All my life men like you’ve sneered at me, and all my life I’ve been knocking men like you into the dust.―Brienne to Jaime Lannister

This only surviving child of Lord Selwyn Tarth ofEvenfall Hall. Marriage alluded her because of her unusually tall and muscular appearance. She is a martial art expert and an Oathkeeper to Lady Catelyn Stark.

She asks to be named to his Kingsguard as a reward. Renly Baratheon grants her request despite her gender and consequent lack of knighthood.

I always wondered why she never knighted. Patriarchy’s venomous teeth hissed the skilled Brienne’s feet.
