Lady Serala of Myr, known as the Lace Serpent, was the wife of Lord Denys Darklyn, the last Darklyn lord of Duskendale.[1]


The smallfolk blame Serala for the fall of House Darklyn, claiming she put the seed of rebellion in her husband's ear with Myrish poison, leading to the Defiance of Duskendale. Her actual role in the matter is not truly known, but from that belief held by the populace came her name, the Lace Serpent.[1]

During the Defiance, her husband, Lord Denys Darklyn, made the mistake of holding captive King Aerys II Targaryen. Following his liberation and the end of the Defiance, Aerys went on a killing rampage. Serala's husband and all of his house were beheaded, while she was burned alive, though her tongue was torn out first, along with her female parts, with which it was said she enslaved her lordly husband. Half of Duskendale stated that Aerys was still too kind to her, believing the Defiance would have never happened had Lord Denys married a Stokeworth or a Staunton instead.[1][2]
