A Storm of Swords
Oppo and Penny were hired by a man known as Oswell to entertain the guests in King's Landing during Joffrey Baratheon's wedding to Margaery Tyrell by riding a pig and a dog while in painted wooden armor. Unknown to the pair this stunt is arranged by Petyr Baelish in order to provoke a quarrel between Tyrion Lannister and Joffrey in order to add further false evidence against the dwarf when he would be accused of Joffrey's murder.
A Dance with Dragons
Quentyn Martell sees Oppo and his sister perform whilst in Volantis. Oppo is later killed by sailors from Westeros who believe him to be Tyrion Lannister.
The Winds of Winter
At the start of the Battle of Slaver's Bay, as they ready themselves, Penny tells Tyrion Oppo thought Cersei Lannister was beautiful when he saw her when they jousted for King Joffrey Baratheon. Tyrion thinks privately to himself that Groat was a stunted little lickspittle with a stupid name.
His blood is on my sister’s hands, and the hands of the brutes who killed him.
