A Game of Thrones
Ser Vardis greets Lady Catelyn Stark upon her arrival at the Eyrie. He is present when Tyrion Lannister demands a trial by combat to demonstrate his innocence in the death of Lord Jon Arryn. Vardis is chosen as the champion for House Arryn by Lady Lysa Arryn. He comes to the trial dressed in his mail. It makes him slow and clumsy, however, and Bronn, Tyrion's champion, kills Vardis easily.
