16. Trystane Martell Becomes His Sigil
Trystane Martell wasn’t in the show long, but he was an important figure while he lasted. Son of Prince Doran Martell and betrothed to Myrcella Baratheon, Cercei’s daughter, Trystane was set to become part of the high council in King’s Landing. While on their way, however, Myrcella is poisoned by the Sand Snakes and killed. Trystane is then told by Jaime to stay hidden for his protection. While in the ship waiting, the Sand Snakes enter his room. As he prepares to fight one of the sisters, Nymeria, Obara stabs him through the face from behind with her spear. In gruesomely poetic fashion, Trystane, the son with a spear through his face, became the physical embodiment of the Martell Sigil.
