Appearance and Character

See also: Images of Edric Storm

Edric is a sturdily attractive youth, with jet-black hair and deep blue eyes. He is said to be "the very image" of his father, although he also has the large ears common to House Florent.[2][3][4] He is charming and courteous, but also fierce and proud.[3][4] In his manner, Davos Seaworth compares him to both Robert and Renly Baratheon.[5]


Edric was conceived by Robert and Delena on the wedding night of Stannis Baratheon and Selyse Florent (Delena's cousin), in the couple's wedding bed. Stannis saw this as an insult to his honor, so he sent Edric to Storm's End to foster with his other uncle, Renly Baratheon.[6] As Delena was a noblewoman, Edric was acknowledged by his father.[7][2] He was raised in relative comfort at Storm's End under the guardianship of Cortnay Penrose, Renly's castellan, who is very fond of him.[8]

Edric has been sent a gift from his father every year on his name day. These have included a pony, a sable cloak, and a child-sized warhammer similar to his father's weapon. Edric would write to King's Landing to thank his father for the gifts, but upon receiving the letters Robert would laugh and ask Varys what he had sent that year.[5]

Recent Events

A Game of Thrones

After having discovered Gendry, Lord Eddard Stark thinks about all of King Robert I Baratheon's bastards that he knows about, Edric included.[7]

A Clash of Kings

When Stannis besieges Storm's End, Ser Cortnay Penrose resists in fear of what Stannis would do to Edric. Ultimately Stannis takes the castle and ships Edric to Dragonstone, where he spends time with Stannis's daughter, Princess Shireen.[3]

A Storm of Swords

Melisandre pressures Stannis to sacrifice Edric, as she believes that his royal blood would wake dragons from stone to help Stannis. Conversely, Ser Davos Seaworth pressures Stannis to spare him.[4] Edric is leeched and his blood is used in a ritual to curse the three rival kings, Joffrey Baratheon, Balon Greyjoy, and Robb Stark.[5]

Subsequently, Balon falls at Pyke,[9] Robb is killed in the Red Wedding,[10] and Joffrey is poisoned at his royal wedding.[11] Concerned that Stannis will burn Edric, Davos, with the help of Pylos and a small group of king's men, has Edric secretly shipped away to the Free Cities aboard the Mad Prendos.[12] Davos appoints Andrew Estermont, Edric's cousin, to act as his guardian. Gerald Gower, Triston of Tally Hill, Lewys the Fishwife, and Omer Blackberry also accompany Edric, to be his guards and protectors.[13]

A Feast for Crows

Edric is sailing across the narrow sea to Essos on the Mad Prendos with Andrew and other protectors.[14]

A Dance with Dragons

Edric is in hiding in Lys with his guardian and protectors.[13]

Quotes by Edric

I won't go pray to the Lord of Light. I am a Warrior's man, like my father.[12]
- Edric to Pylos

Quotes about Edric

Did the boy charm you? He has that gift. He got it from his father, with the blood. He knows he is a king’s son, but chooses to forget that he is bastard-born.[5]
Stannis Baratheon to Davos Seaworth

The Lord of Light cherishes the innocent. There is no sacrifice more precious. From his king's blood and his untainted fire, a dragon shall be born.[4]
Melisandre to Stannis Baratheon

Davos: His name is Edric Storm, sire.

Stannis: I know his name. Was there ever a name so apt? It proclaims his bastardy, his high birth, and the turmoil he brings with him. Edric Storm. There, I have said it. Are you satisfied, my lord Hand?[4]

Davos Seaworth and Stannis Baratheon

If Stannis is Azor Ahai come again, does that mean Edric Storm must play the part of Nissa Nissa?[4]
