|Balon IX Greyjoy
Rodrik Greyjoy was a member of House Greyjoy and the oldest son of Balon Greyjoy, Lord of the Iron Islands. He was killed during Greyjoy's Rebellion. He may have been named after his maternal uncle, Lord Rodrik Harlaw of Harlaw.
Rodrik was an alcoholic with a tendency for "drunken cuffs".
During Greyjoy's Rebellion, the bronze bell of the Booming Tower at Seagard was rung for the first time in three hundred years, when Rodrik led longships in the storming of Seagard. Lord Jason Mallister killed Rodrik beneath the castle walls and threw the ironmen back into the sea.
A Clash of Kings
Theon Greyjoy has little love for his eldest brother, telling Patrek Mallister he holds no enmity towards Patrek's father, Lord Jason, or the Mallisters for slaying Rodrik during Greyjoy's Rebellion.
