Eddard Stark: "Who are your best two swords?"
Jory Cassel: "Heward and Wyl."

— Eddard Stark and Jory Cassel[src]

Wyl was a guardsman sworn to House Stark.


Season 1

Wyl travels south with Lord Eddard Stark when the latter is appointed Hand of the King.

Wyl and another Stark guard named Heward accompany Eddard to one of Littlefinger's brothels. Both are speared by Lannister guardsmen, at the orders of Ser Jaime Lannister, in retaliation for Tyrion Lannister's arrest by Catelyn Stark.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Wyl is a young guardsman sworn to House Stark.

Wyl is killed differently than in the show: the Lannister guardmen pull him off his horse and use their swords to kill him.
