Lord Osfred Redrill, the Lord of House Redrill was born in the year 238 AL. He was the first born son of Lord Osfrey Redrill and grandson to Oswell Redrill, the Sergeant of the Raven’s Teeth archers who perished at the Battle of Red Grass in Blackfyre’s Rebellion. Due to his Grandfathers unfailing loyalty at the Battle of Red Grass that cost Oswell his life, the good King Daeron II blessed House Redrill with the Redrill Proclamation. That proclamation allowed Osfred to serve as a page and squier to a Targaryen King. So in the year 250 AL, Aegon V took the young lord as his personal squire. It was in Kings Landing at the guidance of Aegon V that Osfred learned the ways of a knight. In five years time he would take his vows in the Great Sept of Baelor.
In the years 255 AL to 260 AL, the young knight Osfred fought in the War of the Ninepenny Kings and at the Battle of Stepstones brought glory to the Redrill name. Fighting alongside Barriston Selmy, Osfred and his Redrill knights stormed a vital point and held it until reinforcements could be brought up. This victory proved the end of the War of the Ninepenny Kings.
Upon returning to Kings Landing, the new King Jaehaerys named Osfred a personal bodyguard and servant to Crown Prince Rhaegar. In 270 AL, King Aerys then named Osfred to Commander of the Gold Cloaks. Not much is known about his position as Commander and he would hold this title for only a year, returning to rule his House at his seat at Castle Ondrew.
At the outset of Robert’s Rebellion, Lord Osfred stayed loyal to the Targaryen crown and once again returned to Prince Rhaegar’s side at the insistence of King Aerys. During the Battle of the Trident, Osfred fought valiantly but ultimately failed to protect Prince Rhaegar from Robert Baratheon’s warhammer. While some loyalists fled and others dropped their weapons for the loose rubies running down the river, Osfred Redrill and Barriston Selmy attended to the dying Prince Rhaegar. Both were captured, spared, and given pardons as long as they bent the knee to King Robert.
While Barriston Selmy retained his role in the Kingsguard, Osfred Redrill opted to return to his seat at Castle Ondrew to rule as a vassal to the Tully banner. His relationship to his Liege Lord can best be described as rocky and it’s clear that Osfred holds resentment over the Tully’s not staying loyal to the Targaryens.
Though Osfred has basked in his share of the glory, scandal has recently returned to House Redrill. It is said that he favors a bastard to succeed his seat over his true born heir. This story has yet to be played out.
