Styr is a tall, lean man, with no ears. He is clean shaven and bald, with grey eyes and a straight nose.[2] He rules with an iron fist and commands absolute loyalty from his men.[3] Styr wears bronze scale armor and a helm and wields a weirwood spear with an ornate bronze head.[4]


Mance Rayder had to defeat Styr three times before the Magnar agreed to support him as King-beyond-the-Wall.[5]

A Storm of Swords

When Rattleshirt brings Jon Snow to Mance Rayder, Jon thinks Styr is Mance, mistakenly calling him "Your Grace".[2]

As part of Mance's plan to breach the Wall, Styr, along with his co-commander Jarl and his men, is sent ahead to scale the Wall and take Castle Black by surprise from the rear. After scaling the wall, Jon, who is assigned to Styr's raiding party, betrays them at Queenscrown[6] and warns the Night's Watch of the coming attack.[7]

Styr and his men die in the attack on Castle Black. Caught in a trap while climbing the Wall, he is seen falling as a portion of the Wall collapses.[4]

A Feast for Crows

Styr's son, Sigorn, become the new Magnar of Thenn.[8]


Twenty-odd Thenns were still huddled together between the fires when the ice cracked from the heat, and the whole lower third of the stair broke off, along with several tons of ice. That was the last that Jon Snow saw of Styr, the Magnar of Thenn. The Wall defends itself.[4]
