10th Level (Noble 4 / Commander 2 / Knight 4)
Brynden Tully is the Knight of the Gate of the Eyrie, and uncle to Edmure Tully, Catelyn Stark, and Lysa Arryn. Brynden is the younger brother (by five years) of Hoster Tully. He and Hoster had a tempestuous relationship, and when Lysa wed Jon Arryn, Brynden left his home and took up service with the Arryns in the Eyrie.
Despite this apparent desertion of the family estate, Brynden is still beloved by his nieces and nephew. It was to Brynden, not Hoster, that the children ran when they wanted comfort and support. Grey-eyed, with bushy eyebrows and a craggy-face, Brynden’s eyes crinkle with frequent smiles and laughter. His voice is hoarse, smoky, and vibrant. He is blunt in speech and sensible in judgement, and has never taken a wife despite his brother’s insistence. When Hoster called him the black goat of the house, Brynden instead turned the family’s leaping trout into a black fish as his personal sigil. He wears a device of a leaping black fish, wrought in gold and obsidian. After Catelyn’s visit to the Eyrie, Brynden returns to Riverrun with her, home again for the first time in many years.
