|Alias||The Last Valyrian|
Samarro Saan, known as the Last Valyrian, was a Lysene pirate who became one of the infamous Band of Nine, the instigators of the War of the Ninepenny Kings. He is an ancestor of Salladhor Saan.
The Band of Nine were a group of merchants, sellswords, and pirates, who joined together to carve kingdoms out for themselves. Samarro Saan was one of them, a notorious pirate from a notorious family of pirates from Lys.
Behind the Scenes
In early chapter drafts, Samarro was said to have gifted old Valyrian scrolls to Maelys I Blackfyre containing information to wake dragons out of stone. This information was scrapped entirely from George's published works, however.
