Lead link in a maester's chain, by Matthew Starbuck © Fantasy Flight Games

Lead is a gray heavy base metal.


Northwestern Essos and the Iron Islands are rich in lead ores.[1][2][3]

Lead is one of the metals used by maesters for their chains; the subject it represents is unknown. The chains of Armen the Acolyte, Maester Aemon and Grand Maester Pycelle have links of lead.[4][5][6] The ring, mask, and rod of Archmaester Theobald are also made of lead.[7]
