Looking for scoop on Game of Thrones character Davos Seaworth? We’ve got all the latest Davos pics, spoilers, videos, and news right here!
A reformed smuggler, Game of Thrones’ Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) has devoted his life to serving the man who granted him knighthood: King Stannis Baratheon. Though Stannis chopped off four of Davos’ fingers for his illegal smuggling, Davos considered it a just punishment and a fair trade for the future his sons now have. Davos serves Stannis in his quest for the Iron Throne.
Davos is introduced in Season 2 as Stannis prepares his forces for war. Davos is wary of Melisandre, a representative of the Lord of Light who has Stannis’ ear. Davos becomes more uncomfortable when he see Melisandre birth a shadow creature that kills King Renly Baratheon (and, really, who wouldn’t?). Still, he remains loyal to Stannis.
Stannis chooses Davos to lead his fleet in the Battle of the Blackwater. Though Stannis has greater numbers, King’s Landing defends itself using wildfire, a highly volatile material that water cannot extinguish. Davos’ son is killed in the attack, and Davos is thrown overboard and presumed dead.
In Season 3, Davos is rescued from a small islet. He returns to Stannis’ seat at Dragonstone and attempts to kill Melisandre, who is now burning alive anyone who speaks against her. Davos is thrown into the dungeon where he is visited by Stannis’ young daughter, Shireen, who offers to teach him how to read. Later he helps Gendry escape when Mel wants to kill the boy; he almost dies for that, but convinces Stannis that his focus should be on helping the Night's Watch fight the Others.
Davos was introduced in Season 2, Episode 1: "The North Remembers.”
— To his son, Mathos: “You want me to have a god? Fine. Stannis is my god. He raised me up and blessed me with his trust. He gave you a future I could never have imagined. You know how to read, you'll be a knight some day. You think a fire-god commanded all of that? It was Stannis, only Stannis.”
— To Melisandre: “I do not judge people by the gods they worship. If I did, I’d have thrown you in the sea long before you ever set foot on Dragonstone.”
