Jalabhar has the dark skin and extravagant feather cape typical of Summer Islanders. The feathers of his own cape are green and scarlet.
A Game of Thrones
Jalabhar attends the Hand's tourney in King's Landing. He loses to Anguy in the archery tournament. After the death of King Robert I Baratheon, he remains in King's Landing throughout the War of the Five Kings.
A Clash of Kings
Jalabhar attends the tourney on King Joffrey's name day in King's Landing. He survives the riot of King's Landing when the procession is attacked on their return to the Red Keep after seeing Princess Myrcella Baratheon off to Dorne.
A Storm of Swords
Jalabhar attends the wedding of Sansa Stark and Tyrion Lannister. He is part of the group that accompanies Tyrion to meet the delegation from Dorne. He is a guest at the wedding of King Joffrey I Baratheon and Queen Margaery Tyrell, giving Joffrey a bow of golden wood and a quiver of arrows fletched with green and scarlet feathers.
A Feast for Crows
Jalabhar visits Queen Margaery often, teaching her and her handmaids the Summer Tongue. He petitions the Iron Throne for aid in retaking his seat, the Red Flower Vale, but is put off by Queen Cersei Lannister.
During his torture, the Blue Bard is forced to list those he claims to have been Queen Margaery's secret lovers; among them is Jalabhar. Cersei has an arrest warrant signed for Jalabhar as part of her plans to remove Margaery, as well as getting rid of the annoying prince.
A Dance with Dragons
Jalabhar Xho is held with the rest of Margaery's falsely accused lovers in a dungeon under the charge of Qyburn.
In Meereen, after Daenerys Targaryen refuses his offer of marriage, Prince Quentyn Martell recalls Jalabhar Xho; Quentyn thinks that apart from Dany, the rest of Meereen seems to see him as an amusing curiosity, just like Xho was seen at the court of King Robert.
|“||Splendid as he looked in his bright feather cloak, he had only come to beg.||”|
|“||Beneath his jewels and feathers, Xho was little more than a wellborn beggar. Robert could have put an end to his importuning for good with one firm “No,” but the notion of conquering the Summer Isles had appealed to her drunken lout of a husband.||”|
