Biography

Background

Tobho Mott is a master armorer and blacksmith living in the city of King's Landing. Despite being a foreigner from the Free City of Qohor, he is well-regarded for the quality of his work and has received the patronage of many knights and even some lords. Mott is assisted by his apprentice smith, a young man named Gendry.

Season 1

Eddard Stark learns that his predecessor Jon Arryn visited Mott prior to his death. Stark goes to question Mott and learns that Arryn displayed a particular interest in Gendry.[1] Stark later realizes that Gendry is the bastard son of King Robert Baratheon. Robert is killed and Gendry joins the Night's Watch.[2]

Season 2

Mott is forcibly questioned and tortured by the gold cloaks about the whereabouts of Gendry. He tells Janos Slynt that Gendry joined the Night's Watch and that he can be recognized by the bull-shaped helm he sports. [3]

Season 3

When Gendry mentions to the Brotherhood Without Banners that he apprenticed under Tobho, Thoros Of Myr noted that Tobho charges double what the other smiths do. Gendry retorts that his work is twice the quality as well.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Tobho Mott is a native of the Free City of Qohor who learned to smith there, including the working of the fabled Valyrian steel. He moved to Westeros when younger and has successfully built up his own business thanks to his formidable skills. His armory is a large building at the top of the Street of Steel, impressive in size and outfittings.

When Eddard Stark asked Mott who paid him Gendry's apprentice fee, Mott answered evasively, but eventually admitted it was a mysterious lord who did not identify himself that paid him both the apprentice fee and to keep his mouth shut about the youth.

In the books, Mott is not interrogated about Gendry's whereabouts. It is not explained how the Gold Cloaks knew that Gendry was with Yoren's caravan.
