Yezzan zo Qaggaz is an extremely wealthy slave trader and is one of the Wise Masters from Yunkai. He is said to be the richest man in Yunkai and has great influence because of this.


Appearance and Character

He has yellow eyes and is so morbidly obese he can no longer stand, and is described as being large enough to make four of Illyrio Mopatis. He is sickly and cannot hold his water so always smells of urine that even perfume cannot hide. He wears Yellow silk tokars with gold fringe. He is obsessed with grotesques and often purchases slaves with physical deformities to add to his "collection". While overweight he is still shrewd and intelligent, a trait some of the other Wise Masters don't share.


According to Sweets, Yezzan contracted some disease ten years ago while in Sothoryos and has been dying ever since. If anyone makes him forget this even for a little while they are well rewarded by him [1].

A Dance with Dragons

The Windblown, a sellsword company that was hired by Yunkai, mock him as the "Yellow Whale".[2]

When peace was made between Meereen and Yunkai, a slave market was set up outside Meereen.[3] Yezzan purchased several slaves including Tyrion Lannister, Penny and Ser Jorah Mormont and gives them to the charge of his henchman Nurse.[1] Yezzan was one of the few Yunkai lords who wished to honor the peace between Yunkai and Meereen. He later died of the pale mare disease that was spreading through out the Yunkai siege lines and several of his slaves used the opportunity to escape.[4]

Tyrion Lannister and several of the other slaves, thought him "not that bad" compared to some of the other slavers. He treated his slaves well as long as they obeyed and caused no trouble and his slaves were usually well fed and looked after.


His eyes are yellow, and he stinks.
Sweets, telling Penny what the master is like.

Count yourselves fortunate, for Yezzan is a kindly and benevolent master.
