Joffrey Caswell was the Lord of Bitterbridge and the head of House Caswell during the reign of King Aerys I Targaryen. At the time of the Second Blackfyre Rebellion, he was twenty years of age.[3]


Joffrey was thin, a poor rider, and even worse lance. He liked drinking wine.[3]


The hedge knight Ser Kyle the Cat once served House Caswell as a sworn sword, and made the first sword for three-year-old Joffrey, carving a small wooden sword out of pine to fit his hand.[3]

Lord Joffrey attended the wedding tourney at Whitewalls in 212 AC, and fell asleep in his wine at the wedding feast. The morning after, he faced Ser Kyle in his first joust of the tourney. Kyle planned to throw the match in order to compliment Lord Joffrey on his growth as a warrior, and become a Caswell man again. Though Joffrey's horse was slow, his lance was wobbly, and he barely struck Kyle's shoulder, the Cat fell off his horse into the dirt. Joffrey excitedly pumped his lance in the air after his defeat of Ser Kyle.[3]

However, when Kyle came to Joffrey to pay the forfeit, and told him about how he had once made his first sword, Joffrey did not recognize him, and said there was no place at Bitterbridge for knights as feeble as Kyle the Cat had shown himself to be. He still took Kyle's arms, armor, and horse, since Kyle could not pay the ransom for them.[3]
