Biography

Background

Shireen is the daughter of Stannis Baratheon and Selyse Florent, and her older stillborn siblings are Petyr, Tommard and Edric Baratheon. Shireen is Stannis' only living daughter because her siblings are stillborn. Her father is the head of House Baratheon of Dragonstone and has declerated King of the Iron Throne, and her mother is one of the daughters of Ser Ryam Florent, a knight of House Florent, younger brother of Lord Alester Florent, the Lord of Brightwater Keep and the head of House Florent.

Across the left side of her face she has scarred by Greyscale that she received during early childhood. Although this is usually considered a fatal disease, Stannis Baratheon called on all healers he knew to help her, and through a combination of efforts they were able to cure her.

Selyse Florent dismisses Shireen as sinful and stubborn and resents her for having a male child, she gave birth to a stillbirth, and when it came to being a sickly little girl, she successfully gave birth to her. Shireen, on the other hand, avoids her mother because she is frightened by her fanatical devotion to the Lord of Light. Shireen loves her father deeply, and he loves her too, she is also close to Lord Davos Seaworth to whom she is like his own daughter.

Season 3

She shows up at Dragonstone and helps Lord Davos Seaworth learn to read while he's in prison. That's when he reveals for the first time that he has a twisted relationship with his mother.

Season 4

Selyse accuses Shireen of being sinful and naughty, but Stannis disapproves of that by saying she's just a child. She helps Davos write a letter to the Iron Bank and go with his mother and his father to the Wall.

Season 5

She spends time on the Wall teaching Gilly to read, then goes on a quest with her father to Winterfell. Red Priesthood Melisandre persuades Stannis to burn his daughter at the stake, which he does. Although she did not love her in her lifetime, her mother hangs herself afterwards.

Personality

She is very benign and good, always ready to help others no matter what conditions they may be.
