Title Gaidin

Hammar was the Gaidin Blademaster in the White Tower, in charge of training aspiring Warders in swordplay. He was a Blademaster and by right, owner of a Heron-marked sword.[1][2]

Appearance Edit

He was said to be solid and shaped like a block of stone, with a gravelly voice to match.

History Edit

It has been stated that he must have respected Siuan Sanche very highly, due to his decisions that led to his death.

Activities Edit

He required Galadedrid Damodred and Gawyn Trakand to fight Matrim Cauthon, still weak from his ordeal with the ruby-hilted dagger, and who was armed solely with a quarterstaff to their swords, to teach them a lesson on combat.[3]

Gawyn killed Hammar, who was trying to free Siuan Sanche shortly after she was stilled and deposed as Amyrlin Seat by leading an entire host of Warders to free her.[4]
