- "The Wise Masters of Yunkai have sent a gift for the Silver Queen."
- ―Razdal mo Eraz to Daenerys Targaryen
After hearing about what Daenerys Targaryen did to Astapor's Good Masters during the Sack of Astapor, the Wise Masters of Yunkai sent an envoy to her army, which had camped just outside the city, offering gold so that she abandoned Essos and left the slavers in peace to continue with their affairs. She rebuffed their offer, although she kept the gold. After Daario Naharis betrayed his commanders, breached the contract the Second Sons had with Yunkai and put the two thousand mercenaries at the service of Daenerys, the Wise Masters were overthrown during the Battle of Yunkai. Soon after, many of the newly freed slaves vacated the city and proclaimed Daenerys as their "mother." However, eventually the Wise Masters regained control of the city and re-enslaved the inhabiting freedmen. Daenerys, now ruler of Meereen, sent Daario Naharis and his Second Sons back to Yunkai alongside Hizdahr zo Loraq, a Meereenese Great Master at her service, so that he could offer the Wise Masters the option of abandoning slavery once and for all, or else they would be put to the sword. The Wise Masters agreed to renounce slavery, with the proposal that the fighting pits be reopened, though only with willing participants using them now. Daenerys initially rejected this, but later reconsidered after Daario relates to her winning in the pits had helped him make his fortune, join the Second Sons and thus meet her.
