Lord of the Dreadfort and head of House Bolton, Roose takes pride in his family's sigil of a flayed man. Although the practice has been banned in the North, the Boltons famously skin their enemies as a means of torture. A proven soldier who fought at the Battle of the Trident, Bolton has joined Robb Stark, his liege lord, on the battlefield.
"He's good at skinning men alive,
but diplomacy...?" — Robb Stark
