Appearance and Character
A Game of Thrones
After the death of Lord Jon Arryn, the mountain clans of the Vale grew bolder. Ser Donnel desires to lead a hundred men to root out the mountain clans, but Lady Lysa Arryn forbids it, wanting to keep the swords of the Vale close to home.
Ser Donnel leads the sortie from the Bloody Gate that saves Lady Catelyn Stark's party from the mountain clans in the Mountains of the Moon. After escorting her party to the Bloody Gate, Ser Donnel allows the wounded to recuperate within the battlements. He also sent ravens to the Eyrie and Gates of the Moon, informing Lady Arryn of her sister's arrival.
