A Storm of Swords

On Dragonstone Davos Seaworth, who is now King Stannis Baratheon's Hand, thinks that he has risen to high due to his humble origins. Davos tells Maester Pylos that a King's Hand should be a highborn lord, someone wise and learned, a battle commander or a great knight. Maester Pylos reminds Davos Seaworth that Myles Smallwood was renowned for his courage but failed as Hand. [1]
