Pello's beard is colored bright green, but it is starting to grow out grey. He is taller and bigger than Lem Lemoncloak.[7]


Tyrion Lannister learned some of the tongue of Tyrosh from a sellsword at Casterly Rock.[8] It is unknown if he is related to Greenbeard or the commander of Ser Forley Prester's freeriders.[9]
