Androw Manderly was the Lord of White Harbour, who inherited the position from his ailing cousin Wyman Manderly. His rule had been plagued with many issues.
A cousin to Lord Wyman Manderly, it was never dreamt that one day Androw would become the likely heir to White Harbour. His cousin (though rotund) had always had a good constitution. Nevertheless when he came of age he was pronounced heir to the Manderly Lands until such time as Wyman produced an heir.
Much to Androw’s chagrin, Wyman was a man of finery, taking pleasure in rich foods, fine wines, and exotic women. He invited many men from Essos to come serve in his castle, and even took the daughter of one of them to wife.
Disgusted by his cousin-in-law's corruption and indulgent personlity, Androw went on an extended hunt that soon came to be seen as a self-imposed exile more than anything else. For years he was not seen at White Harbour. In fact the only reports of him were from small towns dotting the Manderly lands, where he would show up now and then with a buck over his shoulders. He would stay a night or two in the town, buy some supplies and trim his beard, before disappearing into the wilds once more.
After his cousin's wife fathered a bastard Androw decided to return to White Harbour to save the Manderly name. It seemed that all would come to naught until suddenly Wyman took ill after a particularly lavish course of eel pies.
Reports of the woman’s affairs seemed only to grow after Wyman took ill, and it was not long until Androw came upon the needed evidence to cast out the Essosi staff. After coming upon the woman in bed with another man he was able to make his case to the Septons and courtiers, and she was summarily expelled. Androw took it a step further by expelling the entirety of the Essosi staff, for by now he harboured a deep hate of any Essosi for what he perceived as their gluttonous and corrupting influences.
Androw became regent of White Harbour after his cousin fell ill, he immediately began restricting Essosi access to the city before completely banning them from the Harbour.
After Wyman's death Androw took up the Lordship of White Harbour, immediately a conflict began to grow between himself and supporters of his cousin-in-law Lysa. Eventually Queen Danae and Lord Jojen Stark ordered the ports to be opened as it begun to hamper trade all across the North and the Seven Kingdoms.
He visited Winterfell and rekindled an old friendship with the widowed Lyanna Stark, which soon blossomed into a romance. They married in secret, but Lord Jojen Stark held the marriage as invalid. She was wed to Olyvar Bolton the following morning under the crown's orders. Androw left for White Harbor in anger.
Around this time, Androw was also betrothed to his cousin Lady Tanda Rykkers.
Androw Manderly learned of Lyanna's death in Dreadfort and grew reclusive from the rest of the North. He broke his betrothal with Lady Tanda and forced her into a Sept.
Androw ignored Winterfell's call to arms to deal with the threat of the King Beyond the Wall.
Ever the reclusive, Androw only came to rule White Harbor infrequently. Leaving the day-to-day tasks to his brother Cerrick. When word reached of Gareth Umber's death he briefly entertained the idea of offering a cousin to wed his widow and send aid to the Last Hearth.
After the Sunderland's Rebellion Lord Nathaniel Arryn was gravely injured, leading Theon Arryn to quickly sail to White Harbor for aid. For the love he held for his mother, Androw was glad to help the young lord paramount and his uncle. He also planned on using Theon to help deal with Jojen Stark, who arrived in White Harbor to question Androw on why he refused his liege lord's summons (the penalty of refusal sometimes being death).
Initially Androw intended for Jojen to remain outside the city walls, but his uncle Omer invited the Stark host in. As a result, he was forced to confront Jojen at the castle steps but refused to invite him in New Castle or cooperate with him. Frustrated, Lord Stark then ordered Androw's arrest for openly defying him. What followed was a fight between two sides, with Androw's overwhelming forces slowly gaining the upper hand until the Stark direwolf arrived to turn the tide.
Androw was captured and after New Castle yielded he was executed for treason despite Theon Arryn's pleas.
