Ty has greasy black hair that falls down his back in a tangled rope.
A Dance with Dragons
When Ty and Dannel search for wildlings along the kingsroad, they find Alys Karstark, who seeks Jon Snow. Ty brings the girl to Clydas for treatment. When Cregan Karstark searches for Alys with a small group of men, one is killed by the Night's Watch after shooting a crossbow quarrel at Ty.
Ty stands sentry at the top of the Wall alongside Owen the Oaf when Jon, Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, arrives upon the elevator with Leathers for a meeting with other officers of the Night's Watch.
Behind the Scenes
Ty and Dannel may be references to Ty Franck and Daniel Abraham, friends and collaborators of George R. R. Martin, Ty being Martin's personal assisant at the time of the publication of A Dance with Dragons in 2011.
