Appearance and Character
- See also: Images of Timett
During the rite of manhood for his clan, Timett burned one of his eyes out of its socket with a hot knife. Because the typical sacrifice for the rite is a nipple or finger, the impressed clan elders immediately named him a red hand of the tribe. Timett was young for this position, but he inspired fear even among his fellow clansmen.
A Game of Thrones
Timett joins the group of Vale mountain clansmen who choose to follow Tyrion Lannister and join the army of Lord Tywin Lannister. He serves as the leader of the Burned Men in the group. Timett fights in the battle on the Green Fork, vaulting from his horse when it dies during the charge. After the battle, he loots the bodies of the slain with his Burned Men.
A Clash of Kings
Timett follows Tyrion to King's Landing. While gambling on the Street of Silver, Timett catches a wineseller's son cheating at tiles. Timett pins the man's wrist to the table with a dagger and then tears out his throat barehanded.
A Storm of Swords
Timett attempts to return to King's Landing to serve Tyrion, but is driven off because of Tyrion's injury. He and his men instead return to the Mountains of the Moon with their plunder from Stannis Baratheon's camp at the Blackwater.
When Sandor Clegane attempts to enter the mountains to travel to the Eyrie, he is warned off by locals, one of whom states how ferocious the mountain clans have become after Timett One-Eye's return.
During the trial of Tyrion for the death of King Joffrey I Baratheon, Tyrion's lover Shae is the last witness for the Crown. She claims that Tyrion had ordered Timett and Shagga to forcefully bring her to Tyrion after the battle on the Green Fork. In actuality, she was a willing camp follower found by Bronn.
