Larraq, known as the Lash for his weapons of choice, is a former slave now in training with Ser Barristan Selmy to become a knight. He serves Barristan as a squire in Meereen.


Ser Barristan Selmy considers Larraq to be a fierce fighter. Larraq is skilled with a whip, which he snaps around the legs of his opponents to yank them off their feet, and trident, but Ser Barristan believes it will be years before he masters the sword and lance.[2]
