House Darklyn of Duskendale

Fusily black and gold, 7 white escutcheons upon a red tierce

General Information

Duskendale is several days northeast of King’s Landing and lies near the coast. A proud house, the number of escutcheons on the arms refer to the number of sons of the house who have been members of the Kingsguard. Contrary to prior speculation here, Ser Donnel of Duskendale was _not_ a Darklyn.
