Why we had to go & mess with Maegor?
That’s what I imagine the Warrior’s Son knight was thinking just before Balerion blasted him out of existence!

I wanted to depict a scene happening during one of the many battles that Maegor Targaryen fought during his reign against the Faith Militant (the armed forces of the Faith), during the uprising of the Faith of the Seven.

A godly knight standing, maybe the one leading an entire army, in front of his and his brothers death!

Reference excerpt from the book: The Sons of the Dragon Fire and Blood

But the revels died away when Maegor mounted Balerion and descended upon the Hill of Rhaenys, where seven hundred of the Warrior’s Sons were at their morning prayers in the fortified sept.
