Appearance and Character
- See also: Images of Godry Farring
Godry is a tall, broad-shouldered and brawny man. He is thought by both Jon Snow and Asha Greyjoy as arrogant and vain, hungry for glory, deaf to caution and a glutton for praise. Godry looks down on smallfolk, northmen, and women.
A Storm of Swords
A Feast for Crows
A Dance with Dragons
In the practice yard of Castle Black, Godry attempts to goad Lord Commander Jon Snow of the Night's Watch into a fight, but is ignored. He is among the queen's men in the common room who witness Jon Snow's confrontation with Janos Slynt, and laughs when Slynt refuses to obey the Lord Commander's orders. During the execution of "Mance Rayder", Godry rides the horse Mance is tied to, and drags him to the cage in which he is burned by Melisandre.
Godry is among those who march with Stannis on Deepwood Motte and then Winterfell. He leads the vanguard of Stannis's army. Godry leads the prayers to R'hllor at the nightfires and constantly urges Stannis to make an offering to R'hllor in order to stop the blizzard slowing the march of the army. He gets his wish when four men are caught in the act of cannibalism and are subsequently staked and burned at the crofters' village.
