Bonds of Blood and Honor
Ramsay is the natural son of Lord Roose Bolton known as the Bastard of Bolton or the Bastard of the Dreadfort. After his trueborn half-brother, Domeric, died of a “bad belly,” Roose brought him to the Dreadfort and treated him as heir- Ramsay considers himself a Bolton despite his birth. He has a fleshy appearance, with plump lips and long hair; he has the same unusual pale eyes as his lord father. Where Roose is cold and calculating, Ramsay is vicious and unpredictable, taking delight in torturing others. He is an avid practitioner of the Bolton’s custom of flaying enemies.
