Little detail I caught re-reading the books

Recommended Posts


He bowed deeply and took a moment to glance around the hall. Lady Arryn had summoned her knights and retainers to hear his confession, as he had hoped. He saw Ser Brynden Tully’s craggy face and Lord Nestor Royce’s bluff one. Beside Nestor stood a younger man with fierce black side-whiskers who could only be his heir, Ser Albar. Most of the principal houses of the Vale were represented. Tyrion noted Ser Lyn Corbray, slender as a sword, Lord Hunter with his gouty legs, the widowed Lady Waynwood surrounded by her sons. Others sported sigils he did not know; broken lance, green viper, burning tower, winged chalice.

From "A game of thrones", Tyrion's chapter(s).

Seems that Ser Arlan of Pennytree, Dunk's mentor, was from the Vale.

There is a house in the Vale with a winged chalice sigil. House Hersy.

Pennytree is in the Riverlands. He might have been inspired by having seen the Hersy sigil, but I don't have reason to think he was lying about where he was from.
