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.
A Clash of Kings
Biter is one of three known criminals imprisoned in the black cells. 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.
When Yoren's band is attacked at the 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. Biter and his companions manage to escape and somehow come into Ser Amory's service, eventually arriving at Harrenhal.
At Jaqen H'ghar's request, Biter and Rorge reluctantly agree to help Arya free some northmen prisoners taken by the Brave Companions, because she has saved their lives. Afterwards, they join the Brave Companions, staying in Harrenhal.
A Storm of Swords
Rorge tells Jaime that Biter chewed the breasts and nipples off of a septa sometime during their foraging and pillaging as part of the Brave Companions.
A Feast for Crows
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.
