Season 5

While sailing to Oldtown, the captain is bribed by Jaime Lannister to smuggle him and Bronn into Dorne and keep it a secret. After dropping off Jaime and Bronn on a Dornish beach, he tries to sell this information to Obara Sand in Planky Town. Unfortunately for him, she was insulted that he did not offer up such a vital warning for free and so she tortures him. The Sand Snakes end up burying him up to his neck in the sand, gagged, and covered by a bucket filled with scorpions. Later, Obara kills the captain by throwing her spear, impaling him through the head.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels there is no parallel character. Jaime and Bronn do not travel to Dorne at all. Instead, Cersei sends Ser Balon Swann, who goes to Dorne on an official mission to take Myrcella back, so he does not need to smuggle himself into the country.
