Recent Events

A Storm of Swords

When the wildlings attack Mole's Town and Castle Black, Hareth is one of the Moles who flee to the Wall. There he helps defend Castle Black from the wildlings. He declares his interest in joining the Night's Watch.[1] He is trained by Jon Snow due to the loss of Ser Endrew Tarth as master-at-arms at Castle Black.[2]

A Dance with Dragons

Horse is trained by Iron Emmett after his appointment as master-at-arms at Castle Black. Jon spies him training in the yard against Hop-Robin, whom he easily defeats. Jon compliments his skill, but advises him that he lowers his shield too far when pressing the attack. Horse thanks the Lord Commander for his advice as he helps Hop-Robin back to his feet.[3]

Horse is one of the men brought along as muscle to assist Lord Commander Jon Snow in enforcing Janos Slynt's orders to garrison Greyguard.[4]

He later travels to the weirwood grove just north of the Wall in the haunted forest in order to say his vows. He is accompanied by five other recruits (Leathers, Jax, Satin, Arron, and Emrick). They were escorted by Lord Commander Jon Snow, along with ten rangers. Jon, Iron Emmett, and Bowen Marsh weighed each recruit and assigned them to an order. Horse was assigned to the builders.[5]
