Played by Francis Magee

An old “wandering crow” of the Night’s Watch, Yoren is a ranger who is regularly sent out to scour the Seven Kingdoms for recruits to the Watch. He’s described as stooped and sinister, with a twisted shoulder and greasy, lice-ridden black hair and beard. His teeth are stained red from the sourleaf he’s constantly chewing. Though ill-favored, he’s tough and pragmatic, with years of experience behind him.

On the show, Yoren is rather less unsavoury in appearance as well as manners.
