A Clash of Kings
A Storm of Swords
A Feast for Crows
Ser Lyle attends the wedding of King Tommen Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell. Stepping out of the sept with the newlyweds, Lyle makes a booming announcement saying that Westeros has two queens now and that the young one is as beautiful as the old one. Cersei Lannister feels like slapping Lyle, who often reminds the queen of her late and unlamented husband, Robert Baratheon. Lyle remains in King's Landing after the wedding. Ser Jaime Lannister spots him training at quintain and cracking its shield in the yard of the Red Keep.
Lyle is a part of the force led by Jaime to aid in the capture of Riverrun. During the party's stop at Hayford, Lyle is among those invited to the supper within the castle. At Harrenhal Lyle tells Pia that she will now be protected. At Darry he is once again invited to supper within the castle where he offers his opinions about smallfolk who lie to their lords. He pledges to Mariya Darry and Amerei Frey he will return to Darry once the siege at Riverrun is over to kill Sandor Clegane.
|“||No one will hurt you now.||”|
|“||Lyle: Lady Mariya, Lady Amerei, your distress has moved me. You have my word, once Riverrun has fallen I shall return to hunt down the Hound and kill him for you. Dogs do not frighten me.
|“||The Blackfish deserves a nobler death, and I'm the man to give it to him. I will challenge him to single combat. Mace or axe or longsword, makes no matter. The old man will be my meat.||”|
|“||We rode across half the bloody realm and for what? So you could make Edmure Tully piss his breeches? There's no song in that. I need a fight. I want the Hound, Jaime. Him, or the marcher lord.||”|
