It has a very high mortality rate, having been described as killing three of each four men in armies.[1]

The Bloody Flux spreads through Astapor[4] and comes from there with the refugees that seek protection in Meereen.[1] The disease ravages both Meereen and its siegers from Yunkai and New Ghis.[5][6][7] The first known case in Meereen was brought over by a dying Astapori rider atop a pale mare, which gave the plague its nickname.[1]
