Ser Illifer the Penniless

Gold and ermine gyronny

General Information

Ser Illifer the Penniless is a hedge knight of sixty or more years. He is seeing travelling in the company of Ser Creighton Longbough. Ser Illifer’s great-great-grandfather seems to have been involved in the bringing to justice of the last member of House Lothston of Harrenhal, as they were notorious for madness and evil crimes.


Brienne of Tarth comes across Ser Illifer and Ser Creighton on the road to Duskendale. Brienne deems them both decent men but leaves them at an inn, where they are last seen escorting a merchant met by chance on the road.
