A Storm of Swords
Hobb is among those left behind by Bowen Marsh when the First Steward sets off after wildling raiders. During the battle beneath the Wall, Hobb keeps the defenders fed. Hobb is among the candidates at the choosing of the new Lord Commander of the Night's Watch.
A Dance with Dragons
Hobb gathers with two score other black brothers near the gate of Castle Black after word spreads that the heads of three rangers have been found impaled on spikes on the other side of the Wall. Lord Commander Jon Snow verifies that Jack Bulwer, Hairy Hal, and Garth Greyfeather have been slain by the Weeper. A friend of Garth's, Alf of Runnymudd, breaks down at the news, and Hobb is ordered by Jon to get Alf to bed and give him mulled wine.
