Illyrio Mopatis is a wealthy and powerful Magister in the Free City of Pentos. He is a dealer in spices, gemstones, smokbone, and other things.[1] He is morbidly obese, with yellow hair and a forked beard. For a time he served as custodian of the exiled Targaryens and now seeks to return them to the Żelazny Tron. In the TV series he is played by Roger Allem.


Illyrio is tall and morbidly obese, with an oiled forked yellow beard and crooked yellow teeth.[1] He has pigs eyes and fat cheeks. He has a huge white belly and a pair of heavy breasts that sag like sacks of suet covered with coarse yellow hair. His bedrobe is large enough to serve as a tourney pavilion. He reminds Tyrion of a dead sea cow that once washed up in the caverns under Casterly Rock. When he laughs his flesh bounces vigorously. He tends to stroke one of the prongs of his oiled yellow beard, a gesture which Tyrion finds remarkably obscene.

While in the litter with Viserys and Illyrio on the way to Khal Drogo's mance Daenerys can smell the stench of Illyrio's flesh through his heavy perfumes.

The gemstone rings on his hands are onyx and opal, tiger’s eye and tourmaline, ruby, amethyst, sapphire, emerald, jet and jade, a black diamond, and a green pearl. Tyrion thinks to himself that he could live for years on those rings, though he'd need a cleaver to claim them.

Earlier on, when Arya sees Illyrio with Varys by the well, it appears to her that he seems to walk lightly, carrying his weight as a water dancer might. His rings glimmer in the torchlight, red-gold and pale silver, crusted with rubies, sapphires, slitted yellow tiger eyes, every finger bore a ring, some had two.

In his youth, however, Illyrio was a Najemnik and was muscular and exceptionally handsome. A statue of his youthful self carved by Pytho Malanon graces the court in his manse, it is of a naked boy standing in the water of a marble pool, poised to duel with a bravo’s blade in hand. He is lithe and handsome, no older than sixteen, with straight blond hair that brushes his shoulders. So lifelike does the statue seem that it takes Tyrion a moment to realise he is made of painted marble, though his sword simmers like true steel.

Illyrio says he once wept looking at the statue of himself then and looking at himself now.[2]


As a young man, Illyrio was a poor bravo, living by his blade. After the young Varys arrived in Pentos they formed an unlikely friendship and worked together and became very rich. Illyrio grew very respectable and married the maiden daughter of a cousin of the Prince of Pentos. After she died, he remarried at least once, to a Lysene pillowhouse worker, Serra. This infuriated the Prince, who barred the palace to him forever after. Illyrio was very happy with Serra until a Braavosi trading galley anchored in Pentos carrying the plague. Through the rats the plague left the ship and killed two thousand in the city, among them Serra. Illyrio keeps a locket with Serra's picture and her hands as a reminder of his lost love.[3] Even decades after Varys left to serve in Westeros the two still keep in close contact.

He has watched over the remaining Targaryens, having them stay at his manse under his protection. Daenerys and Viserys Targaryen stayed half a year before Dany's marriage to Khal Drogo. He was smitten at first by the beauty of Daenerys Targaryen and thought of eliminating Viserys and claiming her as a wife, but dismissed this idea soon as he believed the girl too timid and frightened and that coupling with her would give him no pleasure. He claims he protected Viserys and Daenerys on the grounds that Viserys promised to make him the Master of Coin upon his ascension to the Żelazny Tron.[3]

Recent Events

Gra o Tron

Apparently, Illyrio's interest in the Targaryens is purely financial, expecting to receive great riches in gratitude once a Targaryen regains power. He also inflames Viserys' ambitions by telling him of Westerosi people awaiting the return of their rightful king, of men drinking toasts to his health and women sewing smok banners in secret. Illyrio brokered the arranged marriage between Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo to use Drogo's powerful khalasar as an invasion force. He also worked with Varys, King Robert's spymaster, to engineer a strategic period of weakness for the Targaryens' invasion. He gifted Daenerys at her wedding with three petrified smok eggs, not expecting that Daenerys would hatch them. Ironically, the smoks were worth more than anything Illyrio could hope to receive from Daenerys.[1][4]

Starcie Królów

Illyrio continued to look after Daenerys, sending her Strong Belwas and his squire, Arstan along with three ships to take her back to Pentos.[5]

Taniec ze Smokami

After Tyrion Lannister was convicted of treason in the poisoning of King Joffrey Baratheon, Varys arranged to smuggle him out of Królewska Przystań and put him in Illyrio's care. When Tyrion arrives Illyrio greets him, he hosts Tyrion and offers him a way to become Lord of Casterly Rock. He reveals the truth about Daenerys Targaryen to Tyrion. Tyrion though reluctant and wary saw it as his only chance to gain his birthright and agreed to travel to her. Illyrio and Tyrion travel in a litter and eventually meets with some of Illyrio's other friends.[2] Illyrio greets Haldon and Rolly Duckfield and has Tyrion join them to continue the voyage to Volantis. Illyrio bids them a pleasant journey and returns to Pentos and his manse.


Illyrio believes in no cause but Illyrio. Gluttons are greedy men as a rule, and magisters are devious. Illyrio Mopatis is both.
