Blood is the alias of a man who, during the Dance of the Dragons, slew six year old Prince Jaehaerys Targaryen, King Aegon's firstborn son and heir, next in line to the Iron Throne. [1] Blood's true name is lost to history.

Appearance & Character

He was a big, brutal hulking swordsman and most likely a rapist.


Blood was an serjeant in the City Watch. He lost his gold cloak for beating a whore to death whilst in a drunken rage. He spent time in Flea Bottom. After the death of Prince Lucerys Velaryon, Blood, along with Cheese was employed by Prince Daemon's go-between to slay one of Aegon III' sons.

Once Blood and Cheese confronted Queen Helaena in the Tower of the Hand they told her to name which son she wanted them to kill. Although Queen Helaena eventually named her youngest son Maelor they killed Jaehaerys instead. It was Blood who slew Jaehaerys. He struck off the boy's head with a single blow. After killing Prince Blood and Cheese did no further harm to Queen Helaena or her surviving children and fled with the prince's head in hand.
