A Storm of Swords
Bannen is one of those chosen to die by the conspirators who intend to kill Lord Commander Jeor Mormont due to his great tracking skills. Chett plans to have Lark and his cousins murder Bannen. However, their plans fail when the Others attack the Night's Watch. Bannen's foot is wounded during the ensuing Battle of the Fist of the First Men. Kedge Whiteye later tries to save Bannen by chopping off his mangled foot, but the scout dies from the wound at Craster's Keep.
