Ser Pate of Longleaf, known as Longleaf the Lionslayer, was a knight from Longleaf during the Targaryen civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons.[1]

History

Pate served as a squire in the Battle at the Red Fork, during which he mortally wounded Lord Jason Lannister in the third attack by the greens. Lord Petyr Piper granted knighthood to Pate afterward.[2] Longleaf the Lionslayer led a ragged band of survivors from earlier battles to join Lords Bigglestone, Chambers, and Perryn at the Battle by the Lakeshore.[1]

Ser Criston Cole offered single combat to Pate, Lord Roderick Dustin, and Ser Garibald Grey at the Butcher's Ball, but all refused him. Criston was instead slain by Robb Rivers' arrows and his host was destroyed.[3]

When Tessarion began attacking during the First Battle of Tumbleton, Pate was unhorsed and trampled.[4]

Quotes

I'll have no songs about how brave you died, Kingmaker. There's tens o' thousands dead on your account.[4]
