Old Nan has been a house-keeper and wet-nurse at Winterfell and servant to House Stark’s children for generations. Ancient and wrinkled, and nearly blind and bald, her first charge long ago was a child named Brandon Stark — though her mind is not clear on exactly which Brandon it was. Her two sons were killed during the siege of King’s Landing, and her grandson died fighting against Balon Greyjoy’s rebellion. Old Nan’s daughters moved on and married, and the only living kin she had left in Winterfell is the simple-minded stableboy, Hodor, who is either her grandson or great-grandson.
Old Nan was a fount of folk-tales and superstitions, filling the children’s ears with tales of monsters, old heroes, knaves, and others from the Age of Heroes. Most adults discounted her peasant-wisdom and folk-tales as quaint and superstitious, though. Old Nan was killed when Winterfell was sacked by Theon Greyjoy and his allies.
