Robert has greying brown hair with a matching greying brown beard, hazel eyes, and a scar across his left eye which is glazed over. Robert often wears an eye patch to cover the scar and eye, though usually only while holding court or in noble company.
Robert was always a fighter as a child, and he would get into fights with the other children of the court. From an early age his father began to channel this energy into his training of arms. He was fostered at the Bloody Gate under the guidance of his Uncle Ser Randyll Redfort. Before leaving Redfort, Robert found out he was betrothed to the daughter of a Pentoshi noble his Lord Father was friends with. At age 13 he began to squire for his uncle and later became a knight at age 19. Upon earning his spurs Robert returned to Redfort and served in his father's retinue.
Before marrying his betrothed he became father to a bastard with Larra Royce, which he named Robert Stone. Upon hearing of this his Lord Father arranged for the marriage of Robert and Ellaria immediately. After fathering three legitimate children, including a son, with his wife Ellaria Ferys; Robert's father joined the Night's Watch and Robert became the Lord of Redfort.
In 359 AC, while fighting a skirmish with raiders from the Mountain Clans, Robert was unhorsed and attacked by a clansmen of the Milk Snakes. Robert managed to kill the clansmen, but not before the savage sliced his eye causing immediate blindness on his left side. Though the wound healed Robert never regained sight in his left eye and has since glazed over. Though unafraid of other's opinions, to please his lady wife Robert now wears an eye patch to cover his glassed over eye and scar while holding court. In the years since losing sight in his eye Robert has transitioned from being the warrior to becoming an even more feared tactician and leader of his men. He does not shy away from battle, though he does not join the fight anymore. He chooses to command from the rear, crushing his enemies with his tact rather then his sword.
