↳ Obara Sand, the first of the Sand Snakes
First child of Oberyn Martell and a prostitute of Oldtown, Obara Sand is a prickly, hot-tempered woman who is given to martial pursuits as she considers herself a warrior, wielding a spear, a whip, and a round shield of steel and copper.
She is hard, quick, and strong. She is fond of wine and is a confident rider who uses spurs, often to the point where the animal is bloody, and always rides stallions. Obara is a big-boned woman near to thirty, long-legged, with close-set eyes and rat-brown hair.
When her father came to claim her, her mother did not want him to take her. He threw a spear down at her mother’s feet and slapped her mother. Then Oberyn asked Obara which weapon, the spear or the tears, she would choose. Obara chose the spear. Her mother drank herself to death within a year.
After Oberyn’s death, Obara meets Prince Doran Martell at the Water Gardens, demanding vengeance for her father. Prince Doran says he will think about it.
