"Father says I have to marry Symun Fossoway! He has yellow teeth and..."
―Talla Tarly to Samwell Tarly[src]

Lady Talla Tarly is the only daughter of late Lord Randyll Tarly of Horn Hill and the middle child between Samwell and Dickon Tarly.

Biography

Background

Talla was born at Horn Hill to Randyll and Melessa Tarly. She is the sister of Samwell and Dickon.

Season 6

Talla's brother Sam is en route to the Citadel to study about the White Walkers. Since the Citadel does not accept women and children, he plans to send Gilly and her baby Sam to live with his family at Horn Hill. While he does not get on with his father Randyll, he gets on with Talla and their mother Melessa.[1]

Talla eagerly greets Sam as he arrives with Gilly and her baby, complaining about her arranged marriage to the old, yellow-toothed Symun Fossoway. Talla takes Gilly under her wing and starts musing on what color she would look best in. She also offers to put Gilly up in one of her bedrooms.

Talla and her family have dinner with Gilly.

At dinner, Talla makes small talk with Gilly, and is impressed that Gilly can hunt for herself, as Randyll never saw the need for her to learn. She later sits uncomfortably as Randyll insults Sam repeatedly. When Randyll realizes that Gilly is a wildling, Melessa listens to his rant before giving him a piece of her mind, then storming out with Gilly and Talla in tow.[2]

Season 7

With the deaths of her father and Dickon in the aftermath of the Battle of the Goldroad,[3] and with Sam unable to inherit as both a man of the Night's Watch and a Maester-in-training, Talla becomes the Lady of Horn Hill and head of House Tarly.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Talla has been briefly mentioned as Sam's sister but otherwise not described in detail and has not yet appeared. She has not been betrothed to anyone.

Randyll Tarly has five children: his eldest child Samwell, then three daughters, and finally his second son Dickon. After he became dissatisfied with the bookish Samwell as a child, he kept having more children with his wife, until they produced another son to replace him. Talla is the eldest of Samwell's three sisters (the other two haven't been named).
