Appearance and Character
A Dance with Dragons
Old Flint gives aid to King Stannis Baratheon when the king marches to the northern mountains and then defeats Asha Greyjoy in the fight by Deepwood Motte. His sons Donnel and Artos Flint join Stannis's march on Winterfell, but Torghen is too old to go himself.
Torghen later journeys to Castle Black to attend the wedding of Alys Karstark to Sigorn, the Magnar of Thenn. He enjoys the southern wine at the feast. Old Flint brings five fighting men and a wet nurse. Torghen and Brandon Norrey accompany Jon Snow to the top of the Wall; Torghen is wary of Jon's plan to settle free folk on the Gift.
