Roose Ryswell is a son of Lord Rodrik Ryswell and a member of House Ryswell.[1]

Appearance and Character

Roose and his brothers Roger and Rickard are said to be quarrelsome. They each take a horsehead of a different color for their sigil, the jape being that the Ryswells cannot even agree upon the color of their arms.[2]

Along with the rest of House Ryswell, Roose attends the wedding of Ramsay to "Arya Stark" (actually Jeyne Poole) in Winterfell. Lord Roose Bolton mentions to Theon Greyjoy that Roose Ryswell is his namesake.[2]

Roose sends scouts out the Hunter's Gate of Winterfell to locate the army of Stannis Baratheon in the wolfswood, but none have returned yet.[3]

Quotes

Hosteen: We should take the fight to Stannis and make an end to him.

Harwood: Leave the castle? Would you have us charge blindly into the snow?

Roose: To fight Lord Stannis we would first need to find him. Our scouts go out the Hunter's Gate, but of late, none of them return.[3]
