Appearance and Character
A Dance with Dragons
With the Sons of the Harpy killings continuing, Queen Daenerys Targaryen has every noble family of Meereen who is of dubious loyalty send her a child as a hostage. These children are made her cupbearers. Qezza is one of them, along with her brother Grazhar.
Daenerys hopes having noble children as hostages will halt the killings, but it does not. However, Daenerys refuses to allow any harm to come to the children. She grows fond of them all, and ignores Skahaz mo Kandaq's counsel to kill one for every death done by the Sons of the Harpy.
When Galazza Galare visits Daenerys in her chambers in the Great Pyramid for a private supper, Daenerys has Qezza and Grazhar serve. Galazza greets her young cousins with kisses and asks if they have been good. Daenerys notes that Qezza sings for her sometimes.
Ser Barristan Selmy plots with Skahaz mo Kandaq to seize control of Meereen in the queen's name. Although Skahaz wants to kill the cupbearers in return for the deaths of the hostages Daenerys had granted to the besiegers of Meereen, Barristan also refuses to allow any harm to come to the children. Qezza is in Hizdahr zo Loraq's chambers when Barristan arrests him and kills his bodyguard, the pit fighter Khrazz. Qezza cries at the sight, and an older girl, Jezhene, comforts her.
