Il lui donna son corps et son âme. Le Roi de la Nuit commande une armée de morts vivants. Il peut entre autre ressucitter les morts et transformer les enfants d'un simple touché. According to legend, the Night's King lived during the Age of Heroes, not long after the Wall was completed. He was the thirteenth Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. Later, he fell in love with a woman "with skin as white as the moon and eyes like blue stars". He chased her and loved her though "her skin was cold as ice", and when he gave his seed to her he gave his soul as well.
