Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

Ser Parmen is part of King Renly Baratheon's army encamped beneath Bitterbridge and a member of the Rainbow Guard, Renly's version of the Kingsguard.[3] Parmen stands guard with Ser Emmon Cuy outside Renly's tent when Lady Catelyn Tully comes to see Renly before the battle at Storm's End with his brother, Stannis Baratheon. When Renly is murdered within his tent a short while later, Parmen is not present.[2]

When Ser Loras Tyrell recounts to Ser Jaime Lannister of his blood rage upon hearing of Renly's death, he remembers confronting Parmen alongside Ser Emmon Cuy and Ser Robar Royce. Upon seeing Renly's corpse, Loras kills Emmon and Robar for their failure to protect Renly as his sworn guards. Only Ser Parmen survives the encounter, despite being on duty as Renly's guard alongside Emmon.[4]

After Renly's death, Parmen defects to Stannis Baratheon. Parmen and Ser Erren Florent are sent to retrieve Renly's foot soldiers encamped at Bitterbridge.[5]
