Appearance and Character
Tom is affable, loyal, tireless, and capable in a limited way.
When Mance Rayder visited Winterfell with Lord Commander Qorgyle, Robb Stark and Jon Snow dropped a mountain of snow on Tomard from a gate. Tom chased the youths around until all three were red faced.
A Game of Thrones
Tomard accompanies Lord Eddard Stark south to King's Landing when he is named Hand of the King. He is named captain of the Stark guards in King's Landing after the death of Jory Cassel and after Alyn's departure with Lord Beric Dondarrion.
When the Wind Witch is to return Sansa and Arya Stark to the north, Ned tasks Tomard with personally delivering a letter to Lord Stannis Baratheon at Dragonstone. Before the ship sets sail, however, Tom is slain by the City Watch of King's Landing in the throne room of the Red Keep when Eddard is arrested.
