Recent Events

A Game of Thrones

Before Catelyn Tully leaves King's Landing, her husband, Lord Eddard Stark, orders her to sent words to Helman and Galbart Glover once she comes back to the North. He commands them to raise a hundred bowmen each and fortify Moat Cailin.[3] However, those orders are never sent.

When Robb Stark calls the northern banners in response to Lord Eddard's arrest, Helman leads the Tallhart men to join the army at Winterfell, leaving his brother Leobald in command at Torrhen's Square. He is part of the host that marches south to Moat Cailin.[4] Robb Stark names him as the commander of the garrison of 400 archers and swordsmen left at the Twins to ensure the loyalty of House Frey.[5]

A Clash of Kings

Ser Edmure Tully orders Helman to quit the Twins and join up with Lord Roose Bolton to seize Harrenhal.[6] Helman retakes Castle Darry after a small siege with the Lannister garrison surrendering after a short period. Roose orders him to torch the castle, kill the captives and join forces with Robett Glover on his march to Duskendale.[7]

A Storm of Swords

Helman is part of the northern infantry force that marches on Duskendale on the orders of Lord Bolton. At the Battle of Duskendale they are defeated by Lord Randyll Tarly, who had been anticipating them. Helman himself is killed in combat along with most of the force.[8] Having been predeceased by his son, Benfred, and his brother, Leobald, Helman is succeeded by his daughter Eddara in the mastery of Torrhen's Square.[2]
