According to EW.com, which first reported the casting, Hizdahr is the young heir of a well-established Meereenese family.

To avoid spoiling The Unsullied among you, this is all we’ll say of Fry’s character (at least, based on the books): He shows up in A Dance With Dragons, the fifth installment in the series of novels on which Thrones is based, and he figures prominently in Khaleesi’s life for a good chunk of time.
