Blood was a brutal, hulking swordsman.[1]

History

Once a serjeant in the City Watch of King's Landing, Blood lost his gold cloak for beating a whore to death whilst in a drunken rage. He spent time in Flea Bottom.[1]

After Prince Aemond Targaryen killed Prince Lucerys Velaryon at Storm's End, the blacks wanted vengeance against the greens. Blood and the ratcatcher called Cheese were employed by Mysaria, Prince Daemon Targaryen's spymaster, to slay one of the sons of Aemond's older brother, King Aegon II Targaryen.[1]

Cheese led Blood into the Red Keep through a forgotten passageway, and creeping through walls, they entered the chambers of Aegon's mother, Queen Alicent Hightower, in the Tower of the Hand. After Cheese bound and gagged the Dowager Queen and Blood strangled her bedmaid, the assassins waited for Aegon's wife, Queen Helaena Targaryen, and her children to arrive.[1]

Blood killed Helaena's guardsman once she arrived, and Cheese grabbed her youngest son, Prince Maelor Targaryen. Cheese asked Helaena which of her sons she wanted them to kill. Helaena offered herself but Blood refused, stating it had to be a son. When Helaena prevaricated, Cheese warned her that Blood would rape her six-year-old daughter, Princess Jaehaera Targaryen. Although Helaena eventually named her youngest son, Maelor, Blood beheaded Prince Jaehaerys instead. Blood and Cheese then fled through the secret passages with the prince's head in hand.[1]

Blood was seized two days later at the Gate of the Gods while attempting to bring Jaehaerys's head to Daemon at Harrenhal and collect his reward. Under torture, he admitted to having been hired by a woman whose description matched Mysaria. Blood died on the thirteenth day of torture. Ser Luthor Largent had the gold cloaks search for Mysaria and Cheese, but no trace was found of them.[1] Aegon II wanted to attack Dragonstone to avenge his son's murder, but Ser Criston Cole instead suggested sending Ser Arryk Cargyll to infiltrate the castle.[2]
