Game Of Thrones
Lord Aldwyn Blackburn
Lord of Blackstone in Driftmark
With valyrian blood, he has blond (nearly white) short hair with purple eyes.
Honorable and arrogant.
His aim is justice, his virtue is loyalty, he is motivated by duty and his vice is cruelty.
His sword named Downfall made with valyrian steel was brought from the
Valyrian Freehold by his ancestors.
Aldwyn was born during the reign of Aerys II Targaryen, the Mad King. As
the heir of the House Blackburn, he was educated in war by his father Wilham Blackburn
and the Blackstone’s Master-at-Arms Godric Kent.
House Velaryon and House Blackburn have always had a good relationship because
the two houses went to Dragonstone from the Valyrian FreeHold when Aegon The Conqueror
gave them some lands to build both castles. In that way, Montford Velaryon and Wilham
Blackburn were good friends and had an important relevance into Targaryen ‘s Court. They
worked on behalf of Dragonstone ’s Prince when he weren’t in the islands.
Wilham Blackburn was killed when the islands were taken by Stanis Baratheon
at the end of Robert’s Rebellion and Aldwyn become the Lord of Blackstone - which was
reduced to ruines - at the age of fifteen. So he was forced to yield his army to survive when
Velaryon kneel down to the rebels.
Aldwyn received his knighthood, at seventeen, from Montford Velaryon when
he showed his ability as a military leader saving Sharp Point and Stone Dance from the
attack of a pirate lysene fleet. The pirate captain Tarek Saan was arrested and locked up into
the Blackstone’s dungeon for one year. The screams of Tarek were heard through the castle
walls ever since, until he died.
After the heroic deed, the old alliances with House Warmingsun were renewed with the
marriage between Lord Blackburn and Ella Warmingsun. Their first son was named
William in honour of Wilham Blackburn. They also had two children: Bella and Hadrian.
Although Montford Velaryon tried to take care of Aldwyn after his father’s dead, the
new lord of Blackstone blamed him for leaving Wilham alone against the enemy which caused
the fall of the House Blackburn. Nowadays, their relation is cooler than ever and Aldwyn
Blackburn is determined to give Velaryon what he deserves.
