Appearance

See also: Images of Maggy

Maggy was squat and warty, with crusty yellow eyes, no teeth, and pale green jowls.[1] She spoke in a croaking,[2] accented voice.[3]

Westerosi could not pronounce her real name,[4] which was long and foreign sounding.[1] Some considered her a priestess[4] or a half-mad witch woman.[5]

Maggy conducted business in a dark green tent with a tall peaked roof.[1]

History

Maggy came to Lannisport as a younger woman,[1] brought by her husband who had been trading saffron and pepper in Essos.[4] Lord Tytos Lannister ennobled their merchant son, the founder of House Spicer, as a petty lord.[1] Maggy was the grandmother of Ser Rolph, Ser Samwell, and Sybell. Many people of Lannisport visited Maggy for her cures and love potions.[4]

When she was ten,[6] Cersei Lannister became enamored with Prince Rhaegar Targaryen during the tournament in honor of Viserys's birth.[7] Cersei and two friends, Jeyne Farman and Melara Hetherspoon, sought out Maggy to learn their futures and which men they would marry, but Jeyne fled at the sight of Maggy's yellow eyes. Maggy initially refused to tell the futures of the remaining girls, but grudgingly agreed faced with Cersei's threats. Using a twisted iron dagger, Maggy drew and drank blood from the girls' thumbs.[1]

Maggy allowed Cersei three questions and made the prophecy of the valonqar (High Valyrian for "little brother"), which haunted Cersei thereafter. When Melara took her turn, Maggy predicted that she would die young, and hinted that it would be by Cersei's hand. Dissatisfied, Cersei threw a jar of potion into Maggy's eyes and fled, leaving Maggy to curse them both. Melara, who begged Cersei never to speak of the prophecies, soon drowned in a well.[1] Cersei never told of Maggy to her father, Lord Tywin Lannister, who would have cut out Maggy's tongue, or her twin, Jaime.[2] Cersei has since often dreamed of Maggy and her prophecies.[1]
