―The General to Stannis Baratheon[src]

A Baratheon General is a recurring character in the fifth season. He is played by Nigel O'Neill, and debuts in "The Dance of Dragons."[1][2]

Biography Edit

Background Edit

He is a general loyal to House Baratheon of Dragonstone, serving Stannis Baratheon's army in his campaign to retake the North from House Bolton.

Season 5 Edit

Following Ramsay Bolton's attack on the camp, Stannis orders the general to put the guards who were on watch duty in chains and question them to find out if they fell asleep or conspired with the enemy, and then hang them. He is later present during Shireen Baratheon's sacrifice. He looks visibly distressed as he watches her burn alive.[3]

Later, he informs Stannis that nearly half of his army has deserted him, including all the sellswords and horses. He stands behind Stannis as they discover Selyse Baratheon's swaying corpse beneath a tree where she hanged herself. The general then tells Stannis that Melisandre was just seen riding out of camp. Stannis then orders him to get the men into marching formation. As the army approaches Winterfell, they are surprised and attacked by a large force of Bolton cavalry. The general is killed in the ensuing battle.[4]
