Pypar joins the Night's Watch at the same time as Jon Snow. During sword practice, Jon thinks Pyp uses his sword like a dagger. He befriends Jon and helps defend Samwell Tarly when he arrives at the Wall.
Pyp is named to the rangers when Ser Alliser Thorne believes him ready to man the Wall, and he informs Jon that King Robert I Baratheon has died. Pyp is among the group of friends who stop Jon from abandoning the Night's Watch and forswearing himself.

Pyp is one of the many fighters atop the Wall when Mance Rayder's army assaults the Watch in the Battle of Castle Black. He retches when he sees the bodies of Donal Noye and Mag Mar Tun Doh Weg. Pyp refers to arrows shot by wildlings as "breakfast arrows", and he names straw scarecrows after members of the Night's Watch. Jon tasks Pyp with commanding the Wall when he descends to Castle Black at one point during the siege.

Quotes about Pypar
|“||The mummer's boy with the big ears was a born liar with a hundred different voices, and he did not tell his tales so much as live them, playing all the parts as needed, a king one moment and a swineherd the next.||”|
|“||They will call you men of Night's Watch now, but you are bigger fools than the Mummer's Monkey here if you believe that. You are boys still, green and stinking of summer, and when the winter comes you will die like flies.||”|
|“||Making mock of another man's prayer is fool's work, Pyp. And dangerous.||”|
