General Information

House Mallister has always been of a certain repute and influence in the Riverlands, which has only grown in recent years. Presently, Seagard is ruled by Lord Joscelyn Mallister, who earned a certain chivalric repute in his youth by touring the Riverlands as a knight-errant named Ser Celyn, who famously unmasked himself at the 16th Nameday tourney of Belarra Bracken, starting a heartfelt romance and marriage between the two.

In the Conquest of Dorne, Lord Mallisters men learned of his discipline and fairness when he executed one of his own for raping one of Lady Fowlers maids in his time as castellan of Skyreach. Such is how he came to be known as Joscelyn the Just.

Seagard has known tragedy, too. The loss of Lord Mallisters son and heir, Jason, and then the death of Lady Belarra Mallister, was a devastating blow to the house, but the eagle of Seagard still flies high in recent years. The ascension of King Baelor has proven to be excellent for a lord who loves the Seven as much as Joscelyn, who came to Kings Landing with stone and timber for the rebuilding of Visenyas Sept, before departing to Sunspear to make amends with Dorne as part of King Baelors embassy.

From his years in service to the Iron Throne, Lord Joscelyn has become a famed servant to the crown, and even familial struggles seem to be long-gone as his young second wife, Erena of House Lydden, has given him three sons, as well as made matches for her step-daughters, giving the Mallisters ties to Oldtown and the west. At present, Lord and Lady Mallister continue to live in Sunspear with their sons and Lord Mallisters eldest daughter, while Lord Joscelyns brother Josmon serves as castellan of Seagard.
