Recent Events

A Dance with Dragons

After Daenerys Targaryen takes Meereen, Skahaz becomes one of her councilors and shaves his black and red Ghiscari hair (which is often worn into fanciful shapes by Ghiscari) to show he has abandoned Old Meereen to serve the New Meereen and several of his followers do the same.[1]

Under Dany's orders Skahaz creates the Brazen Beasts, an organization composed of Shavepates and freedmen that serves as a city watch to Meereen. The beasts all wear brass masks in the shapes of fanciful beasts to protect their identities from the Sons of the Harpy who promised death to the families of any man who serves the Dragon Queen. Skahaz argues with Daenerys on several occassions over her refusal not to harm any of the Cupbearer/Hostages.

After Daenerys' marriage to Hizdahr zo Loraq,[2] Skahaz is removed as commander of the Brazen Beasts by Hizdahr.[3] Skahaz later suspects that Dany's new husband tried to poison her at the arena[4] Strong Belwas ends up eating poisoned locusts that may have been meant for Daenerys [4] and takes his suspicions to Ser Barristan Selmy.[5] Selmy, Skahaz and Grey Worm seize Hizdahr and take control of Meereen, preparing for war with Yunkai.[6][7]
