Samwell Tarly is the elder son of Lord Randyll Tarly. Fat, timid, and unsure of himself, he is nonetheless intelligent and thoughtful. He is a Brother of the Night's Watch and steward of Maester Aemon.

Initially bullied by the other Night's Watch recruits and taunted by their trainer, Ser Alliser Thorne, for his cowardice, Sam was befriended by Jon Snow, who was instrumental in having Sam made Maester Aemon's steward. While beyond The Wall with the Lord Commander Mormont, Sam slew an Other, discovering their susceptibility to dragonglass, for which he was nicknamed "Sam the Slayer." He was instrumental in the selection of Jon Snow as the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, cleverly manipulating the other candidates for the Lord Commander's post so that they all supported Jon Snow against Janos Slynt. At Jon's command, Sam traveled to the Citadel, with Maester Aemon and the wildling Gilly, to train as a maester.

While at sea, Sam began a relationship with Gilly, but was ashamed of his feelings for her; His oath to the Night's Watch required him to never marry or have children. He planned to take Gilly and her son to his father's seat at Horn Hill where she and her baby would be safe. At Maester Aemon's command, he tried to get a maester sent to Daenerys Targaryen; upon hearing Sam's tale, Archmaester Marwyn set off to find her. Sam agreed to stay at the Citadel and train to be a maester, after which he would return to serve at the Wall.
