A Storm of Swords
Blane 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 wights attacking the Night's Watch. Blane commands a group of Shadow Tower men during the fight at the Fist; it is unknown if he survives the battle.
