House Baelish (ADWD)
House Mallister of Seagard is one of the most prominent noble houses from the riverlands. Seagard is a fortress built to defend the coast against the reavers from the Iron Islands, and dates from before Aegon's Conquest. The Mallisters distrust the ironborn.
Lord Lymond Mallister unhorsed Ser Criston Cole at the tourney at Maidenpool to celebrate the accession of King Viserys I Targaryen. Ser Joseth Mallister jousted in the tourney at Ashford Meadow. He was left unconscious in one of the first tilts. 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 which followed, Lord Jason attended the wedding between Catelyn Tully and Eddard Stark and gave lavish gifts. At the Battle of the Trident, he slew three of Rhaegar's bannermen.
During Greyjoy's Rebellion, Lord Jason Mallister slew Rodrik Greyjoy while defending against the storming of Seagard. He took part in the tourney at Lannisport following the rebellion, but he was defeated by the eventual victor, Lord Jorah Mormont.
A Game of Thrones
The Mallisters join the northern host when Robb Stark rides south from the Twins. Jason's son, Patrek Mallister, is one of the thirty young sons of lords that ride with Robb in the battle in the Whispering Wood and the Battle of the Camps. Meanwhile, Jason holds a subordinate command and captures Ser Gawen Westerling.

At Hag's Mire, Jason brings the captain of the Myraham, who breaks the news to the gathered northern and river lords that Balon Greyjoy is dead and Euron Greyjoy has claimed the Seastone Chair. Lord Mallister reports that his fleet at Seagard consists of half a dozen longships and two war galleys. Robb orders him to send two of his warships into the Neck (one carrying Galbart Glover, the other Maege Mormont) to find Greywater Watch.
Ser Denys Mallister is considered a leading contender to become Lord Commander of the Night's Watch after the death of Lord Commander Jeor Mormont. However, he steps aside so that Jon Snow can win.
