Maris Baratheon was a noblewoman from House Baratheon during the reign of kings Viserys I, Aegon II and Aegon III Targaryen. She was one of the four daughters of Lord Borros Baratheon of Storm's End. She and her sisters were known as the Four Storms.
Appearance and Character
At the start of the Dance of the Dragons, Prince Aemond Targaryen was sent by the green council to Storm's End to gain the support of its lord for the greens. Lord Borros offered the hand of any of his four daughters to the prince, noting that Maris would make a clever wife. Aemond agreed to a betrothal, though the identity of the daughter is not known, save it was not Maris. The lord and prince were haggling over dates and dowries the morning Prince Lucerys arrived as an envoy representing the blacks. Lucerys claimed he could not marry Maris or any of her sisters due to his betrothal to his cousin, Rhaena Targaryen, and was sent away by Lord Borros.
After Aemond and Lucerys started to confront one another, Maris taunted Aemond, asking if it was his eye that Lucerys had taken, "or one of [his] balls." Aemond was enraged, and took his leave. Mushroom claims that Prince Aemond cut out the eyes from Lucerys's corpse after killing him, and presented them to Maris on a bed of seaweed, though Archmaester Gyldayn notes that this seems excessive.
By the time of King Aegon III's coronation, Maris had joined the silent sisters. Mushroom claims that her mother, Lady Elenda, had Maris's tongue removed, but Gyldayn notes that this can be discounted, as the belief all silent sisters are tongueless is no more than a myth.
