House of Ghazeen
|House of Ghazeen|
|Seat||Pyramid of Ghazeen, Meereen|
The House of Ghazeen is one of the ancient slaving families of Meereen.
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. One of those hostages is Azzak of the House of Ghazeen. 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.
When several Meereenese ships join the blockade of Meereen, Skahaz mo Kandaq presents Daenerys a list with the names of the Meereenese captains and which families they belong to. The House of Ghazeen is among the names.
When Daenerys disappears on Drogon's back and Ser Barristan Selmy seizes control of Meereen in her name, he also refuses to allow any harm to come to the child hostages, even though Skahaz mo Kandaq wants to kill them in return for the deaths of the hostages Daenerys had granted to the besiegers of Meereen.
