Appearance and Character
Like his father Walder, Stevron resembles a weasel. He has grey eyes. A man in his sixties, Stevron's appearance shows his age. He was too old to ride in the tourney held at King's Landing in 297 AL. Walder has groomed Stevron for lordship of House Frey, though Walder often jokes that Stevron has been waiting for him to die for forty years. Through his father, Stevron has learned to place great importance on the family. Stevron, unlike his father, is amiable and reasonable.
A Game of Thrones
Stevron is sent to parley with the northern army when they arrive beneath the walls of the Twins. House Frey allies with Robb Stark in return for him agreeing to marry a daughter of Lord Walder Frey.
At Riverrun, a cautious Stevron suggests that the North and the Riverlands let Tywin Lannister and the Baratheon brothers, Stannis and Renly Baratheon, weaken themselves in fighting over the Iron Throne. Stevron offers to travel to Harrenhal to ransom the captured Jaime Lannister back to his father Tywin, but the Frey heir receives outrage in response. Instead, Robb is named King in the North by the collected bannermen.
A Clash of Kings
Stevron accompanies Robb in his southern campaign and personally leads the Frey soldiers into battle. He is wounded at the Battle of Oxcross. The wound is not thought serious, but three days later Stevron is found dead in his tent. He is succeeded as heir to the Twins by his first son, Ryman Frey. Robb often recalls how Stevron died bravely serving him.
A Storm of Swords
King Robb Stark marries Jeyne Westerling, breaking his promise to marry a Frey girl. On his return to Riverrun, Robb tells his mother Catelyn Tully that if Ser Stevron was alive he felt he could have made amends with the Freys over the broken marriage contract. However, the other Freys, bar Olyvar, are unreasonable.
During the Red Wedding, Catelyn offers to exchange Stevron's second son, Aegon Frey, a fool nicknamed Jinglebell, for the wounded Robb, saying, "I will spare your boy's life for Robb's. A son for a son." Lord Walder Frey, who has already lost his first son and heir, Stevron, replies, "A son for a son, heh. But that's a grandson ..." Roose Bolton kills Robb; Catelyn responds by slitting the throat of Aegon.
