Cerrick was the maester at Coldmoat at the start of the reign of King Aerys I Targaryen. He was in the service of Lady Rohanne Webber.


Cerrick was a young man in 211 AC. His pinched face had dark brown eyes and a great hooked nose.[2]


Cerrick came from the Iron Islands. The maester designed the dam of the Chequy Water, which caused a conflict over the river between Lady Rohanne Webber of Coldmoat and Ser Eustace Osgrey of Standfast.[2]

After Ser Duncan the Tall defeated Ser Lucas Inchfield in a trial by battle, Maester Cerrick treated his wounds. Cerrick was able to resuscitate Duncan after he had drowned in the river during the battle, due to his study of ironborn priests' kiss of life. Duncan's squire, Egg, worried about poison, forced Cerrick to first taste anything he wanted to give the knight while Duncan was still unconscious.[2]


Count yourself fortunate that I am ironborn. The priests of the Drowned God know how to drown a man and bring him back, and I have made a study of their beliefs and customs.[2]
