Appearance and Character
A Clash of Kings
Polliver is one of Ser Gregor Clegane's men at arms and is part of the group that captures Arya Stark, Gendry and Hot Pie in the Riverlands. He takes Needle from Arya. For this, Arya adds him to her prayer kill list.
Polliver later departs Harrenhal alongside Tywin Lannister as part of Gregor Clegane's vanguard, unknowingly putting himself out of Arya's reach to choose him as her next target for Jaqen H'ghar. He is the standard bearer of Ser Gregor and is seen wearing Gendry's bull helm when leaving, supposedly having taken it from Dunsen.
Polliver participates in the Battle of the Fords under Ser Gregor Clegane's command, managing to cross the trident as one of his best men. He survives the battle at Stone Mill and successfully retreats when Ser Edmure Tully counter-attacks with his reserve.
A Storm of Swords
Polliver's atrocities are recalled by Arya, who informs Harwin and the Brotherhood Without Banners of his actions when his group captured her and Gendry near the God's Eye. He continues to be religiously included in Arya's death prayer list, though as time goes on she struggles to remember his face as well as the other marked members of Ser Gregor's men-at-arms.
After securing Harrenhal under The Mountain's command, Polliver, the Tickler and a Sarsfield squire visited the Inn at the Crossroads to "tickle" the innkeep before running into Sandor Clegane and Arya. A fight ensued and the three were killed, with Polliver being slain by Sandor. Arya retrieves needle from his corpse.
