But since the books always trump everything else, I guess you're right that it should be corrected. Perhaps the three candles came from an earlier draft of the sigil.. the Citadel also states that no member of the House has yet appeared, yet we see Ser Edmund in Feast. So possibly, this sigil was changed between the original notes and the publication of Feast. 2 hours ago, direpupy said: Well there seems to a Knight of Wickenden which is Ser Edmund Waxley, but there is also a Lord Waxley mentioned so there might actually be two branches. but i to could only find 1 reference and that's to six, im guessing its the same as you found. That there might be two branches (knightly and lordly) is indeed possible. However, the six candles refer to Ser Edmund, right? And he is the Knight of Wickenden. So the sigil for House Waxley of Wickenden should indeed contain six candles, not three. 14 hours ago, Morgiou said: I'm hoping this is a good topic to post this in. (I'm pretty sure this is my first foray into the forums, and I didn't see a search function anywhere.) By chance, I happened to notice that while the Wiki article on House Waxley says the Waxley sigil features three candles, the only reference I could find to it in currently available Song of Ice and Fire books and preview chapters says six candles. See: http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Talk:House_Waxley Unless there's something to the contrary in other canon materials (which I don't have), House Waxley's Wiki article should probably be corrected, including the blason. (I'm an ignorant and inartistic hack when it comes to graphics, so I'm not the guy.) I'm no hero in Photoshop either, but it should be a relatively simple matter of copying and repositioning he candles, right? Does the license of the image allow for us to alter it?
