A Game of Thrones
Ser Robar attends the Hand's tourney in King's Landing with his father, Lord Yohn Royce, and his elder brother, Ser Andar. The Royces wear steel armor with bronze runes. Robar defeats Lothor Brune and is defeated in turn by Ser Loras Tyrell.
A Clash of Kings
As a second son Robar has to make his own name, so he decides to support Renly Baratheon's claim to the Iron Throne. Renly appoints him to his Rainbow Guard as Robar the Red. When Catelyn Stark attends the feast near Bitterbridge, Lord Bryce the Orange goads him into juggling daggers. On the eve of the battle between the brothers Renly and Stannis Baratheon, Robar escorts Catelyn from Renly's camp to the sept and back.
Seconds after the murder of Renly, Robar the Red and Emmon the Yellow burst into the tent and find Renly's dead body in the arms of Brienne the Blue. They both think that Brienne has killed Renly, and Ser Emmon and others attack her. Catelyn, who has seen the murder, is able to convince Ser Robar that Brienne is innocent. Robar tells Catelyn to take Brienne away and holds the attackers at bay. Catelyn and Brienne depart. Ser Loras Tyrell later kills Ser Robar and Ser Emmon Cuy in a red rage for their "failure" to protect the king.
