House Baelish of the Fingers is a noble house from the Vale. The seat of House Baelish is an unnamed, old flint tower which commands no more than a few stony acres on the smallest of the Fingers. House Baelish's smallfolk consists of a village of a dozen families in huts of piled stone beside a peat bog.[1][2]

The current lord, Petyr Baelish, is only the second generation of the landed family. His grandfather had been a landless hedge knight and his father the smallest of lords.[3]

History

The house began with Petyr's great-grandfather, who was born in Braavos and came to the Vale as a sellsword employed by House Corbray. His son took the head of the Titan as his sigil when he was knighted. His arms were a grey stone head with fiery eyes on a light green field.[2]

Ten years before the beginning of the War of the Five Kings, Petyr was brought to King's Landing by Lord Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King. Within three years he was on the small council of King Robert Baratheon.
