Roose is the guy who murdered a woman's husband in front of her and then raped her under the dangling corpse. He is definitely not lacking in the sadism department. When he chastises Ramsay, he doesn't condemn Ramsay's behavior. He condemns Ramsay.. . He also owns a suit of dark grey plate armor over a quilted tunic of blood-red leather. Its rondels are shaped like human heads whose mouths are open in agony. Its helmet has streamers of red silk which flutter in the wind. Usually worn with it is a pink woolen cloak embroidered with droplets of blood. Roose wields sword and dagger.

Eddard Stark had never had any reason to complain of the Lord of the Dreadfort, so far as Jon knew, but even so he had never trusted him, with his whispery voice and his pale, pale eyes. Share your thoughts, experiences and the tales behind the art

And, although I do subscribe to Branvras’s theory of Ramsay actually not being Roose’s son, and being a creature sent to him, there is the strange matter of succession for the Dreadfort and Winterfell.Though mild-mannered, Roose is remorseless and implacable. He is considered to be cold and cunning. Roose's voice is small and soft; he rarely raises his voice, forcing those who listen to do so intently, falling silent. Roose sips his alcohol, preferring hippocras, or hot spiced wine, although he is also willing to drink ale and regular wine. Roose's personal motto is "A peaceful land, a quiet people". This is why he rose Ramsey to his heir after the murder of Domeric. There is a good chance that Dom was not even Roose's son, but Brandon Stark's (the elder).The castle, still damaged from Ramsay’s sacking of it in A Clash of Kings, is repaired after Roose orders two dozen squatters to rebuild the fortress in exchange for his mercy. He later hangs every squatter after their work on Winterfell is completed. Walda Frey-Bolton smiled shyly, her chubby cheeks turning a soft shade of endearing pink that made it impossible for you not to grin back at her. She truly was the sweetest person you had ever met, and that only served to further confuse you about the Bolton family because Mr. Roose Bolton was in no way, shape, or form sweet

I feel that perhaps the biggest crime of this season is that they haven't managed to squeeze in more Roose scenes - it looks like we're getting Moat Cailin in two weeks, so hopefully we'll find out just what day Roose really rues then. I think that McElhatton's portrayal of Roose is a fantastic portrayal of a slightly different character. I think I might actually like show Roose more than book Roose, who gave off quite a stereotypical creep vibe. There is something fantastic in McElhatton's performance, the way he walked up to Ramsay, the way he smiled after the Red Wedding, and how he looks at Catelyn before the Red Wedding massacre begins. They all make me fear him, but love him as a "baddie". Welp, more Bolton fan art, guys Dx So now my home page has four straight ASoIaF pictures on it. This must be remedied. Original stuff will follow, or my name isn't Mary Poppins. Which it isn't, but MW and MC are up next, it's a personal rule I have. Let's hope I come up with something halfway decent x I kind of mentioned this in the bit about his skill as a politician, but I'll add a bit to it. Unless he wins over some allies soon, or defeats the other stronger lords who oppose him, he's in for a harsh Winter. Even if Stannis were to fail at the Battle of Winterfell, it wouldn't be long before other lords rose up. As they are many Houses are licking their wounds from the war, so none will mount a direct attack, but perhaps some skullduggery could be in order?
level 2Steven the cook8 points · 4 years agoRamsay murdered Domeric according to Roose. The poison doesn't sound like Ramsay's MO. I think Roose had him killed.There is almost no evidence that Roose is in any way a 'brilliant' military tactician; he lacks Tywin's battlefield genius, Stannis's general tactical and strategic aptitudes (plus his proven record with navies, cavalry and ground forces), or Victarion's intuition and capacity as a front-line wedge-formation shock trooper and morale catalyst. His perceived genius at the Green Fork is undermined by /u/BryndenBFish's strong case that Bolton was firing arrows into the melee. His military aptitude has only ever been for taking care of himself and his own.What will interest me is how Stannis and the 'Abel situation' will affect him. As shown in ADWD, suddenly betrays a note of fear. I get the sense of someone who sees life as a series of hills on an otherwise slow rolling plain; suddenly things upset his applecart. You get the sense of a person who was bored, having everything in hand, when suddenly the ant beneath his foot suddenly turns into a scorpion. A Dreadful Time (ASOIAF Domeric Bolton SI) Thread She might've been the best looking person I'd seen in Westeros. Watch yourself, Domeric, these people are no friends of yours, said a voice in the back of my mind. I followed her closely, but not too closely House Bolton of The Dreadfort is an old line descended from the First Men and dating back to the Age of Heroes. Their sigil is a flayed man, of the color red, on a pink background. The Bolton's are infamous for flaying their enemies, and their house words are Our Blades Are Sharp. The Dreadfort is a fortress in northeastern Westeros, laying on the bank of the upper Weeping Water. It is.
This is why he rose Ramsey to his heir after the murder of Domeric. There is a good chance that Dom was not even Roose's son, but Brandon Stark's (the elder). So therefore it was no big loss to Roose, since it probably works best with a blood descendent. Now that he has legitimized Ramsey, he can be killed and occupied at any time -- probably after Fat Walda has whelped a son or two to provide fodder for the next switch. Some of the most heavily-armored units fielded in Westeros, their heavy twohanded flails make enemy shields all but useless. The. Skip to content. Submit.

Not sure how anything described merits "failure."
Ramsay is a tool for Roose to use. First, Roose used Ramsay to sack and burn Winterfell. I think /u/shopeIV convinced me that Ramsay was acting under orders from Roose Bolton to sack Winterfell as opposed to just acting out under the power of his own cruelty.While he may not look like how Roose Bolton is physically described in the books, Michael McElhatton brings more to the role than I ever expected. He has captured the essence of Roose without the use of the soft voice, leeching, or pink cloak. His scene with David Bradley last year in episode ten of season three was chilling to witness. McElhatton has captured the pragmatic coldness of Roose to a tee and it is amazing to watch. I honestly can’t wait to see more of him in the future, especially his scenes with Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Snow). Given the general outcry to Ramsay Bolton in the show, they could not handle the actual character. Read an ASIOF wiki article and you'd see how utterly horrible he is. In book 2, he marries Lady Hornwood (by force), then locks her in the tower w.. Roose Bolton is the Lord of the Dreadfort and head of House Bolton. He is convinced that regular leechings improve a person's health, and as such frequently has himself leeched, which has led to some calling him the Leech Lord. In the television adaptation Game of Thrones he is portrayed by Michael McElhatton.
All in all, Winterfell is going to be bloodbath but whether or not Roose Bolton is sowing or shedding that blood remains to be seen. We will only really find out for sure in The Winds of Winter.Different from the books, but I think McElhatton adds an almost playfully evil aspect to Roose's personality -- and I think that adds a subtle aspect to Roose's personality which I enjoy.level 2Magnar of Magnaring1 point · 6 years agoI used to favor the theory that Roose will become the new Night's King, but I've come more and more to believe that it will be Stannis who assumes that role.Roose’s rule over the North appears more and more tenuous as it seems that many Northern lords are plotting against him for his perceived role in the Red Wedding, the presence of the Freys, and because of Ramsay’s sacking of Winterfell in addition to his many heinous acts of cruelty throughout the North.Though they are one of the oldest houses in recorded history. They have always had a tentative relationship with the Stark house. Lots of rebellions and wars between them.
level 2Crowns of gold aren't always cold61 points · 6 years agoAnd there's part of me that finds the fandom's love of Roose a bit troubling.The Boltons threatened Winterfell during the reign of King Edrick Snowbeard. At some point unspecified centuries ago, the Boltons rebelled against the Starks. The Stark armies besieged the Dreadfort for two years before the Boltons capitulated to King Harlon Stark and dipped their banners once more.The boy is a sly creature by all accounts, and he has a servant who is almost as cruel as he is. Reek, they call the man. It's said he never bathes. They hunt together, the Bastard and this Reek, and not for deer. I've heard tales, things I can scarce believe, even of a Bolton.. However, Roose has at least one blind spot, or what appears to be a blind spot anyway; his son, Ramsay.Where do you get that Domeric might have been a Stark? Just curious about that, because by and large I agree with you.
297 AC. I was in 297 AC. Ramsay Snow had been born in 279 AC - not long after Domeric's birth, actually. The two of them had grown up side by side - albeit without being entirely aware of each other's presence - both with the same pale eyes ramsay bolton Roose Bolton fat walda reek theon greyjoy game of thrones asoiaf incorrect asoiaf quotes Source: Spongebob Squarepants 708 notes Jun 25th, 2015 Open in ap Roose: Lord Tywin is many leagues from here. He has many matters yet to settle at King's Landing. He will not march on Harrenhal for some time. As a politician, I struggle to get a read on Roose. There are just too many unknowns and he seems far too intelligent to make such obvious mistakes. I believe that there may be something much deeper behind his decision to bring the Freys back North with him but I just do not know. It seems like a coin toss.
I think the Winds of Winter are the last ride of the Roose. I don't see any way he can survive Winterfell. Ramsay, on the other hand, I could see as a character that could last till the very end, but Roose is surrounded by enemies and is losing loyalty by the minute. Him and the Freys with him have a lot of problems on their hands.I disagree. While the Freys are uniformly despised, it's not like Bolton's role in the Red Wedding is unknown. Stark loyalists would be upset either way and Frey's men won't betray Bolton because no one else would trust them in their right mind. They're completely dependant on Bolton and they bolster his numbers. I'd argue their presence is a net gain for House Bolton Our Blades Are Shar
Like him, as a person? No; he is abhorrent. Like him as a character. Yes, I love him. Likely evil, yet thoughtful, patient, and reserved. "A peaceful land, a quiet people." He knows how to satisfy his personal lusts without becoming a megalomaniac. He's subtle, and I respect how he keeps his true motivations well hidden. I still don't know what he's actually after, and if it's just power, I don't know why.It’s not just the fact that he murdered and is responsible for the deaths of several of my favourite characters, and was subsequently rewarded for doing so. It’s the fact that he doesn’t seem to care if he loses everything because of what he’s done. To commit murder and treason for a reward is one horrible and despicable thing but to not even really care about that reward afterwards, that’s just infuriating. If you’re not even going to try and defend what you stole, then what was the point of stealing it in the first place?.He was the father of Ramsay Bolton - his legitimized bastard - and an unnamed newborn baby from his wife, Walda Frey.. During the War of the Five Kings, Roose serves King in the North Robb Stark as one of his top generals Bolton's silence was a hundred times more threatening than Vargo Hoat's slobbering malevolence. Pale as morning mist, his eyes concealed more than they told.
Ramsay has been trying to raise his station in life and be legitimized for a long time. He most likely killed Roose's legitimate heir, and then masterminded the taking of Winterfell in the hopes that he would be legitimized for it.As the Starks fell, the Boltons would rise. Roose was given the title of Warden of the North, a note of legitimacy for his bastard in addition to a marriage between Ramsay and “Arya Stark”, who is really just Jeyne Poole in disguise. Dec 3, 2016 - i think the turning point is when macbeth killed the old king.it is the first time he murder,he taste the feeling of blood and after that he became the king.and it made him greener There could be many reasons for why so many of Roose’s children have died. The medieval setting of A Song of Ice and Fire as well the weather patterns of this world gives credence to the idea that a high infant mortality rate is not unheard of. The wives of Stannis Baratheon and Jorah Mormont as well as that of Lysa Arryn and Daenerys Targaryen seem to suffer from such pregnancy and birth related complications. Roose’s wives may have struggled to bring their children to term and further struggled to keep the children alive in a region as hard and unforgiving as the North.

. And when Arya "speaks out of turn" to him, I get the same feeling. When Reek thinks he was a fool to mess with Roose when they were with Robb, he's right. Roose is a scary s.o.b.It was a pattern repeated in his military career. Hell, even in Winterfell, Roose Bolton sends out the Manderlys and Freys to attack Stannis. Though, this is a part of his cold cunning. He's sending out the two most contentious houses from Winterfell. If they die in the blizzard, it solves the problem of dissension. Moreover, it solves the problem of feeding 3000 soldiers. And if they defeat Stannis, great. Roose is trying to make a win-win for himself. But I think Roose is in for a nasty surprise.Despite being named Warden of the North, Roose's support among some northern lords is grudging. The first to declare for him are the Dustins and Ryswells, to whom he is related through his second wife, Bethany. The faction of House Umber led by Hother Whoresbane declares for him since the Greatjon is in Frey captivity, and the Cerwyns, Lockes, and Manderlys send men as well. Robett Glover and Lord Wyman Manderly distrust the Boltons, however. Arnolf Karstark, the castellan of Karhold who publicly declares for Stannis Baratheon, is secretly in league with Roose and awaits the moment to turn his cloak. The Boltons and Karstarks plan to defeat Stannis by drawing him against the Dreadfort.

Could it be that his ancestors needed to hide something from the old gods? They say after the unsuccessful rebellion with the Greystarks they swore to give up their flaying custom. But did they?
Eventually, Roose was ordered by Ser Edmure Tully of Riverrun to march on Harrenhal with Ser Helman Tallhart. Seeking to limit the harm to his army, Roose made a deal with the leader of the Brave Companions, Lord Vargo Hoat, in exchange for his company’s help (with some unexpected assistance from Arya Stark) in taking Harrenhal from Ser Armory Lorch and the Lannister garrison that were stationed at the fortress. Roose even made the incognito Arya Stark his cupbearer for a time; Arya later escaped with Gendry and Hot Pie.I’m not sure. On one hand, he seems to be aware that Manderly and the other lords are plotting against him giving the idea that he is aware of and plans to do something about it. On the other hand though, I don’t think he is aware of just how far or how complex the betrayal goes. He is aware that people hate him and want vengeance against the Freys and must be planning to do something about it but is dealing with far more pressing issues like Stannis for the moment. It’s possible that he thinks the Northern resistance is just a small and insignificant group as opposed to a potentially full blown rebellion.No, I really don’t like Roose and I gleefully look forward to the day of his horribly violent death. Roose is a cold hearted monster who would sell his own mother for a grape if it suited him. The man has orchestrated the deaths of thousands people, committed rape, and horrific war crimes during his time in the Riverlands during the War of the Five Kings. Roose Bolton is the Tywin Lannister of the North; practical to the point of inhumanity. # the others asoiaf. Reblogged 6 years ago from stannisbaratheon 1,504 notes.

I think he's a great character, but a terrible, terrible person. I mean, I'm subscribed to r/dreadfort, and even have a Bolton t-shirt, but I wear it with a healthy dose of irony, like it were a shirt supporting Voldemort or the Galactic Empire.Roose has no feelings, you see. Those leeches that he loves so well sucked all the passions out of him years ago. He does not love, he does not hate, he does not grieve. This is a game to him, mildly diverting. Some men hunt, some hawk, some tumble dice. Roose plays with men. You and me, these Freys, Lord Manderly, his plump new wife, even his bastard, we are but his playthings.
“Eddard Stark had never had any reason to complain of the Lord of the Dreadfort, so far as Jon knew, but even so he had never trusted him, with his whispery voice and his pale, pale eyes.”Seemingly surrounded by allies, willing and unwilling, behind Winterfell’s great walls, Roose appears to have the advantage of Stannis and his Northern allies. However, as many readers suspect (myself included), Roose is actually being played by his “Northern allies” most of whom have little love for Houses Bolton and Frey and much respect, love, and deference for the fallen Stark family. As such, they are plotting against Roose to return the wolves to Winterfell."Reek" brings the Dreadfort's garrison to Winterfell and betrays Rodrik's host in a battle at Winterfell. "Reek" uncovers his true identity as Ramsay to Theon and orders the sack of Winterfell.
But I'd love to hear more theorizing on what purpose Roose has for keeping Ramsay around -- he is obviously unpredictable. Thousands of years ago, the Dreadfort rose in an unsuccessful rebellion with the Greystarks of the Wolf's Den against the Starks. The Boltons survived the rebellion, although the Greystarks did not.In the Show, Rast the Rapist is a mutineer at Craster’s, and he dies a traitor. In the books, he dies like this:

Ok this is my first post and I'm not sure if what I'm about to ask has been discussed here before but I really need to discuss this.All of the above extended tangent is meant to say that I don't think we're supposed to root for individuals in the story who come very close to being truly evil. Roose was a rapist and murderer well before he was a Lord who intentionally sent bannermen to die and then ultimately a traitor.The bear was dead, pale and rotting, its fur and skin all sloughed off and half its right arm burned to bone, yet still it came on.

His swing near took the bear’s head off. And then the bear took his. Roose Bolton is a man of average height with a soft and hairless body, a plain face and short fingers. His eyes are pale and frightening, paler even than his son Ramsay's. In combat, he wears dark mail and a pink fur cloak. He is extremely hard to read. He is a cunning, mysterious and intimidating man, almost as authoritative as Tywin Lannister.
Martin plants clues all over the texts for the readers to predict future events. Many future events are a repeat of the past, slightly modified. Winterfell's current state of things can be summed up in the story of Bael the Bard.  Ygritte pract.. Roose, Ramsay and the Bolton army remain at Winterfell awaiting Stannis's host, which is slowed by a blizzard during their march on Winterfell. Several Bolton men are murdered during the wait, and suspicion is cast on several of the bannermen. In truth, however, most of the murders are committed by the singer Abel and his women, who are actually Mance Rayder and several free folk spearwives on a mission to free "Arya Stark". The murders raise tensions within the castle. Tempers flare when Lord Manderly insults the murdered Little Walder Frey; a clash ensues that leads to the deaths of several men-at-arms. Having learned that Stannis's army is three days from Winterfell, Roose orders the Freys and Manderlys to leave Winterfell by separate gates and march on Stannis's position. Arya Stark hears that Lord Bolton has occupied the ruby ford. In an effort to limit Lord Tywin Lannister's options, who has marched from Harrenhal in an attempt to meet Robb in the westerlands, Ser Edmure Tully commands Roose to join Ser Helman Tallhart, who is coming south from the Twins, and to retake Harrenhal. I used to favor the theory that Roose will become the new Night's King, but I've come more and more to believe that it will be Stannis who assumes that role. In that event, Roose becomes a tasty dragon morsel.A man of mostly unknown origins, Roose, was born a son of House Bolton; one of the oldest families in the North that were infamous for their rebellions against House Stark as well as their custom of flaying their enemies and wearing their skins as cloaks. Roose was raised in the formidable fortress known as the Dreadfort: a castle and title he would later go on to inherit.

He is not confident in his hability to rule the north. He professes contempt for his bastard, even doubts that Ramsay is truly his son. Roose's political analysis of the situation in the north seems to leave little hope for Ramsay to prevail. In Winterfell, Roose and Ramsay don't seem to talk to each other. ...given the Freys had killed many Northern sons and daughters at the Red Wedding. Whether these were intentional moves to draw out any threats to his rule in the North or just political blunders remains to be seen. I do believe that there is more than meets the eye here though. Something else is going on. In Game of Thrones / ASOIAF, is Roose Bolton secretly an immortal being who steals and wears the skins of other people? This isn't even the craziest Game of Thrones theory. This video contains.
House Bolton of the Dreadfort is an extinct Great House from the North.After the Red Wedding, they became the Great House of the North, having usurped their position from their former liege lords, House Stark.Their original lands were in the northeast of the Stark territories. Their stronghold was a castle called the Dreadfort and the head of the house was the Lord of the Dreadfort Knowing it was wrong hadn't stopped you all the times before though. The two of you had been fooling around since before he became a Bolton. Since he was just a Snow and first came to the Dreadfort. It had started out as advances made from him. Small touches he would place to your skin when no one was looking or you were distracted A knight and his squire traveling alone is a common thing in Westeros, including people of extremely high rank (as in Dunk and Egg). Westeros reckons a man grown at sixteen years, and Domeric is only a few months removed from that so I decided to go with it. They think about these things much differently from modern people
House Hornwood: "And do you imagine the Hornwood men have forgotten the Bastard’s last marriage, and how his lady wife was left to starve, chewing her own fingers? What do you think passes through their heads when they hear the new bride weeping? Valiant Ned’s precious little girl." (ADWD, The Turncloak)Aenys: You do not know the Lannisters as we do, my lord. King Stannis thought Lord Tywin was a thousand leagues away as well, and it undid him. The smell was something he was born with. A curse, the smallfolk said. The gods had made him stink so that men would know his soul was rotting.
At House Bolton, we have a very specific way of doing things that can, admittedly, be difficult for some partners to understand. But Westeros Design proved to us that they were team players, willing to make many a sacrifice to arrive at an acceptable final solution. And we had tremendous fun along the way. — ramsay bolton This is the first one of these I've done, and I massively enjoyed it! There were a few times where I felt I was kinda grasping at straws, so apologies for that. Thanks for reading if you made it this far!
It’s pretty much obvious that Ramsay hates Winterfell and that he wants the Dreadfort. But what does Roose pretend to do then, with Ramsay? He already predicted and accepted that Ramsay is going murder any babe born from his marriage with Fat Walda.The flayed man was the sigil of House Bolton, Theon knew; ages past, certain of their lords had gone so far as to cloak themselves in the skins of dead enemies. A number of Starks had ended thus. Supposedly all that had stopped a thousand years ago, when the Boltons had bent their knees to Winterfell. Or so they say, but old ways die hard, as well I know.I think he will gladly let the Manderlys and Freys break themselves upon Stannis, once again attempting to restore peace by sending 'allies' to certain doom. His deception with Karstark failed, this poses a liability if Stannis can keep the discovery secret. One possibility is the notion that Stannis embattles the Freys/Manderlys and the crofter's village. After the win (or perhaps concurrently) he sends a contingent of northmen guised as Karstarks to Winterfell, perhaps a trojan horse of sorts. This could/would be his undoing. Or perhaps he is killed by Ramsay.
Most submitted with little resistance, save for a few outliers. However, Roose’s greatest problem was King Stannis Baratheon who had ridden to the aid of Castle Black and was now marshalling his forces to rid the North of the Boltons, Freys, and Ironborn.His decision to bring a force of Freys North was incredibly bad idea. While the Frey/Bolton force may have numerical superiority over any resistant Northern lords, they are universally despised by almost everyone. By bringing them North, Roose was essentially announcing his betrayal to the North and incensing every Stark loyalist against him. Sending the Freys to cow various Northern lords into submission was another mistake, albeit one with delicious consequences, given the Freys had killed many Northern sons and daughters at the Red Wedding. Whether these were intentional moves to draw out any threats to his rule in the North or just political blunders remains to be seen. I do believe that there is more than meets the eye here though. Something else is going on.This is very well said. Frankly I prefer it this way. It seems like one of those things that would just be disappointing if we ended up having the details spelled out for us, while the vagueness would just fuel imaginations. The Others, also known as the White Walkers among the wildlings, are major antagonists in the A Song of Ice and Fire series, as well as its TV adaptation Game of Thrones. Before the events in the novel, the Others had supposedly not been seen for thousand's of years. So far, the Others have appeared in the flesh only twice in the whole saga and their purpose remains unknown at this time.
During the capture of Winterfell by Theon Greyjoy, his men find Ramsay, still posing as Reek, in the dungeons. He continues to play the role of Reek, saying that his real name is Heke. Theon increasingly relies on the wretched creature, even going so far as accepting his suggestion to fake the deaths of Bran and Rickon Stark. Theon eventually sets him free, after "Reek" promises to bring him men from the Dreadfort in support. ASOIAF Roleplay is a FANDOM Books Community.

The affiliation to House Bolton is something we will talk about once we take a look at his Tactics Cards. Before we forget, let's talk about poor Theon who Ramsay brings along with him. Having Theon dragged around with you basically allows Ramsay to auto-panic an opponents' unit every turn, but the downside there is that if you roll a 5+, Theon. After Moat Cailin surrenders to Ramsay thanks to a browbeaten Theon Greyjoy, Roose meets his son and introduces him to his fiancee, "Arya Stark" (actually Jeyne Poole). Roose is greatly displeased by his son's actions, stating as much to Theon at Barrowton, where the northern lords are to gather for Ramsay and Jeyne's wedding. Roose is disgusted by the mistreatment of Theon, whom Ramsay calls Reek. After he hears that Stannis has retaken Deepwood Motte, Roose decides to have the wedding moved from Barrowton to Winterfell in order to bait Stannis. He is accompanied by his new wife, Walda. While at Harrenhal, Roose takes Arya as his cupbearer, mistaking her for a commoner named Nan. Arya is in attendance when Roose holds a council with the Freys; Roose lies naked and drained by leeches during the meeting. Because of Stannis Baratheon's defeat in the Battle of the Blackwater, the Freys do not think that Robb can now defeat Tywin. Roose issues orders to have Ser Helman Tallhart burn Darry and then join with Robett Glover to attack Duskendale. After the council Roose decides to hunt a pack of wolves near Harrenhal. Arya also learns from the Freys that they have been dishonored, but does not know why. Because Roose intends to leave her with the Brave Companions at Harrenhal, Arya steals a dagger and a map from Roose's solar and flees Harrenhal. Roose practices the abolished tradition of the first night, but he is discreet with his activities and amusements in order to avoid the attention and possible ire of the Wardens of the North, House Stark. While hunting along the Weeping Water, Roose once raped a young miller's wife and hanged the miller for not gaining his approval for their marriage. When the woman later presented a baby to Roose, he spared the bastard boy Ramsay because he had the same pale eyes as Roose. Lord Bolton granted the mill to the woman, sent her annual supplies and funds, and had the tongue of the miller's brother cut out to prevent Lord Rickard Stark from learning what had happened. Wars are rarely won by fighting nice Roose has an unremarkable body, neither plump, thin, nor muscular. He has pasty skin and a pallid chest, which is soft and hairless. Roose has short, strong fingers. He has a plain face, beardless and ordinary, with his only noticeable feature being his strange eyes, paler than stone and darker than milk, like two white moons. The color is sometimes called "ghost grey". His eyes are paler than those of his son, Ramsay.
