- ―Donnel Hill after seeing Mag Mar Tun Doh Weg
During the Battle of Castle Black, Hill takes part in defending the Wall against Mance Rayder's forces. When Castle Black's inner gate is threatened by the giant Mag Mar Tun Doh Weg, he accompanies Grenn, Cooper, and other three black brothers to defend it. Although he initially wavers and considers fleeing upon seeing the Giant, he is convinced by Grenn to stay and fulfill his oath to the Night's Watch. They successfully kill the giant, but all of the black brothers are slain in the process. Their bodies are discovered by Jon Snow and Samwell Tarly after the battle.

In the booksEdit
While the ranging force camps at the Fist of the First Men, Donnel is among the brothers who plot to murder Jeor Mormont, Sam and other prominent brothers to end the Great Ranging and desert. The sudden snowfall and the attack of the Others foils the plan. However, during the Mutiny at Craster's Keep Donnel sides with those who are loyal to Mormont. He and the other Loyalists make it to Castle Black long before Jon and Sam. He survives the Battle of Castle Black.
Donnel is one of the four brothers who, at Jon's command, shoot arrows at Mance Rayder (actually, it is Lord of Bones in disguise) while he is executed by burning, in order to grant him a quick and painless death.
