Fiers of Arramis

A knight from Heinrich von dem Türlin’s Diu Crône who bore a griffin’s claw as his symbol.

He was engaged to lady Flursenesephin of Sorgarda Castle, where Fiers was expected to win a tournament. When Flursenesephin quarreled with her little sister Quebeleplus, however, the latter asked Gawaine to defeat Fiers. Gawaine did so, and compelled Fiers to surrender to the little girl.

Essentially the same character appears as Meliant of Lis in Wolfram von Eschenbach’s Parzival. In French, the knight’s first name means ‘proud’.
