Lord Ryswell (Night's Watch)
|Allegiance|| Night's Watch|
|Book(s)||A Storm of Swords (Mentioned)|
His youngest son was one of Seventy-nine sentinels and according to the story, he and his fellow watchmen deserted their posts at the Nightfort and went south to the lands of House Ryswell hoping Lord Ryswell would aid them but instead, they were captured and brought back to the Wall. As punishment, holes were cut into the Wall and each of the deserters, including Lord Ryswell's son, were placed in their own hole with spears and horns and then the holes were sealed up while they lived. 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.
