Qotho is a bloodrider to Khal Drogo.[1]

In the television adaptation Game of Thrones, Qotho is portrayed by Dar Salim.[2]


Qotho is known as the most sadistic of Drogo's bloodriders. He has cruel eyes and quick hands that like to hurt. He leaves bruises on Doreah’s pale skin, and sometimes makes Irri sob in the night. Even his horses react to him with fear.[3]
