From "Game Of Thrones Wiki":
Renly Baratheon is a recurring character in Game of Thrones. He is played by guest star Gethin Anthony and debuts in the third episode of the first season. Renly is a younger son of House Baratheon, who is the Lord of Storm's End and has served on the small council as Master of Laws. Following the death of his oldest brother King Robert Baratheon, Renly claims the Iron Throne for himself, contesting the claims of his nephew Joffrey Baratheon and his older brother Stannis Baratheon.
For his personal sigil, Renly has altered the original color scheme of the Baratheon sigil. Instead of the black crowned stag on a yellow field, Renly's banner displays a golden crowned stag a a field of green, a nod to the color scheme of his main supporters, House Tyrell.
Renly is the son of Steffon Baratheon. Steffon was the Head of House Baratheon and Lord of Storm's End. Renly has two older brothers Robert and Stannis. Steffon died when the boys were young and Robert inherited his titles. Robert led a rebellion against King Aerys II Targaryen, deposing and replacing him as the King on the Iron Throne. He made Renly the Lord of Storm's End following his victory. Renly serves Robert as Master of Laws on the King's small council in King's Landing. He is fourth in line to the throne, behind his nephews Joffrey and Tommen and his older brother Stannis.
