During the feast that Aerys II Targaryen threw when Cersei Lannister first came to court, Lord Rykker made a joke about Lord Tywin Lannister and his ability to produce gold. Tywin stared at Lord Rykker until Lord Rykker gave up and walked away.
During Robert's Rebellion, Ser Jaremy Rykker fought for Aerys, surrendering to House Lannister forces during the Sack of King's Landing. He was given the choice of death or the Wall and chose the Night's Watch.
