Gelmarr was an ironborn raider and a member of the Sea Bitch's crew. He took part in the seizing of Winterfell during the War of the Five Kings.

Gelmarr was present when Theon Greyjoy gave a speech encouraging his crew to resist the Northmen led by Ramsay Snow and to die a glorious death.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Gelmarr's background is the same. He's also known as "Gelmarr the Grim". Gelmarr took part in the raid of Stony Shore, the assault on Winterfell and the hunt for Bran and Rickon.

Gelmarr, alongside Aggar and Gynir Rednose, took part in the abduction and killing of the unnamed miller's sons, whose corpses were passed off as Bran's and Rickon's. Gelmarr also killed the kids' mother with one blow of his axe, as she cried to Theon for mercy.

The very night they returned from Acorn Water, Gelmarr allegedly tumbled down some steps and broke his back; Aggar and Gynir were also killed within the next days. Later it was revealed that the three were secretly killed by "Reek" (actually, Ramsay in disguise) at Theon's command, to prevent them from revealing the truth about the slain children; since Theon needed a scapegoat, he falsely accused Farlen of the killing and executed him.
