Tristifer is the titular Lord of Lordsport after his father, Sawane, is killed by Euron Greyjoy and his elder brother, Harren, dies at Moat Cailin. Euron gives half of the Botley lands to House Wynch of Iron Holt, however, and Tris's uncle Germund claims to be lord.[2]

Tris meets with Lord Rodrik Harlaw at the Ten Towers. He declares his love for Asha Greyjoy at that castle, but Asha spurns him.[2]

After Euron is proclaimed King of the Isles and the North at the kingsmoot, Tristifer sails on his longship to Deepwood Motte with three others of Asha's as she contemplates her next move. He grows a thick brown beard, wears furs, and rides a tall roan stallion.[5] Asha kisses Tris after he tells her of Torgon the Latecomer.[5]

Tris proposes that the ironborn under Asha abandon Westeros and try to make their fortune as traders. When northern mountain clansmen approach Deepwood, Asha abandons the castle and leads her ironborn toward the Bay of Ice. Traveling in the wolfswood, Tris refuses to sleep with Hagen's daughter. They are defeated in the fight by Deepwood Motte by Stannis Baratheon's men, however. Despite not being a warrior Tristifer fights bravely in the battle.[5] While Asha is taken by Stannis for his march on Winterfell, Tris and the other ironborn survivors are imprisoned at Deepwood.[6]
