Appearance and Character

See also: Images of Satin

During the Battle of Castle Black, Satin claims to be eighteen years old.[2] He has attractive and has dark eyes, soft skin, a sweet voice[3], and black hair in curly ringlets.[2] He eventually grows a beard that he combs perfume into.[3] Jon Snow cites that he is quick to learn, clever, fearless in a fight, and can partially read and write.[3] He is a follower of the Faith of the Seven.[2]


Satin received his name while working as a whore at the Oldtown brothel where he had been born and raised.[2]

Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

The wandering crow Conwy brings Satin and other recruits from a dungeon near Gulltown to Castle Black. Before the great ranging, Jon Snow watches the new recruits being trained by Ser Endrew Tarth.[4]

A Storm of Swords

Satin helps defend the King's Tower at Castle Black from the wildlings, fighting alongside Jon. He pisses himself when the horns are first blown, but later proves to be a valuable asset to the defense of the castle.[2]

A Feast for Crows

Satin tears off half a finger nail in archery practice using a longbow.[5]

A Dance with Dragons

Satin finishes his training and is appointed to be a steward. He goes with Jon, the new Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, to take his oath in the weirwood grove in the haunted forest.[3] Satin had previously admitted to following the Seven.[2]

When Dolorous Edd is sent to assist in the garrison of Long Barrow, Jon selects Satin to be one of his new stewards. This angers several members of the Watch hierarchy such as Bowen Marsh, Septon Cellador, and Othell Yarwyck who feel that a former whore should not be the personal steward or squire of the commander.[6] [3]

Satin dances gracefully with three serving girls after the wedding of Alys Karstark to Sigorn, but does not displease Patrek of King's Mountain by approaching any highborn ladies in Selyse Baratheon's party.[7]


Whatever Satin may have done in Oldtown, he is our brother now, and he will be my squire.[6]
- Jon Snow to Bowen Marsh
