Lord Yohn Royce
Lord of Runestone
Lord Yohn Royce, better known as Bronze Yohn, is the Lord of Runestone and head of House Royce. He is sworn to House Arryn. He has three sons, Andar, Robar and Waymar, all knights.
His face is lined and he has grey hair, grey eyes and very bushy eyebrows. However, he still looks immensely strong as he is tall and has large, gnarled hands. He has a set of bronze armor, thousands of years old that is inscribed with runes that ward him from harm.
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. He defeated Thoros of Myr in the melee at the Tourney for Prince Joffrey’s 12th Name Day with a common mace after the fire of Thoros’ sword had guttered out.
Lord Tywin Lannister offered his son Tyrion for marriage within House Royce but was rejected.
Lord Royce escorted his youngest son north when Waymar joined the Night’s Watch in 296AL. They stayed in Winterfell on their way.
