Biography

Background

Chella, daughter of Cheyk, is the leader of the Black Ears, one of the hill tribes living in the foothills of the Mountains of the Moon on the western edge of the Vale of Arryn. She is not of remarkable stature, but wears a necklace of ears around her neck, with each ear coming from a slain foe. Her success in battle has seen her rise high amongst the hill tribes.

Season 1

Chella accompanies Shagga, Timett, Tyrion Lannister and Bronn to the Lannister army encampment when Tyrion promises the hill tribes weapons and autonomy from the Eyrie. Tywin Lannister agrees to honor the bargain Tyrion has made with them.[1] The Black Ears take part in the Battle of the Green Fork, helping the Lannister forces win the engagement, and several are seen cutting ears off the fallen foes on the battlefield.[2]

Season 2

Chella and her men escort Tyrion to King's Landing where he becomes Acting Hand of the King on behalf of Tywin.[3]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the Black Ears are noted for their habit of collecting the ears of fallen foes. Chella has forty-six ears on her necklace, and boasts that her sons have nearly fifty between them. She hasn't necessarily killed all of their owners; it is common practice for her tribe to cut the ears off of defeated prisoners as trophies, but they often let them leave with their lives.
