Beth Cassel by Capraiaso
|Born||In 288 AC or 289 AC, Winterfell|
Beth Cassel is a noblewoman of House Cassel and is the only surviving child of Ser Rodrik Cassel, Winterfell's master-at-arms.
Beth has curly hair.
Beth is raised at Winterfell with the Stark children. Though closer in age to Arya, she tends to hover around Sansa's more glamorous retinue.
A Game of Thrones
Beth is present during Septa Mordane's session of needlework with Princess Myrcella Baratheon at Winterfell. She participates in the conversation between Sansa Stark, Jeyne Poole and Arya Stark about Prince Joffrey Baratheon. Beth dreamily says that Joffrey will marry Sansa and she will be queen, but as the betrothal has not yet been announced, Sansa gently tells her not to make up stories.
A Clash of Kings
During the closing banquet of the harvest feast, Beth is seated at the main table beside her father, Ser Rodrik Cassel. After the dinner, she is invited to dance by Lord Wyman Manderly and Cley Cerwyn.
Beth is one of the prisoners at Winterfell when the castle is taken by Theon Greyjoy. Theon used her as a hostage when her father tries to take the fortress back, displaying her with a noose around her neck on the walls of the castle. Theon says she will hang if Rodrik attacks, or if his army still stands outside Winterfell by sunset. Rodrik is anguished but determined to attack. However, Ramsay Snow's treasonous attack on Rodrik prevents any harm coming to Beth from Theon. After Winterfell's sack by the men of House Bolton, Beth is taken to the Dreadfort.
A Feast for Crows
Beth remains a captive at the Dreadfort.
A Dance with Dragons
In Braavos, Arya Stark, blinded by the Faceless Men, goes by the name "Blind Beth", possibly because she knew Beth Cassel in Winterfell.
