And now, for important Maesters not in the Vale…

  • Maester Gerrick: A long-serving Maester of Oldstown, he was the mentor to Meera, and helped her get assigned to the Slagathors when Meera’s mother was sick.

  • Maester Tarwyn: a close friend of Meera assigned to a Lord in the Riverlands currently. Close while students at Oldtown, told Tywina all about Meera, indicating he is still fond of her.
