It is plain to any who have seen Ser Mikkel spar why he was idolized by his youngest brother Perin. The knight looks good with a sword in his hand whether he is swinging it or merely standing majestically. His demeanor is much like that of his father while he takes after his mother’s looks.
Mikkel, like his elder brother Donnel, has lived his life close to home on Pebble. Though it grieved him to admit it, he admired his brother Perin’s contributions to Robert’s Rebellion, despite his tragic demise.
