— Pate

The Quill and Tankard is an inn located in Oldtown, on an island in the middle of the Honeywine. It is frequented by novices and acolytes of the Citadel, such as Pate or Aemon Targaryen.


A Feast for CrowsEdit

Alleras, Mollander, Roone and Armen encounter Pate at the inn, who is busy waiting for the Alchemist. Alleras buys a round of strong cider, to celebrate the forging of his copper link. They argue about Daenerys Targaryen and the rumours of dragons coming from Qarth. Pate laments to himself about his love for Rosey, one of the serving wenches, who dotes on Alleras.
