|Book(s)||The Sworn Sword (appears)|
After Ser Duncan the Tall fought Ser Lucas the Longinch in a trial by battle, Maester Cerrick treated his wounds. Though Dunk had drowned in the river where they fought, Cerrick's ironborn origins and his studies of the methods of the drowned men allowed him to bring Dunk back from the brink of death. While Duncan was recovering but still unconscious, his squire Egg forced Cerrick to first taste anything he gave to the knight.
