Mero, better known as the Titan's Bastard, is the commander of the Second Sons, a sellsword company.
Appearance and Character
A Braavosi, Mero is tall with pale green eyes and a long, bushy red-gold beard. While he appears amiable he has an evil reputation, which has made it hard for the Second Sons to find work under his command.
A Storm of Swords
Mero is the commander of the Second Sons when Daenerys Targaryen arrives at Yunkai with her host. Daenerys invites the sellswords hired by the city to meet with her. She and Mero trade insults; Daenerys refuses to surrender and Mero refuses to switch sides. Mero accepts a wagonload of wine on Daenerys's condition they drink to her health.
When Mero leaves, Arstan Whitebeard advises Daenerys that Mero has an evil reputation. Jorah Mormont agrees, adding that the Second Sons are an old and good company, but under Mero they have become as bad as the Brave Companions, proving as dangerous to their employers as to his foes, and that none of the Free Cities will hire him, hence why he and the company are out in Slaver's Bay.
Mero flees during the Battle of Yunkai and hides in the gathered refugees that follow Daenerys to Meereen, shaving his beard to disguise his appearance. When Daenerys rides through the refugee camps, Mero attempts to kill her but is stopped by Arstan and then torn apart by the freedmen in the camps.
