Behind the scenes

During rewrites, Robb Stark's romantic interest began to get an increasingly different backstory than in the novels. George R.R. Martin himself suggested the name Maegyr as an old Volantene name to accommodate the changes from his source novels.[6] Talisa's backstory does not include how, or even if, she is related to the same Maegyr family written about in the novels.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Malaquo Maegyr is one of the Triarchs of Volantis, the city's three rulers. Triachs like Malaquo Maegyr are elected from amongst those noble families who can prove unbroken descent from old Valyria. Malaquo Maegyr is a "Tiger," the "Old Bloods" political faction who favor more resource allocation into preparing for war. Fittingly, the sigil next to the onscreen credit for Oona Chaplin, who portrays Talisa Maegyr, in the opening titles is two tigers circling one another.
