Ser Robar attends the Tourney of the Hand in King's Landing with his father, Lord Yohn and his elder brother, Ser Andar. The Royces wear steel armor with bronze runes. He defeats Lothor Brune and is defeated in turn by Ser Loras Tyrell.[2]

After Eddard Stark decides to sent a party to bring Gregor Clegane to justice for raiding the Riverlands, he sends Ser Robar to inform the king (and his father) of this.[3]

A Clash of Kings

As a second son Robar has to make his own name. So he decides to support Renly's claim to the throne. Renly appoints him to his Rainbow Guard as Robar the Red. On the eve of the battle between the brothers Renly and Stannis I he escorts Catelyn Tully from Renly's camp to the sept and back.[4]

Seconds after the murder of Renly, Ser Robar and Emmon Cuy burst into the tent and find Relyn's death body in the arms of Brienne of Tarth. They both think that Brienne has killed Renly and Ser Emmon and others attacks her. Catelyn Tully 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.[5] Catelyn and Brienne depart.

A Storm of Swords

Loras Tyrell later recalls that he killed Robar and Emmon in his rage.[6][7]


Robar is "comely in a rough-hewn way". He is a good tourney warrior and a very good swordsman.[8][9]

Catelyn thinks that Ser Robar and the company he keeps are young and foolish because they see war as a game.[10]
