Dorna Swyft, by SquisherKing
|Born||In ~244–261 AC|
|Spouse||Ser Kevan Lannister|
Lady Dorna Swyft is the daughter of Ser Harys Swyft, the Knight of Cornfield, and the wife of Ser Kevan Lannister. They have four children together.
Appearance and Character
According to Cersei Lannister, she is chinless, chicken-legged and flat-chested. Tyrion Lannister similarly believes Dorna to be chinless like her father, Ser Harys Swyft.
Ser Kevan Lannister considers his wife a gentle soul, never comfortable except at home with friends and kin around her. Dorna had done well by her children, dreamed of having grandchildren, was devout and prayed seven times a day, and loved needlework and flowers. She disliked traveling and preferred remaining at her residence in Lannisport.
When Dorna was younger, her father borrowed large sums of money from Lord Tytos Lannister. After the War of the Ninepenny Kings, the young heir of Casterly Rock, Ser Tywin Lannister demanded that all those who took loans from House Lannister had to repay them immediately, those unable to do so instead had to surrender a family member as a hostage until their debt was settled.
When debt collectors arrived at Cornfield, Ser Harys was unable to pay and was forced to hand Dorna over to the custody of Ser Kevan Lannister. By 266 AC, Dorna and Kevan had wed.
A Game of Thrones
Tyrion Lannister believes that Ser Harys Swyft's greatest accomplishment is wedding his daughter to Ser Kevan Lannister, therefore attaching himself to House Lannister.
