Pycelle became a maester during the rule of Maekar I Targaryen. He has since advised Aegon V, Jaehaerys II, Aerys II, Robert I Baratheon and Joffrey I Baratheon. He has always had a fondness for House Lannister, and has slyly found small ways to increase the Lannisters' presence in King's Landing. For example, he advised Aerys II Targaryen to choose Tywin Lannister as his Hand, hoping that Tywin would take the throne.
