History

House Mallister aided Aegon the Conquerer during his War of Conquest and rebelled against King Harren the Black of Harrenhal.[6]

Lord Lymond Mallister unhorsed Ser Criston Cole at the tourney at Maidenpool to celebrate the accession of King Viserys I.[7]

Ser Joseth Mallister jousted in the Ashford Tourney. He was left unconscious in one of the first tilts.[8]

Prince Rhaegar Targaryen unhorsed Lord Jason Mallister in a tourney at Storm's End.

Jeffory Mallister was one of the companions of Brandon Stark that were accused of treason and executed by order of King Aerys II Targaryen.

During Robert's Rebellion, Lord Jason attended the wedding between Catelyn Tully and Eddard Stark; his gifts were lavish. At the Battle of the Trident, he slew three lords sworn to Dragonstone.

During the Greyjoy Rebellion, Lord Jason slew Rodrik Greyjoy beneath the walls of Seagard. He took part in the Tourney at Lannisport following the rebellion, but he was defeated by the eventual victor, Lord Jorah Mormont.
