In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Lord Damon is a renowned tourney knight, even when ruling as Lord of Casterly Rock. He died during the Great Spring Sickness, an epidemic that swept the Seven Kingdoms during the reign of King Daeron II Targaryen. He was succeeded by his son Tybolt Lannister. Tybolt did not rule long and died leaving his infant daughter Cerelle Lannister to succeed him - but soon she also died, leaving her uncle Gerold Lannister to become the head of House Lannister.  It was rumored that Gerold killed Cerelle and possibly also his brother Tybolt in order to become Lord. Gerold had four sons: Tywald, Tion, Tytos, and Jason. Tywald and Tion both died in battle in two separate conflicts leaving Tytos to succeed his father. This makes Damon the great-grandfather to Tywin Lannister and the great-great-grandfather to Tyrion, Jaime, and Cersei Lannister
