A Storm of SwordsEdit

Urswyck is the leader of the foraging party that takes Brienne of Tarth and Ser Jaime Lannister prisoner. He remains faithful to Vargo, even after Jaime offers him a royal pardon, a knighthood and a hefty ransom fee. Instead he has Jaime beaten for mocking the Brave Companions and orders that the two prisoners be taken before Vargo Hoat, and that he will decide what is to become of them. It is Urswyck that tells Jaime that the Brave Companions now serve Lord Roose Bolton and not Jaime's father, Tywin Lannister.

Urswyck orders Rorge not to break Brienne, as Jaime told him that she would be worth her weight in sapphires. Urswyck does, however, hold Jaime down when Zollo cuts off his swordhand, and puts it on a cord around his neck.

Urswyck urges vargo to abandon Harrenhal after he starts to go mad, but Vargo refuses and so Urswyck the Faithful abandons him instead, leading group of Companions south to Oldtown, from where he intends to find a ship away to Essos.
