The Winds of Winter
The Red Lamb is a former slave freed by Daenerys Targaryen, who became a squire of Ser Barristan Selmy, and is now a newly made knight. In Meereen, Barristan sets out to rally the troops during the siege. His knights are to accompany him, and when Barristan tells them there is no shame in fear, the Red Lamb replies that he is not afraid of death. He wishes to face the Great Shepherd, and ask him why he allows his people to be lambs in a world of wolves.
All men are one flock, or so we are taught. The Great Shepherd sent me to earth to heal his lambs, wherever I might find them.
The Great Shepherd guards the flock.
I am not afraid. Should I die, I will go before the Great Shepherd of Lhazar, break his crook across my knee, and say to him, "Why did you make your people lambs, when the world is full of wolves?" Then I will spit into his eye.
