A Dance with Dragons
Ronald is made a captive when Griffin's Roost is taken by Jon Connington and the Golden Company, along with Ronnet Connington's younger siblings, Raymund and Alynne. Jon feels that the three will make useful hostages should Ronnet attempt to retake the castle. When Jon orders that Ronald and the other young Conningtons be confined under guard, Ronald tries to bite the spearman closest to him. That night, Jon has him and the other young Conningtons as guests at the victory feast, in hopes of getting to know his relatives. However, when Ronald tells Jon that his father will kill him, Jon sends the children back to their cells.
