The Red Knight
Perimones was lord of the White Tower, “well matchecold all about, and double dyked,” where he was preparing to host a tournament when Gareth passed by and he fought the young knight in attempt to avenge his brother Percard. Perimones had at least fifty knights in his service; on being defeated he yielded them all, as well as himself, to Gareth’s command.
He jousted in Lyonors’ tournament at Castle Dangerous and made a creditable showing, and later came to court about the time of Gareth’s wedding, obtained the favor of being made Gareth’s butler at the high feast of Michaelmas, and was made a member of the Round Table.
