Appearance and Character
Myles was known as Blackheart because of the sigil of House Toyne, which was depicted on his shield. He enjoyed the nickname and appreciated having a fearsome reputation, but he was not a cruel man. His good friend Jon Connington considered Myles full of life.
Myles secretly plotted with Magister Illyrio Mopatis, Lord Varys, and the exiled lord Jon Connington to have the Golden Company aid Aegon Targaryen in claiming the Iron Throne. After his death in 296 AC, Myles's skull was dipped in gold and placed upon a company standard. He was succeeded as captain-general by the company paymaster, Ser Harry Strickland.
A Dance with Dragons
When Jon Connington arrives at the Golden Company's encampment near Volon Therys, he contemplates the company's golden skulls ringing the captain-general's tent. Myles's skull has a glittering grin.
Quotes by Myles
A captain-general should be feared, by friend and foe alike. If men think me cruel, so much the better.—Myles to Jon Connington
