- "There is nothing in the North but ice, and war, and pirates."
- ―Ternesio Terys to Arya Stark
Arya Stark approaches Terys at a small port in Saltpans and asks him if he'll give her passage to the Wall. She is willing to pay or scrub the floors of the ship in return. He tries to dissuade her from visiting the North, opining that it is a land of "ice, war and pirates". Besides, he says his ship is actually bound for his home, Braavos. Arya remembers the iron coin and the instructions that Jaqen H'ghar had given her following her escape from Harrenhal, and shows the coin to him, whispering "Valar Morghulis". Terys, astounded, responds with "Valar Dohaeris" and promises her a cabin.
