Title Septa

Moelle is a septa of the Faith of the Seven in King's Landing. She might be one of the Most Devout.[1][N 1]


Moelle has stiff white hair, a wrinkled face as sharp as an axe with lips pursed in perpetual disapproval, and small eyes that look constantly crinkled in suspicion. She has a stern expression.[3][4]

Recent Events

A Feast for Crows

Septa Moelle is escorted by six of the High Sparrow's knights when she comes before the Iron Throne to discuss the causes of Queen Margaery Tyrell's arrest. She explains that Margaery and her ladies cannot be released until their innocence has been proven, and reveals that she examined Margaery herself, and found the girl's maidenhead to no longer be intact.[3]

When Queen Regent Cersei Lannister is arrested, it is Moelle who brings her watery grey gruel on the first morning, and fish and bread that evening.[3]

A Dance with Dragons

Moelle is one of the septas who visit Cersei Lannister regularly. Cersei is awakened often with a demand of a confession. Moelle tells her it is her sins which are keeping her sleepless. She is present when Cersei declares she is ready to confess, and escorts her to the High Sparrow. Moelle is later amongst the septas who escort Ser Kevan Lannister to Cersei's cell.[4]

Moelle, together with Septas Unella and Scolera, are part of the escort for Cersei as she completes her walk of atonement through the streets of King's Landing. Moelle explains Cersei must walk it barefoot.[5]

  1. When asked if septas can be members of the Most Devout, Ran explained, "I'm inclined to think that the lack of evidence for them, other than the AFFC appendix which seems to have been corrected in ADWD, means no."[2]
