He is among the knights who remain with Stannis at Castle Black.

A Dance with Dragons

While in the practice yard, Godry confronts Lord Commander Jon Snow and attempts to goad him into a fight, but Jon ignores him.[2] He is among the Queen's Men in the Common Room who witness Jon confront Janos Slynt; he laughs when Slynt refuses to obey Jon's orders.[3] During the execution of "Mance Rayder", Godry rides the horse Mance is tied to, and drags him to the cage where he is burned by Melisandre.[4]

He is among those who marches with Stannis on Deepwood Motte then Winterfell. He leads the prayers to R'hllor at the nightfires and constantly urges Stannis to make an offering (burn someone) to R'hllor in order to stop the blizzard slowing the march of the army. He got his wish when four men were caught in the act of cannibalism and all four men were staked and burned.

He leads the vanguard of Stannis Baratheons army.

Godry is thought by both Jon Snow and Asha Greyjoy as arrogant and vain, hungry for glory, deaf to caution and a glutton for praise. He looks down on smallfolk, Northmen and women.

The Winds of Winter

Ser Godry along with Clayton Suggs and Richard Horpe brought in Maester Tybald for questioning by Stannis.[5]
