A Clash of Kings
He is constantly coughing. When Arry wakes up one night, she thinks it is oddly calm, but she doesn't realize what she is missing is Pread's cough. They find the sellsword dead in the morning. He is the first of the group to die and only the fourth recruit Yoren has lost in thirty years as a wandering crow. Yoren strips the dead of his gear, distributing it among the group, handing Praed's longsword to Gendry. They bury Praed where he slept, with Tarber dropping a handful of acorns on his body first, so that an oak might grow to mark the place of the grave.
