Game of Thrones Modern AU: Willas Tyrell
He’s the oldest son of the Tyrell family and heir to Highgarden. Spends most of his time with books and birds, but don’t let those facts and his kind demeanor fool. The boy once dueled proper against Oberyn Martell, Prince of Dorne—and not the old fashioned kind with swords that the careful lords play. No, they dueled with pistols, three paces apart, turn, shoot, first shot off that hits the mark wins. It seems a fool’s game to duel so brutally for sport but luckily Willas got off lightly; they don’t use pistols of that sort in Dorne and Oberyn’s shot went rogue. The bullet what could’ve killed Willas right out blasted his knee. Busted the bone to pieces. The Doctor’s patched him up fine and all but there’s no getting rid of that limp. No, poor Willas is a cripple now, but that hasn’t stopped him. Nowadays he tends to his little aviary, while drafting out new state of the art car designs off the top of his pretty little head, even sometimes asking Oberyn for input. The two have kept in touch after the accident, their shared passion for automobiles stronger than the bad blood spilled at that tourney all those years ago.
History and Lore of Westeros - House Tyrell
House Tyrell trace our descent to Garth Greenhand, the legendary first King of the Reach who made the land bloom. But so too does every noble House around us. It seems dear ancestor Garth planted many flowers as he plucked. A king should have more consideration for his line, don’t you think? For over a thousand years, the Greenhand’s sons and grandsons ruled the Reach as House Gardener. The offshoots of his daughters grew into vast and powerful Houses in their own right. Except for House Tyrell. We chose instead to serve our Gardener cousins faithfully as stewards, to manage their stronghold of Highgarden and the daily affairs of the Reach.
I just made these, but in the variants of
- lemon ginger
- grapefruit cinnamon
- blood orange clove
I’d be lying if I said I weren’t ridiculously excited over them.
