As far as I remember Beric got his duty from Ned Stark. What did Beric do to be in Arya's kill list?


Because he sold Gendry out to Melisandre.

Note that he's not on her kill list in the books, only in the TV show.

The full list from the show is as follows (more or less copied from here; spoilers including from S7):

  • The Hound
    Why: For killing Mycah, the butcher's boy.
    Status: Alive. Although Arya likely believes otherwise after she left him for dead following his battle with Brienne of Tarth.

  • Meryn Trant
    Why: For (presumably) killing Syrio Forel.
    Status: Dead. Arya slit his throat in a Braavosi brothel where Meryn was abusing underage girls.

  • Cersei Lannister
    Why: For her role in Ned Stark's death.
    Status: Alive - for now.

  • Joffrey
    Why: For ordering Ned Stark's execution.
    Status: Dead. Joffrey was poisoned by Olenna Tyrell and Petyr Baelish at his wedding to Margaery. Unfortunately, Arya's sister Sansa was suspected of the murder and had to go on the run.

  • Ilyn Payne
    Why: For executing Ned Stark.
    Status: Alive.

  • Polliver
    Why: For killing Lommy, stealing Needle and the torture at Harrenhal.
    Status: Dead. Arya killed him after a chance encounter at an inn.

  • The Mountain
    Why: For the torture at Harrenhal
    Status: Alive-ish. Qyburn resurrected the Mountain as Ser Robert Strong after the warrior was fatally poisoned by Oberyn Martell.

  • Rorge
    Why: For the torture at Harrenhal and threatening to rape her.
    Status: Dead. Arya killed him after Rorge and Biter attacked her and the Hound.

  • Walder Frey
    Why: For orchestrating the Red Wedding
    Status: Dead. As of the Season 6 finale Arya used her assassin skills (including face-changing!) to infiltrate Riverrun and kill him

  • Tywin Lannister
    Why: For orchestrating the Red Wedding.
    Status: Dead. Tyrion killed his father with a crossbow while Tywin was using the toilet.

  • Melisandre
    Why: For kidnapping Gendry.
    Status: Alive and old af.

  • Beric Dondarrion
    Why: For selling Gendry to Melisandre.
    Status: Alive. (Although Beric has died and been resurrected at least six times.)

  • Thoros of Myr
    Why: For selling Gendry to Melisandre.
    Status: Dead. Mauled by undead polar bear. Succumbs to wounds and cold.

  • Her list is too confusing to me and don't make much sense. – Ankur Rathee Jun 15 '16 at 11:02

    Syrio Forel is not dead ( not confirmed at least) – Ankur Rathee Jun 15 '16 at 11:38

    @AnkitSharma Trant meant to kill him, and almost certainly did kill him, which is enough to get on Arya's kill list. – Rand al'Thor Jun 15 '16 at 11:52

    I think Arya later on removed the Hound from the list. Or maybe that was only in the books, not sure about that. And I think she didn't remove him because she thinks he's dead but because she actually forgave him. See also scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/4657/… – Ivo Beckers Jun 15 '16 at 16:09

    @AnkitSharma It's not confirmed, but the most reasonable assumption is to believe he is dead: one killer with armor and a steel sword enters the room where Syrio is unarmored and only has a wooden sword. The killer leaves the room alone. What additional evidence do we need? :) – Andres F. Jun 16 '16 at 0:30
