Alayaya, sometimes called Yaya, is a prostitute working in King's Landing at the whorehouse owned by her mother, Chataya. She was born in King's Landing in 283 AL.[1]


She is a very beautiful young black woman, who speaks the common language with a very light Summer Islands accent. She is taller than Shae but not as tall as her own mother.[2]

[5] Just before the Battle of the Blackwater, she is abducted by the Kettleblack brothers at Queen Cersei Lannister's demand in order to pressure Tyrion.[6] She is freed afterwards by Tywin Lannister who had her publicly whipped. As an effort to repay her sacrifice and pain, Tyrion gave her some jewels.[7]
