|Title||King of the Wildlings|
|Book(s)||A Dance with Dragons (appears)|
Gerrick is tall with long legs, broad shoulders, long red hair and a red beard.
Gerrick boasts of descent from Raymun Redbeard, a King-Beyond-the-Wall who invaded the north but was killed along with his sons in the battle at Long Lake. Tormund claims Gerrick actually descends from Raymun's younger brother, the Red Raven.
A Dance with Dragons
Gerrick comes through the Wall with the free folk, or wildlings, following Tormund. His red-haired son is one of the hostages that Jon Snow demands. Gerrick brings his three daughters with him when he swears his oath to Jon, who agrees to present them to Queen Selyse Florent.
Selyse attires Gerrick in clothes which once belonged to her husband, Stannis Baratheon. She arranges the betrothals of Gerrick's three daughters to Ser Axell Florent, her Hand, and to Ser Brus Buckler and Ser Malegorn of Redpool, two of the queen's men. Tormund doubts Selyse's claim that Gerrick is the true King of the Wildlings, descended in an unbroken male line from their great king, Raymun Redbeard.
