A young prince of Dorne, Oberyn Martell is also a fierce fighter who earned the nickname the “Red Viper.” He spent time in the Citadel but quit his studies before earning a full set of links. Oberyn has not forgotten that Gregor Clegane, who was acting on behalf of the Lannisters, murdered his sister Elia during Robert’s Rebellion.
Doran Martell, the governing Prince of Dorne, suffers from gout and is confined to a wheelchair. A firm and diplomatic leader, Doran stayed largely neutral in the War of the Five Kings. He has continued that stance even after the death of his younger brother Oberyn in King's landing, refusingto support Ellaria Sand's demand for vengeance. His son Trystane is engaged to Myrcella Baratheon.
