Victarion Greyjoy is the younger brother of Balon and Euron and the older brother of Aeron. He is the uncle of Theon and Asha. He is the commander of the Iron Fleet and the master of the war-galley Iron Victory.
Victarion is a minor POV character in A Feast for Crows, where he has two chapters called "The Iron Captain" and "The Reaver". He is also a minor POV character in A Dance with Dragons, where he has two chapters called "The Iron Suitor" and "Victarion".
Recognizing the greatness of his older brother Balon, Victarion chose to follow him faithfully. Commanding the Iron Fleet during the Greyjoy Rebellion, and using a battle plan his brother Euron conceived, he maneuvered his fleet into enemy territory and destroyed the Lannister fleet by burning their ships down at anchor. Fate later turned on him however, when his own fleet fell victim to a trap laid by Stannis Baratheon at Fair Isle. During this misfortune, his brother Aeron's ship was torn in two by the warship Fury. Upon learning that his brother Euron had seduced and impregnated his third wife, Victarion murdered her in the name of his own honor, sparing his brother only to avoid the distasteful moniker of "kinslayer." He remains unmarried, as Euron remains unforgiven.
