Lir Baryn is a high noble of Andor and High Seat of House Baryn. The sign of House Baryn is the silver Winged Hammer.

Appearance Edit

He is a slender man and is given to frowning.

History Edit

He was one of the nobles who didn't support Morgase Trakand when she assumed the throne after the Succession, and was forced to swear fealty to her afterwards.

Activities Edit

He was one of the nobles who hung around Lord Gaebril in the Throne Room of Andor. After Gaebril's demise he fawned over Rand al'Thor.

He flees Andor when both Elenia Sarand and Naean Arawn who had proclaimed themselves for the Lion Throne when Rand had been kidnapped by the White Tower Aes Sedai, are imprisoned by Dyelin Taravin.

He joined Arymilla Marne's forces and laid siege to Caemlyn.

Lir and his armsmen ride with the army when Arymilla mobilizes her entire force and attacks the Far Madding Gate. Arymilla's army is hit behind by half of Elayne's force and in the end Arymilla's army surrenders. Lir is brought before Elayne Trakand and publicly throws his support behind her.

He is present at the meeting with the neutral High Seats and Elayne. There, they throw their support behind Elayne giving her the required Houses she needs to obtain the Lion Throne[1].

Elayne gives him permission to view Caemlyn from afar after he tries to insist upon a siege to take back the city from the trollocs.
