely seen without one of the two weapons upon his person. Although less public than Tyrion, Bronn is also both feared and revered throughout the Crownlands.
Ser Bronn and Ser Tyrion Blackwater were born as twins in 336 AC to Cedric Blackwater and a commoner named Rose.
They enjoyed a highborn upbringing, primarily due to the inherited wealth of House Stokeworth. They were both trained for combat ability, though they took to different weapons in order to compliment each other's fighting style.
The Blackwater reign was peaceful until a peasant revolt started in 356 AC. While no one was fully sure of the reasons behind the revolt, the twins cemented themselves in local folklore when they ended the revolt by challenging the leaders to a drinking contest.
For their loyal services to the Crown and popularity with the smallfolk, they were summoned to Queen's Landing later that year and both granted knighthood.
In 357 AC, Bronn visited the Night's Watch for a week, meeting the Lord Commander and helping train the recruits in swordsmanship and military command. He was banned from ever returning, however, after he was caught urinating off the edge of the wall.
After Cedric Blackwater's death in 359 AC, his brother Tyrion inherited the Lordship of Stokeworth. Bronn has served as Castellan ever since.
