|Book(s)||A Feast for Crows (Appears)|
Hyle has a plain face with brown hair, hazel eyes and a scar near his left ear. He is one head shorter than Brienne, who is about six and a half feet tall, putting him at roughly five feet and eight inches in height.
While at Highgarden, Ser Hyle was among the knights that started the wager on who was going to take Brienne of Tarth's maidenhead. In his attempt to woo her, he brought her apples and carrots for her horses and a blue silk plume for her helm. He told her the camp gossip and said things to make her smile. When Lord Randyll heard about this wager, he had it stopped. Ser Hyle knows of at least one bastard that he has fathered, a girl.
A Feast for Crows
Ser Hyle encounters Brienne of Tarth at the gates of Maidenpool, where he laments his current predicament. Hyle follows Brienne through Crackclaw Point and catches up with her at the Whispers, where she slays Shagwell, Pyg, and Timeon, formerly of the Brave Companions.
After Lord Randyll Tarly dismisses Hyle from his service, he follows Brienne through the Riverlands, stays with her at the Quiet Isle and visits the destruction of Saltpans. While at the crossroads inn, Hyle asks for Brienne's hand in marriage, but she rejects him.
After the encounter with other remnants of the Brave Companions at the inn, Hyle is taken prisoner by those sworn to Lady Stoneheart. He is judged guilty for allying himself with House Lannister and sentenced to death. He offers to fight Ser Jaime Lannister in Brienne's stead but is rejected. He is hanged alongside Podrick Payne and Brienne, although Brienne shouts a word to intervene.
