Biter is one of the criminals Yoren recruits to the Night's Watch when he cleans out the dungeons of King’s Landing.


Biter is enormous and bald, with soft, doughy flesh. His tongue had been cut and he does not speak, except to hiss. His teeth have been filed into points.[2] His weight is enough to make a courser look half-ready to collapse when riding.[3]


Biter was found as an orphaned child by Rorge, who raised him ferally to fight in Rorge's dog and bear fighting pit in Flea Bottom.[4][5]

Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

Biter is one of three known criminals imprisoned in the black cells.[6] Yoren considers him so dangerous that he keeps him chained in a wagon, along with Jaqen H'ghar and Rorge, for the journey to the Wall.[7]

When Yoren's band is attacked at the Gods Eye by raiders led by Ser Amory Lorch, Biter and his companions find themselves trapped in the wagon in the middle of a fire, but Arya Stark, before escaping herself, throws an axe into the wagon so that they could break free and save themselves.[8] Biter and his companions manage to escape and come into Ser Amory's service, eventually arriving at Harrenhal.[3]

At Jaqen H'ghar's request, Biter and Rorge reluctantly agree to help Arya free the northmen prisoners taken by the Brave Companions, because she had saved their lives. Afterwards, they join the Brave Companions, staying in Harrenhal.[9]

A Storm of Swords

Rorge tells Jaime that Biter chewed the breasts and nipples off a septa sometime during their foraging and pillaging as part of the Brave Companions.[10]

A Feast for Crows

After the death of Vargo Hoat, leader of the Brave Companions, Biter travels with Rorge alongside remnants of the Companions and participates in the sacking of Saltpans.

At the inn at the crossroads, after Rorge duels with and is slain by Brienne of Tarth, Biter quickly overpowers Brienne and begins savagely biting her face. He is stopped by Gendry, who drives a spear through the back of his neck, killing him.[11]
