Ser Lyn Corbray is a knight from House Corbray. He is the heir of his elder brother, Lord Lyonel Corbray of Heart's Home.
Appearance and Character
Lyn is a thin man. He is handsome, but vain, reckless and hot-tempered. He has shoulder-length brown hair. Lyn is often short of money. It is said that Lyn is uninterested in women. According to Petyr Baelish, Lyn likes "boys".
Ser Lyn won his knighthood fighting for House Targaryen with Marq Grafton against Lord Jon Arryn at the gates of Gulltown during the opening sequences of Robert's Rebellion. He was pardoned and joined Lord Jon against the Targaryens.
At the Battle of the Trident, Ser Lyn's father Lord Corbray was badly wounded. In the confusion Lyn took up the family's Valyrian steel longsword, Lady Forlorn, and distinguished himself by leading an assault on the Dornish lines. He personally finished off a wounded Prince Lewyn Martell of the Kingsguard.
Honoring Lyn's achievements on the battlefield, his father bequeathed him Lady Forlorn upon his death. His elder brother Lyonel Corbray inherited the rest of the family estate and titles, but still resented the loss of the family blade.

Behind the Scenes
While it is mentioned that Lyn likes "boys", the age of these boys is unclear. As such, it is unclear if this is meant to imply that he is a pedophile. When asked about this, Elio Garcia agreed that the currently available information is too little to tell one way or the other, and agreed that "[Lyn being a pedophile is] an assumption without proof, so at least should be qualified".
