Roryn Tawney is the Lord of House Tawney and Nettlebank.


With hard, angular features weathered and worn by years at sea, Roryn Tawney is not what one would consider a handsome man. His face is unshaven, his hair uncut, though kept restrained by a single thick plait as both Tawney men and women are partial to braids. He stands some 6'0" tall, with broad shoulders and a barrel chest.


Lord Roryn bore no sons over the years, to either rock or salt wives, but seemed none the worse for lack of male issue. His daughters were born and raised at Nettlebank--perhaps due in some small part to the lack of a mother’s presence in their life--much in way that any surrogate son might have been. The sisters Tawney took to the seas at an early age and were encouraged to become warriors in their own right, defying the standard for Ironborn gender roles.

Known AffiliationsEdit

Captain of Wavebreaker.

House Tawney has sworn fealty to Torric Greyjoy.
