A Game of Thrones

Patrek attends the Hand's tourney with his father, Lord Jason Mallister. They pass Catelyn Stark and Ser Rodrik Cassel during their journey to King's Landing, but do not recognize the disguised travelers.[4]

Patrek is a member of Robb Stark's personal guard during the battle in the Whispering Wood.[5]

A Clash of Kings

Theon Greyjoy helps Patrek and his father bring hostage westermen to the Mallister seat of Seagard.[6] Patrek gets along well with Theon during their journey, so his father, Lord Jason, reminds him that Seagard was built to keep out the ironborn. The following day, however, Patrek and Theon drink apple wine and visit the amorous young wife of a miller whom Patrek knows.[2] Theon then sails from Seagard to the Iron Islands as an envoy for Robb, now the King in the North.[6]

A Storm of Swords

Following the Battle of the Fords, Ser Edmure Tully spends much of his time with his friends, Ser Marq Piper and Patrek.[7] Edmure becomes Lord of Riverrun after the death of his father, Lord Hoster.[8]

Patrek is among the nobles who accompany Edmure to the Twins for his wedding to Roslin Frey.[9] He serves as one of Robb's guards for the evening, abstaining from drink during the wedding feast. When it is time for Edmure and Roslin to depart the hall for the customary bedding, Patrek proposes a toast to Edmure's one-eyed fish.[10] Unlike most of Robb's party, Patrek survives the Red Wedding and is taken captive by House Frey at the Twins.[11]

A Feast for Crows

Patrek is brought by Black Walder Frey to the siege of Seagard, where Walder threatens to hang him if Lord Jason does not surrender the castle. Once Jason yields, he and his son are held captive within their castle.[12][13]

After Ser Jaime Lannister negotiates an end to the siege of Riverrun, he informs Edwyn Frey that King Tommen I Baratheon requires all captives taken during the Red Wedding, which displeases the Freys.[14]


Patrek Mallister was not too ill a fellow; they shared a taste for wenches, wine, and hawking.[2]

Mallister or no, he was a more amiable riding companion than this sour old priest that his uncle Aeron had turned into.[2]
