Mycah is a minor character in the first season. He is played by guest star Rhodri Hosking and only appears in "The Kingsroad."



Mycah is a butcher's son who has befriended Arya Stark.

Season 1Edit

He travels the Kingsroad with his father as part of King Robert Baratheon's retinue.

When he is encountered by Joffrey Baratheon practicing sword-fighting with Arya Stark, Joffrey confronts him for 'pretending to be a knight'. Despite his protests that the weapon he was using was only a stick, Joffrey forces him to pick it up. Joffrey sadistically begins pressing his sword against the boy's cheek, which prompts Arya to attack him. Mycah manages to escape but later is killed by the Hound under the orders of the prince much to Ned Stark's horror.[1]

Season 3Edit

The Brotherhood Without Banners sentences the Hound to trial by combat for Mycah's murder after Arya accuses him.[2]

Season 4Edit

He is mentioned by the Hound when he is trying to convince Arya to kill him. He says that Mycah "begged for mercy", that he killed him anyways, and that his saddle "smelled like butcher boy for weeks".[3]

Sansa Stark: "The Hound killed your friend."

Arya Stark: "You're a liar, and if you told the truth, Mycah would be alive."
— Arya and Sansa fight.[src]

In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Mycah is thirteen years old. He falls in with King Robert Baratheon's party as it returns to King's Landing from Winterfell and befriends Arya Stark.

After the Hound defeats Beric Dondarrion, he teases Arya by telling her (without the slightest remorse or regret) "I rode him [Mycah] down and cut him in half, and laughed".

According to Jeyne Poole, Mycah has been cut up in so many pieces that his body was brought back to his father in a bag. At first the poor man had thought it was a slaughtered pig.
