Appearance and Character

See also: Images of Nymeria Sand

Nymeria is twenty-five years old, slim and slender as a willow, with straight black hair worn in a long braid which pulls back from a widow's peak. She has dark eyes, high cheekbones, and full lips.[2] Areo Hotah describes Nym as having pale white skin in A Feast for Crows[2] but mentions her olive skin in A Dance with Dragons.[3] Nymeria has all the beauty that her elder sister Obara Sand lacks [2] but is no less deadly. She usually can conceal a dozen daggers on her person and is extremely skilled with the blades.

Recent Events

A Feast for Crows

Nymeria was abed with the Fowler twins, Jeyne and Jennelyn, when she was told of the death of her father, Prince Oberyn Martell. She goes to see Oberyn's brother, Prince Doran Martell, demanding vengeance for the death of her father. Nym wants to assassinate Lord Tywin Lannister, his children Queen Cersei and Ser Jaime Lannister, and his grandchild, King Tommen Baratheon. After visits from Nym's other sisters, Doran has the Sand Snakes arrested and confined in the Spear Tower of Sunspear.[2]

A Dance with Dragons

Nym and her sisters are released and are present at the feast at Sunspear when Ser Balon Swann presents the head of Ser Gregor Clegane to Prince Doran. She refuses to drink when Ricasso raises a toast to King Tommen. Doran sends Lady Nymeria to King's Landing to take the vacant Dornish seat on the small council.[3]
