A Song of Ice and Fire: Blood and Stone
As is common in many great houses of Westeros, House Tallystan is in the posession of an ancestral Valyrian steel blade. Granted as a gift from House Targaryen for Lord Rowan Baratheon’s excellent performance during the Blackfyre Rebellion, the sword, named Bastion, has been passed down the family line ever since. Cedric Tallystan wielded the impressive blade in several battles, modelling himself after his noble father until he was eventually struck down during the ill-conceived assault on Duskendale. Rumour has it that Cedric’s gauntlet-clad hand clung to the blade’s hilt like iron once it was severed.
