Appearance and Character
- See also: Images of Jason Mallister
Lord Jason is a renowned tourney knight, participating in several tourneys over the years. He was defeated in the tourney at Storm's End by Prince Rhaegar Targaryen and Ser Barristan Selmy. As a bannerman to House Tully, he attended the wedding of Catelyn Tully to Eddard Stark where his gifts were lavish.
During Robert's Rebellion, Jason fought bravely at the Battle of the Trident, avenging his brother Jeffory Mallister by slaying three of Rhaegar's bannermen and later, during Greyjoy's Rebellion, by slaying Rodrik Greyjoy beneath the walls of Seagard, throwing the ironmen reavers back into the sea.
After the conclusion of Greyjoy's Rebellion, King Robert I Baratheon ordered a tourney at Lannisport to celebrate his victory. There, Lord Jason was defeated by the eventual champion, Lord Jorah Mormont.
A Game of Thrones
Lord Jason travels to King's Landing and the Hand's tourney, accompanied by his son Patrek and a small party of knights and squires. They travel from Seagard by the way of the kingsroad and pass Catelyn Stark and Rodrik Cassel near the inn at the crossroads, but do not recognize them.
Lord Jason attends the Hand's tourney in King's Landing, where he defeats Aron Santagar in a joust. In the opening weeks of the War of the Five Kings, Ser Kevan Lannister identifies Lord Jason and House Mallister as one of the only standing threats to the Lannister campaign in the riverlands but Lord Tywin Lannister disregards him, believing Jason is not strong enough to fight alone. Once Robb Stark marches past the Twins, Lord Mallister adds his strength to Robb's and takes part in the battle in the Whispering Wood, during which he captures Lord Gawen Westerling.
The Mallister eagle is one of the banners spotted during the Battle of the Camps. After their victory, Jason sits at Robb's war council, where he suggests fortifying the riverlands and cutting off Tywin Lannister from supplies and fresh men.
A Clash of Kings
Lord Jason returns to Seagard after Robb Stark is proclaimed King in the North and of the Trident, accompanied by his son, Patrek Mallister, and Theon Greyjoy. When he thinks his son is growing too close to the young ironman, Jason reminds Patrek whom Seagard was built to protect against. As no ships from the Iron Islands await Theon on his arrival in Seagard, Jason Mallister believes the ravens Robb had sent from Riverrun to announce Theon's return had been lost and thus he sends his own birds.
A Storm of Swords
Jason meets King Robb at Hag's Mire on his march north to the Twins, bringing with him the captain of the Myraham, who brings news of Balon Greyjoy's death. Jason is ordered by Robb to send two Mallister longships into the Neck, one carrying Galbart Glover and the other Maege Mormont, to find Greywater Watch and inform Howland Reed of Robb's plan to retake Moat Cailin.
Robb intends for Catelyn to spend the rest of the war in safety with Lord Mallister at Seagard after Edmure Tully weds Roslin Frey. However, Robb and Catelyn are betrayed by Houses Bolton and Frey and murdered during the Red Wedding.
A Feast for Crows
Lord Jason surrenders his castle at Seagard to Black Walder Frey after he threatens to hang Jason's son, Patrek, who had been taken captive at the Red Wedding. Black Walder keeps Jason as a prisoner inside his own castle, alongside his son.
