- "Ser Aron."
- ―Sansa Stark greets Aron Santagar
Ser Aron Santagar is a background character in the first season. He is played by an unidentified extra and only appears in "The Pointy End." He is a member of House Santagar, a knightly house of Dorne.
Ser Aron is present at a court session in the Red Keep in which Janos Slynt is created Lord Slynt and given the castle of Harrenhal and later Ser Barristan Selmy is dismissed from the Kingsguard. When Sansa Stark appears to ask for mercy for her father, she greets Ser Aron, though the knight turns away.
Ser Aron dies during the riots in King's Landing.

In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Ser Aron Santagar is the Master-at-Arms of the Red Keep. He is Dornish, as revealed in the fourth novel, and is described by Ser Rodrik Cassel as a vain but honest man. In the first book, Ser Aron is secretly approached by Ser Rodrik to see if he might recognize the dagger used by the assassin sent to murder Bran Stark. He also participates in the Tourney of the Hand.
Upon their arrival in King's Landing, Tyrion sends Podrick to Ser Aron for training. Pod's training comes to an end when Ser Aron is killed.
Ser Aron perishes in the Riot of King's Landing. In the episode several courtiers are shown to be attacked by the rioting mob; it is unclear if any of these were meant to be Ser Aron.
While Ser Aron died in the second novel, as of the fifth novel not specific replacement for him as Master-of-Arms at the Red Keep has been mentioned.
Tommen, who has befriended Loras Tyrell, tells his mother he wishes Loras to be the new Master-of-Arms. Jaime thinks too that Loras is a good choice, but Cersei - who deeply loathes all the Tyrells - refuses to hear about it, and contemplates about appointing a Dornish for the office (because that would annoy the Tyrells).
