A knight of Aerys II Targaryen's Kingsguard.

Late in the reign of Aerys II, Ser Arthur led the expedition that dispersed the Kingswood Brotherhood and killed the outlaw known as the Smiling Knight in single combat. (ASOS 12, ASOS 68) Ser Arthur, Ser Oswell Whent, and Ser Gerold Hightower were ordered by Prince Rhaegar Targaryen to guard Lyanna Stark at the Tower of Joy when Robert's Rebellion broke out. They were still there after Aerys II was killed and Eddard Stark came to take her back. They refused to yield, and Eddard and his companions were forced to kill all three. Eddard personally slew Arthur. (AGOT 7, AGOT 40)
