Coldhands is the mysterious figure from beyond the Wall.
A Storm of Swords
He saved Samwell Tarly, Gilly and her son when they were beset by wights and were lost north of the Wall. Though he could not pass through it himself, he lead them to the Black Gate which passes underneath the Wall into the well of the Nightfort's kitchens.
His hands are black and as cold as ice, and he rides an elk. A flock of ravens flies under his command.
