Lord Galbart Grafton is the current head of House Grafton and Lord of Gulltown. He inherited these titles from his father, Lord Jon Grafton, who passed away in 167 AC.

Galbart is the uncle of the Warden of the East, Artys Arryn, and the father-in-law of the current Lord of Runestone, Robar Royce.

At the turn of 201 AC, Lord Artys Arryn saw fit to bestow the title Grand Admiral of the Vale upon Galbart.

Appearance Edit

Galbart is a bulky man, a once overly muscled body now turning toward fat with his advancing years. Light grey hair covers his head, and forms a thick moustache and beard too, and the colour matches that of his right eye. His left eye is almost completely white and pupil-less at a glance, with a deep scar running down that side of his face. His right hand is a mess, missing most of his index and middle finger as well as some of his thumb and third finger - the hand is heavily scarred and almost completely useless for traditional functions.
