House Forrester is a noble house from the wolfswood in the north. It is sworn to House Glover of Deepwood Motte.[1] House Forrester is featured in the Telltale games. As of yet, no members of House Forrester have appeared in A Song of Ice and Fire.

The Forresters are featured in Game of Thrones - A Telltale Games Series by Telltale Games. Their seat is Ironrath, and their words are "Iron from Ice". They control the majority of the ironwood forests in the wolfswood, much to the chagrin of their bitter rivals, House Whitehill.[2] The head of the house is Rodrik Forrester or Asher Forrester, depending on the player's choice.[3]

In the video game, players assume the role of five different members of House Forrester, including both family members and people in service to the house, as the members of House Forrester try to prevent the house from meeting its doom.[2][4]

Known members of House Forrester

The following members of House Forrester appear in Game of Thrones - A Telltale Games Series:

Gregor Forrester

Lord Gregor Forrester (voiced by Robin Atkin Downes), also known as the Good, is the son of the late Lord Thorren Forrester, and the head of House Forrester at the start of the series. He and his wife, Lady Elissa Branfield, have six children: Rodrik, Asher, Mira, Ethan, Talia, and Ryon. A squire to Galbart Glover in his youth, Gregor became fast friends with Duncan Tuttle, and named his friend castellan upon inheriting Ironrath. Gregor is present at the Twins during the Red Wedding, where he is killed.[3] His body is later returned to Ironrath.[5]

Lord Rodrik Forrester (voiced by Russ Bain), also known as Rodrik the Ruin, is the first-born son and heir of Lord Gregor. He has a prominent military background.

He is betrothed to Elaena Glenmore. In the Telltale games, he is one of the main playable characters.

Asher Forrester

Asher (voiced by Alex Jordan) is the second-born son of Lord Gregor. A very rebellious youth, Asher committed actions such as drinking and whoring which made him acquire his father's disapproval. He fell in love with Gwyn Whitehill, and their love brought bloodshed to both House Forrester and House Whitehill. In order to prevent the situation from getting worse his father sent him to exile in Essos, in order to maintain the peace between the two houses. Asher is now living as a sellsword in Essos, and befriended a former slave fighter Beskha. They became partners in the mercenary trade, and have stayed by each other's sides, getting close enough to call one another sister and brother, respectively. In the Telltale games, he is one of the main playable characters.

Ethan Forrester (voiced by Christopher Nelson) is the third son of Lord Gregor Forrester and Lady Elissa Branfield. Ethan is the twin brother of Talia Forrester, and becomes the Lord of the House after his father, Gregor, and elder brother, Rodrik, are thought to be murdered at the Twins.

In the Telltale games, he is one of the main playable characters.

Historical Forresters

  • Lord Gerhard Forrester, also known as the Tall, the founder of House Forrester.[3]
  • Lord Cedric Forrester, who, with his sons, built Ironrath, the seat of their House, some fifteen hundred years ago.[2]
    • His triplet sons.
  • Lord Thorren Forrester, also known as the Bold, former Lord of Ironrath and the father of Lord Gregor Forrester, who was killed at the Battle of the Trident during Robert's Rebellion.[3]


According to Telltale Games, "the Forresters are seated at Ironrath, an imposing stronghold surrounded by towering ironwood trees. Built over fifteen hundred years ago by Cedric Forrester and his triplet sons, Ironrath is a testament to the strength and endurance of ironwood. Ironrath sits on the edge of the largest ironwood forest in Westeros, which has proven to be a strategic advantage for the House."[2]

Ironrath is the seat of House Forrester of the North in the graphic adventure game. It is located in the northern wolfswood in the foothills of the northern mountains, between Deepwood Motte and Winterfell. As of the story's beginning, its castellan is Duncan Tuttle, acting on behalf of Lord Gregor Forrester.[3]
