Ser Goodwin was a knight and the master-at-arms at Evenfall Hall, in service to House Tarth.[2]


Ser Goodwin fought in the Stepstones. He had a friend during the War of the Ninepenny Kings, a fierce warrior in the yard who died young when he hesitated in killing a man.[3]

Goodwin taught Brienne of Tarth how to fight.[2] He has been dead for a long time.[4]

Quotes by Goodwin

Men will always underestimate you,[...], and their pride will make them want to vanquish you quickly, let it be said that a woman tried them sorely. Let them spend their strength in furious attacks, whilst you conserve your own. Wait and watch, girl, wait and watch.[4]

—one of Goodwin's lessons to Brienne of Tarth
