Who is your favourite ultra-minor character? If need be you can state why you like him/her by providing a quote or stating the scene.

Ultra-minor character means a character which has only appeared in one or two scenes in the entire series.

Mine is the Unnamed Florent Bastard.

 

Those who had changed their allegiance during the battle needed only to swear fealty to Joffrey, but the ones who had fought for Stannis until the bitter end were compelled to speak. Their words decided their fate. If they begged forgiveness for their treasons and promised to serve loyally henceforth, Joffrey welcomed them back into the king's peace and restored them to all their lands and rights. A handful remained defiant, however. "Do not imagine this is done, boy," warned one, the bastard son of some Florent or other. "The Lord of Light protects King Stannis, now and always. All your swords and all your scheming shall not save you when his hour comes."

"Your hour is come right now." Joffrey beckoned to Ser Ilyn Payne to take the man out and strike his head off. But no sooner had that one been dragged away than a knight of solemn mien with a fiery heart on his surcoat shouted out, "Stannis is the true king! A monster sits the Iron Throne, an abomination born of incest!"

"Be silent," Ser Kevan Lannister bellowed.

The knight raised his voice instead. "Joffrey is the black worm eating the heart of the realm! Darkness was his father, and death his mother! Destroy him before he corrupts you all! Destroy them all, queen whore and king worm, vile dwarf and whispering spider, the false flowers. Save yourselves!" One of the gold cloaks knocked the man off his feet, but he continued to shout. "The scouring fire will come! King Stannis will return! "

Joffrey lurched to his feet. "I'm king! Kill him! Kill him now! I command it." He chopped down with his hand, a furious, angry gesture . . . and screeched in pain when his arm brushed against one of the sharp metal fangs that surrounded him. The bright crimson samite of his sleeve turned a darker shade of red as his blood soaked through it. "Mother!" he wailed.

With every eye on the king, somehow the man on the floor wrested a spear away from one of the gold cloaks, and used it to push himself back to his feet. "The throne denies him!" he cried. "He is no king!"

Cersei was running toward the throne, but Lord Tywin remained still as stone. He had only to raise a finger, and Ser Meryn Trant moved forward with drawn sword. The end was quick and brutal. The gold cloaks seized the knight by the arms. "No king!" he cried again as Ser Meryn drove the point of his longsword through his chest.

ulmer

all of the old rangers Dywin, Giant and so on

 

Also I love dany's bloodriders and they have pretty much become ultra minor characters 

 

I also like the knight that jaime details to escort edmure to casterly rock (I can't think of his name dammit) "He had a face like an in keep, and like most in keeps he was no mans fool." best description of a person in the damn series

I mention this guy once every dozen threads, but Aegon Frey! not Jinglebell! He's an outlaw who was disinherited. Aenys' son, and we've never met him, he was an outlaw before Robb ever came down. I still want him to show up in the riverlands as either part of the BwB all along, or I want them to get their hands on him somehow. I just want the guy to show up.

Oh, but Ulmer is actually truly the shit.

Wow he is nicely detailed for a ultra-minor character.

Aegon the Bloodborn. I just like his name. I hope he shows up and takes the twins. I don't want any houses to go extinct.

The dwarf priest in AFFC who meets Brienne. Has a nice conversation with her and they seem to strike up a budding friendship almost before he goes on. Later he shows up as a severed head presented to Cersei.

Ned Dayne, if he counts, since I'm pretty sure he only has the one scene with Arya. Not as badass as the others mentioned, but he was such a sweetheart and I loved him. Honestly, Sansa should get with him. He's totally like someone from a song.

Yeah, that too, his name is like the coolest of all the Freys.

Edric Dayne is more than an ultra minor character, I hope. The Daynes are mentioned too much and he was in too pivotal of a moment in Arya's story to just fade away. I'm totally down with Edric/Sansa.

The Reader would count as a very minor character wouldn't he? He's definitely interesting.

I wouldn't say Dagmer is ultra minor though, and I definitively prefer him over Andrik.

Oswell Whent. His helm has a black bat with its wings spread, he's known for his dark humor and his only line in the books is a classic.
