Brazen Beast in Cat Mask by Robert O'Leary

The Brazen Beasts are an army of watchmen formed by Daenerys Targaryen after she conquers Meereen.


The Brazen Beasts wear brass masks over their faces which are in the shape of animals over the masks they wear hoods and cloaks patched together from different colored clothes to represent the many-colored bricks of Meereen. All wear pleated skirts and leather sandals.[1]

Some examples of the animal masks seen are bear, boar, bull, jackals, hawks, herons, locust, seal, rat, lion, tiger, ape, owl, cat, serpent, wolf, basilisk and fox.

A Dance with Dragons

The Brazen Beasts wear brass masks in the shape of different animals to protect the member's identity from reprisal attacks by the Sons of the Harpy. The Beasts are made up of a mix of Shavepates and Freedmen. They are commanded by Skahaz mo Kandaq.

When Daenerys disappears on Drogon's back[1] the new king Hizdahr zo Loraq appoints his cousin Marghaz zo Loraq as the Brazen Beasts's new commander.[2] However, the Beasts still obey Skahaz mo Kandaq and turn on Hizdahr when Skahaz, Ser Barristan Selmy and Grey Worm seize him and take control of Meereen.

Several of the Brazen Beasts are killed by the Windblown when Quentyn Martell tries to capture the dragons Rhaegal and Viserion.[3]


“The Beasts are still mine. Do not forget it.”

- the Shavepate, to Ser Barristan
