Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

When Jhogo returned to Vaes Tolorro after discovering Qarth, he was accompanied by three representatives of the city, one of them being Xaro.[2] He escorts Daenerys to Qarth, where he offers her use of his palace during her stay. Xaro offers Daenerys his knowledge, telling her which members of the Pureborn to bribe, the ways of reaching the Pureborn and who to go to next after she was rejected by them. After the destruction of the House of the Undying, Xaro offers to take Daenerys sailing around the Jade Sea, but is rejected. He then tells her to leave the city.

A Dance with Dragons

Xaro arrives on his ship Silken Cloud to Meereen to visit Daenerys Targaryen. He brings forth a gift of thirteen ships stating that they are hers on the condition she sails from Slaver's Bay to Westeros as her presence has disrupted the slave trade which many of the Free Cities such as Volantis and Qarth depend on for their economies. Daenerys has them inspected but later refuses the offer. Xaro's reply was to leave an iron gauntlet on a silk pillow declaring that Qarth has declared war on Daenerys.


He is a bald man with jewels in his nose.[3]
