House Greyjoy

Where are they now?

-Balon, decides that he is going to capture the North while Robb's forces are in the south. He gives Yara 30 longships to take Deepwood Motte. He gives Theon one ship to go raiding along the stony shore. An argument between Balon and Theon ensues with Balon accusing Theon of becoming weak from his time with the Starks. He remains in Pyke while his children set out on their missions.

-Yara, known as Asha in the books, is given 30 longships to take Deepwood Motte. She succeeds in her mission. Theon sends for her to bring reinforcements to help him keep Winterfell. She arrives with just 20 men and try's to get her brother to leave Winterfell and come home and pleads with him not to die so far from the sea. He refuses and Asha returns to Pyke without him.
-Theon, was commanded by his Lord Father to raid the fishing villages along the Stony Shore. However Theon takes it upon himself to capture Winterfell while Robb is away. He takes it easily. He be-heads Rodrik and makes a botch of the killing needing 4 swings to finish the job. Osha seduces him and convinces him she is on his side. She then helps Bran and Rickon escape and hide in the Crypts beneath Winterfell. Theon cannot find the boys and ends up capturing 2 children from a nearby farm. They are killed and hung at the gates of Winterfell and Theon tells everyone they are the Stark boys. When Yara arrives she asks Theon to come with her because everyone in the North hates him for what he has done to the Stark boys. He does not listen to her and stays in Winterfell. When Winterfell is surrounded by Northmen Theon tries to ready his mean for battle and gives them a rousing speech, however he is betrayed by Dagmer, who knocks him out. Theon then finds himself in the hands of Ramsay Snow, who tortures and castrates him and forces him to become his servant "Reek".
