When he arrived in Braavos he discovered a city in turmoil and he and his forces had difficulty getting out of the dock. While they spent weeks stuck in diplomacy trying to get out of the docks he was forced to lead men when their forces were stuck in the middle of two battling forces of Braavos. When the dust settled they were basically under siege as the city was burning from all the infighting and he was being advised to leave the city and his sister, but he refused to leave. After a two week siege of the docks he led the forces of House Starke well during the two weeks and finally broke the Unsullied attacking his forces. As they licked their wounds his sister arrived and they would return to Lucerne despite her insistence that her time in Lucerne was nearing an end. Brann Starke returning home found himself the regent of Stormwind once again as he returned the oldest of the children and thus was forced to lead once again.

History

Early History

Brann Starke

Brann Starke was extremely skilled at most things he tried to do, but silently he felt Magi pulling him towards it.

"My position in the houshold was one where a lot was placed on my back because right behind Robb was me. If anything happened to my brother it would be me that was responsible for carrying on the leadership of the house."
-Bran Starke

Bran is the second son and fourth child of Lady Catelyn and Lord Eddard Stark, head of House Stark and Warden of the North. He was born and raised at Winterfell, during the warm height of summer away from the bustling hieghts of Stormwind. He is named after his uncle, Eddard's elder brother Brandon as a sign of respect between the two siblings. Bran as a young boy was always close to his older siblings, and held a role of responsibility over his younger brother Rickon as well. As he got older he begin to feel himself capable of certain Magi abilities which he thought were just funny dreams but in fact he was appearing through the eyes of wild animals.

Direwolves

Starke's execution
"It was a moment of clarity for the group of us. It would be the last moment for a long time that all the Starke boys were together and in this way I always remember it fondly even if I also remember what I was forced to do."
-Eddard Starke

Bran is among a group of twenty men who witness Eddard dispense the king's justice to a deserter of the Starke Honor Guard, the first time Bran is allowed to accompany such a group. Lord Eddard questions the man briefly, and then Theon gives Eddard his Valyrian steel sword Ice. Jon Bran's bastard brother tells him to watch and not look away, and Bran watches as his father strikes off the man's head. The head lands by Theon, who laughs and kicks it away. Jon calls Theon an ass and compliments Bran on his poise during the execution. On the way back to Stormwind, Robb and Jon argue about whether the deserter died bravely. They race their horses, and Eddard comes up to speak to Bran. He asks if Bran knows why he executed the man himself. He explains that the First Men, of whom the Starks are descendents, believe that the man who pronounces the verdict should do the execution himself, lest he become too comfortable in ordering deaths. The Starks still hold to that principle.

Direwolves
"The Direwolves changed our lives. Despite the fact that we didn't know it then everything after that would share a little of the moment that we decided to take them with us."
-Bran Starke

Jon calls from up ahead, for them to come see what he and Robb have found. They find a corpse of a direwolf, as large as Bran's pony, Theon comments that direwolves have not been seen south of the Wall for two hundred years. Given that the direwolf is the sigil of the family and there are as many pups as the Stark children (even an albino runt for Jon), they take the pups with them. Bran and each of the other Stark siblings receives one of the young animals as a pet, but over time these will prove to be far more then just pets. Robb names his Grey Wind and Bran names his Summer, whilst Eddard's daughters Sansa and Arya name theirs Lady and Nymeria respectively. Eddard's youngest, three-year-old Rickon, names his Shaggydog. Unexpectedly, Jon finds a sixth pup lying separately nearby: an albino runt with white fur and red eyes. Jon claims this one, Ghost, for himself.

Tommen Lannister

"He was my equal I suppose in a lot of ways. He was in terms of my family what my sister Sansa's children would be, and for that I thought all his talk of being the heir were quite funny."
-Bran Starke

During the royal visit to Winterfell, Bran fights Prince Tommen in the yard under the supervision of master-at-arms Ser Rodrik Cassel.
