Lord Barristan Wylde is a member of House Wylde and the current lord of the Rain House in the Stormlands.
Second born son of Lord Quentyn Wylde and his wife Tyana Bolling. He served as a squire and knight for a brief time under his father, before asking to leave for the Citadel and study to become a maester, as he was more inclined to pick up books than a sword and shield, and felt his two brothers, the elder Criston and the younger Armond, were warriors enough for their house.
He studied only a year before he was called back to Rain House after the death of his elder brother, Criston, who died of redspots contracted as an adult. Now his father's heir, he set aside his single yellow gold link and married Jocelyn Errol of Haystack Hall.
With his wife they would have two sons and four daughters.
