The Darkest Days
Following Random's coronation, Benedict opted to remain in the field with a select set of troops to patrol the borderlands established between Amber and Chaos following the Patternfall War.
Following the Fall of Amber, Benedict escaped into Arden with a portion of Amber's troops, but not before being badly mauled by the wererat invaders. He has since disappeared from his military camp and is suspected of becoming a lycanthrope (weregorilla) himself.
Following the rebuke of darkness and the installation of King Bleys, Benedict returned to Amber healed of his lycanthropy. He recognizes Bleys as King, but has chosen to distance himself from the city and from service to the King.
