He came north with his son, Waymar, when his son joined the Night's Watch. He took part in the Hand's Tourney in King's Landing, attending with his sons.[6] He stayed in King's Landing, participating in a boar hunt with the king, a boar hunt which killed Robert I.[7]

A Storm of Swords

Yohn was mentioned as a suitor of Lysa Tully by Ser Kevan Lannister.[5] According to Lysa herself, he is pressuring her into participating in the War of Five Kings, presumably in defense of Riverrun against the Lannister forces.[8]

A Feast for Crows

After the death of Lady Lysa Arryn, Lord Yohn brought five other lords of the Vale to Runestone where they signed a document forming the Lords Declarant, which demanded that Lord Robert Arryn be surrendered to their care and that various counselors be dismissed from their posts, speaking about Lord Petyr Baelish without mentioning him.[9] Lord Yohn held a small melee at Runestone only for squires. Harrold Hardyng won the melee and Lord Yohn knighted him as his reward.[10]
