Appearance and Character

Dolorous Edd appears to have been born to a lesser branch of the House Tollet, as he speaks of being raised in a crude house such as the poorer of the smallfolk might have. He was a squire recruited to the Night's Watch by Yoren.
A Clash of Kings
A Storm of Swords
Once at Craster's Keep Edd is one of the few men that takes Samwell Tarly seriously when he tells the men he slew an Other with his dragonglass dagger. Edd, along with Dywen, makes Sam and Grenn tell Lord Commander Jeor Mormont the tale. After the death of the Lord Commander during the mutiny over food, Edd flees with Grenn, Giant and other loyalists back to the Wall.
A Dance with Dragons
Edd carries on his duties as the Lord Commander's steward. He is one of the men brought along as muscle to assist Lord Commander Jon Snow in escorting Janos Slynt out of Castle Black to carry out his duties as garrison commander of Greyguard. Edd and Iron Emmett escort Slynt outside for his execution.
|“||The dead are likely dull fellows, full of tedious complaints—the ground's too cold, my gravestone should be larger, why does he get more worms than I do...||”|
|“||He said for you to join him. Best leave the wolf outside, he looks hungry enough to eat one of Craster’s children. Well, truth be told, I’m hungry enough to eat one of Craster’s children, so long as he was served hot. Go on, I’ll see to your horse. If it’s warm and dry inside, don’t tell me, I wasn’t asked in.||”|
|“||Eddison: Does this mud look like shit to you? Could it be that this whole hill is made of Craster’s shit?
Jon: Well, I hear he’s been here a long time.
|“||Eddison: I’d give all the gold in Casterly Rock to sleep in a bed again.
Jon: You’d call that a bed?
|“||Does it rain in hell, I wonder? Perhaps Craster would like a nice hat instead.||”|
|“||See, the Old Bear’s clever. If we get the wildling well and truly drunk, perhaps he’ll only cut off an ear when he tries to slay us with that axe. I have two ears but only one head.||”|
|“||Some dogs crawled atop me during the night. My cloak was almost dry when one of them pissed in it. Or perhaps it was Brown Bernarr. Have you noticed that the rain stopped the instant I had a roof above me? It will start again now that I’m back out. Gods and dogs alike delight to piss on me.||”|
|“||Grenn: I know this wood as well as any man alive, and I tell you, I wouldn’t care to ride through it alone tonight. Can’t you smell it?
Eddison: All I smell is the shit of two hundred horses. And this stew. Which has a similar aroma, now that I come to sniff it.
- Edd to Grenn
|“||Do you know the difference between a wildling who's a friend to the Watch and one who's not? Our enemies leave our bodies for the crows and the wolves. Our friends bury us in secret graves.||”|
|“||Eddison: There are worse ways to die than warm and drunk. I knew a brother drowned himself in wine once. It was a poor vintage, though, and his corpse did not improve it.
Jon: You drank the wine?
|“||Eddison: Brother, just because it happened that way for you doesn’t mean Samwell will suffer the same.
Chett: What are you talking about, Tollett?
|“||Once they figure a way to work a dead horse, we'll be next. Likely I'll be the first too. 'Edd' they'll say, 'dying's no excuse for laying down no more, so get on up and take this spear, you've got the watch tonight.' Well, I shouldn't be so gloomy. Might be I'll die before they work it out.||”|
|“||Eddison: I never win anything. The gods always smiled on Watt, though. When the wildlings knocked him off the Bridge of Skulls, somehow he landed in a nice deep pool of water. How lucky was that, missing all those rocks?
Grenn: Was it a long fall? Did landing in the pool of water save his life?
|“||Cotter: We’ll defend the Wall to the last man.
Eddison: Probably me.
- Edd to Cotter Pyke
|“||I just want to say to whoever is voting for me that I would certainly make an awful Lord Commander. But so would all these others.||”|
|“||Samwell: Jon wants to see me?
Eddison: As to that, I could not say. I never wanted to see half the things I’ve seen, and I’ve never seen half the things I wanted to. I don’t think wanting comes into it. You’d best go all the same.
- Edd to Samwell Tarly
|“||If my wet nurse looked like her, I’d still be on the teat. Mine had whiskers.||”|
|“||And to you, Sam, your boat’s not like to sink, I don’t think. Boats only sink when I’m aboard.||”|
|“||My old septon used to say that books are dead men talking. Dead men should keep quiet, is what I say. No one wants to hear a dead man’s yabber.||”|
|“||Careful of the rats, my lord. They make an awful squeal if you step on them. My mother used to make a similar sound when I was a boy. She must have had some rat in her, now that I think of it. Brown hair, beady little eyes, liked cheese. Might be she had a tail too, I never looked to see.||”|
|“||Eddison: Now I understand why King Stannis let the wildlings through the Wall. He means for us to eat them.
Jon: It will not come to that.
|“||Eddison: I had a frightening dream last night, m’lord. You were my steward, fetching my food and cleaning up my leavings. I was lord commander, with never a moment’s peace.
Jon: Your nightmare, my life.
|“||Place was overrun with rats when we moved in. The spearwives killed the nasty buggers. Now the place is overrun with spearwives. There’s days I want the rats back.||”|
