―The foreign merchant to a pair of goldcloaks[src]

A foreign merchant is a character in the fifth season. He is portrayed by Allon Sylvain and appears in "Sons of the Harpy".



This lesser merchant, presumably of Essosi origin, deals in idols and images of different religions, including representations of the fiery heart of the Lord of Light.

The merchant is in King's Landing when members of the the recently restored Faith Militant approach him and destroy his post and the idols he sells. He shouts for help, but a pair of members of the City Watch ignores him.[1]

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels so far there has been no mention of the members of the Faith Militant carrying out attacks against worshipers of other religions, even though the High Sparrow does consider R'hllor a demon.
