During the Battle of Castle Black this giant emerges from the Haunted Forest holding a bow with the other members of Mance Rayder's army. He escorts Mag Mar Tun Doh Weg and his mammoth to the outer gate of the Wall. While a wildling bowman fails to reach the black brothers on top of the wall with his arrow, this giant crouches next to him, pulls a massive bow out and shoots a ballista bolt at the wall, breaking havoc on their defenses. His next arrow hits a brother with such force it causes him to fly off the other side of the wall and land in the middle of Castle Black.
At the gate, while Mag turns around the mammoth and several wildlings tie ropes to it, this giant violently exposes the gate's supports and ties the other end of the ropes to them. While the mammoth tries to pull the gate open, men of the Night's Watch throw down flaming barrels of tar, which explode and drive the mammoth off. The giant chases after it, but this brings him within the firing arc of a large ballista mounted atop the Wall. The ballista bolt impales him from behind and he is killed, which enrages Mag and spurs him to lift the gate and confront the men within all by himself.
When Jon leaves Castle Black to kill Mance Rayder, Jon walks past the giant's corpse, which has crows picking at its flesh.

In the booksEdit
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Mance Rayder uses giants for breaching the tunnels at the Wall. However, none of the giants wield bows during the Battle of Castle Black. The most complex weapons that the giants seem capable of wielding are clubs and simple mauls.
