Descended of the First Men, the Karstarks have the blood of the Starks of Winterfell in their veins from a thousand years before when a younger son of the house named Karlon put down a rebel lord and was given lands. They are big, fierce men, bearded and long-haired, and favor wearing cloaks made of the pelts of seals, bears, and wolves. Karhold lies far to the northeast of Winterfell in the midst of a forest beyond the Last River. Their motto is, “The Sun of Winter.” Lord Rickard Karstark has three sons, his eldest and heir named Harrion, and a daughter named Alys.
