Eddard Stark and Jory Cassel[src]

Heward was a guardsman sworn to House Stark.


Season 1

Heward travels south with Lord Eddard Stark when the latter is appointed Hand of the King. He accompanies Lord Stark to one of Petyr Baelish's brothels and is killed along with another Stark guard named Wyl by Lannister guardsmen on the orders of Ser Jaime Lannister in retaliation for Tyrion Lannister's arrest by Catelyn Stark.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Heward is also a guardsman sworn to House Stark. Eddard observes him playing at forfeits with a buxom wench shortly before he is killed in the same manner as in the show.
