Theon Greyjoy is the sole-surviving son and heir apparent of Lord Balon Greyjoy. At the end of the Greyjoy Rebellion, Theon was taken as a hostage and ward by Lord Eddard Stark. He was 10 years old at the time and, being raised with the Stark children, he formed a particularly close (some say brotherly) bond with Robb Stark, but he treated Jon Snow with disdain for being a Bastard.
Theon struggles with being the man he is, and the man he wants to be. He often seeks approval from the Starks, but usually feels unsatisfied.
