House Payne

Checkered purple and white, within each square a golden coin

General Information

Two members of the house have appeared so far: Podrick Payne, a boy squire, and his distant cousin Ser Ilyn Payne, the King’s Justice, who had his tongue torn out at the command of King Aerys while captain of Tywin Lannister’s guard because he had boasted that it was the Hand who truly ruled the realm.
