Game of Thrones
Missandei is a Naathi servant in the employ of Daenerys Targaryen. She was a slave to Kraznys mo Nakloz, and acted as his interpreter when dealing with foreign traders looking to buy slaves. Missandei has two living brothers who are part of the Unsullied that were freed by Daenerys.
Missandei is described as soft spoken, and very inteligent, with a round face and eyes of gold. In the books, she is but ten years of age, when she meets Daenerys, but in the HBO series, she is a young adult. When Dany freed Missandei, she offered the former slave a position at her side. Missandei would be Daenerys’ handmaiden, and one of her closest advisors. She also continues to act as an interpreter for the Mother of Dragons.
In season 3, Missandei interprets for Nakloz, in the purchasing of the Unsullied. She refuses to translate the offensive insults that the slave master throws at Dany. Unbeknownst to her, Daenerys fluently speaks High Valyrian and understood everything that was being said. It is because Dany knew that Missandei would not insult her, that she takes the slave girl into her service, after freeing her.
