A Game of Thrones
A Clash of Kings
King Robb Stark and Tyrion Lannister negotiate Tion's release. Robb offers Tion and his cousin Willem Lannister in exchange for Arya and Sansa Stark. Tyrion declines that offer, but offers Lord Medger Cerwyn and Ser Donnel Locke for Tion and Harrion Karstark and Ser Wylis Manderly for Willem.
A Storm of Swords
In the same battle in which Tion was captured, Ser Jaime Lannister had slain two sons of Lord Rickard Karstark, who served as bodyguards for Robb Stark. Rickard swore he would avenge them. When Jaime is freed by Catelyn Tully, Rickard feels robbed of his vengeance and chooses Tion Frey and Willem Lannister as targets. With ten men the Karstarks surprise and kill the cousins and their guards. Their killers are condemned to death and executed by Robb Stark, who was outraged by the murders.
