Quaithe is Game of Thrones‘ biggest unresolved mystery and the subject of many A Song of Ice and Fire fan theories, but who was she and why does she matter? Played by Laura Pradelska, Quaithe only actually appeared in two episodes of Game of Thrones season 2, but left a big impression and an even bigger question mark behind.
In Game of Thrones, Quaithe made her first appearance in season 2’s “The Ghost of Harrenhal”, where she warns Jorah Mormont that the men of Qarth may desire Daenerys’ dragons. It’s not her words that stand out, however, but her appearance, with Quaithe instantly striking thanks to her gold hexagonal mask. She re-emerges a couple of episodes later, informing Jorah that all men who pass the Doom of Valyria need protection, and also questioning his own loyalty to Daenerys.
