A Game of Thrones
Ser Preston was one of the Kingsguard who accompanied King Robert I on his boar-hunting trip, where Robert was gored. He is later present in the throne room when Ser Barristan Selmy is dismissed, and laughs at his former sworn brother's shame.
A Clash of Kings
Ser Preston beats Sansa Stark when ordered to by King Joffrey. According to Sansa, he treats her as a lackwit child during the beatings. When King Joffrey practices shooting at hares at the Red Keep, one of his bolts almost hits Ser Preston in the groin. He guards the Iron Throne when Tyrion Lannister sends Ser Cleos Frey back to Robb Stark with his terms for peace.
Ser Preston is later a part of the procession to see Princess Myrcella off to Dorne. When the mob goes mad in the streets of King's Landing, Ser Preston tries to cut his way back to aid the High Septon against the mob and is killed by the maddened people. It takes the Gold Cloaks a few days to find his body, as they search for a knight in white armour. However, the rioters have so severely stabbed and hacked at Ser Preston's corpse that he ia "red-brown from head to heel" and barely identifiable.
