Villain Overview

You are almost a man grown now, and my heir. You have given me no cause to disown you, but neither will I allow you to inherit the land and title that should be Dickon's. Heartsbane must go to a man strong enough to wield her, and you are not worthy to touch her hilt. So I have decided that you shall this day announce that you wish to take the black. You will forsake all claim to your brother's inheritance and start north before evenfall. If you do not, then on the morrow we shall have a hunt, and somewhere in these woods your horse will stumble, and you will be thrown to the saddle to die...or so I will tell your mother. She has a woman's heart and finds it in her to cherish you, and I have no wish to cause her pain. Please do not imagine that it will truly be that easy, should you think to defy me. Nothing would please me more than to hunt you down like the pig you are. So. There is your choice. The Night's Watch... [rips out a deer's heart.] Or this.
~ Randyll Tarly to his son Samwell
The gods made men to fight, and women to bear children. A woman's war is in the birthing bed.
~ Randyll to Brienne of Tarth

Lord Randyll Tarly is a character from A Song of Ice and Fire and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

He is the Lord of Horn Hill and head of House Tarly, a vassal house of House Tyrell from the Reach. He's married to Lady Melessa Florent and has five children: Samwell, Talla, two other girls, and Dickon. In battle he wields the Tarly ancestral blade Heartsbane, a Valyrian steel greatsword. Marcher lords of the Dornish Marches, the Tarlys are a family old in honor with rich lands and a strong keep.

He was portrayed by James Faulkner.

Personality

Tarly is the real danger. A narrow man, but iron-willed and shrewd, and as good a soldier as the Reach could boast.
~ Kevan Lannister's thoughts about Tarly
Randyll Tarly is the finest soldier in the realm. A poor Hand for peacetime, but with Tywin dead there's no better man to finish this war.
~ Kevan Lannister, urging Cersei Lannister to have Randyll to replace Tywin

Randyll is a narrow man but iron willed, shrewd and capable, and is considered one of the finest battle commanders in Westeros. He is a proud, dour strict disciplinarian, obedient to his superiors and dutiful. He prizes courage and martial ability, which causes him to despise his eldest son, Samwell because of his cowardice and softness, and strongly favor his younger son, Dickon, who is much more fierce and robust.

His charecter is very similair to Tywin Lannister, both having sons who's in their eyes are an disgrace to the family legacy and both fathers are willing to do anything to get rid of them. Randyll is using what ever means necessery to achcive his goals, without neither compassion or conscience for his family. Both are also respected as fine soldiers.

After Tywin's death, Keven Lannister suggests that Randyll might be a suitable replacement as Hand of the King to finish the War of the Five Kings, as he has strong will and good tactic skills in war, thought he would be a poor Hand during peace.
