A Song of Ice and Fire: Blood and Stone
Lord Alfric Dannett
The aging lord of House Dannett
The lord of House Dannett is Alfric Dannett, many years a widower. He was a sworn sword to his eldest brother, Sofred, and a stalwart warrior in his day, but now Alfric is a withered shadow of his former self. Steeped in loss, Alfric watched his six brothers die around him during the Rebellion, and has never quite recovered from the trauma.
Even after the Rebellion, the gods weren’t through with Alfric. His wife perished when a portion of the damaged keep collapsed on her and several of her ladies in waiting, leaving him to raise their daughter and son alone. Many believe Alfric’s trials and tragedies have hardened him, but whether that is true is anyone’s guess.
Alfric’s efforts to keep his house from dissolving completely led him into conflict with House Tallystan on several occasions. It’s clear that Alfric holds resentment towards House Tallystan for how well they recovered from the ravages of the rebellion, being elevated by their successes while House Dannett sunk further into obscurity and squalor.
