Biography

The boy was appointed the High Septon of the Faith of the Seven by King Baelor Targaryen following the death of the stonemason, as Baelor had seen him talking to doves that he believed answered with the voices of the Seven.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the boy was the youngest High Septon in the history of Westeros. He was said to be a street urchin or the son of a draper, and Baelor appointed him as he believed he had seen the boy perform miracles such as communicating with the gods through doves. The Most Devout had misgivings about the king's decision, but agreed to it as Baelor had done so much for the Faith of the Seven. Despite Baelor's claims that the boy was a miracle worker, he was unable to save the king's life when he fasted himself to death.
