In the booksEdit

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.
