Aemon Blackfyre was the second son of Daemon Blackfyre. He was Aegon Blackfyre's younger twin brother.[4]

Appearance and Character

According to Alyn Cockshaw, Aemon was a "witless bully".[5]

History

Aemon was the secondborn of the children of Daemon Blackfyre and Rohanne of Tyrosh.[3] He had an older twin brother, Aegon, and five younger brothers: Daemon, Haegon, Aenys, and two whose names are currently unknown. He also had at least two sisters.[5]

The twins often bullied their younger brother Daemon, and Daemon's friend, Alyn Cockshaw. Daemon once had a prophetic dream about the deaths of Aemon and Aegon, but the disbelieving twins only laughed at their brother.[5]

During the First Blackfyre Rebellion, when Aemon was twelve years old, he served as a squire to his father.[6] At the Battle of the Redgrass Field, Aemon's twin, Aegon, was killed by the arrows of Brynden Rivers and his Raven's Teeth. Daemon remained by his fallen son's side, and was also struck down by arrows. Aemon took up the sword Blackfyre from his dying father, but was then slain by the archers as well.[4][3]

Quotes about Aemon

Young Aemon took up Blackfyre when the blade slipped from his dying father's fingers, so Bloodraven slew him, too, the younger of the twins. Thus perished the black dragon and his sons.[4]

Aegon and Aemon. Wretched witless bullies, just like you. When we were little, they took pleasure in tormenting me and Daemon both.[5]

I dreamed it. This pale white castle, you, a dragon bursting from an egg, I dreamed it all, just as I once dreamed of my brothers lying dead. They were twelve and I was only seven, so they laughed at me, and died. I am two-and-twenty now, and I trust my dreams.[5]
