Contents

Appearance

Chett has a red face with many boils and a large cyst on his neck.[2]

History

Chett was born around Hag's Mire. His father collected leeches and sold them to maesters. Chett learned the trade from his father. He was an ugly boy and so girls did not take interest in him. He picked flowers for a girl named Bessa who had a reputation of not being picky, but she spurned and insulted him. Chett became so angry that he killed her. He was caught by one of Lord Walder Frey's bastards and he was sent to the Wall. He has been a steward assisting Maester Aemon for four years.[1]

Recent Events

A Game of Thrones

At the Wall, Chett is a steward whose job is to care for the ravens and old Maester Aemon with Clydas. This was a rather comfortable position, but it is taken away from him by Jon Snow, who advises Aemon that the job is better suited for the literate Samwell Tarly.[2] After that, Chett is assigned to the kennels.[3]

A Clash of Kings

Chett takes care of the dogs on the Great Ranging beyond the Wall. He and Lark the Sisterman come upon Jon Snow when he is talking to Gilly, one of Craster's wives.[4] Jon later hears Lark and him talking about mutiny.[5]

A Storm of Swords

During the expedition to look for First Ranger Benjen Stark and Ser Waymar Royce, morale is low. Fourteen[1] brothers conspire to desert, including the ringleader Chett, Dirk, Softfoot, Ollo Lophand, Sweet Donnel Hill, Lark the Sisterman, Lark's cousin Rolley of Sisterton, Clubfoot Karl, Maslyn, Small Paul, and Sawwood. To make sure they will not be caught, they plan to kill some of their Night's Watch brothers:

Chett personally intends to murder Samwell Tarly. After the killings he plans to set free his dogs, which would frighten the horses, running them off. Chett has not fed the dogs for a few days so they will be extra fierce. In the confusion that would follow, the deserters could run off with the remaining horses and the food they had horded.[1]

Unfortunately for the conspirators, it begins to snow a few hours before they planned to set their plan into action. Chett realizes that in fresh snow they would be easily followed and would not make good time, so he cancels the plan. Regardless, he decides to kill Samwell out of spite. At the moment Chett finds Samwell, however, a signal is blown that Others have been sighted.[1]

When the Others attack the Night's Watch, a trusting Samwell asks Chett for help in sending off ravens, but the kennel keeper runs away.[6] Chett is killed during the Battle of the Fist of the First Men, as Samwell later sees him as a wight at an unnamed wildling village. A flock of ravens attacks the undead Chett and other wights, allowing Samwell to be rescued by Coldhands.[7]
