Quotes by Guyard

Jon: Your Grace, I beg the honor.

Guyard: Beg all you like, by rights it should be one of the seven who strikes the first blow.

Randyll: It takes more than a pretty cloak to charge a shield wall. I was leading Mace Tyrell's van when you were still sucking on your mother's teat, Guyard.[7]

Guyard the Green, yes? Of the Rainbow Guard? Sworn to give his own life for his king's? If I had such a cloak, I would be ashamed to wear it.[6]
