House Redwyne, Lords of the Arbor, Sworn to Tyrell
Their seat is the Arbor, an island south of the Whispering Sound. Redwyne is a powerful house with strong ties to the Tyrells, and provides a significant portion of the fleet of the Reach, owning 200 warships and five times as many merchant vessels. Their blazon is a burgundy grape cluster on blue, symbolising the famed wines of the Arbor.
The current Lord of the Arbor, Paxter Redwyne, is married to his cousin, Mina Tyrell, the sister of his liege, Lord Mace Tyrell. His elderly aunt, Olenna Redwyne, the “Queen of Thorns”, is the mother of Mace and Mina, Lady Olenna’s influence over House Tyrell gives the Redwynes a strong voice in the Reach.

The Comic Girls of Owen Fitzgerald

“Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”

Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov (via catelynstarks)

BRAAVOS is comprised of a hundred islands linked together by small stone bridges spanning the many canals throughout the city. There are no trees to be found within the city, making Braavos a city of stone architecture and granite monuments. The streets are lined with houses made of grey stone, built so close that they lean upon one another. Some houses are built above waterways. Above the houses and canals there is an aqueduct, called the sweetwater river, that brings fresh water from the mainland as the water from the lagoon is brackish, briny and unfit for drinking.
Braavos has a seafaring trade culture. Braavosi ships paint their hulls purple and their merchant ships sail to many distant lands and bring their trade and wealth back home. The city is renowned worldwide for its courtesans. Every courtesan has her own barge and servants to work them. The beauty of famed courtesans has inspired many a song. They are showered with gifts from goldsmiths and craftsmen beg for their custom. Nobility and rich merchants pay the courtesans large amounts of money to appear alongside them at events, and bravos are known to kill each other in their names.
Braavosi culture has created a unique form of sword fighting, called Water Dancing. The style is a refined form of fencing in which the practitioner stands sideways and wields a slender blade. Bravos dress in flashy colors while the very rich and powerful dress in clothes that blues that are almost black and blacks. Officials of Braavos, called keyholders and justiciars, wear drab coats of brown or grey.
