The Heroes of Ice and Fire 1: Alan o’ the Oak

Alan o’ the Oak

We’ll start our journey into the world of the heroes of the Dawn Age of Westeros with Alan o’ the Oak. He is a legendary figure from the Westerlands that supposedly founded House Yew. He is also known as ” The Blind Bowman” but whether this is because he was so skilled that he could hit his mark blindfolded or so bad that he couldn’t shoot properly at all is openly argued about in the Citadel of Oldtown today.
There is also some mystery about why the house he founded is named “yew” even though he is called “o’ the Oak”.
