Nora and her daughter are seen by Arya Stark while being herded into the city with the other civilians. They are later among the countless innocent civilians caught in the crossfire during the Battle of King's Landing. Despite Queen Cersei's surrender, Daenerys Targaryen destroys the city with dragonfire anyway, resulting in genocide. The two take refuge inside a building, but are told by Arya Stark to keep moving. Nora is later injured by a Dothraki soldier, and then burned alive by Drogon along with her child after Arya is unable to save them. In the aftermath of the battle, Arya sees the burnt corpses of Nora and her daughter.[1]
