Game of Thrones
Bronn is a sellsword of low-birth, who fought as Tyrion Lannister’s champion, when the Imp was accused of the attempted murder of Bran Stark. Bronn slew Ser Vardis Egen, and won Tyrion’s freedom in the Trial by Combat.
Bronn entered into Tyrion’s service as a sellsword, with the promises of wealth and Lannister gold. He escorted Tyrion to the Green Fork, where Lord Tywin Lannister’s forces were encamped. Before the battle, Bronn found Shae, and brought her to Tyrion.
Bronn was instrumental in the Battle of Blackwater Bay. In the HBO series, Bronn fires the arrow that bathes Blackwater Bay in wildfire. In the book series, Bronn was given the task of pulling the giant chain across Blackwater Bay that trapped Stannis Baratheon’s fleet.
For his service to House Lannister, and for the vital role that he played during the battle, Bronn was awarded Knighthood, and was allowed to choose a noble name. Bronn chose Blackwater, and for his sigil, he chose a flaming-green chain, on a grey-smoking field.
