Appearance and Character
- See also: Images of Alayaya
Alayaya is a beautiful young Summer Islander who speaks the Common Tongue with only a light accent. She is taller than Shae but not as tall as her own mother. Of her, Tyrion feels that "a sweeter, braver, more innocent girl he had seldom met".
A Game of Thrones
A Clash of Kings
Thanks to Varys, who shows him a secret passage between a small stable and Chataya's establishment, Tyrion Lannister uses Alayaya as a cover for his nocturnal visits to Shae. She spends this free time pretending to be learning how to read with the Hand of the King. Just before the Battle of the Blackwater, she is abducted by the Kettleblack brothers at Queen Cersei Lannister's demand in order to pressure Tyrion. She is freed afterwards by Lord Tywin Lannister, who has her publicly whipped. As an effort to repay her sacrifice and pain, Tyrion gave her some jewels.
