"When I was a child, Oberyn came to take me to court. I'd never seen this man and yet he called himself my father. My mother wept, said "I was too young... and a girl." Oberyn tossed his spear at my feet and said, "Girl or boy, we fight our battles, but The Gods let us choose our weapons." My father pointed to the spear and then to my mothers tears. I made my choice long ago."
