Description

 Historically, House Darry had been one of the more prominent and powerful houses of the Trident, until the fall of the Targaryens in the rebellion. During Robert’s Rebellion, the Darrys defended King Aerys against Robert Baratheon and their liege lord, Hoster Tully, until the bitter end. The current lord, Ser Raymun Darry, lost his three older brothers at the Battle of the Trident. The defeat of the Targaryens cost the Darrys half of their lands, most of their wealth, and almost all their power.

 In the modern day, House Darry are a shadow of their former selves, lacking in resources and commanding very little respect. They still hold some sway with other houses who stayed loyal to the Targaryens, looked upon highly for their perseverance to the bitter end.

Relations to House Tallystan

 Once, before the rebellion, the Lords of House Darry counted House Tallystan amongst their staunchest allies. Both had strong ties to the Targaryens, and their close proximity helped form a strong bond between the two houses. This all changed when House Tallystan answered Jon Arryn’s call to arms and defected to the side of the rebels, and the two houses were pitted against one another.

 House Tallystan’s military were personally responsible for a great many of Darry’s losses, ensuring that Lord Raymun has remained bitterly resentful of Tallystan men, even to this day.
