there is no shame in fear, what matters is how we face it
Brienne of Tarth is the sole surviving child and heir of Lord Selwyn Tarth of Evenfall Hall, on the island of Tarth, located in the Narrow Sea off the coast of the Stormlands. She is unusually tall and muscular for a woman by Westerosi standards and developed a taste for martial activity as a child. Brienne has grown up to become skilled at arms and dreams of becoming a knight. She is also called The Maid of Tarth, or, disparagingly, Brienne the Beauty, due to her appearance.
