Biography

Background

Rorge is a criminal, forcibly recruited into the Night's Watch by Yoren during his visit to King's Landing. He is accompanying the rest of Yoren's new recruits northwards to the Wall.

Season 2

Rorge, alongside Biter and Jaqen H'ghar are kept inside a cage for their trip to the Wall. When Jaqen asks "Arry" (actually Arya) for water, Rorge demands beer and insults Arya, who says that he should have asked nicely and hits Rorge's hand with a stick. He recoils and then tries to grab Arya through the cage. Biter moves up behind Rorge and hisses as Rorge threatens Arya again.[1]

The group is resting in a barn when they are roused to arms by Yoren and told they are being attacked. As they rush outside one man trips and drops his torch, setting a fire near the prisoner wagon. They are met by Ser Amory Lorch and a force of men loyal to House Lannister. Lorch points out the Gold Cloaks with him and says that they have come for Gendry, a royal bastard. Lorch orders Yoren and the recruits to drop their weapons. Yoren remains defiant and Lorch orders him shot.[2]

Seeing their leader killed Gendry and many of the other recruits join the fight. Arya is distracted by Jaqen calling for help as the flames lick the bars of the cage. She hands him an axe before rushing to join the fray. They use it to escape the wagon. Gendry is overwhelmed and knocked down. As Arya runs round a corner she is knocked over and taken prisoner along with the other survivors.[2]

Rorge, Biter and Jaqen are inducted into the Lannister army. They serve at Harrenhal, where their former fellow recruits are also taken as captives. Arya approaches Rorge and Biter, she is looking for Jaqen. Rorge repeats his earlier threats and shows no acknowledgement of her saving his life. He calls her a filthy name and implies that Yoren was taking her to the wall in disguise for immoral purposes. When she asks about Jaqen, they look as if they are afraid of him. [3]

Behind the scenes

Fans have speculated that Rorge was one of three figures seen in the back of Yoren's wagon in the final episode of the first season. However, Andy Beckwith was not cast in the role until filming was underway on Season 2. Whether one of those characters was meant to be Rorge and the role has been effectively recast is not clear.

In the books

In the Song of Ice and Fire novels, Rorwasps described as thick, short and very hairy. He was a petty thug in King's Landing who at some time had lost his nose. To hide his missing nose, he wears a helm with a nose guard whenever he can. He ran a dog and bear-fighting pit in the city and had his protege Biter fight in the pit for money. The pit was shut down and both were arrested and cast into the cells of the Red Keep shortly before Yoren found them and forcibly recruited them into the Watch. Due to their dangerous nature, Rorge, Biter and Jaqen H'ghar are locked in a wagon for their journey northwards.

In the books, he and Biter rather unwillingly help Jaqen and Arya free the Northern prisoners, taking control of Harrenhal from Ser Amory Lorch and the Lannisters.
