Ser Walder Rivers is a natural son of Lord Walder Frey, and is often called Bastard Walder. Walder's personal coat of arms is a silver-grey castle on blue (the colors of House Frey reversed) beneath a red bend sinister.[1][2]

About

He is the eldest of Lord Walder's bastard children. He is gruff, dour, and has grey hair. Though not a trueborn Frey, he is often put in positions of responsibility for House Frey due to his strong reputation as a warrior. [3] His mother fell from a horse and died. [4] In the TV series he is played by Bryan McCaugherty.[5]

Recent Events

A Storm of Swords

Walder commands the escort of Lothar Frey on his trip south to Riverrun where Lothar is to treat with Robb Stark. Walder accompanies Lothar Frey on his meeting with Robb outside the gates of the Twins, but is much less friendly than his half-brother. During the Red Wedding, he commands the attack on the soldiers' camp.[6]

A Feast for Crows

Walder is present at the Second Siege of Riverrun, where he participates in the heated stalemate that plagues the besieging army's command. Jaime Lannister thinks that Walder Rivers is more dangerous than any of his trueborn brothers.

Quotes

That whoreson. Hates that he is a bastard, and hates everyone who's not. [7]

- Ser Daven Lannister


That one is more dangerous than any of his trueborn brothers. [1]
