Willis Wode is a recurring character in the first season. He is played by guest star Ryan McKenna and debuts in "Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things." Ser Willis Wode is a knight in the service of House Whent. He helps Catelyn Stark to apprehend Tyrion Lannister and dies defending her during her passage through the Vale of Arryn.
Ser Willis Wode is sworn to the service of House Whent of Harrenhal, a vassal house to House Tully. He is travelling the Kingsroad following the Tourney of the Hand. He carries a shield emblazoned with the black bat of Harrenhal.
Willis is drinking with another man at the Inn at the Crossroads when Tyrion Lannister arrives on his way south. Catelyn Stark is also in the inn and Tyrion recognizes her. She turns to the men of her father's bannermen to help her to take Tyrion into custody, accusing him of attempting to murder her son, Bran Stark. Catelyn announces that she will return Tyrion to Winterfell to await the King's justice. Ser Willis draws his sword and threatens Tyrion.
He accompanies Catelyn east into the Vale of Arryn, her actual destination. Among the party are the captive Tyrion, the two Lannister men-at-arms who were travelling with Tyrion, Catelyn and her escort Ser Rodrik Cassel, the sellsword Bronn, the singer Marillion, a man of House Bracken and six other swordsmen loyal to House Tully. The party are attacked by warriors from the hill tribes. Ser Willis dies defending Catelyn. Catelyn, Tyrion, Rodrik, Bronn, Marillion, and two others survive the attack and continue to the Eyrie.
