9th Level (Man-at-arms 5 / Knight 4)
His face was pockmarked and beardless, with deep set eyes and hollow cheeks. Though he was not an old man, only a few wisps of hair remained to him, sprouting above his ears, but those he had grown long as a woman’s. His armour was iron-grey chain mail over layers of boiled leather, plain and unadorned, and it spoke of age and hard use. Above his right shoulder, the stained leather hilt of the blade strapped to his back was visible; a two-handed greatsword, too long to be worn at his side.
Ser Ilyn is the King’s Justice and royal executioner to King Robert, and later, King Joffrey. Years ago, he served as captain of the guards to Lord Tywin Lannister. He is a grim, gaunt man, haunting and unpleasant in appearance, silent and appropriately deathlike in demeanour. He has pale colourless eyes, and his gaze is cold and disturbing. A mute, Ilyn’s tongue was torn from his mouth 14 years past by King Aerys Targaryen II.
Ser Ilyn has no love for man, woman, beast, or even life. The little pleasure he derives from his existence comes from his grim duty. When Lord Eddard Stark is arrested, his ancient Valyrian greatsword Ice is given to Ilyn. The first use that Payne puts it to is to sever Eddard Stark’s head.
