Current Events

A Game of Thrones

During the Hand's tourney at King's Landing in celebration of Lord Eddard Stark's ascension to Hand of the King, Anguy wins the archery competition, outshooting Ser Balon Swann and Jalabhar Xho at a hundred paces and earning himself a sum of ten thousand golden dragons. He refuses an offer from Eddard to join the Hand's guard.[4] Afterwards he squanders his fortune on Jayde, Alayaya and Dancy (expensive whores from Chataya's brothel), roast swan, Arbor wine, and other lavish excesses.[6] As he is from the Dornish Marches, it is likely that he rides with Lord Beric Dondarrion when Eddard dispatches the Lightning Lord to stop Gregor Clegane.

A Storm of Swords

Anguy is with the brotherhood without banners party that captures Arya Stark and brings her to Beric in the hollow hill.[2][7] Like most members of the brotherhood, Anguy is now a follower of R'hllor.[7] He takes part in the battle at the burning septry with the Brave Companions, where Septon Utt is hanged.[6]

A Feast for Crows

After Beric's final death,[8] a part of the brotherhood, including Anguy, apparently go their separate way from those who chose to follow the resurrected, vengeful Lady Stoneheart.[5]
