Appearance and Character

See also: Images of Oberyn Martell

Oberyn has a lined face with thin eyebrows, black "viper" eyes and a sharp nose.[2] His hair is lustrous and black with only a few silver streaks and recedes from his brow into a widow's peak.[1]

Oberyn is a forceful, lusty man with a quick wit and barbed tongue. He studied at the Cytadela for a while, and apparently forged several maester links but eventually grew bored and left the order. Oberyn had traveled the world, and even founded his own mercenary company. He had a very close relationship with his sister Elia and they were inseparable as children.

Oberyn rides a black stallion with a tail the color of fire. He wears a pale red silk cloak and a shirt armored with overlapping discs of bright copper. His helm is adorned with a copper sun and he owns a steel round shield in the Dornish style that is decorated with the sigil of Ród Martellów.[1]

Oberyn is an exceptional fighter, his speed and skill with both spear and sword are renowned. In battle, along with his brightly-polished round shield, Oberyn wields an ash spear eight feet long with a steel spearhead and spike. He chooses to wear lightly armored greaves, vambraces, gorget, spaulder and steel codpiece, in addition to supple leather and flowing silk. He wears a helm without a visor and scales of gleaming copper over his byrnie. [3]


Early Life

In his youth, Oberyn was fostered at Sandstone.[4] At sixteen, Oberyn was found in bed with the paramour of Lord Edgar Yronwood, so the lord challenged him to a duel. The duel was to first blood, given the prince’s youth and high birth, and both took cuts. Lord Edgar's wounds festered and killed him. Oberyn has been known as the "Red Viper" ever since by friends and foes alike, due to rumors that he fought the duel with a poisoned blade.[1] Afterward, Oberyn was sent to Stare Miasto and then to Lys in temporary exile (though it was not called exile) in order for Ród Martellów to make peace with Ród Yronwoodów, Quentyn Martell was sent as a ward to Ród Yronwoodów.[5]

Oberyn had traveled extensively in the Wolne Miasta, where he learned much about poisons and perhaps even darker arts. He had studied at the Cytadela, going so far as to forge six links of a maester's chain before he grew bored. He had soldiered in the Sporne Ziemie across the Narrow Sea, riding with the Drudzy Synowie for a time before forming his own company. It is said that he beds both men and women, and has begotten bastard girls all over Dorne. The Żmijowe Bękarcice, men call them.[1]

Oberyn, however, does not let his children grow up wanting: he takes responsibility for them, and actively seeks to help raise all his children (something few lords do when it comes to their bastard offspring). He teaches them how to defend themselves and allows them great independence in growing up.

When Oberyn was young, the ruling Princess of Dorne planned to wed Oberyn or his sister, Princess Elia, to one of Lord Tywin's children, or both of them to his twins. For that purpose, they visited Casterly Rock, where they met Cersei, Jaime and Tyrion Lannister. However, they arrived shortly after Joanna Lannister's death, which left Lord Tywin unreceptive. He offered the newborn Tyrion instead, which was seen as an insult.

Oberyn is also primarily responsible for giving modern revitalization to the ongoing feud between his House and the Tyrells, because he accidentally crippled Willas Tyrell in a tourney, Oberyn struck Willas breastplate clean, but his foot caught in a stirrup as he fell and his horse fell on top of him. Oberyn even sent his own maestar to help treat Willas. Willas himself holds no grudge against Oberyn and the two correspond via raven message even after the accident as both share a passion for horses.[1] Prince Oberyn was unhorsed by Prince Rhaegar Targaryen at a tourney at Koniec Burzy.[6] He was unhorsed by Ser Barristan Selmy at a different tourney at Koniec Burzy.[7]

Events following Elia's murder

Oberyn had a very close relationship with his sister Elia. Following the Zdobycie Królewskiej Przystani, when he learned that she was raped and murdered by a Lannister Rycerz, Gregor Clegane, along with her son and how her daughter was killed by another Lannister Rycerz (Amory Lorch), he attempted to raise Dorne for Viserys. The new Hand, Jon Arryn, was able to keep the peace, but Oberyn has desired revenge ever since.[1] He seldom left Dorne in a public capacity thereafter.[8]

He and his brother Doran worked in secret for years planning on bringing an end to the reign of Robert Baratheon and destroying Ród Lannisterów. Oberyn traveled to Braavos where Viserys Targaryen and Daenerys Targaryen were being kept by Ser Willem Darry and signed a secret pact that the Sealord of Braavos witnessed, promising Viserys the hand of Arianne Martell in return for Dorne's help in claiming the throne.

The Red Viper vs The Mountain - by zippo514 ©

Prince Oberyn comes to Królewska Przystań to claim the seat on the Mała Rada on Prince Doran Martell's behalf and obtain justice for his sister Elia Martell's murderer, as was agreed with the acting Namiestnik Króla, Tyrion Lannister.[1] However, it soon becomes clear that the new Hand, Lord Tywin Lannister, means to forgo that promise. Tywin plans on lying to Oberyn and claiming that the now deceased Ser Amory Lorch is responsible for all three deaths (Lorch was guilty of the death of only Rhaenys).[8]

Oberyn gives King Joffrey Baratheon a red gold scorpion brooch for the royal wedding. [9]

When Tyrion is accused of Joffrey's murder, Oberyn is one of the judges. The day before a judgement is to be pronounced, Oberyn offers to be Tyrion's champion in a trial by combat, if Tyrion tells who is guilty of the murder of Elia. Tyrion takes Oberyn up on his offer. He denies any involvement of his father but tells Oberyn that Lorch killed Rhaenys and Ser Gregor Clegane killed Elia and Aegon.[10] Oberyn knows already that Ser Gregor will be his adversary.

Despite his enormous physical disadvantage, Oberyn using speed manages to wound Clegane several times and cripple him by finding chinks in his armour and severing his hamstring after the Mountain tired from chasing him. As Oberyn prolongs Gregor's death, trying to wring a murder confession from him, the prostrated Clegane manages to grab hold of Oberyn and smash his armoured fist into Oberyn's face, killing him: dashing out his brains after first destroying his teeth and knocking out his eyes. Before killing Oberyn however, Clegane roars his guilt in killing Elia and Aegon for for all to hear. [3]

Uczta dla Wron

Oberyn achieves posthumous vengeance by having coated his spear in a special kind of poison, leaving Clegane to die slowly and in tremendous agony.[2]

Oberyn's daughters, the Żmijowe Bękarcice, seek vengeance for his death; Prince Doran Martell orders Areo Hotah to place them under arrest to keep the peace.[2]

Taniec ze Smokami

Tyene Sand mentions that she knows about the poison her father used on the Mountain and that if his spear so much as broke Cleganes skin then he is dead. [11]
