A Dance with Dragons

Along with her fellow pit fighters Khrazz, Camarron of the Count, Goghor the Giant, the Spotted Cat, Fearless Ithoke and Belaquo Bonebreaker, Barsena accompanies Hizdahr zo Loraq when he petitions Daenerys Targaryen for the seventh time for the fighting pits to be reopened.[3]

During the reopening of the fighting pits to celebrate the marriage of Hizdahr and Daenerys, Barsena faces a boar with a sword instead of a spear. Despite her quickness and skill the boar manages to rip her open. Moments later Drogon descends into the arena, kills the boar, and begins to devour both corpses.[2]


All men must die, and women too... but not all will be remembered.[3]
