A Great Master is a citizen of Meereen and the head of one of the ancient noble families of the city.
He is a Meereenese noble and the head of one of the great families of the city.
He's arrested under orders of Queen Daenerys Targaryen along with several of his peers after a series of murders and attacks carried out by the Sons of the Harpy. He's taken to the catacombs beneath the Great Pyramid where Rhaegal and Viserion are kept chained and watches in horror as the two dragons burn and devour another Great Master.
Behind the scenes
The character was originally listed as "Elboneno" in the actor's CV, however "Elboneno" doesn't fit the established naming conventions of the Ghiscari inhabitants of Slaver's Bay. The name simply is "one noble" spelled backwards.
In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels Daenerys never has the heads of the ancient slaving families arrested after the attacks of the Sons of the Harpy. Instead she has these families deliver a child as hostage.
