A Clash of Kings
A Storm of Swords
Blane is one of the commanders acting as advisors to Lord Commander Jeor Mormont, and is the only high-ranking member not to be high-born. He is chosen to die by the conspirators who wish to leave the Night's Watch due to his position as the leader of the Shadow Tower men in Qhorin Halfhand's absence. Chett tasks Dirk with killing Blane, but their plans are interrupted by the Others attacking the Night's Watch.
