Daenerys and Jorah first meet at her wedding to Khal Drogo, Jorah is an exiled westerosi knight living in Essos and Daenerys an exiled princess. Jorah travels with the Dothraki to spy on Daenerys and her brother Viserys. Over time Jorah comes to love her. After the death of her brother, husband and unborn child Jorah remains with her as she conquers Slaver's Bay. In Season 4 it is revealed that he had betrayed her in the past, and she banishes him. He returns with Tyrion Lannister, again he is turned away, but is ultimately forgiven when he helps save her life during the rebellion in the fighting pits. Jorah contracts greyscale, a disease he believes to be a death sentence, but Daenerys commands him to find a cure. Jorah seeks treatment at the Citadel, and is cured by Samwell Tarly, before returning to Daenerys' side.

  • Reunion: when Jorah was banished in Season 4 there were stories exploring how they could be reunited
  • Futurefic: set post-canon, usually Jorah was Daenerys' sworn knight and lover
  • Jorah Lives: Jorah does not die during season 8
  • Fix-it: fans will sometimes try and "fix" how their story ended, this may feature Jorah living, or Jorah still dies, but there is a reveal of feelings, or Daenerys realizes that she really loved Jorah after his death.
  • Mad!Dany or Dark!Dany: after season 8 of the show there were fics featuring a dark or mad Daenerys, in fics where Jorah was present he was either upset by Dany's turn and tried to help her, or he turns dark himself, because of his undying love for her.


  • Bear and the Maiden Fair: "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" is a song in the Game of Thrones universe. Jorah and Daenerys are sometimes called the Bear and the Maiden Fair in fanworks because his House sigil is a bear and she has light colored hair
