Recent Events

A Game of Thrones

Farlen and Maester Luwin teach Bran Stark how to tell the differences between direwolves and regular wolves.[2]

A Clash of Kings

Farlen is injured when Theon Greyjoy captures Winterfell.[3] Theon forces Farlen to accompany his search party when Bran and Rickon Stark disappear, by holding his daughter Palla hostage.[4]

After Theon displayed the heads of the boys above the gate, Farlen attacks him until he's beaten senseless by Urzen and Cadwyl.[5]

After three of Theon's men who had been part of the search party die mysteriously - Gelmarr, Aggar and Gynir -, Farlen is blamed by Theon and put to death. As he is about to be executed, Farlen points out to Theon that Lord Eddard Stark did his own killings, forcing Theon to do the deed himself.[5]

While Farlen is blamed for the deaths, the truth is that the men were murdered by Reek (with Theon's knowledge), as all three knew the truth about the two bodies Theon brought back to Winterfell and claimed were Bran and Rickon. Theon then used Farlen as a scapegoat for the murders.[5]
