Appearance and Character

See also: Images of Sigorn

Sigorn is said to look like his father Styr, albeit younger and shorter: lean, with grey eyes and a receding hairline that makes him look older than his years. He wears bronze greaves and a leather shirt sewn with bronze scales.[3] Sigorn wields a bronze sword.[4]

Sigorn and his people take pride in the fact that they are Thenns, who have lords and laws, unlike the other free folk.[4] Sigorn haltingly speaks the Common Tongue with a thick accent.[5]

A Dance with Dragons

Sigorn kneels before Stannis after passing through the Wall.[3] It is rumored at Castle Black that Stannis intends to give lands and castles to Sigorn and Rattleshirt.[3] Sigorn is reluctant to join the Night's Watch after the death of his father.[5] Iron Emmett advises Jon Snow, Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, to grant a castle to the new Magnar of Thenn.[7]

Jon eventually devises a plan to wed Sigorn to Alys Karstark, the current heir of Harrion Karstark, the rightful Lord of Karhold.[4] Alys has fled before a forced marriage arranged by her great-uncle, Arnolf Karstark, to his son, Cregan, in order to claim Karhold.[8] Alys believes that Karhold will yield to her and Sigorn's two hundred Thenns.[4]

During the wedding, which is performed at Castle Black by Melisandre, Sigorn leaps across a flaming ditch with his new bride.[4] Sigorn is initially reluctant to dance during the wedding feast, but he joins Alys after becoming inebriated from mulled wine.[4] Jon notes that despite his fierceness, Sigorn, the founder of House Thenn, is surprisingly tender with his new wife.[4]
