A Game of Thrones
After Lord Eddard Stark decides to send a party to bring Ser Gregor Clegane to justice for raiding the riverlands, he sends Ser Robar to the kingswood to inform King Robert I Baratheon and Yohn. After Robert dies from being gored by a boar, the Royces are among the nobles who King Joffrey I Baratheon insists must do homage to him or be named traitors.
A Clash of Kings
As a second son Robar has to make his own name, so he decides to support Renly Baratheon's claim to the Iron Throne as the War of the Five Kings begins. Renly appoints him to his Rainbow Guard as Robar the Red and gives him a suit of blood red armor and a rainbow cloak.
On the eve of the battle at Storm's End between the brothers Renly and Stannis Baratheon, Robar escorts Catelyn from Renly's camp to a nearby sept and back. The quiet Robar discusses the upcoming battle with the loud Ser Wendel Manderly.
Seconds after the murder of Renly, Robar and Ser Emmon Cuy burst into the tent with two men-at-arms to find Renly's dead body in the arms of their fellow Rainbow Guard, Brienne Tarth. They both think that Brienne the Blue has killed Renly, and Emmon the Yellow and others attack her. Catelyn, who has seen the murder, is able to convince a frightened Robar that Brienne is innocent. The young knight tells Catelyn to take Brienne away, and he holds the attackers at bay as Catelyn and Brienne depart.

Quotes about Robar
Ser Robar's ancestral runes proved small protection as Ser Loras split his shield and drove him from his saddle to crash with an awful clangor in the dirt. Robar lay moaning as the victor made his circuit of the field.—thoughts of Sansa Stark
They are still unblooded, Catelyn thought as she watched Lord Bryce goad Ser Robar into juggling a brace of daggers. It is all a game to them still, a tourney writ large, and all they see is the chance for glory and honor and spoils. They are boys drunk on song and story, and like all boys, they think themselves immortal.—thoughts of Catelyn Stark
