When the news of Lyanna Stark's abduction at the hands of Prince Rhaegar Targaryen reached her brother Brandon, Brandon took off for King's Landing with several companions, including Ethan. King Aerys II Targaryen had all men arrested at the Red Keep for threatening the life of the crown prince after Brandon had demanded that Rhaegar "come out and die". The fathers of Brandon and his companions were called to King's Landing to answer for the crimes of their sons. All but Ethan were executed.
Robert's Rebellion started shortly thereafter. At the end of the war, Ethan joined Lord Eddard Stark, Brandon's younger brother, when he marched south to lift the siege at Storm's End. From there, he accompanied Eddard to the tower of joy. He was slain at the tower of joy during a fight with the last three members of King Aerys II's Kingsguard.
