Chains is a sellsword in service to the Golden Company. As a serjeant, he is a high-ranking officer.[1] His given name is unknown.

Character and Appearance

A brusque man, Chains is taller than Young John Mudd and wears two rusted chains across his chest. Instead of a blade, he uses five feet of heavy linked iron as a whip.[2]

Recent Events

A Dance with Dragons

Chains, like the rest of the company, swears his allegiance to Aegon Targaryen in Volon Therys before they invade Westeros.[3]

The Winds of Winter

This information has thus far been released in a sample chapter for The Winds of Winter, and might therefore not be in finalized form. Keep in mind that the content as described below is still subject to change.

Chains and Young John Mudd hold Mistwood for the Golden Company. They keep Lady Mary Mertyns under house arrest and host Arianne Martell's party for a night.[2]

While escorting Arianne part of the way to Griffin's Roost, Chains reveals that a forefather fought in the Battle of the Redgrass Field and became a member of Aegor Rivers' Golden Company of exiles. Raised in Essos, Chains had never been in Westeros before the invasion.[2]
