In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, House Royce of Runestone is distantly related to House Stark. He is the third and youngest son of "Bronze" Yohn Royce, and therefore having little chance of inheriting lands or wealth, he joined the Night's Watch. Waymar was fast-tracked to being an officer because of his noble blood. Eighteen-year-old Waymar is a skilled warrior, trained by his castle's master-at-arms, but is untested in battle. He is arrogant and has a tendency to underrate the experience of other men due to their lower birth, even though they have been serving on the Wall for longer than he has, but he is not completely stupid.

Nonetheless, when the Others - as the White Walkers are known in the novels - appear he bravely attempts to fight one in single combat. However, his sword shatters as soon as it touches the ice-sword of the Other, and he is defeated and killed. When Will surveys the damage and retrieves Royce's shattered sword Royce revives as a wight, his eyes now icy blue, and murders Will.

At a later point in the novels, Sansa Stark recalls that Waymar stopped at Winterfell on his way to the Wall, along with his father. The young Sansa (who was less than 11 years old at the time) developed a massive romantic crush on the handsome young man in the brief time before he departed.
