Sandor Plissken Posted April 12, 2015 Share Posted April 12, 2015 There may be quite a number of reasons, and I am probably going to miss a few. Someone had to do the dirty job - err, lead the expedition. Loras Tyrell seemed to be out for vengeance and also overly foolish - Eddard wanted justice delivered, not vengeance. So: not Loras. Beric is a Stormlander, a foreigner to the riverlands and hopefully impartial in all other riverlands affairs the party might get involved with. He is affiliated through his squire Edric with the Dayne family, to which Eddard already has had a few relations and ties. Plot reasons ;-) ... Thank you. 3 and 4 are very interesting. I was wondering: what about Balon Swann, or some Royce (there were a couple of them, if I recall correctly)? Why not them? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
