Nute is among Victarion's crew that boards the Serry ship during the taking of the Shields. Afterward, Nute is raised to the lordship of Oakenshield by Victarion's brother Euron, the new King of the Isles and the North. Victarion suspects this was done to "steal" Nute from him. He tells Nute to refuse, but Nute, pointing out that Victarion cannot offer him the same, accepts the lordship from Euron.[1]
