The Lady in Red
Melisandre is a red priestess of R'hllor and a shadowbinder , hailing from the city of Asshai in the Further East of Essos. She has become an influential advisor to him and his family. Melisandre is regarded as a beautiful woman by many. As is the custom of the red priests of her faith, Melisandre always dresses in long red fabric.
Melisandre has the ability to see visions in the flames, and completely trusts in the power of her god, R'hllor. Although she acknowledges that visions can be misinterpreted,  she has faith in her ability to correctly interpret visions, even if the vision does not entirely agree with the proposed interpretation.
Although she is genuinely skilled with magic, she enhances this with various smokes and powders that she keeps concealed in her robes.
As a slave called Melony of "Lot Seven", Melisandre was sold to a red temple at an early age. Melisandre has practiced her art for "years beyond count". Melisandre travels to Dragonstone on her own  in search of a prophesied prince, Azor Ahai , who will lead the war for the dawn against the Great Other , the enemy to her god, R'hllor.
At the crossroads inn Lord Tywin Lannister tells his son Tyrion that according to one of the rumors Lord Varys has heard, Lord Stannis Baratheon is bringing a shadowbinder from Asshai to Dragonstone ,  possibly in reference to Melisandre, although she had arrived on Dragonstone some years ago.
Melisandre resides at Dragonstone, where she has converted Lady Selyse Florent to the faith of R'hllor.
She is feared by most of the servants, who call her "the red woman" as they do not dare to say her name. Melisandre drinks most of the wine and remains unharmed, but Cressen dies drinking the remaining fluid. Although Stannis is not as committed to R'hllor as his wife and the queen's men in his court, Melisandre convinces him to burn the statues of the Seven from the castle sept of Dragonstone in sacrifice to R'hllor.
In King's Landing , Lord Petyr Baelish reminds the small council that some years past, Varys had reported that Selyse had taken up with a red priest. The councilors decide to use Melisandre's religion and the greyscale of Princess Shireen Baratheon to discredit Stannis. Stannis's brother Renly , Lord of Storm's End , has also declared himself king, and has gathered the support from most stormlanders and men from the Reach.
She urges Stannis to meet with Renly and give him a last chance to swear his loyalty to Stannis. Stannis begins to have terrible nightmares after Renly's death, and only Melisandre can soothe him to sleep. He also reveals that she has seen Renly smashing Stannis's forces beneath the walls of King's Landing, but Stannis believes that Renly's death has prevented that scenario from happening.
At night Stannis has Davos sail Melisandre underneath Storm's End, where she births a shadow assassin  which slays Cortnay. By stating that men might say Stannis owes his crown to Melisandre's spells if he allows her to take part in the battle to come, Lord Bryce Caron convinces Stannis to send Melisandre back to Dragonstone, where she resides while Stannis and his forces fight at the capital.
Davos is determined to kill Melisandre,  believing her to be responsible for the defeat on the Blackwater and subsequently the deaths of his four eldest sons.
Melisandre suggests making one with Davos, but Davos refuses. Melisandre tells Stannis there is power in a king's blood, and she wishes to sacrifice Edric Storm , the acknowledged bastard son of the late King Robert I Baratheon , to "wake the stone dragon ". Both Melisandre and Stannis are convinced of the need to quickly unite the Seven Kingdoms under one king, in preparation for the battle against the Great Other , about whom Melisandre has shown Stannis visions in the flames.
However, Stannis implies to Davos that he will be willing to sacrifice Edric should Joffrey die. Davos reads Stannis and Melisandre a letter from Maester Aemon at Castle Black , informing the realm of the threats the Night's Watch is facing and asking for aid,  which neither Stannis nor Melisandre knew about. When Stannis sails for the Wall , Melisandre sacrifices Lord Alester Florent to her god to gain favorable winds for the voyage north.
Melisandre holds her nightfires at Castle Black. Stannis claims to Jon that Melisandre has seen in her flames that the wildlings will return. In a meeting with the high officers of the Night's Watch, Melisandre informs the black brothers that they have to hold nightfires at their gates as a way to battle their enemy. Maester Aemon recognizes she is speaking about the war for the dawn , and asks about the prince that was promised.
Melisandre informs him Stannis is the prophesied prince. He secretly forces Gilly to take Mance's son with her, pretending he is her own child, to save Mance's son from Melisandre's flames. While sailing on Cinnamon Wind , Aemon tells Sam that Melisandre has misread the signs and deceived herself into believing that Stannis is the prince that was promised.
The dying maester now believes that Daenerys Targaryen fits the prophecy. Melisandre walks atop the Wall every night with Stannis. Melisandre tells him that she will ask R'hllor for guidance about what to do with Mance, whom Stannis plans to burn, after Jon insists that Mance could be useful to them.
She warns Jon to watch out for enemies, stating that she has seen him surrounded by enemies in her flames, and daggers in the dark. Despite Jon's efforts to change the king's mind, Stannis is determined to sacrifice Mance. Melisandre places a glamor over him, making him appear to be the wildling Rattleshirt. Rattleshirt, in turn, is glamored to look like Mance, and killed in his place. Melisandre remains at Castle Black when Stannis marches for the northern mountains ,  attended to by a dozen greybeards, cripples, and drunkards, including Merrel and Morgan.
Although Melisandre feels safe without them, she keeps a pair of guards with her for appearances. Judging that Davos has lost enough sons, Melisandre requests Stannis to leave Devan Seaworth , Davos's eldest surviving son, at Castle Black as well, to keep him safe.
The youth becomes fascinated with the beautiful woman. Melisandre's powers are much stronger at the Wall, and she constantly searches her fires for visions. She assumes that they are servants of the Great Other. She asks to see Azor Ahai, hoping for Stannis, but sees only Jon surrounded by skulls, his face changing between that of a man and that of a wolf. Shortly after Jon receives a letter announcing the upcoming wedding of Ramsay Bolton and Arya Stark , Melisandre informs him that she has seen Arya in her flames, a grey girl, fleeing from her marriage on a dying horse.
She tells Jon that she can show him how to use his " power ", but he remains wary of her. She then warns Jon that she has seen that three of the nine rangers he has sent out will die, and that she has seen their faces with empty sockets, weeping blood. Melisandre tells Mance they can only win Jon's trust by rescuing his sister.
Melisandre finds Jon north of the Wall, where the heads of Black Jack Bulwer , Hairy Hal , and Garth Greyfeather have been impaled by the Weeper , making the first of her predictions come true. Jon asks her to look in her flames for the other six rangers. He informs her that Ser Denys Mallister at the Shadow Tower believes the wildlings might try to force their way across the Bridge of Skulls , and Melisandre tells him that she has seen towers by the sea submerged beneath a black and bloody tide.
Though she acknowledges to herself that the towers in her vision do not look like those at Eastwatch, Melisandre claims the attack will fall there when asked by Jon. When Jon protests, she reveals Mance's true identity to him. Melisandre's second prediction comes true when Alys Karstark —not Arya—arrives at Castle Black, fleeing from her cousin Cregan , who wants to force a marriage between them as to lay claim on Karhold. When Jon plans to send men to Hardhome on a rescue mission, Melisandre urges him not to,  claiming it is a lost cause and that she has seen that none of Cotter Pyke 's rescue ships will return.
Melisandre : The night is dark and full of terrors. Cressen : Only children fear the dark. Davos : Are you good or evil, my lady? Melisandre : Oh, good. I am a knight of sorts myself, sweet ser. A champion of light and life. These little wars are no more than a scuffle of children before what is to come.
The one whose name may not be spoken is marshaling his power, Davos Seaworth, a power fell and evil and strong beyond measure. Soon comes the cold, and the night that never ends. Unless true men find the courage to fight it. Men whose hearts are fire. When the red star bleeds and the darkness gathers, Azor Ahai shall be born again amidst smoke and salt to wake dragons out of stone.
Melisandre : When I gaze into the flames, I can see through stone and earth, and find the truth within men's souls. I can speak to kings long dead and children not yet born, and watch the years and seasons flicker past, until the end of days.
We all must choose. Man or woman, young or old, lord or peasant, our choices are the same. We choose light or we choose darkness. I pray for a glimpse of Azor Ahai , and R'hllor shows me only Snow. With Stannis gone, her bed saw little use. She had no time for sleep, with the weight of the world upon her shoulders. And she feared to dream.
Sleep is a little death, dreams the whisperings of the Other , who would drag us all into his eternal night. She would sooner sit bathed in the ruddy glow of her red lord's blessed flames, her cheeks flushed by the wash of heat as if by a lover's kisses.
Many called her beautiful. She was not beautiful. She was red, and terrible, and red. Half my knights are afraid even to say her name, did you know? If she can do nothing else, a sorceress who can inspire such dread in grown men is not to be despised.
A frightened man is a beaten man. And perhaps she can do more. I mean to find out. She spoke to me. We called the fire, she said. We called the shadows too. I rowed Melisandre into the bowels of Storm's End and watched her birth a horror.
She killed Cressen and Lord Renly and a brave man named Cortnay Penrose , and she killed my sons as well. Now it is time someone killed her.

The Lady in Red
It depicts a woman with long brown hair and red eyes. Her attire consists of a red dress. As one of the books Mary and Ib can read in the Brown Area claims, the women pictured in The Lady in Red and its variations are based off women who would court Guertena for his money, rather than the popular in-game theory that they were based off of lovers he had at the time. Before the lights start to flicker, a man is staring at her, wondering if she could be unintentionally based off of a real person. The painting can be seen again in the Red Area , hanging on the wall next to the Red Key , and again in the Gray Area , next to its other variations.
