A Dance with Dragons

Lemore is a crewmember of the Shy Maid. During its journey she frequently bathes naked in the clean water of the river Rhoyne, which pleases Tyrion Lannister. As she bathes Tyrion notices stretch marks on her belly, implying she has given birth at some point. Tyrion believe she was not always a septa, or at least not a chaste one.[2]

When the Shy Maid reaches Volantis Lemore changes out of her white septa's robes and disguises herself as a merchant's daughter, as the robes would have drawn notice in Volantis, whose main faith is R'hllor. Tyrion suspects there is more to Lemore than meets the eye. See also Theories.

Clad again in her septa's robes, Lemore accompanies Young Griff, actually Aegon Targaryen, to the Stormlands.[3]

Quotes about Lemore

Still, a curious man might wonder why some sellsword's whelp would need a soiled septa to instruct him in the Faith, or a chainless maester to tutor him in history and tongues.[5]
