Daemon is handsome with a strong jaw, sky blue eyes and light sandy brown hair he has a close-cropped beard. He has dimples when he smiles.


Daemon took Arianne Martell's maidenhead when she was fourteen, he had not been much older so their couplings had been as clumsy as they were ardent. Still, Arianne recollects that it had been sweet. Although Arianne's father, Doran Martell eventually learned this he did not do anything.[2] Daemon asked Doran for Arianne's hand and was refused.[3]

He later squired for Oberyn Martell [4] and received his knighthood from the Red Viper himself. There are rumours that he also became Oberyn's lover, though this is seldom said to his face.[5] Things have never been the same between Arianne and Daemon after her father refused his offer for her hand.
