General Information

Ser Duncan the Tall hailed from Flea Bottom, an orphan taken to squire by Ser Arlan of Pennytree following the death of Ser Arlan’s nephew Roger at the Battle of the Redgrass Field in 196. Ser Arlan died of a fever and Duncan claimed that he was knighted before the end. Ser Duncan took on his own squire and went to Ashford where he was allowed to enter the tourney there after the heir and Hand of Daeron II, Baelor Targaryen, vouched for him.
