Recent Events

A Storm of Swords

Iron Emmett comes to Castle Black from Eastwatch-by-the-Sea and takes part in the election of the new Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. While at Castle Black, he trains with Jon Snow and is able to best his future Lord Commander in several training sessions.[1]

A Feast for Crows

Emmett is the new master-at-arms at Castle Black.[2]

A Dance with Dragons

Lord Commander Jon Snow oversees Iron Emmett's training sessions with the new recruits Horse and Hop-Robin, noting that although Cotter Pyke was upset at losing Eastwatch's best swordsman, Emmet is a natural teacher who knows how to train men how to fight and loves doing it.[3]

Emmet is one of the men brought along as muscle to assist Lord Commander Jon Snow in escorting Janos Slynt out of Castle Black to carry out his duties as garrison commander of Greyguard. When Slynt refuses to obey and attempts to escape when Jon orders for his hanging, Emmet chokes Slynt into submission. He later kicks Slynt to his knees and places his head on the chopping block when Lord Commander Snow orders Slynt be executed instead.[4]

Lord Commander Snow eventually names Emmett commander of Long Barrow, where Jon sends the wildling spearwives.[5] Dolorous Edd mentions to Lord Snow that Emmett has begun bedding Black Maris, one of the spearwives.
