Character Bio

Ser Davos Seaworth photo
Ser Davos Seaworth, called the Onion Knight and sometimes Shorthand, is the common-born head of the newly founded House Seaworth and was formerly known as the most notorious and most elusive smuggler in the Seven Kingdoms. In his smuggling days, he was said to handle a ship at night better than anyone. Before the events of the series, he earned his knighthood by smuggling fish and onions to the besieged Stannis Baratheon and his army during Robert Baratheon's rebellion. Before knighting him, Stannis removed the last joints from four fingers on Davos' left hand as punishment for years of smuggling; believing these joints bought his wife and seven sons a better future, Davos keeps them in a pouch around his neck for luck until they are lost in the Battle of the Blackwater.

He loyally supports Stannis' claim to the throne and his honesty and willingness to voice his unaltered opinion make him Stannis' most trusted adviser, though Stannis often dislikes what he hears. However, Davos is a follower of the Faith of the Seven and cannot bring himself to accept or trust the priestess Melisandre and her god R'hllor. He does not object to her because Stannis is also a follower of R'hllor. He fights in the Battle of the Blackwater, an attack on King's Landing that ends in the slaughter of Stannis' troops; Davos' four eldest are killed and Davos himself seemingly perishes.

He is revealed to have barely survived. He blames Melisandre for the deaths of his sons and plans to kill her, but she foresees the attempt and has him jailed. He learns to read and write and inadvertently reads the Night's Watch's letter calling for aid. After he frees King Roberts last bastard Stannis is ready to execute him but he brings up the point that they will need him in the upcoming battle and Melisandre is the one who saves him.
