Craghas Drahar was a Myrish prince-admiral who commanded the armies of the Triarchy during the War for the Stepstones.[1]


Craghas commanded the armies of the Triarchy which turned westward to conquer the Stepstones, after the Triarchy had driven the Volantenes from the Disputed Lands. During this campaign he earned his sobriquet, "Crabfeeder", by ordering hundreds of pirates staked out on beaches to drown in the rising tide. For a time the Westerosi lords were pleased by the pirates' defeat, and were happy to pay the Triarchy's tolls for safe passage. Several years later, however, the avarice of Craghas and his Lysene and Tyroshi co-admirals had driven up the tolls to outrageous levels. Lord Corlys Velaryon was most hurt by these tolls, and partnered with the glory-hungry Prince Daemon Targaryen to drive the Triarchy's forces from the Stepstones and carve out a realm, attacking in 106 AC. The forces of the Triarchy lost many battles over the next two years, before Craghas was finally defeated in battle by Prince Daemon, who beheaded him with his Valyrian steel sword Dark Sister.[2][1]
