A Dance with Dragons

Skahaz mo Kandaq expresses his belief to a skeptical Daenerys Targaryen that the Sons of the Harpy are being led by a secret overlord, a noble general he calls the Harpy.[1] The Brazen Beasts are commanded to capture Sons of the Harpy, who reveal names under torture, but according to Daenerys the names are simply too many.[1]

When Hizdahr zo Loraq is able to halt the murders committed by the Sons of the Harpy for twenty-six days in a row, Skahaz tells Daenerys that Hizdahr might be the Harpy, and that if he is not, he is aware of the Harpy's identity. He asks permission to "put Hizdahr to the question", but Daenerys refuses the notion, insisting no harm may come to Hizdahr.[1]

After Daenerys disappeared from Meereen upon Drogon, Skahaz has a secret meeting with Ser Barristan Selmy. He lists the Harpy, Reznak mo Reznak, and Hizdahr among the friends of the Wise Masters of Yunkai.[2] Skahaz is still not convinced that Hizdahr is not the Harpy.[2] When Barristan goes to arrest Hizdahr, he asks the king whether or not he is indeed the Harpy, insisting that Hizdahr provide the Harpy's name if it is someone else. Hizdahr is deeply offended by the questions.[3] Hizdahr is arrested by Barristan, causing the Sons of the Harpy to resume their killings.[4] When meeting with Galazza Galare, Barristan wonders to himself whether Hizdahr was able to stop the murders committed by the Harpy's Sons earlier because he himself is the Harpy.[3]


The Harpy wants Hizdahr free, so he has sent his sons back into the streets with knives in hand.[4]

Meereen would always be the Harpy's city, and Daenerys could not be a harpy.[5]
