Lady Helicent Uffering was a member of House Uffering and was the sister to Ser Rolland Uffering.[2]

Appearance and Character

Helicent was stout and square with a pointed head that her hair did not conceal. Her nose was big and her mouth small. She was a pious and simple woman.[2]

History

Lady Helicent was one of the courtiers at Coldmoat during the reign of Aerys I Targaryen. She came to Coldmoat with her brother, Ser Rolland Uffering, who was the fourth husband of Lady Rohanne Webber. Ser Lucas Inchfield introduced Helicent as Rohanne in order to embarrass Ser Duncan the Tall. She did not understand Duncan's meaning when he asked her about the dam on the Chequy Water, and was frightened when one of the other courtiers shouted that Duncan wanted to sleep with her.[2]

Quotes by Helicent

Duncan: Ser Eustace bid me talk with you concerning the recent trouble at your dam.
Helicent: The... dam, you say?
Duncan: The stream, the Chequy Water. Your ladyship built a dam across it...
Helicent: Oh, I am quite sure I haven't. Why, I have been at my devotions all morning, ser.[2]

Quotes about Helicent

Do not think ill of Lady Helicent, I pray you. My good-sister is a simple creature, but she has no harm in her. For all her piety, she could not dress herself without her septas.[2]
