A Clash of Kings Edit

After Tyrion Lannister became the new hand of the king, he named Ser Jacelyn the Lord Commander of the City Watch in King's Landing after he dismissed Janos Slynt to The Wall.

During the Battle of the Blackwater Lord Jacelyn is one of the commanders of the forces sworn to King Joffrey I. Although the plan created by Tyrion succeeds in destroying part of Stannis Baratheon's forces, the better part of Stannis's army is able to cross the Blackwater Rush to assault the gates. When the City Watch sees Joffrey retreating to the Red Keep they break.

Jacelyn tries to rally them and seems to succeed, but he is killed by broken men when an arrow from an unknown quarter finds his throat.
