A Feast for Crows

Lord Benedar is among the powerful Vale lords to sign the document of the Lords Declarant, which demands the handover of Lord Robert Arryn and the dismissal of his councilors. He is the first of the Lords Declarant to arrive at the Gates of the Moon and begin the blockade, preventing fresh food from going up to the Eyrie. [1]

When the Lords Declarant travel to the Eyrie, Benedar cannot climb the last stage to the castle and has to be drawn up in the basket. During the parley with Lord Petyr Baelish, Benedar is distrustful of the Lord Protector of the Vale and wants the young Lord Robert to leave the Eyrie.[1]

Benedar reconciles with Petyr and is a surprise guest at Lord Lyonel Corbray's wedding in Gulltown, which most of the other Lords Declarant shun.[2]

While there, he met with Petyr and Lord Gerold Grafton to discuss selling their reserves of food. Benedar thought the current prices were fair, but Petyr wanted to wait for the demand to go higher. Alayne Stone arrives and informs them the Waynwoods have arrived with Ser Harrold Hardyng. Benedar is stunned that Lord Yohn Royce let Harrold come to the tourney.[3]
