Aemon Blackfyre was the second son of Daemon Blackfyre. He was Aegon Blackfyre's twin brother, the younger of the two. He squired for his father.
Aemon was the secondborn of the children of Daemon Blackfyre. He had an older twin brother, Aegon, and five younger brothers, Daemon, Haegon, Aenys Blackfyre, and two whose names are currently unknown. He also had at least two sisters.
The twins liked to bully their younger brother Daemon and Daemon's friend, Alyn Cockshaw. Daemon once had a prophetic dream about the deaths of Aemon and Aegon, but the disbelieving twins only laughed at their brother. Aemon was later killed during the Battle of the Redgrass Field by Bloodraven's arrows, when he tried to take up the sword Blackfyre after Aegon and their father, Daemon I Blackfyre, had died.
Quotes about Aemon
“Young Aemon took up Blackfyre when the blade slipped from his dying father's fingers, so Bloodraven slew him, too, the younger of the twins. Thus perished the black dragon and his sons.”
- Eustace Osgrey to Duncan the Tall
“Aegon and Aemon. Wretched witless bullies, just like you. When we were little, they took pleasure in tormenting me and Daemon both.”
- Alyn Cockshaw to Duncan the Tall
“I dreamed it. This pale white castle, you, a dragon bursting from an egg, I dreamed it all, just as I once dreamed of my brothers lying dead. They were twelve and I was only seven, so they laughed at me, and died. I am two-and-twenty now, and I trust my dreams.”
