He was the master-at-arms of Aegon IV Targaryen in King's Landing. Aegon promised him a place in the Kingsguard so Quentyn made his wife join the Silent Sisters in order to facilitate this. However when a place became available under Daeron II, the successor of Aegon, Fireball was refused the white cloak and it was given to Ser Willem Wylde instead. This betrayal is what made Quentyn choose Daemon Blackfyre's side during Daemon's rebellion. It was rumored that he had as much a part as Bittersteel did in convincing Daemon to claim the throne.
It was Fireball that rescued Daemon when King Daeron sent the Kingsguard to arrest him. During the Blackfyre Rebellion he killed Lord Lefford at Lannisport and sent Lord Damon Lannister back to Casterly Rock when he came out to confront him. At the crossing of the Mander he slew all the sons of Lady Penrose save for the youngest, who he spared as a kindness to her. He was slain by a common archer on the eve of the Battle of the Redgrass Field when he stopped for a drink of water.
