A Dance with Dragons

Garth refers to Davos Seaworth as a dead man during his imprisonment, constantly serving as a reminder to Davos that his life hangs in the balance now that Lord Wyman Manderly commanded that his head and hands be cut off.[1]

Garth introduces "his ladies" to Davos. The Whore is a rod of cold black iron, while Lady Lu is a large sharp axe. The other keepers tell him that Garth spends his days honing Lady Lu. Davos resolves to go to his death as a knight, asking only that they take his head before his hands.[1]

Fortunately for Davos, the command to execute him is a sham; Robett Glover eventually appears at his door and politely asks him to follow him.[1]


The Whore don't look like much, but when I heat her up red-hot and let her touch your cock, you'll cry for mother. And this here's my Lady Lu. It's her who'll take your head and hands, when Lord Wyman sends down word.[1]
