Leo Tyrell (son of Moryn)
Leo the Lazy
A Storm of Swords (appendix)|
A Feast for Crows (appears)
Leo Tyrell, known as Lazy Leo, is a member of House Tyrell, a first cousin of Mace Tyrell, the Lord of Highgarden. He is the second son of Ser Moryn Tyrell, the commander of Oldtown's City Watch. Leo is a novice at the Citadel.
Appearance and Character
Having sly hazel eyes and ash-blonde hair which falls over one eye, Leo stands out from the traditional brown eyes and brown hair of the Tyrells. He is handsome and pale, and has a soft voice. Leo dresses in satin striped in the Tyrell colors of green and gold. He has worn a black silk half cape, pinned to his shoulder by a jade rose, and a half cape striped in green and gold.
The arrogant and malicious Leo often gives mocking names to his acquaintances, and speaks unpleasantly of Dornishmen and Summer Islanders. He is disliked by his fellow students. Leo sometimes gambles at the Checkered Hazard, to the point of losing all his money and having to beg for drinks from acquaintances. He has been trained to arms, and is known to be deadly with a bravo's blade and dagger.
A Feast for Crows
Leo had been confined to the Citadel for some unspecified offense, but leaves three days early to gamble and drink in the inns of Oldtown. He stumbles onto the discussion being had at the Quill and Tankard by Roone, Armen, Alleras, Mollander, and Pate about dragons. He confirms that the rumors of the sailors are true, that Daenerys Targaryen is alive and has hatched three living dragons. He also reveals that there is a glass candle burning in the chambers of Archmaester Marwyn. After the others leave the inn, he threatens to take the virginity of Rosey, the girl that Pate has fallen for.
Samwell Tarly recognizes Leo outside the chambers of Marwyn at the Ravenry. Leo is staring intently into a candle flame, and when Alleras asks him if he is searching for his destiny or his death, Leo blinks and replies, "Naked women." Sam is intimidated by Leo, remembering him from their youth, but nevertheless tells him of his deeds in the Night's Watch and that he is now called "Sam the Slayer". Leo laughs, but has no chance to reply as Sam enters Marwyn's chambers.

Dragons and darker things. The grey sheep have closed their eyes, but the mastiff sees the truth. Old powers awaken. Shadows stir. An age of wonder and terror will soon be upon us, an age for gods and heroes.—Leo to Alleras
