Orphan-Maker is a Valyrian steel sword belonging to House Roxton. [1]


It is Valyrian steel, and said to have a black blade.[1]


Ser Jon Roxton wielded the blade during the Dance of the Dragons fighting for king Aegon II.[1] During the Battle on the Honeywine he used it to deliver a fatal wound to Lord Owen Costayne.[1] During the Second Battle of Tumbleton, "Bold" Jon slew Hugh Hammer when he least suspected it, splitting him from groin to throat with Orphan-Maker. Shortly thereafter he was killed by Hugh's men in a ten against one fight.[1]
