Kevan Lannister was the only surviving brother of Tywin Lannister. He was Regeant of the Iron Throne for Tommen I Baratheon.

Appearance and PersonalityEdit


Kevan was considered subservient to his older brother, Tywin. In fact, he served as Captain to Tywin for several years. Kevan fought in a battle at King's Landing but was thrown from his horse when the horse became startled by the flaming sword of the priest, Thoros of Myr.

Kevan married Dorna Swyft and they had four children together: Lancel, Martyn and Willem (Twins), and daughter, Janei.

A Clash of KingsEdit

At Tywin's behest, Kevan takes part in the Battle of the Blackwater.

A Storm of SwordsEdit

Kevan partakes very little of King's Landings politics, mostly concerning himself with family matters including his sons [Lancel and Martyn.

A Feast for CrowsEdit

Kevan mourns his brother Tywin. He is soon offered a position as Hand of the King by Cersei. However, he easily sees through the ploy, calling Cersei out for lining the council with those who would be subservient to her and being an ineffective queen. He demands his own terms, one of which is Cersei returning to Casterly Rock as a married lady. Furious, Cersei refuses his offer, and Kevan returns to Casterly Rock with Tywin's body, as a means of giving him a proper resting place.

After Cersei is stripped of her title and imprisoned, he is offered the position of King Regent for Tommen.

A Dance With DragonsEdit

Kevan became regent to King Tommen in order to undo the damage that Cersei caused. He was also responsible for making Mace Tyrell hand of the King. He also made two of Tyrell's men members of the small council: Paxter Redwyne became Master of Ships, and Lord Randyll Tarly became the Master of Laws.

He was later lured to Grand Maester Pycelle 's chambers and then shot with a crossbow by the spider, Varys for trying to undo all of the chaos his niece Cersei had caused. He was then stabbed to death by Varys' "little birds".
