"Wolfsbane. A rare substance. This is no common assassin."
Tywin Lannister[src]

Wolfsbane[1] is a lethal poison obtained from a plant of the same name. Darts dipped in it may kill a grown man quickly.


Amory assassinated

Amory Lorch is assassinated with a wolfsbane dart.

Game of Thrones: Season 2[]

Jaqen H'ghar murders Ser Amory Lorch using a poisonous dart dipped in wolfsbane.[2] Tywin identifies the poison from the smell of the dart.[3]

In the books[]

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, wolfsbane is mentioned as a type of poison, but is never employed in the narrative. Amory Lorch's death is not caused by it, or by any other poison.

Wolfsbane is actually a poison in real-life, made from the Aconitum plant genus, which contains 250 individual species - all collectively known as "wolf's bane".
