A Dance with Dragons
With the Sons of the Harpy killings continuing, Queen Daenerys Targaryen has every noble family of Meereen who is of dubious loyalty send her a child as a hostage. These children are made her cupbearers. Miklaz is one of them.
Daenerys hopes having noble children as hostages will halt the killings, but it does not. However, Daenerys refuses to allow any harm to come to the children. She grows fond of them all, and ignores Skahaz mo Kandaq's counsel to kill one for every death done by the Sons of the Harpy. Ser Barristan Selmy instructs the boys in the ways of Westerosi chivalry.
Ser Barristan Selmy plots with Skahaz mo Kandaq to seize control of Meereen in the queen's name. Although Skahaz wants to kill the cupbearers in return for the deaths of the hostages Daenerys had granted to the besiegers of Meereen, Barristan also refuses to allow any harm to come to the children.
Miklaz is in Hizdahr zo Loraq's chambers when Barristan comes to visit him, and Hizdahr sends the cupbearer for wine, along with Draqaz. Hizdahr threatens Miklaz that if he finds his flagon empty again, he might have to switch his "pretty" buttocks. The two cupbearers return to find that Barristan has arrested Hizdahr and killed his bodyguard, the pit fighter Khrazz. Miklaz stutteringly tells Barristan that Reznak mo Reznak wants the king to come at once, as the dragons Viserion and Rhaegal have been set free.
