A Clash of Kings

Hake journeys beyond the Wall as part of the great ranging,[6] and he prepares stews[3] and soups[7] for the Night's Watch. When Dolorous Edd disparages the smell of Hake's stew, the cook pats his dirk in response.[3]

Hake prepares hardbread and a bowl of bean and bacon soup for the Watch at the Fist of the First Men.[8] Following the fight at the Fist, Samwell Tarly recalls that Hake has been lost.[2]

When wights attack Samwell and Gilly at an abandoned wildling village, Sam thinks that one of the undead may be Hake, although it is difficult to tell because half of the walking corpse's head is missing. The survivors only manage to escape with the help of Coldhands; Sam sees ravens plucking flesh from Hake's shattered head.[9]


Dywen: Seems to me like it smells ... well ... cold.
Hake: Your head's as wooden as your teeth. There's no smell to cold.[3]
