Pello's beard is colored bright green, but it is starting to grow out grey. He is taller and bigger than Lem Lemoncloak.
Tyrion Lannister learned some of the tongue of Tyrosh from a sellsword at Casterly Rock. It is unknown if he is related to Greenbeard or the commander of Ser Forley Prester's freeriders.
A Storm of Swords
It is probable that Greenbeard is a deserter from the War of the Five Kings
Arya Stark meets Greenbeard when he visits the Inn of the Kneeling Man. He is among the members of the brotherhood that escort Arya to see Lord Beric Dondarrion, rather than to Riverrun as she desires. He speaks with Lady Ravella Smallwood at Acorn Hall and with the ghost at High Heart.
Greenbeard is abed with Tansy at the Peach when the Mad Huntsman returns to Stoney Sept with Sandor Clegane. After meeting up with Lord Beric in the hollow hill and witnessing the trial by combat of Sandor, Pello is sent with the Mad Huntsman to buy grain south of the Mander with the gold confiscated from the Hound.
A Feast for Crows
Greenbeard is included among the followers of the late Beric Dondarrion, rather than the supporters of Lady Stoneheart.
