Oberyn Martell meme: (¼) four relationships → Oberyn & Obara “The day my father came to claim me, my mother did not wish for me to go. ‘She is a girl,’ she said, ‘and I do not think that she is yours. I had a thousand other men.’ He tossed his spear at my feet and gave my mother the back of his hand across the face, so she began to weep. ‘Girl or boy, we fight our battles,’ he said, ‘but the gods let us choose our weapons.’ He pointed to the spear, then to my mother’s tears, and I picked up the spear. ‘I told you she was mine,’ my father said, and took me.“
Prince Oberyn Martell’s bastard daughters, Tyene, Obara and Nym are collectively known as The Sand Snakes. “Sand” is the surname of bastards born in the southern land of Dorne, while “Snakes” is a nod to their father’s nickname, “The Red Viper.” [x]
