Benjamin and his team of Frans Broekman, Tom Mendham, Gerard Hook and Jacob Huismans caught three Gobblers in Clerkenwell where they found out the Gobblers were taking the children they stole to Lapland in the North. They also found out about Carlo Boreal and the Ministry of Theology.
Benjamin and Gerard entered the Ministry at White Hall whilst Jacob stood watch outside and Frans and Tom went to spy on Boreal. Benjamin's dæmon soon came flying out to ask for help from Jacob. They had been caught in the Ministry and Gerard had been captured. Benjamin fell from a high staircase with his dæmon flapping and pulling to keep him up. Benjamin died when he hit the floor. The death of Benjamin de Ruyter was Lyra Belacqua's first prediction with the help of an alethiometer.
