Acolyte (Alchemists' Guild)
Acolyte is a second tier rank of a member of the Alchemists' Guild.
Trained acolytes prepare "the substance" in a series of bare stone cells within the Guildhall of the Alchemists. Above each work cell is a room filled entirely with sand, with the floor rigged with an alleged spell to fall away and smother the blaze -and the acolyte - if the acolyte is careless and allows the wildfire to ignite.
During Robert's Rebellion, the acolytes of the Alchemists' Guild were unaware of the wildfire plot. Hallyne was an acolyte in those days.
After a cache of wildfire from King Aerys' days is discovered in a storeroom beneath the Great Sept of Baelor, Wisdom Hallyne dispatches the most able acolytes with a cart filled with sand to transport the jars of wildfire to the Guildhall.
