Maester Ethan Waters

Enthusiastic Maester


Young by the standards of Maesters, he’s on his first posting outside of the Citadel following the passing of Petyr Connington the old Maester. He has only recently arrived in the Vale. He was left at the citadel by an ailing woman after the battle of the nine-penny kings.

Petyr Connington recommended him to the post after meeting him at the tournament to celebrate the sucess of Robert’s Rebellion. He sucessfully treated a number of the small-folk after a portion of grandstand collapsed when knights fell into it.

He is deeply devoted to his calling, with a strong sense of charity having previously worked in the poorer sections of King’s Landing. At times his better nature can be his undoing, as he tends to assume others will work from similar motivations.

(Nb he’s got to have a flaw given his age. I’d imagine him as being pretty deft for surgery reasons, and I’d imagine having a poor constituion wouldn’t sit with him tending to the sick – so I’m assuming hes gotten slightly overweight as he’s turning 30 and has lived in the citadel for all of that time.). Hes therefore possibly a tad fatter than the actor I’ve selected.
