Ser Perkin, also known as Ser Perkin the Flea was a hedge knight that lived at the time of the Dance of the Dragons.[1]


During the riots in the capital he crowned his own squire, Trystane Truefyre, declaring him a natural son of the late King Viserys I Targaryen. He would knight anyone who would pledge to his cause.[1] After Rhaenyra abandoned King's Landing, Ser Perkin installed Trystane in the Red Keep and began to issue edicts. When Aegon II Targaryen retook the capital Ser Perkin was imprisoned, whereas Trystane was knighted before being executed, as he had requested.[2]

After Lord Cregan Stark arrested the conspirators in the murder of Aegon II, many of the accused chose to take the black and join the Night's Watch, led by Ser Perkin.[3]
