Joi Bael (nee Manning)
Joi Manning was wedded to Kurtis in order to create a bond between the North and a minor house in the Crownlands that surround King’s Landing.
Joi was not too impressed with the North at first but over time she came to tolerate the harsh environs of Blood Mountain. Joi still longs to be closer to King’s Landing and takes up any invitation to visit her former home and old friends.
She has borne two children and is fiercely protective of both ever since Mia Bael was kidnapped by raiders during the Greyjoy rebellion. Joi is now close to Aemon Snow after he returned Mia from her foreign adventure.
