General Information

Their motto is, “Awake! Awake!” The only member of the house to appear is Ser Harys Swyft, who may be the heir to Lord Swyft. His daughter, Lady Dorna, is wife to Ser Kevan Lannister, and so he is high in the Lannister councils.


Ser Harys is something of a craven and councilled that the Lannisters sue for peace with Robb Stark after the defeats at the Whispering Wood and Riverrun, but was overruled. He was not well-liked by the serving folk of Harrenhal.
