Appearance and Character
- See also: Images of Qarl
When Asha Greyjoy first met Qarl in 293 AC or 294 AC, she called his attempt at growing a beard "peach fuzz". Since he had never seen a peach, she encouraged him to join her crew. They traded at Fair Isle, Lannisport, and the Arbor, and raided Lyseni pirates in the Stepstones. Qarl and Asha began sleeping together after sampling peaches at the Arbor.
A Clash of Kings
Qarl and two companions, Skyte and Uller, encounter Theon and Asha Greyjoy in Lordsport. There they recount the story of the death of Skyte's brother, Eldiss. Asha tells Theon that he should make them part of his crew.
A Feast for Crows
Qarl serves aboard Asha's ship, the Black Wind. During the kingsmoot, he wins the finger dance against Eldred Codd. Qarl is one of the champions for Asha at the kingsmoot, but Euron Greyjoy is instead chosen King of the Isles and the North.
A Dance with Dragons
Qarl sails to Deepwood Motte with Asha as she contemplates her next move. Qarl sleeps with Asha in Galbart Glover's bedchamber. He is captured along with Asha, Tris Botley, and several other ironborn by the army of Stannis Baratheon in the fight by Deepwood Motte.
