A Clash of Kings
A Storm of Swords
Walton commands Ser Jaime Lannister's escort from Harrenhal to King's Landing. Jaime persuades him with the promise of gold to turn back to Harrenhal so Jaime can save Brienne of Tarth from Vargo Hoat.
Upon their arrival at King's Landing, Walton and his men are rewarded the gold they were promised. They are also given a girl (Jeyne Poole) to serve as a fake Arya Stark to marry Ramsay Bolton and cement House Bolton's claim to Winterfell. Their escort then departs to bring the girl to Lord Roose.
A Dance with Dragons
Steelshanks, he is called. A soldier of iron loyalty.
Steelshanks Walton commanded Jaime's escort; blunt, brusque, brutal, at heart a simple soldier. Jaime had served with his sort all his life. Men like Walton would kill at their lord's command, rape when their blood was up after battle, and plunder wherever they could, but once the war was done they would go back to their homes, trade their spears for hoes, wed their neighbors' daughters, and raise a pack of squalling children. Such men obeyed without question, but the deep malignant cruelty of the Brave Companions was not a part of their nature.
