A Dance with Dragons
Jax is one of the sixty-three wildlings that Jon Snow takes to Castle Black from Mole's Town. He and Leathers are the first two wildlings of the sixty-three to join the Night's Watch. They swore their vows with four other recruits (Horse, Satin, Arron, and Emrick) at the grove of weirwoods north of Castle Black, inside the haunted forest. They were escorted by Lord Commander Jon Snow, along with ten rangers. Jon, Iron Emmett, and Bowen Marsh weighed each recruit and assigned them to an order. Jax was assigned to the rangers.
