Recent Events

A Dance with Dragons

After Daenerys Targaryen takes Meereen, Reznak serves her as seneschal, though Dany is often mistrustful of the man. Her suspicion grows after Quaithe's warning to "beware the perfumed seneschal";[2] it is unknown if this refers to Reznak or not. Ser Barristan Selmy shares his queen's mistrust of the man, believing that a man should smell of sweat, not perfume.[3] Reznak opposes much of the advice Skahaz mo Kandaq gives Daenerys on how to handle the Sons of the Harpy.[5] When Hizdahr zo Loraq becomes King of Meereen[6] after Daenerys's disappearance,[7] Reznak is one of the few of Daenerys's council who are not dismissed.[6] When Skahaz and Barristan agree to take over the rule of Meereen, they decide to take Reznak into custody until they can be certain of his loyalty. However, during the night of the coupe, the dragons Viserion and Rhaegal escape. It is Reznak who rushes to Hizdahr's chambers to inform him of this, while Barristan is present. His appearance makes Barristan wonder if something went wrong in their plans.[8] It is implied that Reznak was eventually taken into custody,[9] following Hizdahr's own arrest.
