Lived in a small village not too terribly far from the Wall. She was a simple farmer’s daughter with the hopes and dreams of one day being whisked away by a handsome Stark (She was fond of the name Benjen, but any of them would do) and living in Winterfell where she would bear many little lordlings and little ladies and live happily ever after.
Unfortunately, while she was young Wildings raided the village and she was carried off as a captive and wife to a particularly savage and cruel man. She endured years of abuse and rape, resulting in two stillbirths and much misery. She was outcasted by the other women for being embarrassingly weak, both mentally and physically. She finally had a live birth, and her resolve strengthened. She decided she must remove herself and her daughter from this terrible situation, but she could not simply run away.
So, she toughened up, began fighting back when her husband tried to have his way with her, and bore her bruises as badges honor for having fought for herself for once. Some of the women wordlessly sensed her new found purpose, and helped to train her with a spear. After much training she engaged her husband in a fight for her freedom from him. It was clear he was going to win, but in his fury he smashed his own daughter’s head in. All of the pain and rage she felt exploded from her at once, and she brutally slew her husband. She cast away her old name and chose a new one, and was from then on respected by her tribe as a fearsome Spearwife and a mother who had suffered loss and not buckled.
She traveled to the Wall along with Mance Rayder and the other Free Folk and was stationed at Long Barrow with the Spearwives.
Since the great battle ended there has been a short time of peace, and being a Free Folk, she decided to take her leave the Wall. But she didn’t return north due to the ongoing threat of the Others, instead she headed south. She had heard tales of the great warrior Queen Daenerys, and thought she must see such a worthy woman for herself.
