Brother to Balon and Lord Commander of the Iron Fleet. Victarion loves battle and the open sea. He is a very capable commander and a fierce warrior in battle, but has a calm demeanor outside of it, thinking of enemies with great respect and deploring Euron's tendency to humiliate captives. He is a religious man and wears full plate armor while sailing because he has no fear of drowning. Years ago Euron seduced (or raped) his wife, and Victarion was forced to kill her to maintain his honor. Only the taboo against kinslaying kept Victarion from killing Euron. He has not remarried since.

A claimant to the throne of the isles after Balon's death, Victarion appeared to be the leading contender for the throne, but was eventually passed over in favor of Euron. Despite his hatred for Euron, Victarion's obedient and dutiful nature kept him following Euron's orders. He perceived the political games Euron played with the other Ironborn, but was powerless to stop them. Though Euron has asked him to court Daenerys Targaryen in Euron's name, he secretly plans to marry her himself, as revenge for Euron's earlier betrayal.
