Name:Eddard Stark
Birthdate:Jan 1

"The blood of the First Men still flows in the veins of the Starks, and we hold to the belief
that the man who passes the sentence should swing the sword.

"If you would take a man's life, you owe it to him to look into his eyes and hear his final words.
And if you cannot bear to do that, then perhaps the man does not deserve to die."

Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell and Warden of the North, is not a cold or distant man, but is often mistaken for one by those who do not know him well. With solemn grey eyes and a reserved demeanor, he lives and leads by the ancient words of his House:

Winter is Coming

This is his one certainty.

Eddard, knows as Ned to his friends and family, was raised among soldiers. After spending half his life fighting wars, he is world-weary of political games, and only wishes to govern the North in relative peace.

And yet.

Duty calls.

As the end of a long summer draws to a close, Ned is asked by King Robert Baratheon, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm, to be the Hand of the King — Robert's right hand, and second-in-command.

Ned is reluctant. But, bound by honor, respect, and a life-long friendship, he agrees. He rides south, for King's Landing, and becomes an unwitting pawn in a cutthroat game of thrones.

[[ physical characteristics : Ned is just shy of six feet tall, with grey eyes, nape-length dark hair, and a closely trimmed beard. He will usually be dressed in a quilted doublet, drawstring pants, a leather belt, and boots. In some instances, he may be wearing a leather overtunic; it will be adorned with a badge bearing the sign of the Hand of the King. If Ned is sporting his riding fur, it will bear a pin with his House sigil, the direwolf. He will always be armed — a sword will perennially hang at his side. ]]

Eddard "Ned" Stark (played by Sean Bean) is from the television show Game of Thrones, based on the fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, and is property of HBO and Random House. I'm not affiliated with them, nor am I making any money off this. Ned appears here for the sole purpose of role-playing in [community profile] milliways_bar, from which no profit whatsoever is being made. Ned's mun is [personal profile] sardonicynic, who is certainly not a duty-bound lord of Winterfell, nor does she pretend to be. (Oh, wait.)
