Appearance and Character Edit
Yoren is stooped. He has a twisted shoulder, the remnants of an injury that left him unable to fight. His coarse, ugly features are hidden by a matted black beard. He is lice ridden and smells foul. His clothes are old and have faded to grey.
He is loyal and trustworthy, if unrefined. He believes in the rules and the order of the Night's Watch, lamenting the fact that it isn't treated with the same honour that it used to be.
Yoren suffered a shoulder injury that meant fighting was difficult. He has since spent most of his life wandering the Seven Kingdoms as a recruiter. He frequently visits Winterfell, meaning that he knows various members of House Stark.
A Game of Thrones Edit
Yoren joins up with the company consisting of Benjen Stark, Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister. He brings two rapers from the Three Sisters that have chosen the Wall over castration. He skins a squirrel for a stew.
