Game of Thrones

Season Five

Malko speaks the Common Tongue of Westeros and appears to be knowledgeable of Westerosi history, such as Robert's Rebellion and the Siege of Pyke.

Malko's ship anchors on the shoreline while on a voyage to Volantis so that the slaver's can replenish their water supply. The slavers discover Jorah and Tyrion and capture them. Malko plans on using Jorah as a galley slave and orders Tyrion to be killed and his penis cut off, as dwarfs' penises are believed to be magic. Tyrion warns Malko that no merchant will believe him unless he sees the source of the penis. Then he attempts to convince Malko to take them to Meereen to the fighting pits where Jorah can prove his worth. After hearing Jorah killed Qotho, a Dothraki bloodrider, Malko seems to change his mind.

Once he has arrived in Slaver's Bay, Malko proceeds to auction off Jorah while changing details to make his story sound more impressive, including Jorah killing Khal Drogo instead of Qotho and taking part in the attack on "Spike" while wielding a flaming sword instead of Thoros of Myr. He manages to sell Jorah to Yezzan zo Qaggaz, a Meereenese Great Master for 20 of an unspecified coin. As Yezzan leads Jorah away, Tyrion desperately attempts to also be sold to Yezzan. Malko scoffs at this, saying that at least Tyrion is funny. Tyrion proceeds to get gain control of his chain and beat the slaver who was holding him. Yezzan, intrigued with Tyrion ends up buying him for an unspecified amount because he's funny.
