Urrigon and his younger brother Aeron were great friends during their childhood. They were both sexually abused by their brother Euron as children. Urrigon and Aeron often played at the finger dance together. Once, Aeron threw an axe that shaved off part of Urrigon's hand. The maester of their father's new wife, Lady Piper, insisted on sewing Urrigon's fingers back on instead of treating the amputation. Urrigon's hand became infected. They eventually amputated his arm, but it was already too late, and Urrigon died at the age of fourteen as a result of the infection.
Urrigon's father, Lord Quellon Greyjoy, and older brothers, Balon, Euron, and Victarion, had been away from Pyke at the time, fighting the final battles of Robert's Rebellion. Lord Quellon died, and Urrigon's brother Balon returned home as the new Lord of the Iron Islands. To avenge his brother's death, he took off the maester's fingers and had Lady Piper sew them back on. The maester died raving.
