Gormon Peake, called Gormy, was Lord of Starpike and head of House Peake during the Blackfyre Rebellions.

Appearance

Gormon was sour-mouthed, with a well-trimmed beard colored grey, black and white.[1]

History

Lord Gormon was a supporter of Daemon Blackfyre during the First Blackfyre Rebellion and was considered one of the greatest knights of his time.[2] He slew Lord Hayford and Roger of Pennytree at the Battle of the Redgrass Field.[2][1] After the rebellion, he bent the knee and was pardoned by King Daeron II Targaryen.

Years later, during the reign of King Aerys I Gormon was part of the entourage of Ser John the Fiddler, who were on their way to the Whitewalls Tourney when they encountered Ser Duncan the Tall.[1] During the tourney, Gormon plotted with Ser Tommard Heddle to make John the winner of the tourney and the dragon egg offered as the prize. Gormon did his best to keep John, actually Daemon II Blackfyre, who was obsessed with making his vivid dreams come to pass, from damaging his chances of winning the Iron Throne. When the egg went missing, he had a stone painted in the same fashion and framed Ser Glendon Flowers for the theft. His plot to place Daemon II on the throne was foiled when the Hand of the King, Lord Bloodraven, who knew of the plot from the beginning, surrounded the castle and eventually captured Daemon. Lord Gormon lost his head when Whitewalls fell.[1]
