Gyorg Lavode, a Dzur and Captain of the Lavodes was murdered at the beginning of Five Hundred Years After as part of the plots of Greycat to find a way back to Tortaalik's ear.

Although little is said of Gyorg during the course of the novels, one of the most moving scenes of the Khaavren Romances (see books) is Sethra Lavode and Tazendra's examination of his rooms in the palace.

Aliera e'Kieron and Sethra also first initially met while trying to examine his body.
