3rd Level (Noble 2 / Night’s Watch Steward 1)
Sam Tarly is a young recruit in the Night’s Watch, hopelessly fat and easily frightened. Formerly from Horn Hill and onetime heir to House Tarly, Samwell is fond of music, songs, fine clothing, good food, books, kittens, dancing. He is afraid of blood and violence, and thus was not the heir his father wanted.
Lord Randyll tried to turn Sam into a more vigorous son, but gave up in favour of Sam’s younger brother, Dickon. On Samwell’s fifteenth name day, Randyll took his son out on a hunting trip and gave him a choice: be hunted, or take the black and forsake his inheritance.
At the Wall, Sam becomes fast friends with Jon Snow, who protects him from the japes and cruelty of the other boys and the master-at-arms, Ser Alliser Thorne. Bookish and well-read, he is clever and able to do math and accounting — rare skills at the Wall. After his training, Sam becomes a steward of the Night’s Watch, assistant to Maester Aemon and keeper of the library and rookery.
