Books Edit

A Game of Thrones Edit

Mycah is befriended by Arya Stark on the ride south between Winterfell and King's Landing. He sleeps in the meat wagon, and smells as such. He shows her a lizard lion when they pass through The Neck, and intends to search the Ruby Ford for some of Rhaegar Targaryen's lost jewels.

He practices swordfighting with Arya at her own request. They spar with wooden sticks. During one of their sparring sessions they are interrupted by Joffrey I Baratheon and Sansa Stark. Joffrey is slightly drunk on wine, and threatens Mycah. He is distracted by Arya, and then Nymeria attacks him. Mycah runs away during the distraction. Mycah is later found by Sandor Clegane, who runs him down when the boy tries to escape.
