A gruff northern man-at-arms in service of Lord Roose Bolton, Steelshanks Walton is known for the mail leggings he wears.
It appears he will only be known as Steelshanks on the show.
Steelshanks is taked with taking Ser Jaime Lannister to King’s Landing, but Jaime convinces him to ride back to Harrenhal to retrieve Brienne of Tarth. After Jaime leaps into the bear pit to protect Brienne, Steelshanks is compelled to take a crossbow and shoot the bear to help insure his charge is not killed. Jaime and Brienne both travel on with Steelshanks to King’s Landing, along with Qyburn.
