Cotter has small, close-set eyes, a broken nose and a pox ravaged face. He has a widow's peak and a sparse, rough beard. He is lean, hard and wiry.
A Storm of Swords
Cotter captures Rattleshirt at the Long Barrow. When Stannis Baratheon lands his men at Eastwatch, Cotter leads him and his men along hidden paths which allow Stannis to take the wildlings attacking Castle Black unawares. He puts his name forth as a candidate for the position of Lord Commander of the Night's Watch when they hold the choosing.
A Dance with Dragons
Captaining the Talon, Cotter sails from Eastwatch towards Hardhome with eleven ships by the command of Lord Commander Jon Snow. He is to rescue the wildlings brought there by the vision of the woods witch Mother Mole, who saw in her vision that ships would come to take the wildlings south. By the time Cotter arrives at Hardhome, he has lost five ships and the wildlings are eating their own dead. The undead are lurking in the woods and in the waters. Cotter sends a raven to Jon Snow, pleading him to send help by land, since the weather was very harsh on the seas. His current fate is unknown.
