“Grey Wind was restless too,” Robb said. His auburn hair had grown shaggy and unkempt, and a reddish stubble covered his jaw, making him look older than his fifteen years. “Sometimes I think they know things ... sense things ....”
Grey Wind was first of the direwolf pups found by Robb Stark, and the pup bonded immediately with the boy. Robb named him Grey Wind because he ran like the wind. Of all of the direwolves, Grey Wind is perhaps the greatest fighter, sitting at Robb’s side and ready to defend him in a heartbeat.
Grey Wind is Robb’s constant companion. While Ghost will roam and hunt for long stretches, Grey Wind is like a loyal escort who rarely leaves his lord’s presence. Shaggy Dog may be more ferocious, but Grey Wind quickly becomes more familiar with the way men fight. Grey Wind is accustomed to horses and war-craft, and fights fiercely alongside Robb on the battlefield — much to the dismay of the Lannister armies.
