-->''"Youíre mine. Mine, as I'm yours. And if we die, we die. All men must die, Jon Snow. But first we'll live."''

A wildling spearwife, Ygritte is first encountered by Jon Snow while he's scouting Mance Rayder's army in the Skirling Pass, where he captures and then frees her. After Jon joins the wildlings as a FakeDefector, she takes a great interest in him, having taken his refusal to kill her when she was his captive as a sign he has feelings for her. Eventually, Jon really does start to love her, which provides him with much angst because his vows as a member of the Night's Watch demand celibacy. Not to mention that he's got to turn his cloak again soon...

"''

A wildling spearwife, Ygritte is first encountered by Jon Snow while he's scouting One of Mance Rayder's army lieutenants, The Lord O'Bones ('Rattleshirt' to his enemies) is arrogant, vicious, and petty, dressing himself in the Skirling Pass, where he bones of his enemies. He is the one who captures Jon Snow, and then frees her. After Jon joins the wildlings as a FakeDefector, she takes a great interest in him, having taken his refusal to kill her when she was his captive as a sign he has feelings for her. Eventually, Jon really does start to love her, which provides remains extremely suspicious of him with much angst because his vows as a member of the Night's Watch demand celibacy. Not to mention that he's got to turn his cloak again soon...throughout ''A Storm Of Swords''.



* AccidentalMarriage: Or what passes for marriage in wildling society anyway -- when Qhorin Halfhand and [[HeroicBastard Jon Snow]] capture Ygritte and her group while on a ranging, and Jon refuses to kill Ygritte, saving her life, Ygritte takes this to mean that he wants her, because for a wildling woman to stay with a man, he has to capture her first and live in order to prove himself to her. However, Jon had no idea about any of this and is stunned to hear it, explaining that he never meant for Ygritte to take it this way and has none of these intentions toward her. Nonetheless, Ygritte spends about half of the story trying to sleep with Jon, much to Jon's chagrin and embarrassment.
* ArcherArchetype: Her preferred weapon is a bow.
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Jon, who eventually succumbs to Ygritte's advances, and they do [[StarCrossedLovers fall in love]].
* CatchPhrase: Directed at Jon when he demonstrates a lack of knowledge about the wildings or says something she considers naive.
-->'''Ygritte:''' You know nothing, Jon Snow.
* CharacterDeath: [[spoiler:Killed by an arrow during the wildling attack on Castle Black]].
* DatingCatwoman: Jon starts sleeping with her while undercover among the wildlings.
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler:Jon finds her with an arrow in her chest and holds her as she dies]].
* FaceDeathWithDignity: When she believes Jon is about to execute her on the orders of his superior officer, she asks only that he does it clean and burns her body afterward. [[spoiler:Jon can't bring himself to do it and lets her go.]]
* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler:Told to Jon as she dies]].
-->'''Ygritte:''' [[spoiler:Oh. You know nothing, Jon Snow.]]
* FieryRedhead: The wildlings describe people with red hair as being "kissed by fire", which is an excellent description of Ygritte's personality.
* HeroesWantRedheads: Despite his angst about breaking his vows, it's clear that Jon genuinely has feelings for her and that he loves her. He admits his love for Ygritte in his thoughts.
* IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten: Twisted. "If you're really a wildling, [[AllWomenAreLustful fuck me]]."
* TheImmodestOrgasm: Her reaction to "The Lord's Kiss".
* LikeBrotherAndSister: With Longspear Ryk, who she grew up with.
* OnlyOneName: Like most of the Wildlings she has no House name.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Quite proud to be a wildling and a spearwife.
* StarCrossedLovers: With Jon. She falls in love with Jon, a Night's Watchmen from the south, and he falls in love with her. Because of their different worlds, they cannot be together, no matter how much they may want it.
* UptightLovesWild: Jon falls for her partly because of how carefree she is.
* WhenSheSmiles: While Ygritte is not conventionally beautiful in appearance, Jon notes how warm and pretty her smile is, which is one of her prettiest features.
* WildHair: To the point where Jon is tempted to ask "if she only brushed it at the changing of the seasons" but he loves her wild tangle of curls.

Unlike the rest of the Free Folk, the Thenns have laws and rulers, trade with the giants and their wildling neighbours, and know how to ''A Dance With Dragons''.forge bronze.



* AwesomeMcCoolname: He was originally named "Lump", and deliberately chose the name Varamyr to be more impressive (not difficult), and as he added additional "skins" (animals he'd skinchange into), he changed his sobriquet accordingly.
* TheBadGuyWins: His backstory shows him becoming so powerful that dozens of villages paid him homage. The story positions him as the typical villain to these people who every so often produce a hero to slay him to save their women from his sexual advances. But in his story, he always defeated the heroes who challenged him and continued keeping the villages and their women in thrall.
* TheBeastmaster: He is a warg who can wear the skins of six different animals at once, not all of them wolves.
* BearsAreBadNews: One of his beasts is a huge snow bear (polar bear)
* BiTheWay: Sometimes wargs into the female wolf of the pack he controls while she's being mounted. Yeah...
* BodySurf: Mainly with animals, including to deprive other skinchangers of their "second life" in their animal hosts, but as a last-ditch effort, he tries to save himself by taking over a Wildling woman.
* BondCreatures: Yes-no: he has a number of creatures he regularly uses for skinchanging at any one time and is always looking to expand the collection, if possible. The thing is... he's not particularly close to them in the way you'd quite expect, considering the other skinchangers' experiences we get to know much about. And, certainly not in the way that the Stark wargs are close to their direwolves.
* TheDreaded: He was this to some groups of Wildlings before he joined with Mance. They feared him so much that they paid him homage and even gave him sexual favors.
* EvilCounterpart: Before Varamyr all we'd seen are the 'good' Stark wargs, so the oft-mentioned prejudice against skinchangers seems unreasonable. Varamyr shows this belief is not without justification.
* EvilSorcerer: He uses his magic to terrorize other Wildlings and even force women to have sex with him.
* FateWorseThanDeath: Even after the wights kill his physical body, he lives on in his wolf, gleefully living out the very thing he stole from his mentor... Until he comes across a Warg even more powerful than himself: Bran. Varamyr is quickly overpowered and dominated, forced to spend the last of his days as nothing more than a member of Summer's wolf pack.
* {{Foil}}: To Bran, primarily. However, if any of the Stark kids (like, say Arya) were to go off the rails with their gift, this guy is who they could become.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He started as a weak and unwanted child, but once he discovered his powers, he became powerful, influential and widely feared.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Varamyr only cares about Varamyr -- and, he throws a prima donna strop if somebody either doesn't fear him or simply doesn't rate him.
* KarmicDeath: His attempts to steal Thistle's body only draws the Wights to their location.
* LackOfEmpathy: Even though he knows exactly what it's like to be other creatures, he really couldn't give a fuck about what they want as individuals. His toys!
* MentorOccupationalHazard: One he [[InvokedTrope brought up on his own]]. Most Wargs will live on through their bonded animal after death (at least until the animal's death), and Varamyr took his mentor's wolf by force, thus dooming him to die a natural death.
* MrExposition: His chapter includes the "Rules of Warging" that he learned from his master. Interestingly, Bran Stark [[ObliviouslyEvil unknowingly]] breaks more rules and goes even farther in some respects than even Varamyr was willing to go.
* PantheraAwesome: He also controls a shadowcat.
* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Skinchanges into a shadowcat to force women to come to him. This deconstructs Ygritte's justification of BestHerToBedHer -- you can't cut the throat of a man who you know will only BodySurf into another creature and tear you to pieces. Or worse, might take your own body over.
* SavageWolves: He controls a small pack of three wolves.
* SerialRapist: Until he was press-ganged into Mance's army, Varamyr primarily used his powers to force women to do whatever he demanded. If anyone from their villages tried to rescue them, Varamyr would murder them.
* SquishyWizard: He's not physically imposing, but is powerful and dangerous because he mentally controls animals including three wolves, a [[PantheraAwesome shadowcat]], and a [[BearsAreBadNews gigantic snow bear]].
* UnfortunateNames: While his name at the start of the story is pretty cool, it makes you wonder what his name was when he only had only the four skins.
* UngratefulBastard: Varamyr makes a habit of completely screwing over the people who try to help him. He starts by stealing his mentor's wolf, and his final act is to try and steal the body of the woman who risked everything to save him.
* VillainProtagonist: Varamyr's story is that of the traditional fantasy underdog character who discovers that they have impressive magical powers, with the twist that Varamyr spends his entire life using his to terrorize others and fulfill his selfish desires.

A legendary wildling raider. Arson tried to cross the Wall by digging through its base. When he was midway under the ice, he was discovered by a patrol from the Nightfort.

The legend says that by listening with an ear against the Wall, one can still hear the sound of Arson's axe digging the ice. Since this time, the Night's Watch send infrequent patrols along the base of the Wall on its North face to look for traces of excavation.
