Appearance

See also: Images of Moon Boy

Moon Boy is pie-faced, and wears the motley clothing common to fools.[2][3] He is a simpleton, though Sansa Stark and Dontos Hollard suspect him of not being as simple as he seems.[2][4]

Recent Events

A Game of Thrones

He performs during the royal feast during the Tourney of the Hand, making witticisms about the various nobles in attendance and walking on stilts. Sansa wonders if he truly is the simpleton he claims to be, his song about the High Septon (the fat one) even makes Septa Mordane laugh.[2]

A Clash of Kings

When Dontos Hollard is made a fool he claims to Sansa Stark that Moon Boy is in the employment of Varys. Dontos claims to hear all sorts of things as a fool he never heard when he was a knight and claims Moon Boy is not as simple as he appears.[4]

A Storm of Swords

He performs at King Joffrey's wedding to Margaery Tyrell.[5] After Jaime confesses to Tyrion that Tysha was not a whore Tyrion is so furious he tells Jaime that Cersei has been having sex with various men, one of whom may be Moon Boy.

A Feast for Crows

At Darry Jaime confronts Lancel about Cersei. Lancel admits that he had sex with her. Jaime wonders how many more men his sister has slept with and then wonders if Tyrion's comment about Moon Boy was just a gibe. Jaime later has a dream where he had found his sister having sex with Moon Boy, then he kills the fool and smashes Cersei’s teeth to splinters.

King Tommen is permitted to name the last five of Cersei's dromonds and chooses Moon Boy for one - but is dissuaded by Lord Aurane. Moon Boy is present when Cersei Lannister hears that the Faith of the Seven have arrested Margaery Tyrell. He appears dumbstruck.[6]
