Elia Sand is an unseen character in the fourth season. She is first mentioned in "First of His Name".

BiographyEdit

BackgroundEdit

Elia Sand is the fifth of the eight bastard daughters of Prince Oberyn Martell, known as the "Sand Snakes". Her mother is Oberyn's paramour, Ellaria Sand. She was named after her aunt, the late Princess Elia Martell.

Season 4Edit

Oberyn writes a poem to Elia and mentions her willful behavior to Queen Cersei Lannister. He explains that he named her after his murdered sister, but this ended up making him sad when he talks to her, which in turn leads to him being angry around her. Cersei, in a rare moment of genuine motherly insight, suggests that this may be the cause of her behavior.[1]

In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Elia Sand is fourteen years old. She is described as wearing her black hair in a braid and having her father's eyes. She's fond of horses and jousting, for which she often smells like a horse to her mother's despair. Her weapon of choice is the lance, for which she's dubbed "Lady Lance". Her mother affectionately refers to her as "El". Although she is the first of the younger Sand Snakes, she is just old enough to spend time with her older sisters and share their rapport with their cousin, Arianne Martell.

After Prince Doran hears the plans that the three elder Sand Snakes have in mind to avenge their father, he arrests them lest they ignite a war with the Lannisters. Ellaria and her daughters, including Elia, are placed under house arrest in the Water Gardens, lest they be used in plots against Doran or the Lannisters. Following the arrival of Ser Balon Swann, Doran reveals his true colors to the elder Sand Snakes and releases Elia, her mother and sisters.

Currently, according to Arianne's sample chapters from the sixth novel, Elia accompanies her cousin on a mission to meet potential allies.
