Appearance and Character

Andy Kellegher in HBO's interpretation

He is tall, yet not heavily muscled.[1] He has a thick, black, spade-shaped beard that is neatly trimmed, covering his jaws and jowls. His head is more bald than not.[2]

He is a grim and methodical fighter,[1] but Arya Stark does not believe him to be as evil as his more violent comrades.[2]

Recent Events

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.[2] For this, Arya adds him to her prayer kill list.[2]

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.[3] He is the standard bearer of Ser Gregor and is seen wearing Gendry's bull helm when leaving, supposedly having taken it from Dunsen.[3]

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.[4]

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.[5] 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.[6]

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.[1] A fight ensued and the three were killed, with Polliver being slain by Sandor. Arya retrieves needle from his corpse.[1]

A Feast for Crows

Ser Jaime Lannister discovers that Ser Gregor had named Polliver as his castellan after his departure, but Polliver was killed by Sandor, leaving no one in charge at Harrenhal.[7]
