Daemon Targaryen from House of the Dragon

In House of the Dragon, Prince Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith) is brother to King Viserys I. He’s equally skilled as a dragonrider — mounting the dragon Caraxes — and as a warrior — wielding the Valerian steel sword Dark Sister. He’s also gifted in the art of instigation. He later weds his niece, Queen Rhaenyra (Just Targaryen Things). Easily convert this Daemon costume to Aemond’s by adding an eye patch.
