Abigail Thorn plays Sharako Lohar

In Martin’s Fire & Blood, Sharako Lohar plays a pivotal role in the Targaryen civil war, commanding a fleet of ninety Myrish, Lysene, and Tyroshi warships under the banners of the Three Daughters, allied with King Aegon II Targaryen. Tasked with breaking the blacks’ blockade of the Gullet, Lohar led his fleet into a bloody battle, emerging victorious but with only twenty-eight ships surviving.

According to the book, Sharako Lohar is male. Despite that, the showrunners reimagined the character as female. This gender swap opens fresh narrative possibilities and adds depth to the series’ exploration of power dynamics. A female Triarch in Volantis, a city with its distinct and patriarchal political structure, could introduce unique challenges and perspectives. This could provide an enriching storyline with themes of gender and authority.
