|Book(s)||The Rogue Prince (mentioned)|
Mellos was a Grand Maester during the reign of Viserys I Targaryen. He replaced Grand Maester Runciter in 112 AC. He encouraged the match between Laenor Velaryon and Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen despite the fact that Laenor was known not to be interested in women. He also counselled forgiveness for the king's brother, Prince Daemon Targaryen. His writings were used frequently by Archmaester Gyldayn in his writings, who considered Mellos's frequent leechings to be less effective than his successor's potions and tinctures.
What of it? I am not fond of fish, but when fish is served, I eat it.
