Ser Garlan Tyrell

Two golden roses on green

General Information

Ser Garlan Tyrell is the second son of Lord Mace Tyrell, and is called the Gallant after his elder brother Willas decided to give him the name before someone else thought of something to mock him with as he was plump when a youth.. On occasion he bears two golden roses on his shield, to denote his status as second son. He is married to Lady Leonette of House Fossoway, although the branch is not clear.

He is an exceptionally skilled swordsman, but his lack of interest in gaining glory makes him less famous than his younger brother, Ser Loras.
