     Ser Derrick Fossoway 

Ser Derrick Fossoway

The Bad Apple

An exiled Westerosi knight with a notoriously black reputation.


  • Black Knight: Has a "black" reputation. In fact that's pretty much the only thing we know about him.
  • The Exile: Driven from Westeros. Whether this was for being a Blackfyre supporter (not unlikely given his association with Maelys) or just a general bastard is unknown.
  • In-Series Nickname: The Bad Apple, a pun on the Fossoway sigil.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: If you think about it, making "bad apple" jokes has to be pretty tempting wherever the Fossoways are concerned, so Ser Derrick's apparent monopoly on the nickname says a lot about what a deeply unpleasant man he must have been.
