Eddard Ned Stark

Eddard Ned Stark

A stoic, duty-bound and honorable lord, Ned Stark embodies the values of the northern realm over which he rules. Seventeen years ago, he left his home to rise up against the Mad King Aerys Targaryen, fighting alongside his longtime friend Robert Baratheon, who took control of the throne after the war. As Warden of the North, Ned returned to Winterfell with his bastard son, Jon Snow, who despite joining the household, has never been accepted by Ned's wife, Catelyn Stark.

Catelyn Stark

Catelyn Stark

Catelyn married Ned Stark after King Aerys executed Ned's brother, Brandon, to whom Catelyn was betrothed. Though she barely knew Ned at the time of their wedding, their love has grown strong over the years, and as the Lady of Winterfell, Catelyn has raised his five legitimate children. Her husband's bastard, Jon Snow, however, is an embarrassment she has refused to accept.

Lysa Arryn

Lysa Arryn

Catelyn Stark's younger sister, she too was raised with Petyr Baelish (aka Littlefinger). She was married off to the much older Jon Arryn (the former Hand of the King) when Robert Baratheon led his rebellion against the Mad King.

Robin Arryn

Robin Arryn

Lysa and Jon Arryn's son, Robin lives an extremely sheltered life under the watchful eyes of his mother.

Walder Frey

Walder Frey

Bannermen

Lord Walder Frey is patriarch to a brood of more than a hundred descendants, a result of his many marriages. (On his 90th birthday, he took his eighth wife, a girl of 15.) He is the chief bannerman for House Tully, although Lord Hoster refers to him as the "late Lord Frey," on account of the Frey troops not arriving at the Battle of the Trident until the day was won.
