Daven is the oldest child of Lord Rollum Kenning and Lady Joanna Lannister of Lannisport. At age eight he was sent to Casterly Rock where he was fostered. On his thirteenth nameday he became a squire of Ser Jaime Foote, a knight sworn to Lord Loren Lannister. Sometime after his fifteenth nameday he met Damon Lannister who had returned from being fostered on Pyke, and the boys became life long friends. Daven was knighted at age nineteen by Ser Jaime as he lay on his deathbed.

Under Daven's command they became an elite force whose ability was well known across the Westerlands. At age twenty-three Daven became Captain of the City Watch where he remained until his father's death four years later.
