"Using some vile sorcery, your brother fell on Stafford Lannister with an army of wolves. Thousands of good men were butchered."
―Ser Lancel Lannister[src]

Stafford Lannister is an unseen character mentioned in the second season. Ser Stafford Lannister commands the new House Lannister army that is being raised in the Westerlands to replace Jaime Lannister's army which was destroyed in the Battle of the Whispering Wood. Stafford's army is defeated during the Battle of Oxcross, in which Stafford himself is killed.[1]

BiographyEdit

Season 2Edit

Robb Stark's army sneaks through the mountains bordering the Westerlands, and ambushes Stafford's army at night in their own camp at Oxcross. Stafford's army of raw recruits is massacred, and Stafford himself is killed. After the Lannister defeat at the Battle of Oxcross, King Joffrey Baratheon torments Sansa Stark before the royal court; Ser Lancel Lannister reports that Robb Stark employed sorcery and wolves to massacre the Lannister army and that after the battle, the Northmen feasted on the flesh of the slain.[2]

In the books Edit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Ser Stafford Lannister is the brother of Joanna Lannister. He and his sister were the children of Lord Tytos Lannister's younger brother. Thus, both Joanna and Stafford were first cousins of Tywin and the main branch of the family.

In his youth, Stafford and two more Lannisters were captured by Lady Tarbeck in retaliation for the imprisonment of her lord husband by Tytos Lannister. She threatened to kill the captives if her husband would be harmed. Tywin suggested his father to send Lord Tarbeck back to his wife in three pieces, but the soft-hearted Tytos complied and returned Tarbeck unharmed in exchange for the three Lannisters.

Stafford dies in the Battle of Oxcross, killed by Lord Rickard Karstark. Both Jaime Lannister and Brynden Tully consider him a poor commander as he didn't scout the area believing Robb Stark was far away. Robb Stark had been led by Grey Wind along a goat path and had thus bypasses fortified positions in order to attack undetected.

The Lannister survivors regrouped at Lannisport under Ser Daven Lannister, Stafford's son and widely considered to be a more intelligent commander than his father.
