House Codd is a noble house from the Iron Islands. Their motto is "Though All Men Do Despise Us." Their sigil depicts a silver codfish.
The Codds are not a well-regarded house among the ironborn. Descended from thralls and salt wives,their men are thought to be thieves and cowards and their women "wantons" who practice incest with their fathers and brothers.
A Feast for Crows

The Codds attend the kingsmoot, though they are generally looked upon with disdain by decent men, according to Victarion Greyjoy. Lucas is listed as one of Euron's supporters at the kingsmoot. Eldred Codd plays the finger dance with Qarl the Maid and loses during the kingsmoot.
Lucas is among those feasting in the hall of Lord Hewett's castle after the Battle of the Shield Islands. He wears a tapestry he tore from the wall. After the feast he rapes one of Lord Humfrey Hewett's daughters.
