The 'A Song of Ice and Fire' MUSH


Ammon Massey


In Brief

Ammon was born in 136 AL, the third surviving son of Lord Allard Massey of Stonedance. He was a big, strong youth and took easily to the martial arts: except for horses; Ammon had a fear of the beasts as a boy and never developed into an exceptional rider.

If Ammon took easily to fighting, he took to music even easier. Raised on tales of valor and heroism, Ammon delighted in sharing these stories with his family: his youngest sister, Doryssa, in particular.

But over the years, something changed. Ammon served three men as squire: his uncle, Ser Tymos Rogers; Ser Danwell Ryger; and Ser Dagur Saltcliffe, the Iron Serpent. During those years, Ammon refused knighthood three times.

And when he finally took up his spurs, it was over the decaying corpse of his favorite sister.

Memorable Quotes

Speaking with his father after Doryssa’s death: “I expect I will make you proud of me soon enough, father—the Stranger seems intent on bringing Saan and I together. Once more will tell, I should think, one way or the other. And if there is some poetry in you, and you find it stirring as you stand over my bones, I would ask you to do me one small kindness: Say nothing.
