Background History:

Bard was born in Winterfell during the reign of the Mad king. His father was a decorated soldier in the Northern armies, while his mother was a serving maid to Eddard Stark's sister Lyanna. His house's line spreads back to the First men themselves, the family Bloodstone is a strong and noble house. A great ally.
At the age of ten he became his father's squire after a battle with some bandits earned his father a title. Over time Bard became a prominent soldier and swordsman under his father's tutelage. He became the shining glory of the family Bloodstone.
Over the course of time his younger sister Faye at 14 became betrothed to a noble knight in the south to one of the Freys, a house whom had had rivalries with the Bloodstones up until the marriage.
But a few months after the marriage, civil war erupted between the Baratheons, Starks and Tullys against the forces of the Mad Targaryen king and his son Rhaegar. Bard was 19 at the time and a full knight. He served with his father in the forces commanded by the Lord Stark himself. They cut a bloody swathe through the enemy forces, both Targaryen and Greyjoy, when they revolted. At the battle of the Trident Bard proved himself a great warrior and a noble opponent, he captured many nobles to acquire much coin. Sadly his father and mother had died at the hands of enemy forces.
When the Trident battle was over, he and Eddard's vanguard went to King's Landing to capture the city, but found the Lannisters already holding the city and the King dead, with Jaime Lannister on the Iron throne, dubbed Kingslayer for his murder of the mad king. Lord Stark made him give it up for his friend and leader of the rebellion Robert Baratheon, a great warrior, who became the new king.
Over time the kingdom became engulfed in a second, bloodier war. The war of the five kings. Lord Eddard had been murdered by the Lannisters and called a traitor, a lie to Bard. Now his son Robb had become the new king in the north and by the old gods, Bard would kill anyone who as so much threatened the new kingdom.
Though the young knight mistrusts his lord's allies, particularly the Freys and Boltons, as he feel they are not honorable men and merely cravens. Time will tell if his misgivings are correct.
