On his final ranging, Gared, travelling beyond the Wall with Ser Waymar Royce and Will, chased a group of wildlings for nine days before catching up to them. At the wildling campsite, Ser Waymar and Will were killed and Gared fled. He was later found south of the Wall, his mind broken. He was executed by Lord Eddard Stark for being a deserter from the Night's Watch.
