Bedwyck, by Nawia ©
|Title||Commander of Icemark|
Bedwyck, nicknamed Giant due to his short height, is an experienced ranger of the Night's Watch. He is well-respected by younger members.
Bedwyck is a "hair and a half" over five feet tall, and has streaks of grey in his hair, showing his age. He cannot read, but can write his own name on a good day.
Bedwyck is the son of a crofter. He was sent to the Wall for poaching, and has been a Night's Watch ranger for over a dozen years.
A Clash of Kings
Bedwyck is part of the Great Ranging beyond the Wall, led by Lord Commander Jeor Mormont. He is a scout under the command of Thoren Smallwood. Due to his small stature, agility, and excellent climbing ability, Bedwyck is used as a look-out by Lord Commander Mormont at Whitetree.
A Storm of Swords
Bedwyck survives the assault by the Others at the fight at the Fist, and makes his way to Craster's Keep with the other survivors. Bedwyck stays loyal to the Watch during the mutiny at Craster's Keep, and was one of the few survivors of the ranging to make it all the way back to Castle Black.
Bedwyck is part of the force that Bowen Marsh takes when he heads off to fight the Weeper at the Bridge of Skulls.
A Dance with Dragons
The new Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, Jon Snow, puts Bedwyck in command of the abandoned way-castle Icemark, and gives him a garrison of thirty men. Bedwyck's mission is to restore the way-castle, to allow patrols to move about, and put eyes on the wall for climbers.
