Symeon Star-Eyes is a legendary figure from the Age of Heroes who was blind. He is described in tales as a knight even though chivalry came to Westeros thousands of years after.


According to legend, Symeon was a knight who lost both of his eyes. He replaced them by putting star sapphires in the empty sockets, or so the singers claim.[1] He fought with a long staff with blades at both ends and would spin it in his hands to chop down two men at once.[1] He once visited the Nightfort where he saw hellhounds fighting.[2]
