Recent Events

A Storm of Swords

Septa Nysterica accompanies Lady Margaery Tyrell to King's Landing for her wedding to King Joffrey I Baratheon. Sansa Stark meets Septa Nysterica, along with Margaery's other ladies, when she is invited to a supper at the Maidenvault.[1]

A Feast for Crows

After Ser Osney Kettleblack comes forward with claims that he slept with Margaery, Nysterica is one of four septas to examine her maidenhead. The four septas find the maidenhead not intact, which becomes the grounds for Margaery's arrest. Nysterica is confined to a penitent's cell for failure to do her duty.[2]


It is speculated that Nysterica may be a daughter of Elys Waynwood and Alys Arryn, since one of their daughters became a septa after her face was terribly scarred by the pox.[3]
