Lyonel Corbray is Lord of Heart's Home and head of House Corbray. He has two brothers, Ser Lyn and Ser Lucas.[5] Lyonel is over forty years old.[3]


When Lord Corbray was wounded during the Battle of the Trident, Lyonel carried his father back to the maesters in the rear, while his younger brother, Ser Lyn Corbray, grabbed their father's sword, Lady Forlorn, and led a charge against the Dornishmen. When Lord Corbray died, Lyonel inherited the titles and lands while Lyn received Lady Forlorn. Lyonel felt he was cheated of his birthright.[5]

Lyonel's wife bore a sickly child who died in infancy, so Lyonel's heir is his brother, Lyn.[4]
