Along with Bronn, Chiggen answers Lady Catelyn Stark's call at the crossroads inn when she finds Tyrion Lannister and takes him into custody. He is part of her escort during her flight to the Eyrie, through the Mountains of the Moon in the Vale of Arryn. In order to feed the group, he kills Tyrion's mount, which saddens the dwarf for the animal had been given to him by his brother Jaime for his twenty-third name day. In the second attack by the Vale mountain clans, Chiggen receives an arrow in the belly. To end his cries of pain, which call the clansmen and wolves down on them, Bronn slits his throat, and later tells Catelyn he died of his wounds. Tyrion takes his chainmail hauberk.
