"He was my master! Dezhor zo Raza. The man who forced me to... I'm going to kill you! That's a mercy compared to what you deserve. After what you did to me, to those other children, I should tie you up, let the fucking dogs rip you apart!"
Beskha after finding Dezhor[src]

Dezhor zo Raza is a wealthy citizen of Meereen and Beskha's former Master.



At some point he purchased Beskha and when she was seven he forced her to fight in an arena, after growing bored of watching her kill animals he sent in other children instead and forced them to kill each other for nothing more than his own amusement. Ten years ago, Beskha bought her freedom, however, she still wishes for vengeance, yet dreads ever returning to Meereen due to this past trauma.

Sons of Winter

Beskha will leave Croft's planned route through Meereen. When Asher Forrester and Croft follow, they find her holding Dezhor at sword-point. When Croft objects to the plan, Asher can choose whether to allow Beskha to kill him which will improve her opinion of Asher but risk the wrath of Daenerys Targaryen who had ordered them not to kill any of the masters, he can follow Daenerys' orders and stop Beskha which greatly annoys her and results in her just kicking him in the head and then spitting on him or Asher can just kill him himself much to the dismay of both Beskha and Croft.[1]

In the books

While there is no equivalent character in the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, there is a mention that in some fighting pits on Astapor slave children are employed as entertainment. For example, in Douquor's pit there is mention of a "folly" involving a bear and three small boys - one boy is to be rolled in honey, one in blood and one in rotting fish, and spectators can bet on which child will the bear devour first. There is also a mention of a nine year old girl fighting at Jothiel's Pit.
