Lord Ryswell is thus far unnamed. He was lord of House Ryswell at some point, and his youngest son had joined the Night's Watch.[1]


Lord Ryswell's youngest son was one of the legendary seventy-nine sentinels who deserted their posts at the Nightfort and went south to the lands of House Ryswell. They hoped that Lord Ryswell would aid them, but instead they were captured and imprisoned within the Wall.[1]

Lord Ryswell, as he was dying, had himself carried to the Wall to take the black of the Night's Watch, so he could stand beside the son that he had condemned to certain death.[1]
