The Hedge Knight
Ser Humfrey participated in the Tourney of Ashford, beginning the tourney as one of the champions. In the first tilt he was challenged by Lord Medgar Tully whom he knocked from the saddle on the second lance, finally defeating him with sword afoot.
During the first day of the tourney he had humbled fourteen knights, each one of them formidable.
In the final tilt of the day, he was challenged by Prince Aerion Targaryen. During the first course Prince Aerion’s lance took his horse just above the armor that protected his breastbone, and exploded out of the back of his neck in a gout of bright blood. Ser Humfrey tried to leap free, but a foot caught in a stirrup and they heard his shriek as his leg was crushed between the splintered fence and falling horse. Lord Ashford declared Ser Humfrey the victor and awarded him Prince Aerion’s courser, but even so, he will not be able to continue. His leg was broken in two places. Prince Baelor Targaryen sent his own maester to tend him.
Ser Humfrey joined the side of Ser Duncan the Tall in the Trial of Seven for revenge, wanting to get even with Prince Aerion Targaryen. He was seriously wounded in the trial and died of his wounds later.
