Appearance and Character

See also: Images of the dusky woman

The dusky woman is beautiful, she has brown skin that is a charcoal-and-earth colour.[1] She is missing her tongue, as Euron cut it out before giving her to Victarion. She is quiet, biddable and compliant.


Euron captured her from a slaver bound for Lys. Her origins and name are unknown. At first Victarion did not want her but when Euron said that she would otherwise be killed, Victarion relented. Victarion has no doubt that his brother bedded her before giving her to him as that is his brother's way. At first sight of Moqorro she hisses in sudden fury, like a snake.[1]
