About Him

Living... on Dragonstone with Stannis Baratheon and his priestess advisor Melisandre. Stannis claims that he is the rightful heir to the throne, as the current king Joffrey is not, in fact, the natural-born son of Stannis’ brother, the late King Robert Baratheon. Davos is one of Stannis’ oldest and most faithful servants, and will do whatever his master asks of him. 

Profession... trusted advisor to Stannis. But formerly Davos was the greatest smuggler in the Seven Kingdoms. Davos actually first met Stannis when he cut off a few of Davos’ fingers as a punishment for smuggling. While it seems like a rocky way to start a relationship, the two men soon hit it off. Stannis trusts Davos to always tell him the truth – even if it’s not what Stannis wants to hear.

Interests… assisting Stannis in claiming his rightful place (in their mind) on the throne. Stannis is not a particularly charismatic man, but Davos thinks that he is a fair and just one who will do right by the Seven Kingdoms. Davos’ life is pledged to the cause, and he spends all his waking hours laboring in the service of Stannis.

Relationship Status... married with children. Davos is committed to his family, and is particularly vested in the success of his sons, who have been granted access to opportunities he never had as a common smuggler.

Challenge... overcoming his humble, and criminal, origins to become a true power broker. Davos does not come from a noble family, and instead made it to Dragonstone to help Stannis the hard way. This means some people in the Baratheon camp do not trust him. But Stannis points out that family history or not, Davos has done more to help his cause than anyone else.     

Personality... tough, smart, and incredibly loyal. Davos doesn’t have much in the way of formal education – in fact, he’s illiterate – but he possesses a practical canniness that allows him to work his way through seemingly impossible situations. He’s the most dependable and steadfast man you’re ever likely to meet, and intends to stand by Stannis even if he’s unsure about the influence of the red Priestess, Melisandre.
