* {{Foil}}: To Daemon Blackfyre. Both charismatic figures who are backed to usurp the throne despite incredibly weak claims (in Daemon's case, being a bastard, in Renly's being the youngest brother), both make enemies of their own blood in doing so, [[spoiler: both ultimately killed by said blood in a fairly underhanded manner, [[HistoricalHeroUpgrade and both considered good kings who never were by their supporters.]]]] Daemon however, was considered an excellent warrior and an otherwise genuine KnightInShiningArmor despite his Rebellion, while Renly likely never fought for real outside of jousts and the like, and was a smarmy {{Jerkass}} in private. [[spoiler: And while Bloodraven utterly loathed the Blackfyres and had zero regrets putting them in the ground, Stannis ends up regretting Renly's demise, and is haunted by whatever culpability he had in his assanination.]]

* BoisterousBruiser: Most Baratheons [[note]]-except Renly, who didn't get to be a bruiser-[[/note]] fall under this trope (even Stannis, who is unique in his soberness and lack of joviality about it). The most notable Baratheons use the Nikita Kruschev method of diplomacy of drinking their foes stupid until they make them their friends.

Added DiffLines:

* SpannerInTheWorks: While Littlefinger may have been the overall mastermind, it was Renly's actions that, unintentionally, ensured that a straightforward SuccessionCrisis became a war of [[DividedWeFall multiple factions]]:
** Ned wanted a smooth transition to Stannis over the illegitimate children, yet Renly's decision to abandon Ned and leave the capital with Loras and their contingent prevented Ned from having proper allies at the key moment of Robert's death, forcing him to turn to Littlefinger and Janos Slynt instead, leading to his downfall. In his defense, Renly was acting in self-preservation and feared for his life, but things could have gone the other way had he lingered. Cersei later noted that her coup over Ned was closer than expected and that any other additional factor could have tipped the balance the other way.
** Renly declaring himself a King divided the Stormlands into Pro-Stannis and Pro-Renly factions and furthermore alienated outsiders. The North rebelled against the Iron Throne after Ned's capture and execution, and when considering a rival claimant to back rejected Renly leapfrogging the line of succession and setting a dangerous precedent, which coupled with Stannis' silence, led them to declare Robb King in the North. This in turn led the North and Riverland Lords to declare Robb King in the North. [[ForWantOfANail Had it not been for Renly]], the North would have probably rallied behind Stannis as Ned intended, and there would have been a proper alliance against the Lannisters.

He was noted for his skill in jousting and Hand to King Jaehaerys II, Lord Ormund commanded the Westerosi army his booming laugh. When Ser Duncan was on trial, Lyonel supported him during the War Trial of the Ninepenny Kings. Faith. He knighted Raymun Fossoway so that he might help Duncan as well.

Later in life he rose in rebellion against King Aegon V, outraged that Prince Duncan had broken his marriage contract to his daughter. The rebellion ended when Ser Duncan the Tall defeated Lyonel in a duel and another marriage pact (between Lyonel's heir, Ormund, and Aegon V's daughter, Rhaelle)

* DiedInYourArmsTonight: He perished in the arms of his son and heir, Steffon.

* DiedInYourArmsTonight: AnAxeToGrind: This was his weapon of choice when fighting at melees and tournaments.
* BoisterousBruiser: And, funny with it. Some of his outrageous behaviour is for intimidation's sake. But, mostly... you get the impression he's greatly enjoying himself by getting stuck in.
* TheChampion: To Dunk.
* TheCharmer:
He perished is known for his friendly and engaging personality.
* DramaticIrony: Aegon V had promised Prince Duncan to Lyonel's daughter. After Prince Duncan refused the match and married Jenny of Oldstones instead, Lyonel was furious, breaking all ties with the Iron Throne and naming himself Storm King. Lyonel returned to the fold after he was beaten in single combat by a member of Aegon V's Kingsguard. That member? Ser Duncan the Tall.
* TheDreaded: A light hearted example. At a jousting tournament Lyonel had developed the habit of laughing the entire time he faced lesser foes and then tossing his defeated opponents expensive decorative helm pieces to his adoring fans as a souvenir. After a string of these victories most high born knights were terrified of challenging him to a joust lest they be made a fool of.
* TheGadfly: Oh, yes. Not just one to leave the puffed-up and pointless looking embarrassed on the field. He's quite capable of making them openly trip over their own misdeeds, words, oaths and promises, too. Can be oddly [[BrutalHonesty Brutally Honest]], about it: a prince may be a prince, but if he's also a little snot, he'll be called out for that.

* FrontlineGeneral: KnightInShiningArmor: He personally led championed Ser Duncan against Prince Aerion during the forces Trial of the Seven Kingdoms in order to save Dunk from losing a foot and a hand for attacking Aerion in defence of a commoner.
* OurFounder: He can be seen as this, in light of the recent turn in fortunes for the Baratheons. His unsuccessful rebellion gave them a claim to the Iron throne, which they made good on in Robert's Rebellion.
* ThePrankster: When jousting any challenger he felt was unworthy to face him, he proceeded to laugh until he'd unhorsed them. In many instances instead of aiming to knock his challengers off their horses, he often aimed for his opponent's decorative pieces to knock them off or simply chopped them off afterwards with his sword and flung them

* NumberTwo: To King Jaehaerys II.TrialByCombat: Participated in the Trial of the Seven in favor of Ser Duncan the Tall against Prince Aerion. Later he fought against Ser Duncan in a trial to determine the outcome of Lord Lyonel's rebellion against Aegon V.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: Aegon V and Lyonel were such close friends that they sought to cement their friendship formally by betrothing their children to one another, uniting the two houses. Unfortunately, Aegon's son Prince Duncan had other plans, and ran off to wed his lover in a secret marriage. Lyonel was so outraged at this affront that he renounced his pledge of loyalty and rose up in revolt. Thankfully, he and Aegon were able to patch things up again eventually.

!!!King Robert's Bastards

Robert Baratheon is known to have fathered - according to Maggy the Frog's prophecy - a total of sixteen bastards, though only one has been acknowledged. Varys admits to knowing of eight. Five have been seen by point of view characters, while two others have been mentioned only in passing. Because of how Eddard words Robert's will, Cersei begins a campaign to kill all of Robert's bastards, but Tyrion stops it after an ugly scene with Barra's mother fighting to protect the baby.

[[folder:Tropes Related to King Robert's Bastards]]
* BoisterousBruiser: All of the grown bastards shown in the story are said to have an inclination towards fighting and have the physical build to show it. Edric Storm in particular is as boisterous as his father is.
* HeroicBastard: All of Robert's bastards seen so far are somewhere on the heroic side of things, being pleasant people who often show concern for others.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: [[spoiler:Much unlike Robert's "trueborn" sons]], all the bastards are shown to have striking Baratheon features. They are also very friendly and easygoing.

The eldest of Robert's bastards, conceived whilst he was being fostered in the Vale. She serves as a guide on the rocky climb from the Vale to the Eyrie, leading trains of mules. She interacts with Alayne Stone [[spoiler: (who in truth is a disguised Sansa Stark)]] during her stay there.

[[folder: Edric Storm]]
!!Edric Storm
-->''"My father taught me to fight."''

One of the bastard sons of King Robert, Edric grew up at Storm's End. Robert acknowledged him, mostly because his mother is Delena of House Florent (who is daughter of Colin Florent, Selyse Baratheon's uncle), and bastards that are of noble blood on both sides are a bit more acceptable. Edric was taken in by Stannis in ''Clash of Kings'' after he takes over Storm's End, and he has since then become friends with Shireen Baratheon, daughter of his uncle Stannis and his aunt Selyse.

[[folder: Edric Storm]]
!!Edric Storm
-->''"My father taught me to fight."''

One of the bastard sons of
King Robert, Edric grew up at Storm's End. Robert acknowledged him, mostly because Argilac Durrandon, claiming his mother is Delena of House Florent (who is daughter of Colin Florent, Selyse Baratheon's uncle), and bastards that are of noble blood on both sides are a bit more acceptable. Edric was taken in by Stannis in ''Clash of Kings'' after he takes over ancient castle, Storm's End, and he has since then become friends with Shireen Baratheon, daughter of his uncle Stannis the Storm Queen Argella. He and his aunt Selyse.Argella had at least one child together, a son named Davos. He was also the first person to serve the office of Hand of the King.



* AwesomeMcCoolName: Edric Storm. C'mon.
* TheCharmer: At such a young age, too. According to Stannis he got it from his dad.
* DropTheHammer: He was given a miniature warhammer like Robert's for his nameday.
* HumanSacrifice: Melisandre wanted to use him as a sacrifice because of his royal blood.
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: Edric is one of the many bastards of King Robert, but he is the only recognized one and the only one born out of a noblewoman; as such, he is the highest-born bastard in Westeros.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Edric is described as having a personality resembling Robert and Renly.
* MeaningfulName: InUniverse and {{Lampshaded}} by Stannis:
-->'''Stannis:''' Was there ever a name so apt? It proclaims his bastardy, his high birth, and the turmoil he brings with him.
* NominalImportance: Davos is unnerved when Stannis doesn't address his name and calls him "Edric Storm" as often as possible when speaking of him.
* OnlyFriend: He's Shireen Baratheon's only friend (if you leave out [[MonsterClown Patchface]].)
* ParentalAbandonment: Subverted. Robert wasn't involved in the lives of most of his bastards (he doesn't even know about most of them), but not Edric.
* PutOnABus: [[spoiler:Davos and the King's Men have him whisked away from Dragonstone and taken to Lys in Essos with several knights for protection in order to prevent Melisandre from sacrificing him]].
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Not only does he bear the classic Baratheon looks with black hair, blue eyes, and athletic build, he has the prominent ears inherited from his Florent mother. Ouch.
** Considering who their parents are, he should actually look similar to Shireen minus the greyscale... Of course, he has the slight "advantage" of being born a male to try pulling those ears off.
