Description

Aegon is a Tagaryen through and through, shirking his mother's genetics for the known white hair and violet eyes of his father's line. In his youth his features are handsome, considered more than attractive with his high cheekbones and sculpted chin. His brow is not hard but pronounced, giving a stark appearance to his brows that rest over narrow piercing eyes. His lips are full and set more often then not in a sulky curve.

He's a young man, built of broad shoulders and long legs. He stands tall at just over six feet, cutting a rather impressive figure. The way he carries himself is of casual understanding of who he is and letting it spill over into the affectations he exudes.

The colors of house Targaryen imbue nearly every single piece of clothing. In a black sleeved tunic and fitted black trousers, they are a simple backdrop to the rich velvets of red and gold that make up his sleeveless over tunic that crosses over at an angle further to the right. Double buttoned with gold dragons adorning each the gold is reflected in the buckles of his black boots. A double layered sword belt of black is stamped in dragons and it is where his sword rests on his left hip.

Aegon II is the eldest of Viserys I Targaryen's boys that survived. He was born in 107 A.C. and married his little sister, Haelena Targaryen who was born in 109 A.C. when they came of age. In 123 they were thrilled by the arrival of their fraternal twins, Jaehaerys II and Jaehaera.

Aegon is a Dragon Rider and his male golden dragon's name is Sunfyre the Golden.


Aegon’s father, King Viserys I Targaryen, had three children by his first wife, Queen Aemma Arryn. Two were sons who died in infancy. Only Princess Rhaenyra survived to adulthood. Lacking a son to succeed him, Viserys had started to groom Rhaenyra to be his heir. He taught her how to rule and made her part of his small council. In 105 AC, shortly after the death of Aemma and her son, hundreds of lords and landed knights had done obeisance to the princess and sworn solemn oaths to defend her rights.

A year later, in 106 AC, King Viserys married again, this time to Lady Alicent Hightower, who bore him three sons: Aegon, Aemond, and Daeron. Alicent also birthed Viserys a daughter, Helaena. Despite now having three sons, however, Rhaenyra remained King Viserys's heir, a decision he left in his will.

Aegon's mother, Queen Alicent, did not agree with her husbands' decision to name Rhaenyra heir to the throne over Aegon. When attempts to persuade him to do otherwise failed, Alicent attempted to convince her husband to have Rhaenyra and Aegon marry. Viserys did not agree. The two siblings were ten years apart in age and had never gotten along. King Viserys knew that Alicent only proposed the match to get Aegon on the throne, and thus married Rhaenyra to Ser Laenor Velaryon instead.

Queen Alicent and Princess Rhaenyra did not get along either, and the enmity between the two women was passed on to their children: Aegon and his brothers, Aemond and Daeron, did not get along with their Velaryon nephews, and resented the three boys for having stolen their "birthright", the Iron Throne itself. Prince Aegon was convinced that Rhaenyra's three Velaryon sons were fathered by Ser Harwin Strong, and stated such to his younger brother Aemond. King Viserys I forcing Aegon and his siblings to be close to Rhaenyra's sons (attending the same feasts, balls, and revels, and having them train together in the yard, and study together) only caused their mutual dislike to grow.

It is unknown when Prince Aegon became a dragonrider, but by the time he was thirteen years old at least, Aegon had successfully bonded with Sunfyre.

In 122 AC, Prince Aegon married his sister, Princess Helaena Targaryen, in King's Landing. Their first children, the twins Jaehaerys and Jaehaera, were born a year later, as were Aegon's first two bastards, one boy he had fathered on a girl on the Street of Silk, and one girl he had fathered on one of his mother's servants.

Despite the various attempts of King Viserys to get Aegon, his siblings, and their Velaryon nephews on friendlier terms, Aegon remained resentful of Rhaenyra's children.

Relationships

Mother

Mother is a force to be reckoned with and Aegon never wishes to have to. She is the power behind the Greens movement. After all, the political party's name: The Greens was based on the color dress his mother was wearing at the tourney when the feud genuinely began.

King Viserys I Targaryen

King Viserys I Targaryen

Father

Father is a great King, he is generous and the people love him. Aegon loves him too. It is one reason why he's a bit apathetic about the struggle for the crown between the Greens and the Blacks. His father made a decision, Aegon knows he'd want his subjects to respect his decisions if he was king. If only Rhaenyra wasn't such a loathsome bint he might wholly support her.

Princess Helaena Targaryen

Princess Helaena Targaryen

Sister-Wife

Helaena is the perfect wife, she loves him, respects him, obeys him and loves their children more than anything. She also understands that Aegon has appetites that she alone cannot sate and is almost supportive of his polyamory. So long as she is never neglected of feels like she comes after any of his paramours.

Jaehaerys is larger and healthier than his twin, but he was also born with six fingers on his left hand, and six toes on each foot. The fact that Jaehaerys is not his first child (nor son) is a tightly kept secret. (Technically Jaeharys is his second child, the second son, after the bastard Aegron Waters.)

Jaehaera Targaryen

Daughter

Bastard Son

Aegon has a few favorite girls on Silk Road, a Summer Isles beauty gave him a son in 123. He was born before the twins were. Aegon had celebrated with his mother in the days before the wedding. (Technically Aegron is Aegon's first child and his first son.) ((Played By: Tayden Burrell))

Roleplaying Hooks & Quirks

  • Green Prince: In the conflict of the Dance of the Dragons it is Aegon II that is the heir to the Iron Throne the political party known as The Greens want to see crowned. He is rather ambivalent and apathetic to the whole thing. He rather likes his lifestyle, not having the responsibilities of a king wouldn't be so bad. But he does loath Rhaenyra and her bastards and his mother is quite insistent. Who knows?
  • Focused: Otherwise known as lazy. If it's not food or sex, or something that benefits him, he really can't be bothered. Besides what good is being a Prince if you don't have your servants do those things for you?
  • Foodie: Aegon loves the fine things in life and food is a pleasure he pursues second to sexual exploits. The Red Keep's kitchen team is often tasked with providing the prince with a new delicacy that will start a trend in the culinary world.
  • Promiscuous: It's good to be the Prince.
