Allegiance House Greyjoy (forcibly as a thrall)

The dusky woman is a comely mute. She was a gift from Euron Greyjoy to his brother Victarion Greyjoy prior to Victarion embarking with the Iron Fleet for Meereen.[1]

Appearance and Character

The dusky woman is beautiful, she has brown skin that is a charcoal-and-earth color.[1] She is missing her tongue, as Euron cut it out before giving her to Victarion. She is quiet, biddable and compliant.[1] Her origins and name are unknown. She may come from Naath as the Naathi people are described as having "dusky skin" and are widely sought after by slavers who consider them to make the best slaves.[2][3]


Euron captured her from a slaver bound for Lys.[4]
