When Aramina was called away from Benden Hold to treat an injured beast belonging to Holder Gardilfon, Hedelman and Brindel were the guards who accompanied her to ensure she would be safe. In reality, there was no injured beast; it was a trap set by Lady Holdless Thella to capture Aramina, and the two guards were killed by her and Dushik.
According to Aramina, Thella killed Hedelman by slitting his throat. Hedelman and Brindel's bodies were hidden out of sight, and later found by the search teams from Benden Hold and Benden Weyr.
