- The red wanderer should not be confused with the Red Comet
The red wanderer is one of the seven wanderers visible in the sky over the known world. Coloured red, it is associated with the Smith god by the Faith of the Seven. It therefore seems to be an analog to Mars.
Among the Free Folk, the red wanderer is known as the Thief. Supposedly when it is visible within the constellation of the Moonmaid, it is a good time for a man to steal a woman. The red wanderer was bright the night that Jon Snow captured Ygritte.
