Recent Events

A Dance with Dragons

With the Sons of the Harpy killings continuing, Queen Daenerys Targaryen has every noble family of Meereen who is of dubious loyalty send her a child as a hostage. These children are made her cupbearers.[4] Grazhar is one of them, along with his sister Qezza.[3]

Daenerys hopes having noble children as hostages will halt the killings, but it does not. However, Daenerys refuses to allow any harm to come to the children. She grows fond of them all, and ignores Skahaz mo Kandaq's counsel to kill one for every death done by the Sons of the Harpy.[3]

When Galazza Galare visits Daenerys in her chambers in the Great Pyramid for a private supper, Daenerys has Grazhar and Qezza serve. Galazza greets her young cousins with kisses and asks if they have been good. Daenerys notes that Ser Barristan Selmy is instructing Grazhar and the other boys in the ways of Westerosi chivalry.[3]

When Daenerys disappears on Drogon's back, the cupbearers continue to serve her husband, King Hizdahr zo Loraq.[5]

Ser Barristan Selmy plots with Skahaz mo Kandaq to seize control of Meereen in the queen's name. Although Skahaz wants to kill the cupbearers in return for the deaths of the hostages Daenerys had granted to the besiegers of Meereen, Barristan also refuses to allow any harm to come to the children.[1]

After the death of Prince Quentyn Martell, Barristan enters the queen's chambers and finds Grazhar and five other cupbearers playing a child's game, sitting in a circle on the floor as they take turns spinning a dagger. Barristan has Grazhar and Azzak guard the door in expectation of the visit of Galazza Galare. During the meeting, Skahaz mo Kandaq bursts through the door, and when Grazhar tries to block his path, he slams the boy aside.[6]
