Sparking a Fight
Allard Seaworth would first meet Zooey Strong at the age of thirteen and as a young girl she was very close to Allard Seaworth of whom she secretly lost her virginity too at the age of fourteen, and in this relationship the two were extremely happy together and begin dreaming of marriage. This dream would be shattered when the emotionally unstable Deven Seaworth would discover their relationship when his brother Allard confided in him and wanting to spark the destruction of Kyle Strong and by extension House Strong he would reveal this to Robert Strong as well as lying and saying that Allard had extremely violent plans for Zooey Strong. Following Robert getting the letter revealing Deven's lies and half truths he would react violently and finding Allard he would spark a fight and then after beating up Allard nearly to death he threatened to finish the job if Allard did not leave her alone and afraid of Robert Strong he left briefly and their love affair ended for a time.

| The Siege of Harrenhall |
Burn the false goths in their homes. I don`t want a survivor to tell the story of how their city died. Leave none alive...From this point on I want only the memory of that city.
House Seaworth had been for much of their history the second or at the worst third strongest house in Harrenhall behind only House Strong, and at times House Gronn. This position was cherished by the leadership of House Seaworth for much of their history, and they were rewarded with control over the port of Harrenhall which was hugely important to the cities power. This power they had been given though for them always felt as if it was a slight as they secretly wanted total control, and this became an even more blatent belief under Davos Seaworth who was an honorable man but also a man that wanted more of everything he could get. At first Davos had despite his silent wishes remained loyal to House Strong and simply bided his time hoping that good things found their way to his house but as time went on his patience disapeared. In this lack of patience he would turn to his one loyal vassal in House Horpe and he would turn his forces completely against the House Strong loyalty of their history. The growing discontent of House Seaworth reached its pinacle and the basic end of the line, when they attempted to gain influence in the small House Jare, and when this was discovered Robert Strong had Halten Seaworth put in jail as punishment. With this imprisonment the leadership of House Seaworth came to the conclusion that House Strong were tyrants that they should take the mantle of power in Harrenhall from. They decided to do this by reopening the channels that had existed with the Iron Islands before they had cut ties with such rebellious thoughts.
In order to establish this alliance once again Davos Seaworth would send three of his sons in the form of Dale Seaworth, Maric Seaworth, and Allard Seaworth, alongside his sister Kateryn Seaworth in order to strike the deal while he himself stayed near the leadership of House Strong to make sure they were not catching on to his plotting.
As the plans came through and the Iron Islands agreed to finance and support the invasion in returrn for House Seaworth becoming the vassal of House Greyjoy. This vassal position would mean that they would become a member of the Iron Islands but at the same time be in complete control over Harrenhall. Obviously both sides did not intend to actually go through with this but either way the deal was struck and the Iron Islands prepared to send thousands of troops to Harrenhall in order to take control of the city. The Iron Fleet would arrive in the night and when Davos Seaworth saw the giant horizon covered with their ships he would in that moment come to truly understand what he had done, and would delay giving the command to start the ambush leading to an argument between himself and his sons of which other then Dale Seaworth worked to convinse Davos that this was the right thing to do. After minutes of argument Allard convinsed him to order his forces to lead the ambush leading to the massacre at the docks that would come about.
Fall of the Docks
Following the command of Davos Seaworth for his forces to execute the betrayal across the city the docks would become the first major source of the betrayal with his forces moving swiftly against positions of power at the docks. Allard Seaworth had been working tirelessly to bring Zooey Strong to his side of things and get her to suppport the Seaworth claim and in his twisted mind he came to believe that one of the main ways to do this was to eliminate that which she felt close to in House Strong in the form of her immediate family and most notably in her closest siblings in the form of Heather, and Kyle Strong. Allard would days before the Siege of Harrenhall happened create a situation where Kyle Strong was at the Lighthouse with a diminished garrison, while Heather Strong was tricked into believing that her betrothed in Dontis Peach was planning a suprise for her on the day of the siege and thus she was in a small dockhouse waiting for him when the siege was too begin.
