Character and Appearance
John has brown skin and wears brown clothes. He decorates his ears with golden coins. He has scars and weathered face. John is a brusque, brutal man who wields sword and dagger. He is not well spoken. He is skilled with dice.
Although he is not a young man, John is known as Young John because his father, Old John Mudd, was also a member of the Golden Company. His surname Mudd is of a house that had once loomed large in the histories of the Seven Kingdoms. He may or may not be of House Mudd, as in the free companies a man can call himself whatever he chooses. He may be related to another serjeant in the company, Lorimas Mudd.
A Dance with Dragons
John may have been present during Jon Connington's rendezvous with the Golden Company three miles south of Volon Therys, as Jon notices that a Mudd is present during the meeting. Like the rest of the company, he swears his allegiance to Aegon Targaryen before they invade Westeros.

Young John Mudd and Chain hold Mistwood for the Golden Company. They keep Lady Mary Mertyns under house arrest and host Arianne Martell's party for a night. Although he tells Arianne Martell that he is a knight, she thinks to herself that he behaves like no knight that she has ever met.
We serve your rightful king, old crone.—Young John Mudd, to Lady Mary Mertyns
