To back up a bit to before he becomes the Lord of Riverrun- Hoster Tully married Lady Minisa Whent of Harrenhal while his father ruled The Riverlands, before The War of the Ninepenny Kings. Together, Hoster and his wife Minisa had three children, though there were three more that did not survive past infancy. The timing isn't very clear as to if Catelyn was born before the death of her two brothers, though it seems unlikely she was. It is clear that Lady Minisa bore Hoster two sons that did not survive and therefore Hoster came to regard Catelyn as his heir. Another daughter followed Catelyn- Lysa, and finally a son- Edmure. Lady Minisa bore another son after Edmure, but Minisa did not survive that childbirth and the son died along with her. As reflected upon by Catelyn in her POV, Hoster Tully truly loved his wife and was deeply scarred and saddened by her death, missing her and just as sad decades later.

The piece depicts a younger Catelyn, with her sister Lyssa by her side, and their constant companion in their youth, Petyr Baelish. Petyr was raised alongside the sisters and Edmure, their younger brother, having been brought to Riverrun to ward. Ms. Cecilia does a fantastic job bringing to life the famous auburn hair of the Tullys, as well as the slender, sharp features of a little Littlefinger.
