Sarella Sand is the fourth eldest of the Sand Snakes, the bastard daughters of Oberyn Martell.[2] Her mother is the captain of the Feathered Kiss.[3]

Appearance and Character

Sarella has a reputation for insatiable curiosity.[4][5] She loves Oldtown.[2]

History

Sarella is Prince Oberyn Martell's fourth daughter. Her mother, the trader captain of the Feathered Kiss,[3] comes from the Summer Isles.[6]

Sarella sometimes played with her cousin, Princess Arianne Martell, at the Water Gardens, although Arianne was always closer to Sarella's half-sister, Tyene Sand.[5]

Sarella once visited the abandoned holdfast Shandystone with her father, Tyene, and Arianne. Interested in the history of the ruins, Sarella turned over rocks and brushed sand off its mosaics.[4]

Quotes

Areo: What of Sarella? She is a woman grown, almost twenty.
Doran: Unless she returns to Dorne, there's naught I can do about Sarella save pray that she shows more sense than her sisters. Leave her to her... game.[2]
