Theon Greyjoy: "A ship? She gets thirty and I get one?"

Yara Greyjoy to Theon Greyjoy[src]

The Sea Bitch is a longship of the Iron Fleet.



The Sea Bitch is assigned to Theon Greyjoy for raiding along the Stony Shore.[1]

Season 2

The crew of about 20 men are led by Theon in the surprise seizure of Winterfell.[2]


In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the Sea Bitch is a ship built in Lordsport by Sigrin the Shipwright. It does not belong to the Iron Fleet. The ship isn't given to Theon as a slight against him and is not the only ship he commands. The crew assembled by Theon is composed by:

  • Rymolf Stormdrunk, a steersman in the crew of Victarion Greyjoy
  • Urzen
  • Maron Botley, called Old Botley and Fishwhiskers
    • His sons
  • Stygg
  • Gevin Harlaw
  • Cadwyl

In the books, Asha (Yara) actually just disparagingly calls Theon's new ship "a sea bitch", and Theon impudently declares that she just picked a great name, so Theon himself chooses to name it "Sea Bitch". In the TV version Yara mockingly assigns Theon a ship already named "Sea Bitch", making the joke at his expense instead of hers as in the book.
