Game of Thrones

This man stands at a decently generous height; somewhat above average, but not overly so. He has an average build and bearing, with strong features. His facial structure is rounded, but with a well-defined jawline. Thin lips rest beneath a prominent — without being overly so — nose. There is a nearly constant furrow to his brow, sometimes casting ice-blue eyes into shadow. His hair is a dark ginger that seems to cascade wildly down his face and matches his well-maintained goatee. A few scars linger on his skin, and his hands are rough, obvious from heavy use of a weapon.

Background

sigil_house-hightower.png
"We Light the Way."

Son of Marak Hightower (62 - ) & Dorthy Appleton (73 - ). Eldest brother of Lynette (Hightower) Beesbury (b. 92) who's married to Alan Beesbury (b.92). Marak Hightower was the eldest brother of Otto Hightower (b.64) who resides in King's Landing as the Hand of the King. Otto is married to Arenna Florent (b. 65) and together they have four children, Ormund's cousins, Otho III Hightower (b.84), Septon Barris II (b. 86), Queen Alicent (Hightower) Targaryen (b. 84), and Gwayne Hightower (b. 90). Having a Hightower as the Queen has brought great prosperity to the Hightowers. It has also put the Hightowers in the thick of the civil unrest between the Greens and the Blacks. For Ormund blood is thick and the Andal Law of the Eldest Son inherits is important and that puts him firmly in his cousin's camp for the Greens.

In 108, Ormund married Juleen Lannister. Ormund respected Juleen more than he loved her. But she gave four children and in them, he learned what love is. A father shouldn't have favourites, alas Ormund finds himself often favouring his third born, his first son and the Heir of Hightower and Oldtown. He knew his daughters would leave to start families of their own, so while he loves them dearly, this is something he always prepared himself for. The youngest, his second son, Martyn, it was his birth that took Juleen from them, and though he tries to fight it, he is ashamed that he resents the boy some, that he looks like his mother more than a Hightower only adds salt to the wound. So it is a secret fact that Lyonel is his pride and joy. They have been quite inseparable since Juleen's death.

Arana (Hightower) Lydden

Eldest Child, Daughter: Arana was born in 109 A.C.. Almost a perfect 9 months after the wedding night. She was betrothed to Cyril Lydden and was married in 123 A.C. to him.

Son-In-Law: Cyril (b. 91) is the Heir of House Lydden in the Westerlands. He lost his wife in childbed, something Ormund sympathizes with. He was also a cousin of Juleen and a family friend. He was very patient in his waiting for Arana to be of age. He lost his wife before Ormund lost Juleen, it was Juleen that made the arrangements. Everyone honoured the arrangement and the marriage is a good match.

Lynesse Hightower

Lynesse Hightower

{$Title}

Second Born, Daughter: Lynesse was born in 112 and is quite the spitting image of her cousin, once removed, Queen Alicent as a child. This has gained her quite the popularity. Lyneese was six when she lost her mother, it affected her greatly and became quite the morose child. The only thing that could console her was her newborn brother Martyn. She would carry him around, under the watchful eye of the household and he became like a doll for her.

Lyonel Hightower

Lyonel Hightower

{$Title}

Third Born, Son and Heir: The future Lord Hightower! Lyonel is Ormund's favourite though he does try not to make it too apparent. He was born in 117 A.C. and has been Ormund's pride and joy ever since. Lyonel is with him quite a lot of the time, learning what it takes and means to be a powerful nobleman.

Martyn Hightower

Martyn Hightower

{$Title}

Fourth Born, Son: There is a shameful schism between Ormund and his youngest. He was a difficult pregnancy that ended the life of Ormund's wife in 118 A.C. and despite himself, Ormund can't entirely forget that fact when he looks on Martyn. He is not cruel or even unkind to the boy. Just a distance in the bond of father and son. Since he is so young, Ormund allows the household to attend mostly to Martyn. Ormund has noticed that this has also caused a bond between him and his older sister, Lynesse.
