Maester to House Manderly
Hamdan is the maester and castellan of House Manderly in White Harbor, overseeing the household and its servants and advising its lord and master. Hamdan is a middle-aged graduate of the Citadel who has pursued his studies diligently, if not brilliantly, accumulating a number of different links to the maester’s chain that he wears. He’s a fairly typical maester in many regards: disdainful of what he considers superstition, preferring reason to violence, but somewhat cold-blooded when discussing the fates of others. He’s loyal to his house and office, an efficient and capable servant.
