Duur's village is raided by the dothraki khalasar under Khal [[Drogo]]. The captive women are taken into slavery and raped. The Khaleesi [[Daenerys Targaryen]] orders that the [[Lhazareen]] women - including Mirri Maz Duur - be handed over to her custody to protect them. One of Drogo's warriors, [[Mago]], objects. When Drogo agrees to Daenerys' request, Mago challenges Drogo to single combat. Drogo kills Mago, but takes an [[arakh]] wound to his chest. Mirri Maz Duur volunteers to heal the wound, saying that she is a goodwife or priestess of the Lhazareen god, the Great Shepherd. Drogo's bloodrider [[Qotho]] objects, calling Duur a ''maegi'' - a witch -, but Drogo accepts her offering.<ref>"[[The Pointy End]]"</ref>

"Saved me? Three of those riders had already raped me before you saved me, girl. I saw my god's house burn, there where I had healed men and women beyond counting. In the streets I saw piles of heads... the head of the baker who makes my bread, the head a young boy that I had cured of fever just three moons past. So... tell me again exactly what it was that you saved?"
Mirri Maz Duur to Daenerys Targaryen[src]

Mirri Maz Duur is a recurring character in the first season. She is played by guest star Mia Soteriou and debuts in "The Pointy End." She was a Lhazareen godswife enslaved by the khalasar led by Drogo. She treats Drogo for a small wound he took during the sack of her village. He becomes gravely unwell and she convinces his wife Daenerys Targaryen to let her use blood magic, promising to save his life. She leaves Drogo in a vegetative state and takes the blood price of Daenerys' unborn child in vengeance for the attack on her people. She is burned to death on Drogo's funeral pyre by Daenerys.

BiographyEdit

Mirri Maz Duur awaits her death

Duur's village is raided by the Dothraki khalasar under Khal Drogo. The captive women are taken into slavery and raped. The Khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen orders that the Lhazareen women - including Mirri Maz Duur - be handed over to her custody to protect them. One of Drogo's warriors, Mago, objects. When Drogo agrees to Daenerys' request, Mago challenges Drogo to single combat. Drogo kills Mago, but takes a minor arakh wound to his chest. Mirri Maz Duur volunteers to heal the wound, saying that she is a godswife, or priestess of the Lhazareen god, the Great Shepherd. Drogo's bloodrider Qotho objects, calling Duur a maegi - a witch - but Drogo accepts her offering.[1]

In spite of (or maybe because of) Mirri Maz Duur's attentions, Drogo's wound becomes infected, making him seriously ill, and he falls from his horse. Duur claims that she can save him, but requires a blood sacrifice. She suggests killing Drogo's horse. Qotho becomes enraged at her use of magic to save Drogo and tries to stop the ceremony, but is killed by Ser Jorah Mormont. Daenerys is thrown to the ground and goes into labor, so Mormont takes her into the tent where Duur is carrying out the ceremony to ask for her aid.[2]

When Daenerys awakens she learns that her son was stillborn and malformed. She finds Drogo alive but in a vegetative state. Duur explains that Daenerys got what she traded for, and that before she was "saved" by Daenerys, she had already been raped several times and her temple had been burned. Now thanks to her spell, neither Drogo nor his son will cause more suffering. Daenerys builds a funeral pyre for Drogo and orders Jorah to bind Duur to the pyre. The maegi claims she won't scream. She begins chanting as the flames slowly engulf her, though her singing quickly changes to shrieks of pain as she is burnt alive. True to Daenerys' word, Duur dies screaming.[3]
