Recent Events

A Game of Thrones

Upon her arrival at the crossroads inn, Catelyn Stark remembers that when she was a child Masha always had a smile and a sweet cake for the children. Catelyn loved the cake but dreaded Masha's smile because it showed her blood-red teeth caused by her continuous eating of sourleaf.[1]

Masha does not want to get involved when Catelyn arrests Tyrion Lannister, so she lets Catelyn take him. When the Lannisters invades the riverlands, Tyrion's father, Lord Tywin Lannister, hangs Masha on a gibbet in the inn's yard as punishment. Tyrion sees her body when he arrives at the inn to meet with his father.[2]

A Storm of Swords

Masha's nephew takes over the inn.[3]

A Feast for Crows

Masha's nephew is killed by an unspecified nobleman. Afterwards, Masha's nieces Willow and Jeyne manage the inn and become associates of the brotherhood without banners.[4]


Masha: Don’t kill him here!
Tyrion: Don't kill him anywhere.[5]
