Recent Events

A Storm of Swords

The Mad Huntsman becomes a leader of Stoney Sept after the death of Ser Wilbert at the hands of the Lannisters. A member of the brotherhood without banners,[3] he somewhat alleviates the famine around Stoney Sept by bringing in a flock of sheep.

He puts northern prisoners he captured to waste away in crow cages.[2]

After word spreads that Jaime Lannister has escaped Riverrun, the Mad Huntsman sets out to track him.[2] He catches Sandor Clegane, but the brotherhood claim him before the Mad Huntsman can put him in the crow cages. After a tense confrontation, the Mad Huntsman agrees to take Sandor before the Lightning Lord. Sandor is brought before Beric Dondarrion, where he defeats the Lightning Lord in a trial by battle. However, Sandor's gold is confiscated and the Mad Huntsman is sent to buy grain south of the Mander with the gold, accompanied by Greenbeard.[4]
