Appearance and Character
The aristocratic Imry distrusts lowborn and mercenaries. The knight wears heavy steel.
A Clash of Kings
After the death of Renly Baratheon beneath Storm's End, Ser Imry joins Stannis Baratheon alongside all members of House Florent.
Aboard Fury, Imry is made admiral of Stannis's royal fleet in anticipation of the Battle of the Blackwater, with the title of Lord High Captain. His ships capture six fishing skiffs near Merling Rock. Imry warns that Joffrey's defenders may use wildfire during the upcoming battle, although the Alchemists' Guild is not as strong as they once were. Unbeknownst to Imry, however, Queen Regent Cersei Lannister has tasked the alchemists of King's Landing with making more wildfire. Wisdom Hallyne attributes the unexpected success of their magical spells to the possible reappearance of dragons.
Because Stannis's fleet is four times larger than that of Joffrey I Baratheon, Imry does not bother to send scouts ahead as Ser Davos Seaworth advises. Distrusting Salladhor Saan, Imry tasks the sellsail with the rearguard in Blackwater Bay.
Imry leads the main force up the Blackwater Rush. To avoid scorpions and spitfires defending the walls of King's Landing, Imry's ships lower their sails and only use oars. The Lord High Captain disregards two new towers at the mouth of the river. After wildfire is utilized against Imry's fleet, a chain is raised between the towers and his ships become trapped in the river. While Fury battles Godsgrace, both ships are engulfed by green flame.
A Storm of Swords
The imprisoned Lord Alester Florent tells Davos that his nephew Imry died at the Blackwater. Stannis recalls Imry as a fool for not avoiding Tyrion Lannister's trap.
Quotes by Imry
A small spoon of victory is just the thing to settle the stomach before battle. It makes the men hungry for a larger helping.—Imry to his captains
Quotes about Imry
It had been Ser Imry Florent who led them blindly up the Blackwater Rush with all oars pulling, paying no heed to the small stone towers at the mouth of the river. Davos was not like to forget him.—thoughts of Davos Seaworth
Curse the Imp, curse the pyromancers, curse that fool of Florent who sailed my fleet into the jaws of a trap. Or curse me for my stubborn pride, for sending her away when I needed her most. But not Melisandre. She remains my faithful servant.
