A Dance with Dragons

Because her Unsullied are being killed by the Sons of the Harpy, Queen Daenerys Targaryen commands Skahaz mo Kandaq to form a watch made of native Meereeneese to keep the peace in Meereen.[9] Skahaz mo Kandaq forms the Brazen Beasts from equal numbers of freedmen and shavepate Meereenese. They walk the streets of Meereen day and night, in dark hoods and brass masks.[1]

For every Brazen Beast killed by a Son of the Harpy, Skahaz would prefer to kill one of the Meereneese noble child hostages kept by Queen Daenerys Targaryen, but she rejects this advice.[10]

Skahaz has the Brazen Beasts follow Daenerys's betrothed Hizdahr zo Loraq and spy on him. Despite the lack of proof, Skahaz believes that Hizdahr is the Harpy.[7]

Daenerys visits Meereen's fighting pits for the first time, along with her new husband Hizdahr zo Loraq. The royal procession is led by a shavepate herald with a drum, followed by Brazen Beasts marching four abreast.[3]

After Daenerys disappears from the fighting pit, having flown away on Drogon's back,[3] King Hizdahr removes Skahaz from command of the Brazen Beasts and appoints his own cousin, Marghaz zo Loraq, in Skahaz's stead.[2] Nonetheless, the Brazen Beasts are still loyal to Skahaz[2] and follow his orders when Skahaz, Barristan Selmy, and Grey Worm arrest Hizdahr and seize control of Meereen.[8]

Prince Quentyn Martell, his friends Cletus Yronwood and Gerris Drinkwater, and sellswords of the Windblown disguise themselves as Brazen Beasts, in uniforms acquired by the Tattered Prince, in an effort to capture the dragons Rhaegal and Viserion.[4] During the attempt, four of the Brazen Beasts are killed, one by Yronwood and the rest by the Windblown. Of those who died, two were freedmen who had followed Daenerys since she took Astapor.[11]
