Rumble in the Riverlands
The old and wise Maester of House Blackwood
Maester Darius was once a member of House Drox, a minor house in the Westerlands, but decided to give up his name and study to become a Maester at the Citadel in Oldstone. Maester Darius serves as steward and council to Lord Tytos Blackwood as he did for Tytos’s father. A shrewd and deliberate old man Maester Daius rarely makes rash decisions and as such has helped steer House Blackwood away from disaster many times. A great scholar Darius has forged a number of links including the silver link of healing, the black iron link of ravenry and the gold link of accounting. Of all his skills Maester Darious is probably most well known for his mastery of medicine and he healing arts. He has personally delivered Lord Tytos and his late brother and sister as well as Luther, Lucas and Alishia. He is often called upon by to deliver or treat ill members of other houses and when called Maester Darius rarely does not answer. While most of his time is taken up by acting as steward Maester Darius also spends much of his time tutoring both Lucas and Alishia in language, accounting and politics. Recently he has been working more closely with Lucas trying to prepare him to take over House Blackwood from his father. Its a difficult task as Lucas is still young and more interested in living life then reading about it but Maester Darius is a patient man. The only person Maester Darius does not like at Rivertree Hall is Nicholas Rives and his roaring laughter. Darius makes no secret about his dislike for the man. Most of the house ignores Darius private feud finding it a humorous distraction.
