Lord Colin Forrester is the Lord of Ironrath and bannerman to Lord Alyn Glover.
Born in 340 to Lord Evan Forrester and Lady Sybelle Branch, Colin was the eldest son and heir. His two siblings were born a few years later, and all three Forresters were trained in martial skills and survival tactics of living amongst the woods. Colin grew fast, big, and tall, becoming an expert with his warhammer, gifted to him on his fifteenth name day by his father. Later that year, his house’s seat, Ironrath, was set upon by rival house, the Whitehills. His lord father, Evan, was killed in the attack, but Colin was able to return the heartbreak by killing Lord Whitehill’s heir with his bare hands, crushing his skull against a rock. His mother, Lady Sybelle, travelled to the Whitehills to negotiate peace, but was captured and executed, her head being sent back to Ironrath.
Sick with sadness and rage, Colin found solace in hunting and learning the ways of the ironwood forest around him. At 18, he wed the daughter of a chieftain of the Mountain Clans, House Flint. Morra quickly birthed three children, ensuring the temporary survival of House Forrester. Sworn to House Glover, Colin has distanced himself from serving his liege, opting instead to keep his house close by, for fear of losing any more members. He did not travel south to the Grand Council, and as such, avoided the attack on the Northern host by the Ironborn.
