Title Novice
Book A Feast for Crows (appears)

A gravedigger is a novice on the Quiet Isle.[1] His true name is not known. As his moniker suggests he digs graves on the island.


The gravedigger is bigger than Brienne of Tarth and lame. Like the other brothers he is cowled in dun-and-brown so his face is hidden.[1]

Recent Events

A Feast for Crows

When Brienne of Tarth and her companions arrive on the Quiet Isle they walk uphill passing a lichyard on the way. There she notices a brother bigger than her struggling to dig Brother Clement's grave. Brother Narbert chides him to be more watchful when some flung soil spatters at their feet. The gravedigger also drops his spade and scratches Dog's ear.[1]

When they meet the Elder Brother, he mentions that their gravedigger knows no rest as many corpses are washing up on the isle's shores.[1]

A little later Brienne and her companions take supper in the Quiet Isle's septry. The novices are tasked with serving and Brienne again notices the limping gravedigger they had encountered on the hill.[1]


Too many corpses, these days. Our gravedigger knows no rest.[1]


Several clues point to the possibility that the gravedigger may be Sandor Clegane.
