Balon Greyjoy

Played by Patrick Malahide

Father of Yara

Asha and Theon, Lord Balon is an aged man with long, gray hair, a very gaunt appearance, and hard black eyes. Having once rebelled against Robert and crowned himself, Lord Balon has since brooded at his seat of Pyke over the last nine years.

The actor cast in the roll seems an excellent choice, although we doubt he’ll have Lord Balon’s long locks.


Season Two

Lord Balon is not very pleased to see Theon on his return, and is suspicious of the effect that living in the greenlands has had on him. Theon proves his devotion, however, and Balon grudgingly allows him to be part of his plans to attack the North. However, Theon protests the task given to him. Without his father’s approval, he instead seizes Winterfell.
