House Stark

The sound of House Stark, also known as the “Wolf’s Howling”, is well known across all of Westeros (fig. a). It resembles the quick raising of a direwolf’s howling. The nature of the howl has no fixed duration for any notes, except perhaps the first one, which is shorter than the second.

There have been as many variations as there have been members of the Stark dynasty, so many, that to try and list them all would be foolish. For the moment we will concern ourselves with the current living members of the Stark family starting with Lord Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell, and Warden of the North (fig. b). It is said of Lord Eddard that he has the Stark look, with brown hair and grey eyes. Most people seem to find Lord Stark quiet and reserved, some might even say cold, but nobody doubts his honor.

Robb Stark is the heir of Winterfell, son of Lord Eddard’s son with Lady Catelyn Tully. On the surface doesn’t have much of the Stark look, favoring the Tully features of auburn hair and blue eyes. Nevertheless, Robb has his father’s sense of honor and justice that surely will surface in time as he grows to be a man.

Sansa Stark is the oldest daughter of Lord Eddard Stark and Lady Catelyn Tully. Like her brother Robb, she takes mostly after her mother, with auburn hair and blue eyes.

Arya Stark is said to resemble her late aunt Lyanna Stark not only in appearance but also in spirit, with brown hair and grey eyes and a thirst for adventure.

Bran Stark is much like his older brother Robb more Tully than Stark, with auburn hair and blue eyes. Bran is still a young boy but he has the makings of a knight, showing more courage than most men when could ever aspire to when he climbs the high walls of Winterfell with ease.

Jon Snow, the bastard son of Eddard Stark and an unknown woman, deserves mention as he is the only son of Eddard Stark to have the Stark look.
