History

Lord Yohn is a tourney knight, who took part in the tourney at Harrenhal, where he was defeated by Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, and in the tourney at Lannisport, where he was defeated by Ser Jorah Mormont.[4][5] He defeated Thoros of Myr in the melee at the tourney on Prince Joffrey's name day with a common mace after the fire of Thoros's sword had guttered out.[6]

Lord Tywin Lannister offered his son Tyrion for marriage within House Royce but was rejected.[7]

Lord Royce escorted his youngest son north, when Ser Waymar joined the Night's Watch in 296 AC. They stayed in Winterfell on their way, where Yohn participated in hunts and practice sparring with Lord Eddard Stark and Ser Rodrik Cassel, defeating them both in the latter.[1][3]

Yohn attends court in King's Landing with a retinue of knights and sworn swords.[9] He takes part in the Hand's tourney in King's Landing, participating with his sons Andar and Robar.[1] Yohn stays in King's Landing, participating in the boar hunt that kills King Robert I Baratheon.[10]

As Robert lies dying, Bronze Yohn is named by Lord Petyr Baelish as a possible ally for Lord Eddard Stark against Queen Cersei Lannister in the matter of the succession, though ultimately Ned chooses to rely on the gold cloaks.[9] During Joffrey I Baratheon's first court session after Ned's imprisonment, Lord Royce is listed by Grand Maester Pycelle among those required to swear fealty to the new king.[11]

After the death of Lysa, Lord Yohn brings five other lords of the Vale to Runestone where they sign a document forming the Lords Declarant. Yohn's cousin, Lord Nestor Royce, informs Petyr Baelish about Yohn's intent to question Marillion about the murder of Lysa and to remove Petyr from his position as Lord Protector of the Vale.[14]

The Lords Declarant later ascend the Eyrie to meet with Lord Baelish. Yohn possibly recognizes Sansa Stark, but Nestor explains she is Petyr's natural daughter, Alayne Stone. Yohn declares his intent to foster the young Lord Robert Arryn at Runestone as his ward and squire and to raise him to be a knight that Lord Jon Arryn would be proud of, with the group's backing. He prevents Ser Lyn Corbray from attacking Ser Lothor Brune, but later departs the Eyrie in anger when the other Lords Declarant allow Lord Baelish a year more as Lord Protector. Petyr tells Sansa he believes Lord Yohn will be the only member of the Lords Declarant who will continue to be a threat to his plans.[3]
