In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Tion Lannister was the second-born son of Lord Gerold Lannister, "the Golden", and his second wife Lady Rohanne Webber. He was the squire for Prince Aegon Targaryen (who later became King Aegon V) during the Peake Uprising in 233 AC and became the heir to Casterly Rock when his brother Tywald was killed in that conflict.

Tion was betrothed to a daughter of House Rowan, though following Tywald's death he was seduced by his late brother's betrothed, Lady Ellyn Reyne. She convinced him to marry her instead, and though Lord Gerold opposed the match, he allowed the betrothal to take place since Tywald had asked Tion to "take care of Lady Ellyn" with his dying words. They married at Casterly Rock in 235 AC, with his younger brother Tytos marrying Jeyne Marbrand in the same ceremony.

The Fourth Blackfyre Rebellion began in 236 AC, and though it was short lived and casualties were small, Tion was among the dead. Following his death, Ellyn lost a significant amount of power and influence. In an attempt to maintain it, she falsely claimed to be pregnant with Tion's child, which was exposed as a lie as months passed and her body showed no signs of pregnancy.
