The man known as the Burning Knight was a huge brute of a man who gained fame during the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons. His real name is not known; he was also most likely not an actual knight.[1]

History

During the Storming of the Dragonpit it is written that the Burning Knight slew the dragon Morghul. The Burning Knight, encased in heavy armor, rushed headlong into the dragonflame with spear in hand, thrusting the point into the dragon's eye repeatedly, even as the flames melted the steel he was encased in and burning his flesh.[1][2]

Since his real name was not known, the man became known as the Burning Knight when the tale spread.[1]
