7th Level (Man-at-arms 6 / Commander 1)

Janos Slynt is the former commander of the gold cloaks, the City Watch of King’s Landing. An ugly man, stout with jowls and a bald pate, Janos has little in the way of charisma. He is a corrupt man, having taken bribes and skimmed gold from funds allocated to the City Watch. Yet he knew how to take care of his men as well, and many followed him through a sense of purchased loyalty. To the lords above, he was an accomplished lickspittle, always willing to be useful.

In recognition for his betrayal of Lord Stark, Janos was made a Lord by the Lannisters and given domain over the contested keep of Harrenhal. This move by the newly-crowned King Joffrey Baratheon is an unpopular one, as the existing nobles find it insulting to see such a commoner raised to their level. Later, he was sent to the wall by Tyrion Lannister in his capacity as Hand of the King. Janos Slynt has three sons and a daughter, and took a bloody gold spear on a black field as his sigil.
