Character and Appearance
He is a prematurely old and tedious man lacking in political savvy. His sole military accomplishment is the Siege of Koniec Burzy. Though he has tried to use the Battle of Ashford as evidence of strategic brilliance, he actually had little to do with the fighting as the battle was won by his vanguard, led by Randyll Tarly, before his main force entered the field. He serves as the figurehead of his powerful house for his more intelligent family members.
Mace has always dreamed of his daughter being a Queen. He supported Renly Baratheon and Loras Tyrell when they presented a plan to crown Renly and have him wed Margaery Tyrell, becoming Namiestnik Króla to Renly I. However, King Renly was slain at Koniec Burzy before consummating the marriage. Mace responded by moving his army to Gorzki Most to plan his next move with his sons. They were joined by Petyr Baelish, who offered an alliance from King Joffrey Baratheon and Ród Lannisterów. He joined Tywin's army to march on and defeat Stannis at the Bitwa nad Czarnym Nurtem; there he commanded the host's left. His reward was a seat on the Mała Rada as Starszy nad Statkami.
Mace served as one of the three judges at the trial of Tyrion Lannister for the murder of Joffrey. He wanted Tyrion dead because his daughter was drinking from the cup that contained the poison that killed Joffrey. Unbeknownst to Mace it was his mother Olenna Tyrell who poisoned Joffrey.
Uczta dla Wron
He was charged by Queen Regent Cersei Lannister with the capture of Koniec Burzy in order to remove him from Królewska Przystań. With Mace gone Cersei plotted against Margaery. Reciprocal accusations of immorality led to the imprisonment of both Margaery and Cersei by the Wiara w Siedmiu. When Mace received news of this he abandoned the siege and marched his army back to Królewska Przystań.
Taniec ze Smokami
Mace arrived at the city to find Margaery and her cousins already released. Given the weak evidence against them they were put into the custody of his bannerman Randyll Tarly, whose army reached Królewska Przystań first. Their release was conditional on Tarly's holy oath to return them for trial. Cersei Lannister was stripped of the regency; Kevan Lannister arrived in the city and was made Regent to King Tommen.
To placate Ród Tyrellów following Cersei's accusations, Kevan made multiple concessions to Mace. He named Mace the Namiestnik Króla, a title Mace had desired since Tywin's death. Kevan appointed two of Mace's bannermen to the King's council. Despite numerous threats facing the Żelazny Tron, Mace refused to march his army from the city before his daughter was acquitted. Kevan grew increasingly resentful of Mace's apparent insatiability. Mace added a hundred men of the reach to the city watch and planned a new tower of the hand double the size of its predecessor.
Kevan was killed by Varys leaving the role of Regent to King Tommen vacant.
