10th Level (Noble 6 / Commander 2 / Knight 2) - Deceased
Jon Arryn was once one of the most powerful men in the Seven Kingdoms: Head of House Arryn, Lord of the Eyrie, Defender of the Vale, Warden of the East, and Hand of the King. He was foster-father to both Eddard Stark and Robert Baratheon, and went to war against Aerys Targaryen II, the Mad King, rather than surrender his wards. Once Robert took the throne, Jon carried much of the weight of the kingdom for a decade and a half, despite Robert’s inattention and carousing and the plotting of vipers.
Though married three times, Jon was childless until his third marriage. 15 years ago, he and Eddard wed Lysa and Catelyn Tully, respectively, father and adopted son becoming good brothers. Jon became the Hand to King Robert, and later, Lysa bore him a son whom he named Robert in honour of his former ward and liege lord. Jon Arryn was researching the king’s genealogy and bastard offspring, when he was struck suddenly of a mysterious malady and died. His sigil was the moon and falcon.
