A Dance with Dragons
When several Meereenese ships join the blockade of Meereen, Skahaz mo Kandaq presents Daenerys Targaryen a list with the names of the Meereenese captains and which families they belong too. The House of Loraq is among the names.
While in Daznak's Pit Daenerys Targaryen sees members of the House of Loraq occupying the red and orange benches. The women are veiled, and the men have their hair brushed and lacquered into horns and hands and spikes, the classic manner of Ghiscari men. Dany notes that Hizdahr's kin of the ancient line of Loraq seem to favour tokars of purple and indigo and lilac.
