Recent Events

A Dance with Dragons

Snatch, along with the rest of the Second Sons, went over to the Yunkai'i when Brown Ben Plumm thought Daenerys Targaryen's cause was lost.[3][4]

Runaway slaves Tyrion and Penny make Snatch's acquaintance when they arrive to join up with the company. Snatch immediately recognizes them as the dwarfs that Ben tried to buy on the auction block. He notices the big man with them, but fails to recognize that it is Ser Jorah Mormont. Snatch allows the three of them through to see Ben.[2]

After Tyrion joins the Second Sons, he and Penny meet Snatch by the cook tent. He asks them if they’ve ever killed a man. Tyrion volunteers that he has, he swats them down like flies. When Snatch asks with what Tyrion replies, "An axe, a dagger, a choice remark. Though I'm deadliest with my crossbow".[5]

When Snatch asks how many men he’s killed with a crossbow Tyrion tells him "Nine" - as surely his father counts for a least that many. Snatch snorts "Nine" and spits out a mouthful of red slime. It lands on Tyrion’s knee. He whistles for Kem who comes running. He tells Kem to take Lord and Lady Imp to the wagons to have Hammer fix them up with some company steel. He then turns back to Tyrion and Penny, mocks the "nine", shakes his head, and walks away.[5]

As the Second Siege of Meereen commences Tyrion steps out of his tent and observes the scene before him. He spies Snatch chewing his sourleaf, making japes and scratching at his balls with his hook hand. Again something about his manner reminds Tyrion of Bronn.[6]

A Yunkish messenger arrives with orders from Gorzhak zo Eraz that the Second Sons are to go to the bay shore to defend against the ironborn. Snatch spits out a wad of well-chewed sourleaf out of the left side of his mouth. When Inkpots refuses the order as Brown Ben Plumm is absent, the messenger is enraged. Snatch then explains to the Yunkish rider that he's never once seen any horse capable of running on water.[6]

When Brown Ben Plumm returns from visiting Malazza, the Girl General, he tells Snatch to summon his captains.[6]

Now, a good trained warhorse, he'll charge a wall o' spears. Some will leap a fire ditch. But I never once seen any horse could run on water.[6]
