House Vikary is a house of landed knights sworn to Casterly Rock.[1]

According to semi-canon sources they blazon their arms with quarterly: a red boar's head on white, beneath a gold bend sinister a silver lion rampant regardant with a forked tail, armed and langued gold, on red.[2] Their words are not known.


The use of the reverse colors of the Reynes arms in the second and third quarters beneath a bend sinister may indicate that the founder of the house was either a Reyne bastard or a descendant of a Reyne bastard. It is also possibile that the red boar indicates a relation with House Crakehall, whose arms depict a black and white brindled boar.
