Appearance and Character
He is the son of Hullen, the Master of Horse at Winterfell. Harwin remembers Lyanna Stark's skills at horse-riding, suggesting he has been a stable-boy and guard of Winterfell for quite some time.
A Game of Thrones
Harwin is among the guardsmen who accompany Lord Eddard when he travels south to assume the office of Hand of the King to Robert I. Like the rest of the Stark household, Harwin does nothing to prevent Sandor Clegane from killing the butcher son Mycah. Arya Stark, remembering how Harwin always speaks so boldly, resents him over his inaction.
A Clash of Kings
A Storm of Swords
Harwin is encountered by Arya Stark in the Riverlands, having joined the Brotherhood Without Banners. There he tells her what came of the men that Lord Eddard sent into the Riverlands with Lord Beric Dondarrion. He reveals there are only six of the twenty guardsmen from Winterfell remaining, but they are scattered.
When Arya attempts to escape from the Brotherhood from horseback, Harwin is the one who catches her. He tells Arya that her skills in horse-riding remind him of her deceased aunt, Lady Lyanna.
A Feast for Crows
Harwin is listed as being part of Lady Stoneheart's band of outlaws.
