Appearance and Character

See also: Images of Mord

Mord is a large man, slow-witted brute, who's fond of tormenting the prisoners, telling them how they are going to fall out of the cells to their deaths. He has small, dark eyes, rotting brown teeth and the left side of his face has a scar from where an axe cut off his ear and part of his cheek. He has a large belly and thick, stubby-fingered hands.[2]

Recent Events

A Game of Thrones

When Tyrion Lannister was brought up to the Eyrie, he was thrown in one of the Sky Cells, where Mord was his guard. Mord takes Tyrion's magnificent shadowskin cloak. Mord routinely brutalized him, until one day Tyrion bribed him with the promise of gold if only Mord would tell Lady Arryn that Tyrion would confess his crimes.[2] After his champion won the trial, Tyrion paid Mord and offered another reward if he would ever come to Casterly Rock. Unknown to Mord, Tyrion was thinking about repaying his treatment by Mord in kind.[3]

A Feast for Crows

When we see Mord again, he has filled his teeth with the gold Tyrion paid him. Lord Petyr Baelish uses Mord to convince Marillion, through painful means and exposure in the sky cells, to tell Lord Nestor Royce what Lord Petyr Baelish wanted Marillion to tell him.[4]

Mord was one of the last to leave the Eyrie and descend to the Gates of the Moon, having the job of killing the oxen before he left.[5]
