Biography From the age of eight, Ned Stark had been the foster son of Lord Jon Arryn. He was nurtured together with Robert Paratheon and that he considered Lord Arryn to be his second father. King Aerys II had Ned´s father and brother executed. He then demanded to Lord Arryn that the heads from the wards be sent to the King as well. To this, Lord Arryn rose to rebellion. Ned became the Lord of Winterfell and rallied the North along with Arryn in rebellion.
When the rebellion started, he attempted to get to the White Harbour from the Vale with the help of a fisherman and the daughter. But the fisherman died before task could be accomplished. With the aid of the fisherman´s daughter, he was able to reach Sweetsister. Meanwhile, Robert was waging a war in the South. Before Ned joined him, he married his deceased brother´s betrothed Catelyn Tully. Once the rebellion was nearing it´s end, Ned embarked on the journey towards the Dornish Borders. Prince Rhaeger Targaryen had hidden Ned´s sister Lyanna in the Tower of Joy, within the boundaries of Dornish kingdom. The tower was guarded heavily and Ned engaged into a skirmish with them. This resulted in heavy losses. Unfortunately, Lyanna met her death soon after the battle and this left Ned haunted and scarred for the rest of his life.
