A fat young orphan boy, who sold baked pies with his mother until she died. He’s nicknamed for the cry he used when selling his mother’s pies. Left to fend for himself, he travels North to join the Night’s Watch.
Hot Pie is introduced as one of the recruits Yoren is taking to the Night’s Watch. He claims to Arya—whom he believes is a boy—that he killed someone, and tries to force her to give him her sword Needle. She draws it and points it at him, frightening him, and then Gendry sends him and his friend Lommy scurrying off.
