Little Bird: "Will Lord Varys ever come back?"
Qyburn: "I don't think so. Do you miss him?"
Little Bird: "He was nice."
— The "Little Bird" and Qyburn[src]

Frances[1] is a dwarf. She was part of Varys's network of informants and spies, and she is now under the command of Qyburn.


Season 6

Frances is first seen around other little birds in Qyburn's chamber, where Qyburn is tending to a boy's bruised eye. It's revealed that Qyburn has done away with the child's abusive father, and has taken the boy under his wing along with the rest of the little birds. When Frances asks about Lord Varys, the boy reveals that he and the other children were the eunuch's network of 'little birds'. Qyburn bribes the children with candied plums to take allegiance with him, and do for him what they did for Varys.[2]

Frances, along with some of the other little birds, stab and murder Pycelle in Qyburn's laboratory, after summoning him with the pretense of a royal request.[3]
