Bellegere Otherys is the courtesan in Braavos called the Black Pearl. She is descended from the first Black Pearl of Braavos, also named Bellegere Otherys, and Aegon IV Targaryen. Her mother, Bellonara Otherys, was the previous Black Pearl before her.[1]

Appearance

Bellegere is young and lovely, with black hair, light brown skin and full breasts. A Braavosi girl named Mercy believes "Brown Pearl" would be more fitting, due to Bellegere's light brown skin color.[2]
