Ser Luthor Largent was a knight who served as commander of the City Watch of King's Landing during the Targaryen civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons.

Appearance and Character

Archmaester Gyldayn describes Luthor as very tall and fierce.[1]

History

When the capital was invaded, Ser Luthor and his gold cloaks turned on the greens, as they were loyal to Prince Daemon Targaryen, their former commander. Luthor personally killed his second-in-command, Ser Gwayne Hightower. As a reward for his loyalty, Ser Luthor was ennobled by Queen Rhaenyra.[2]

When Queen Helaena Targaryen committed suicide, many of the smallfolk believed that Luthor killed her under the orders of his queen. Gyldayn dismisses that Largent killed Queen Helaena, for there's abundant proof he was eating with three hundred gold cloaks at the barracks by the Gate of the Gods at the time of her death.[3]

During the riots of King's landing, Luthor took four hundred spears to disperse rioting sailors attacking the River Gate in an attempt to return to their ships.[3] Then he led five hundred gold cloaks down Cobbler's Square to disperse the thousands gathered around the Shepherd. Some say the first victim of the confrontation was a little girl trodden under Ser Luthor's warhorse. The gold cloaks, despite being well-armed and well-disciplined, were no match against ten thousand rioters. Largent was pulled down from his armored warhorse, stabbed in the stomach, and bludgeoned to death. Ser Glendon Goode of the Queensguard recovered Ser Luthor's corpse from the riots; his body was only recognized by its size.[1]

Quotes

Daemon gave us these cloaks and they're gold no matter how you turn them.[1]
