Eddard Stark: "You will sail to Dragonstone tonight. You will place this in the hand of Stannis Baratheon. Not his steward, not his captain of the guard, and not his wife. Only Stannis himself."
Tomard: "Yes, my Lord."
— Eddard Stark and Tomard

Tomard is a guardsman sworn to House Stark.

Biography

Season 1

He accompanies Eddard Stark south to King's Landing when he becomes Hand of the King, and is usually seen guarding him with Jory Cassel. He is with Eddard when Renly Baratheon brings news of Robert Baratheon's hunting injury. Eddard instructs Tomard to hand deliver a letter to Stannis Baratheon. Tomard is not present when Eddard and the majority of his guard are killed.[1] He escapes from the capital and successfully delivers the letter, and he is one of very few if any to have survived the Massacre in the Red Keep, where the entire Stark Household in King's Landing was obliterated.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Tomard is nicknamed Fat Tom. He is easily fooled and prone to stating the obvious. He becomes the Captain of Eddard Stark's personal guard, following the death of Jory Cassel and the departure of Jory's replacement Alyn with Lord Beric Dondarrion. As in the show, he is entrusted to deliver a letter to Stannis Baratheon, but is explicitly told to do so during a sea journey North with Eddard's daughters. Unlike in the show, he is killed along with the majority of the guards when Eddard is betrayed by Littlefinger in the Throne Room. The letter is taken from his body, and later presented to Sansa Stark as evidence to her father's alleged treason. As the letter is successfully delivered to Stannis Baratheon in the show, Tomard is not killed and remains alive in the TV continuity. His destination after he completes his assignment is unknown.
