A Dance with Dragons
Patrek stays with Queen Selyse at Eastwatch-by-the-Sea when Stannis Baratheon goes to take Deepwood Motte. When Selyse leaves Eastwatch to go to the Nightfort, Patrek accompanies her to Castle Black. He commands the fifty knights and men-at-arms left behind to guard Queen Selyse and Princess Shireen Baratheon. He thinks he would have made a better husband for Alys Karstark than Sigorn and he is smitten by Val. When Selyse suggests that Patrek should marry Val, Jon Snow states that wildling women must be stolen, showing the man's strength, to which Patrek replies, "No man has ever had cause to question my courage. No woman ever will." He is later slain at Hardin's Tower, where Val is staying, killed by the giant, Wun Weg Wun Dar Wun.
