Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

He was arrested for being a poacher and given over to Yoren when he cleaned out the dungeons. When Yoren runs out of food, he turns to Koss and Kurz to keep them fed.[2]

Avoiding the Kingsroad, the band moves north along the eastern side of the river running south from the Gods Eye. Koss is the first to spot a dead soldier in the water. That morning, he and Yoren go upriver searching a ford to cross the river while Woth and Gerren search downstream, but they have no luck. When they also can't find any good boats in the abandoned village where Yoren wanted to rent some to cross the Gods Eye, Koss suggests they could patch the bottom of a rotten rowboat they came across. Yoren decides to spend the night at the abandoned holdfast of the village and Koss again takes care of dinner, catching a goose and two chicken.[2]

That night, the village is burned down by men under the command of Ser Amory Lorch. When they begin to attack the holdfast, Yoren orders Koss and Urreg to hold the postern. Later on, Koss kills four men attacking the gate with his bow and arrow. As the fort is overtaken, he tries to yield by dropping his blade but is cut down all the same.[2]
