Introduced in 1996's A Game of Thrones, Bran is the second eldest son and fourth child of Eddard Stark, the honorable lord of Winterfell, an ancient fortress in the North of the fictional kingdom of Westeros. He subsequently appeared in Martin's A Clash of Kings (1998) and A Storm of Swords (2000). Bran was one of a few prominent characters that were not included in 2005's A Feast for Crows, but returned in the next novel A Dance with Dragons (2011). Bran dreams of becoming a knight, but is rendered paraplegic by Jaime Lannister early into the first novel after discovering the latter's incestuous affair with Cersei Lannister. He is subsequently plagued by dreams of a mysterious figure beckoning him to travel beyond the Wall. Bran's journey alongside a variety companions lead him deeper into the lore and magic of the North, where he begins to discover various mysterious powers and abilities.
