Renly Baratheon's Game of Thrones
Melisandre of Asshai
The mysterious Red Woman, who will burn us all.
Almost nothing is known of Melisandre, except that she hails from Asshai.
A high priestess in the faith of Rh’llor, Melisandre has settled into a key position in Stannis Baratheon’s court and, according to many a rumor, his bedchambers. She is the source of much fear, as many claim her to have mysterious and deadly powers granted to her by her god.
She was an attache on Davos Seaworth’s diplomatic mission to Renly Baratheon.
She escaped Dragonstone before the final battle with Stannis. Her foul magicks were responsible for many deaths that day as well as the maiming of Randyll Tarly.
