During the siege of Moat Cailin, Ramsay Bolton sends Theon Greyjoy to offer the ironborn garrison of Moat Cailin food and safe passage if they surrender to House Bolton unarmed. Theon succeeds in entering the Gatehouse Tower, where he discovers forty-eight ironmen are still holding the tower. Most are men from House Codd.
