Desmond is a member of the guards of Winterfell.
A Game of Thrones
He was accompanying the Stark party when they come across the direwolves in the snow. He was one of the guards that goes south with Lord Eddard. He tells Arya not to worry about her father, since every northman is worth ten southron swords. He was killed when Lord Eddard was arrested; Arya finds his body and kicks it, calling him a liar.
