Recent Events

A Dance with Dragons

Tumco spends most of A Dance with Dragons in training in the Great Pyramid to become a knight, as a squire to Ser Barristan Selmy. Strong and fast, the youth already has a good acquaintance with sword and battle-axe. Barristan thinks Tumco shows much promise as he is the best natural swordsman he has seen since Jaime Lannister. Along with Larraq he is Barristan's best squire.[4]

When Barristan goes down to the dungeons to tell Gerris Drinkwater and Archibald Yronwood of Quentyn Martell's demise, he takes with him two newly-made knights, Ser Tumco and the Red Lamb.[3]

On the brink of battle against the Yunkish besiegers, Tumco carries the banner of House Targaryen. Barristan realizes that Tumco is more afraid of the Pale Mare - spreading through the siege camps and launched into the city via trebuchet - than he is of their foes.[5]
