Archmaester Walgrave is an elderly archmaester of the Citadel. He has lost his wits.[1] His ring, rod and mask are made of black iron.[1] He often calls Pate by the name "Cressen", suggesting that he worked with Maester Cressen in the past.[1]


He was considered by many to have the foremost knowledge in ravencraft and wrote a book about the subject called Black Wings, Swift Words. [2] He taught Maester Yandel how to read.[3] However he is now an old man and keeps the title archmaester only by courtesy, his wits having left him a long time ago. Maester Gormon now judges in his place.[1] Pate was assigned to help him.
