Sandoq the Shadow was a former pit fighter in service to Lady Larra of Lys and House Rogare during the reign of King Aegon III Targaryen.

Appearance and Character

Sandoq stood nearly seven feet tall, with black skin and hair. His face was horribly disfigured; it bore numerous thin white scars, and his lips and tongue had been removed. He typically hid his disfigurement under a black silk veil.[1]

Sandoq the Shadow was illiterate, but had a gift for music, playing a stringed instrument of goldenheart and ebony.[1]

Sandoq wielded a great curved sword of Valyrian steel with a dragonbone hilt, as well as a tall black shield of nightwood, boiled hide, and iron.[1]

History

Sandoq's history before his service to House Rogare is uncertain, but it is said that he had been a veteran pit fighter in Meereen, with a hundred wins to his name.[1]

In 135 AC, during the plot against the Rogare family amidst the Lysene Spring, Sandoq the Shadow protected his lady's husband, Prince Viserys, and his brother, King Aegon III, from Ser Amaury Peake of the Kingsguard and a dozen guardsmen, slaying them all on the drawbridge of Maegor's Holdfast. Thus began an eighteen-day standoff before the plot unraveled.[1]

Sandoq, alongside several of the white cloaks, accompanied King Aegon upon his sixteenth nameday when he entered the small council chambers. Sandoq's presence unnerved the Hand of the King and the regents as the king dismissed them from his service.[1]

Quotes

Sandoq is no beast. He cannot speak, but he hears and he obeys.[1]
