In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the bannermen present for the meeting are Leo Lefford, Harys Swyft, and Addam Marbrand. It is Lefford who suggests ransoming Jaime but several of Lefford's other lines from the passage in the book are given to Kevan in the episode. Swyft suggests returning to Casterly Rock but several of Swyft's other lines are also given to Kevan.
Lord Leo Lefford is the bannerman in charge of Tywin Lannister's baggage train. He later participates in the Battle of the Fords - called the "Battle of Stone Mill" in the TV series and taking place after the Battle of the Blackwater instead of before it - in which he drowns.
