Appearance and Character
Hugh was tall and huge, with hands strong enough to twist steel bars. He wielded a warhammer.
Hugh fought valiantly in the Battle in the Gullet for the blacks, and was named Lord of Bitterbridge afterwards. However, Hugh, along with Ulf the White, defected to the greens at the Treasons of Tumbleton. Together they are known as the Two Betrayers. Hugh aimed to become a king. Prince Daeron Targaryen threw wine in his face when he made his claim known, and Hugh threatened to beat the boy. The next day Hugh wore a crown of black iron, which Ser Roger Corne knocked off. Hugh nailed three horseshoes to Roger's skull. The ensuing fight between Hugh's and Roger's supporters led to three dead and twelve wounded.
