Kennet was a maester who served Lord Cregan Stark at Winterfell. Kennet gathered information about the north and wrote Passages of the Dead, a study of northern burial methods.
Maester Kennet studied a giant's barrow near Long Lake which included obsidian arrowheads possibly used by children of the forest. In Passages of the Dead he recorded the legend of a curse placed on the Great Barrow to prevent any man from rivaling the First King.
Kennet also determined that the First Keep of Winterfell was raised after the arrival of the Andal invasion.
