"They burned almost everything in the Riverlands. Our fields... our granaries... our homes! They took our women. Then they... took 'em again. When they was done them... butchered them as if they was animals. They covered... our children in pitch... and lit them on fire."
―Joss recounts Gregor Clegane's atrocities to Eddard Stark.[src]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the handful of surviving smallfolk from the town of Sherrer are brought before the Iron Throne by a trio of knights from the Riverlands (Karyl Vance, Marq Piper, and Raymun Darry). The commoner who speaks directly to Ned Stark, and indicates that Gregor Clegane was responsible for the attack, is a brewer from Sherrer named Joss. The TV series credits only listed him as "Riverlands refugee", but it is clear which book character he was portraying.
