Likely Changed Identities



Aurane Waters, The Bastard of Driftmark of House Velaryon and Master of Ships of the royal fleet was last seen in approximately 300 AC informing Cersei of the fighting at Storm’s End led by Ser Loras Tyrell. Later, Qyburn tells Cersei that Aurane fled King’s Landing with the ships. An exact description of these ships is mentioned as being under the command of a new pirate king, the Lord of the Waters.



Jaqen H'ghar, presumably a member of the assassins order known as Faceless Men. Arya Stark watched him change his face as he left Harrenhal in 299 AC. Later, an alchemist in Oldtown surfaced matching the description of Jaqen’s new face. The alchemist then encountered and killed Pate, a novice in training at the Citadel. Later, Sam meets “Pate” who is most likely Jaqen in yet another disguise.



Sandor Clegane, formerly a member of Joffrey Baratheon’s Kingsguard. He deserted his post during the Battle of the Blackwater. His current allegiance is unknown though he was an unlikely protector of Sansa Stark and a somewhat mentor and protector to Arya Stark. He was gravely injured in 300 AC at the Saltpans. Arya denied him the gift of mercy and left him. Later, Brienne of Tarth encounters the Elder Brother and sees a Grave Digger matching the enormous size and somewhat description of Sandor.



Gregor Clegane, The Mountain that Rides of House Clegane and brother to Sandor Celgane was a loyal bannerman to House Lannister. He championed the Iron Throne against Oberyn Martell in Tyrion Lannister’s Trial by Combat following the allegations that Tyrion poisoned King Joffrey Baratheon. Gregor took a fatal and poisoned injury from Oberyn before crushing Oberyn’s face. Qyburn was sent to tend to his wounds. Later, a knight matching Gregor’s unnatural size was introduced as the newest member of the Kingsguard named Ser Robert Strong.



Unsolved Mysteries



Syrio Forel, First Sword of Bravos (formerly), hired by Lord Eddard Stark to train Arya Stark in the art of water dancing. In 298 AC during the purge of the Winterfell household from the Red Keep he held back the Lannister guards for Arya to escape. Ser Meryn Trant of the Kingsguard tells Cersei that he killed the “dancing instructor”. Meryn’s account leaves questions as readers know that Syrio introduced himself as the First Sword and not a dancing instructor.



Unknown Players



Richard Lonmouth, Rhaegar Targaryen’s closest friend and an ally of House Targaryen was last seen in 281 AC during the Tourney at Harrenhal.



The Night's King, 13th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch lived during the Age of Heroes. It is said that he took an Other for a wife and lost his soul in the process. Old Nan tells Bran Stark that the Night’s King was also named Brandon Stark and was brother to the King of Winter. Oddly, she also claims that Brandon the Breaker, the King of Winter brother to the Night’s King came together with the King-Beyond-The Wall, Joramun to defeat the Night’s King. They then wipe his name from the records of history.



Tysha Lannister, first wife of Tyrion Lannister, disappeared after their whirlwind elopement and subsequent devastating punishment brought on by Tywin Lannister. Based on Tyrion’s age at the time of the marriage and his current age it’s surmised that they were married around 280 AC.



Lady Lyarra Stark, of House Stark was the wife of Rickard Stark and mother to his children, Brandon, Ned, Lyanna and Benjen. Other than her lineage, no other information is known.



Willas Tyrell of House Tyrell is the heir to Highgarden. He has yet to been seen, only said to be in Highgarden.



Howland Reed of House Reed is a staunch ally of Ned Stark and House Stark. He sent his children, Jojen and Meera, to Winterfell in 299 AC to pledge fealty during the Harvest Feast and to help Bran Stark based on the greendreams of Jojen. Ned Stark states Howland saved his life at the Tower of Joy during Robert’s Rebellion.



Swampy Meg & Jon O’Nutten are members of the Brotherhood without Banners. They have not been seen, only as appendix entries.



Maegor Targaryen of House Targaryen was the son of Aerion Brightflame. Aerion died drinking wildfire in 232 AC, the same year Maegor was born. Maegor was a contender for the Iron Throne during the Great Council in 233 AC. He was passed over due to fear of him having inherited his father’s madness and because his namesake was Maegor the Cruel. He’s not been seen since the Great Council.



Shiera Seastar, a Targaryen Great Bastard was a known paramour of her half-brother, Lord Brynden “Bloodraven” Rivers. She was known to have spent time in the Red Keep though when she left and where she went is not known.



Wenda, the White Fawn was a member of the Kingswood Brotherhood during the reign of Aerys II. She was known to brand the butts of her highborn captives. Merret Frey was a victim of her branding sometime between 277 and 282 AC (based on when Merret Frey would’ve been old enough to be looking for the Brotherhood and before his marriage). Wenda’s fate is unknown after the defeat of the Kingswood Brotherhood.



King Brandon Stark, the Shipwright, was last seen setting sail on the Sunset Sea prior to Aegon’s Landing.



Emperor Aurion was one of the few dragonlords to survive the doom of Valyria. He raised an army of 30,000 Qohorik colonists, declared himself Emperor of Valyria and flew away on dragonback to reestablish Valyria. Neither he nor his host were seen again.

You could add a degree of likelyhood that these guys are dead or alive.

As an aside, it's amusing to me that this MIA list is from the perspective of the reader, not that of those characters that would actually be putting the pictures on the milk cartons if they could. Because right now Selmy and Belwas would be launching an Amber alert for Dany if they could, for example!

Isn't Robb Stark confirmed dead?

Yes, I have him as someone to whom allegiance was sworn to differentiate between the KiTN and the Lord Starks

13th Lord Commander. Exiled and never heard from again (yet) ;)


Gerion Lannister, searching for Brightroar

Damn, almost forgot about him, thanks!

I'll throw in Kyle Condon and Ronnel Stout.

Richard Lonmouth.

Maege Mormont and Galbart Glover.
