A Storm of Swords

When news reaches Riverrun of Robett Glover's capture at Duskendale, Galbart fears for his brother's life.[11] It is partly that fear that causes King Robb Stark to trade Martyn Lannister for Robett.[12]

On the way to the Twins, Galbart is named commander of Robb's scouts and outriders in place of Ser Brynden Tully who remains at Riverrun. After receiving news of the death of King Balon Greyjoy, Robb advances his plan to retake Moat Cailin while Lord Captain Victarion Greyjoy is away. Galbart is ordered by Robb to go with Lord Jason Mallister and Lady Maege Mormont to Seagard and sail up the Neck to find Greywater Watch so that the crannogmen can direct Robb's army around the rear of the ancient fortress.[12] Robb is killed in the Red Wedding, however.[13] Though Jason later remains at Seagard,[2] Galbart's and Maege's whereabouts are currently unknown.
