* DeathFakedForYou: In order to "prove" loyalty to the Lannisters, Wyman appears to have executed Davos when he came to White Harbor as a messenger. In actuality, a random prisoner was executed, and [[spoiler: Davos is sent on a mission to bring back Rickon Stark.]] Slightly subverted in that Wyman makes it clear to [[spoiler:Davos]] that he has been keeping him in his dungeons for a few weeks because he was fully prepared to "discover" the fake, blame the jailer, and produce and execute the real guy if it looked like the Boltons weren't buying it.

Originally a Southron House located in the Reach, several centuries ago the Manderlys were driven from their seat of Dunstonbury due to their growing wealth and power threatening House Gardener's rule, and fled north; there, they were taken under the protection of House Stark and given control of the Wolf's Den (the former seat of the extinct and rebellious House Greystark), eventually building the city of White Harbor and raising the New Castle as their seat. They are known for UndyingLoyalty to the Starks, always citing the Starks' initial open-handedness to them as the reason, and are the only Seven-worshipping major House in the North, their exile having occurred after the Andal invasion. They have several lesser houses sworn to them along with more than a hundred landed knights, allowing them to field more soldiers than any other House in the North.

* SpiritedYoungLady: Absolutely unafraid of speaking out against the Freys, Boltons, and Lannisters, even with her father still being held captive. Lord Wyman chastises her for not understanding how clandestine LaResistance has to be.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyEvil: While he's dismissive of Davos, nothing he says to Wyman is wrong or particularly malicious, and it's not made clear if he's innocent or working for the Lannisters.


Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: Nothing he says is outright wrong.

** Roose Bolton. They are both some of the most powerful Northern Lords. The Lord of the Dreadfort is a skinny health nut while Wyman Manderly is a morbidly obese glutton. Given all of the Food Porn in the series, it's obvious who is supposed to be the more sympathetic of the two.
*** Additionally, as a Seven-worshipping Andal (not to mention managing a shipping and trading empire as the head of the only city in the North) Wyman could be seen as representing the "new," at least relative to Roose Bolton, who not only is a First Man who worships the old gods, but who practices some customs such as the right of first night and flayings that have fallen out of favor elsewhere, though Roose cares little for the ancient tradition of guest right. The Boltons are an old Northern House who have often rebelled against the Starks and end up displacing them as rulers of the North, taking control by one of them marrying a fake Stark. The Manderlys are relatively new to the North but are very loyal to the Starks and trying to return them to rule the North. The Manderlys also tried to become the rulers of another Kingdom, the Reach, when a Gardner King died without sons and one of his daughters was married to Lord Manderly, the Manderlys were eventually driven out of the Reach as they threatened the Gardeners, but settled in the North.

** Doran Martell. While the two live a continent away, Wyman plays a very similar role in the story as Doran Martell. Both are physical invalids who gain a reputation as appeasers while secretly plotting revenge and the restoration of the House they support. [[spoiler: So far though, Wyman has been more successful and open about his motives. They also both have female relatives (Doran's daughter Arianne and bastard nieces the Sand Snakes, and Wyman's younger granddaughter Wylla) who more openly want revenge]].
** The Rat Cook. They were insulted by an Andal King, so murdered the King's son and fed them to the King in a pie. They had a right to vengeance, but were punished for transgressing Guest Right. Wyman Manderly's son Wendel and King Robb Stark are murdered by the Freys and Boltons while they are the Frey's guests. [[spoiler: In revenge, Manderly murders three of the Freys, puts them in pies, and serves them to the Freys and Boltons, even wanting a song about the Rat Cook. However, unlike the Rat Cook, it is implied Wyman waits till the Freys are no longer his guests to murder them]].
