Rorge is a criminal and later becomes a member of the Brave Companions.
Appearance and Character
He is described as squat, bulky, and hairy, with black hair covering most of his body. He is also described as thick and powerful.
He is missing his nose, and the nasal bar of his iron half-helm does not completely conceal the hole.
A Clash of Kings
He is taken from the Black Cells and bound for the Wall in Yoren's band alongside Arya Stark, Gendry, Hot Pie, Lommy Greenhands, Jaqen H'ghar, and Biter, among others. Yoren considers him so dangerous that he keeps him chained in a wagon, along with Jaqen H'ghar and Biter, for the journey to the Wall.
When Yoren's band is attacked by Ser Amory Lorch and Yoren is killed, Arya saves Rorge's life, along with Biter and Jaqen H'ghar, by giving them an axe to break free with as the room burns around their wagon. The three join the Brave Companions for a time, under Vargo Hoat. They help Arya free the northmen held captive at Harrenhal, though Rorge and Biter do it reluctantly and only because Jaqen requested their help.
A Storm of Swords
Rorge is part of the foraging company who captured Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth in the Riverlands. He immediately threatens Brienne with rape and severely beats Jaime into submission. He later claims the bloodstained surcoat off the corpse of Cleos Frey.
Rorge is one of the many Brave Companions who remain behind at Harrenhal after several failed foraging runs. He is present when Brienne of Tarth is thrown into the bear pit and threatens Jaime once more when he comes back to save her, but Vargo Hoat orders him to stand down.
A Feast for Crows
After Hoat's death, Rorge, Biter, and some of the remaining Companions travel east to the town of Saltpans where Rorge finds and dons the Hound's helm once worn by Sandor Clegane. He wears the helm whilst brutally sacking Saltpans, which results in Clegane being blamed for the attack. At the Inn at the Crossroads, Rorge duels with and is slain by Brienne of Tarth.
