Bennis of Maidenpool EditBennis of Maidenpool is Captain of the Guard in Heart's Home, serving under Loras Corbray.
Bennis was born to a whore in Maidenpool, and he was sent to live with a nearby Sept when he was very young. He ran away from them, living as an urchin in Maidenpool until fourteen, when he was found by Lewys, and he was recruited into the Salt Hound mercenary company, where Lewys became a father figure to him, and the company his family. He spent most of his life with the company, visiting every city on the Narrow Sea, and many others. He became an excellent fighter, and he was placed in charge of training of new recruits of the company. When the Ascent of the Lion began, the company went to fight in the war, and they disbanded shortly after it ended. Bennis became a freelance mercenary, protecting caravans and wealthy men.
