Tyrion reverses Aemon's words to tell Jon, "Sometimes, duty is the death of love. Having lived for over a hundred years, Aemon has become aware of the struggles of men of the Night's Watch, in particular the significance of one's duty and dedication, primarily because he has faced a major struggle of such kind in his life.
As a Targaryen, Aemon's refusal of the Iron Throne shows that he has no interest in personal power and would rather devote himself to knowledge and the guidance of others.
He was aware that the Night's Watch was not what it used to be, and understood the severe weaknesses and threats that came with this fact.
Aemon possessed a very sly nature when it suited him, and could tell quite efficiently if someone was lying - a skill he apparently acquired while growing up in King's Landing.
Aemon possessed a dry wit, remarking that if every ranger who slept with a girl were beheaded, then the Wall would be garrisoned by headless men.
Clearly, Aemon does not suffer from the same Targaryen madness as the likes of Aerys and Viserys Targaryen did, since his mind remained completely and totally sharp and clear throughout his entire life, perhaps a tribute to the fact that he rejected positions of extreme power, whereas the Mad King and Viserys coveted extreme power.
However, Aemon clearly had a deep and personal love for his family, and cited that the death of that family was absolutely devastating for him - he was faced with an extraordinary decision when he learned of the defiance and destruction of House Targaryen , between his family loyalty and his oath to the Night's Watch.
He hints that he still deeply regrets his decision, but knows that he could have done very, very little. All the same, Aemon's love for his family shows with his reference to his father as 'Maekar, the First of His Name' in recognition of his ascendance to the Iron Throne, and continuing to refer to his brother Aegon as 'Egg'.
He was particularly appalled by the slaughter of children, discussing with rage the deaths of Rhaegar's children.
Aemon was an intelligent man who loved reading, and lamented the irony of being blind and surrounded by so many books. He became an extremely close friend of Samwell Tarly, whom he rather uniquely didn't judge based on his cowardice and obesity, and was constantly respectful of him.
Their friendship was so powerful that Sam didn't want Aemon to die, and he gave a heartfelt eulogy upon Aemon's death.
He is nearly a hundred years old in the first novel, and advances into his nd year by the third novel corresponding to his appearance in Season 3.
He has been on the Wall for almost seventy years and is known for his great wisdom, wise counsel and trusted judgment. Aemon was actually offered the throne after the deaths of his elder brothers Daeron and Aerion, but declined on account of his vows, thus allowing Aegon V "the Unlikely" to assume the throne.
Aemon then joined the Night's Watch in the hope that having taken oaths as both a member of the maesters and then the Night's Watch to forsake any claim to inheritance, no one would think of him as a legitimate heir to be used as political pawn against his younger brother.
Despite being isolated at the Wall for many decades and unable to travel due to his increasing age, Aemon knew his great-grandnephew Prince Rhaegar Targaryen well because they regularly corresponded via messenger-raven, making Aemon's decision not to leave the Wall all the more painful.
Aemon began training to be a maester when he was 9 or 10 years old, and finished his studies when he was 19, during the reign of his uncle King Aerys I Pycelle was only a baby at the time.
The Dunk and Egg short stories begin about two years after Aemon left to train at the Citadel, so while he is alive in that timeframe he does not prominently appear though his brothers do.
When he received his chain of office, Aemon's father asked him to come to King's Landing to serve on his small council, but fearing that this would cause him to clash with the Grand Maester, Aemon chose instead to serve as at Dragonstone.
Aemon joined the Night's Watch when he was 35, following the death of his father and succession of Aegon V, meaning that by the time Jon Snow joined the Night's Watch Aemon had been at the Wall for about 65 years.
However, he saw no reason to tell Robert Baratheon, as the rules of the Night's Watch are that any member sheds all previous family ties, and the Night's Watch are their family now.
Further, Aemon was already a blind old man, and a respected member of the Night's Watch for decades. Aemon took no particular action in support of House Targaryen when it was overthrown by Robert, so Mormont was confident that Aemon held true to his vows and no longer considered himself a Targaryen.
Other characters later point out that it is somewhat unusual that Aemon, a respected member of the Order of Maesters for decades, was never promoted to the rank of Archmaester , to become part of the ruling Conclave in Oldtown.
It is speculated that the Conclave was wary about making a member of the royal family an Archmaester, given the entanglements this might create with the Targaryens.
Whatever the case, the entire reason that Aemon joined the Night's Watch was to move as far away from the centers of power as possible, so it is probable that even if he were asked he would have declined a promotion to Archmaester at the Citadel.
Aemon is 99 years old in the first novel. Actor Peter Vaughan was 88 years old during Season 1. While portraying the blind Aemon, Vaughan is himself partially blind.
Aemon should have the rare and distinctive purple-colored irises of House Targaryen, though no one ever mentions it - and they might deduce his secret past as a Targaryen from this.
More probably, his blind eyes are apparently so white with cataracts that no one can tell what their original color was.
In the novels, Aemon does not automatically take Sam as his personal steward, but is persuaded to do so by Jon Snow. Instead, Lord Commander Snow sends him to the Citadel in Oldtown via Braavos, along with Sam and Gilly, fearing that Melisandre may sacrifice him for his "king's blood".
Aemon grows weaker and feverish during the journey and his mind starts to wander not just to his youth with Egg but also dreams of dragons and Daenerys Targaryen, cursing his age for making him unable to seek her out and counsel her; he becomes certain that Daenerys is " the prince that was promised ", and that Melisandre was wrong about Stannis.
He explains Sam that initially he thought Rhaegar was the one whom the prophecy referred to, but it was a mistake, since the word "prince" in High Valyrian is gender-neutral: " Daenerys is the one, born amidst salt and smoke.
The dragons prove it ". Fearing that he will not make it to Oldtown, he begs Sam to tell that to the archmaesters at the Citadel and have them send Daenerys a maester, for counseling and protection.
During one of his fits, Aemon grows convinced that it was a mistake for him to leave the Wall because "cold preserves", implying that the ice magic of the Wall was keeping him alive.
He finally perishes aboard the Cinnamon Wind , a merchant "swan ship" of the Summer Islands travelling from Braavos to Oldtown.
The eulogy Sam gives aboard is the following:. No man was wiser, or gentler, or kinder. At the Wall, a dozen lords commander came and went during his years of service, but he was always there to counsel them.
He counseled kings as well. How many men would do that? He was the blood of the dragon, but now his fire has gone out. He was Aemon Targaryen.
And now his watch is ended. Aemon's body has not been burned yet, because the captain would not allow a funeral pyre aboard the ship. It is currently being preserved in a cask of blackbelly rum until Sam has a chance to conduct a proper funeral in Oldtown.
In honor of Aemon's memory, Gilly decides to name Mance Rayder's baby son "Aemon Battleborn" or "Aemon Steelsong", but only after he is two years old, as per wildling tradition she has not chosen a name for her own baby yet.

I will not tell you to stay or go. You must make that choice yourself, and live with it for the rest of your days — as I have. This one will be long, and dark things will come with it.
There are less than a thousand of us, now. We can't man the other castles on the Wall. We can't properly patrol the wilderness.
We have barely enough resources to keep our lads armed and fed. Oh, we all do our duty when there's no cost to it.
Honor comes easy then. Yet, sooner or later in every man's life there comes a day when it's not easy. A day when he must choose.

Maesters are expected to eschew their familial background and political allegiances. They drop their family name when they join the order.
They are assigned to serve at castles and holdfasts throughout the Seven Kingdoms and are bound by their vows to serve whoever holds the castle in which they reside, regardless of changes in lordship.
It is not considered a breach of their vows if a maester advises the current lord of their castle in military matters to defeat their enemies, but if their lord is defeated by his enemies and possession of the castle officially changes hands, the maester is expected to serve his new lord.
Similar to the Night's Watch , the Order of Maesters is an egalitarian institution whose members must ignore their past family and political ties, give up their right to inheritance, and take an oath of celibacy.
Another similarity is that both the Night's Watch and the maesters are considered to be servants of the realm.
It is possible to be both a maester and a member of the Night's Watch, due to the similar restrictions of their vows and because the castles along the Wall each need a maester.
This has always been something of a rarity, however, as even during its prime the Night's Watch only maintained nineteen castles along the Wall, and by the time of Robert's Rebellion , the number of manned castles had dwindled over the centuries to only three.
Thus in the current era there are usually only three maesters who are also members of the Night's Watch. Most prominent among these is Maester Aemon , who by the outbreak of the War of the Five Kings had served as maester of Castle Black for over seventy years.
Should the need arise at the Wall, it is also permissible for a member of the Night's Watch to be trained as a maester at the Citadel, then return to the Wall to serve as the maester of one of its castles.
The headquarters of the Order of Maesters is the Citadel , a complex devoted to higher learning, which is located in the city of Oldtown in the southwest of the Reach.
New initiates are trained at the Citadel, and upon finishing their studies, gain the title of "maester" and are assigned to serve at a castle or town in Westeros.
The entire order is ruled over by the Conclave , the council of archmaesters , who reside in the Citadel. The Grand Maester is considered the most senior member of the order, and is its personal representative to the king on the Iron Throne.
Only the Conclave may select the Grand Maester and while the King or Hand may dismiss the Grand Maester from the council, they cannot strip him of his title.
An initiate trying and failing to master the "higher mysteries", using a Valyrian glass candle. Maesters wear a chain around their necks composed of various metals to signify their personal expertise.
Maesters personally forge each link themselves. Each link indicates a different field of study. There are sixteen recognized fields each with a different representative metal.
Maesters are expected to wear their chains at all times, even when sleeping. Known metals and corresponding fields of study include: .
For a long time, many book readers mistakenly pronounced "maester" as "my-stir". Maesters in Westeros basically serve many of the functions that Christian monks did in real-life medieval society, being lore-masters and advisors to noble families, who are mostly responsible for promoting literature culture, and who provide many of the writing services with letters or books that real-life Christian monks or clergymen would in a medieval chancery.
The origin of the Order of Maesters was not revealed in the first five novels of the A Song of Ice and Fire series, but the The World of Ice and Fire sourcebook , written from the perspective of a maester writing a comprehensive history Westeros, shed some light on their history.
