The Mystery Knight
Ser Maynard was among the hedge knights encamped by the lake. He attended the wedding of Lord Ambrose Butterwell and his new wife, but refused to take part in the tourney. After Ser Duncan the Tall lost in the lists, Ser Maynard tried to persuade him to leave, but Ser Duncan refused. When Ser Duncan was cornered by Lord Alyn Cockshaw, Ser Maynard watched until Lord Alyn had fallen into the well, then proceeded to help the injured Ser Duncan and informed him of the whereabouts of his missing squire. During the Second Blackfyre Rebellion his presence was missed.
He claimed that Bloodraven was well aware of the would-be rebellion and was proven right. It is strongly implied that he works with Bloodraven or may in fact be Bloodraven himself using his infamous sorcery. When Duncan mentions that they could all be bastard sons of Aegon the Unworthy if the stories of his lust were true, he quips "And who's to say we're not?"...hinting at his heritage as Bloodraven, a Great Bastard.
