- "Ser Damon Morrigen proposed a trial by seven. Ser Damon and six of the Faith Militant against the king and his six champions."
- ―The High Sparrow
Ser Garibald was a knight, a septon and a devotee of the Faith Militant. When newly-crowned King Maegor Targaryen returned to King's Landing, Ser Damon Morrigen challenged the Faith Militant to a Trial by combat to prove his right to rule. They accepted, and the resulting trial of seven pitted Maegor and six of his Kingsguard against Ser Damon and six other champions of the Faith Militant, among whom was Ser Garibald. The tales about the resulting confrontation are many, but by the end, of the fourteen men who entered the field only Maegor was left alive.
In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Ser Garibald of the Seven Stars is a member of the Warrior's Sons - one of two military orders that comprises the Faith Militant. In the TV show the Faith Militant is condensed into a single order. Ser Garibald, also known as the Septon Knight, was stationed at the King's Landing chapter of the Warrior's Sons, based in the Sept of Remembrance, in 42 AC. He was killed in the trial by seven between the Warrior's Sons and Maegor Targaryen and his Kingsguard. One chronicler claims that he sang a paean as he sought.
