|Book(s)||A Dance with Dragons (appears)|
Dick wears his worldly wealth upon his person and a lord's ransom in golden arm rings.
Dick is a Westerosi exile. His surname Cole is of a house that was once prominent in the histories of the Seven Kingdoms. He may or may not be of House Cole, as in the free companies a man can call himself whatever he chooses. He may be related to another serjeant in the company, Will Cole.
A Dance with Dragons
Dick is present during Jon Connington’s rendezvous with the Golden Company three miles south of Volon Therys. Like the rest of the company, he swears his allegiance to Aegon Targaryen before they invade Westeros.
