A young Ranger of the Night’s Watch, Will was originally a commoner in the riverlands until the day he was caught poaching by Lord Mallister’s mens. Given the choice between losing a hand or taking the black on the Wall, he chose the latter. He has been a ranger for four years, and is a veteran a hundred ranging expeditions beyond the Wall. No one can move as silently through the woods as he can.
On the show, the character’s name and and background is never given.
Unlike the novel, it is Will—not Gared—who survives the attack of the Others, and is driven mad with terror to ultimately be executed by Lord Eddard Stark as a deserter and oathbreaker.
The Westeros network consists of several different sites, including a forum and a wiki, for all your A Song of Ice and Fire needs.
