    Theon is the youngest son of Lord Balon Greyjoy and Lady Alannys Harlaw and heir to House Greyjoy in the Iron Islands. After his father's failed attempt of rebelion, he was taken as hostage by the forces of the Iron Throne and placed under Eddard Stark's care as his ward and squire to keep Balon in line from rebelling ever again. He has two older brothers ("Maron" and "Rodrik" in the books), both slain, and an older sister, Yara (Asha in the TV series). He is described as lean, dark and handsome youth of 19 years at the start of the series.
