Behind the Scenes

Ser Howard is listed on one version of the roll of arms included in selected printings of the collected version of the graphic novel adaptation of The Hedge Knight, which depicts the Pyle greathelm sigil surrounded by a bordure of grey roundels, thereby differing slightly from House Pyle's original sigil. He does not appear in the original novella.

The knight may be a homage by George R. R. Martin to Howard Pyle , the author of The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood and a writer recommended by Martin.[2]
