Ser Walder Rivers, also known as Bastard Walder, is a knight and the eldest of Lord Walder Frey's bastards. He is married to a lady of House Charlton and has two children, Walda and Aemon. Walder's personal coat of arms is a silver-grey castle on blue (the colors of House Frey reversed) beneath a red bend sinister. Tim Plester portrays "Black Walder Rivers", a combination of Walder Rivers and Black Walder Frey, in the television adaptation Game of Thrones.
Appearance and Character
Walder is gruff, dour, and has grey hair. Though not a trueborn Frey, he is often put in positions of responsibility due to his strong reputation as a warrior. He is resentful of his bastard status.
Walder's mother died after falling from a horse.
A Storm of Swords
Walder commands the escort of Lothar Frey on his trip south to Riverrun where Lothar is to treat with Robb Stark. Walder accompanies Lothar on his meeting with Robb outside the gates of the Twins, but is much less friendly than his half-brother. During the Red Wedding, he commands the attack on the soldiers' camp.
A Feast for Crows
Walder is present at the siege of Riverrun, where he has a modest tent. He participates in the heated stalemate that plagues the besieging army's command. Walder informs Ser Jaime Lannister that Ser Ryman Frey was hanged by outlaws near Fairmarket and that Ser Raynald Westerling is presumed dead from the Red Wedding.
