Ser Mors Westford, known as the Butcher, is a ranger of the Night's Watch originally from House Westford. He has only appeared in the video game Game of Thrones, in which he and Alester Sarwyck are playable characters.[1]


Fifteen years ago, during Robert's Rebellion, Mors was a knight of the westerlands who refused to carry out one of Lord Tywin Lannister's commands to his bannermen, and was given the choice of a traitor's death or the Wall. He took the black and became a member of the Night's Watch. He is now an officer and a ranger. Called "the Butcher", his chief task is finding and executing deserters from the Night's Watch. To help him, he has a large dog which helps him track runaways. Because Mors is a skinchanger, and because of his particular duties, it is said on the Wall that the dog is his only friend. He left his wife, Cerenna, and daughter Tya, in a cottage owned by his family in the riverlands, believing they would be safe there from Tywin. He hoped they would be able to return to the westerlands after a time.
