Lady Mysaria was a dancer from Lys. Lyseni prostitutes and her rivals dubbed her Misery, the White Worm, because of her very pale appearance and her reputation.[1][2]


Mysaria was taken as a lover by Prince Daemon Targaryen in King's Landing, and she quickly became his favorite. Around 105 AC, Mysaria became pregnant with Daemon's child while living at Dragonstone. Daemon gave her a dragon egg for the child, which angered King Viserys I Targaryen. The king ordered Daemon to return the egg and send Mysaria back to Lys. On her return to Lys, she lost the child during a storm on the narrow sea.[1]

During the Dance of the Dragons civil war, Mysaria was involved in the assassination of Prince Jaehaerys, a son of King Aegon II Targaryen, when Prince Daemon desired revenge for the death of his stepson Prince Lucerys Velaryon. She was Daemon's go-between, a "pale stranger" whom he trusted, who hired the assassins, Blood and Cheese.[3][4]

At some point Mysaria became Daemon's mistress of whisperers.[1][2] Lady Mysaria gave warnings to Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen during the riot of King's Landing.[3]


Brynden Rivers was a Hand of the King, but also said to have "rivaled Lady Misery" as a master of whispers.[5]
