Quick Biography

Sandor is the younger of the two Clegane brothers. When he was six, he picked up a toy that his older and already hulking and sadistic brother Gregor had discarded to play with. His brother decided that this was not acceptable and shoved Sandor's face into a brazier, holding it there until he was hauled off. Somehow Sandor survived, but he was scarred for the rest of his life by awful burns on one side of his face and a fear of fire. His sole goal in life has been to kill his brother for years. Chosen as Joffrey's personal guard, he became known as "Joffrey's Hound" and was a savage and nearly unbeatable swordsman. At the Battle of the Blackwater, he was sent into battle amid wildfire, which can't be quenched by ordinary means, and consequently deserted House Lannister. On his way north he was captured by the Brotherhood Without Banners, and in trial by combat defeated their leader Beric Dondarrion. Returning later, he captured Arya Stark with the aim of taking her to ransom to her elder brother and mother. When the Red Wedding occurred, he turned back to head for the Vale. At an inn, he ran into some of his brother's men, fought and killed them with the help of Arya, and was severely wounded in the process. When his wounds festered, he begged Arya to kill him, but she turned and left him, presumably to die.


He might have been handsome, though it's difficult to say. His face is largely expressionless, stony. No hair grows on the burned side of his head, but he wears it brushed over. A large and burly man, Sandor is strongly muscled and undeniably built for fighting. The most noticeable feature, though, is his face, half covered in burn scars that left little to no feeling on that side of his face.


Savage, vicious, and brutal, Sandor is known as the Hound for more reasons than one. He's often referred to as a mad dog, and has a default and continual setting of pissed off at anyone and everything. He despises the hypocrisy of knighthood. A quote from the books sums it up - "…this was a bitter, tormented soul, a sinner who mocked both gods and men. He fought, but took no joy in victory. He served, but took no pride in service. He drank, to drown his woes in a sea of wine. He did not love, nor was he loved himself." Sandor expects nothing because that way he won't be disappointed. He believes in no one, including himself, and is pretty much the ultimate in pessimism.
