Secondary Character: Ygritte
House: None (Wildling)
Ygritte is a young "spearwife", what the wildlings call a wildling woman who knows how to fight. In any lord's court in the Seven Kingdoms, Ygritte's features would never have been considered anything but common, but Jon Snow has come to realize that there is an unconventional beauty about her, and he loves her for it. The wildlings consider Ygritte a great beauty because of her red hair; since red hair is rare among the wildlings, those who have it are said to be "kissed by fire", which is supposed to be lucky. As Jon Snow travels towards the Wall with the wildlings, he might just find some of that luck rubbing off on him as Ygritte teaches him a thing or two about love, passion and sex.
