"Wolfsbane. A rare substance. This is no common assassin."
Tywin Lannister[src]

Wolfsbane is a lethal poison obtained from a plant of the same name. Darts dipped in it may kill a grown man quickly.


Season 2

Jaqen H'ghar murders Ser Amory Lorch using a poisonous dart dipped in wolfsbane. Tywin Lannister identifies the poison from the smell of the dart.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels wolfsbane is mentioned as a type of poison but is never employed in the narrative. Jaqen H'ghar's second victim, Weese, is seemingly killed when his dog tears out his throat.

Wolfsbane is actually a poison in real-life, made from the Aconitum plant genus, which contains 250 individual species - all collectively known as "wolf's bane".
