In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Lady Maege, also known as "the She-Bear", is a stout grey haired woman and a fierce warrior. She dresses in mail and her favored weapon is a spiked mace. According to her brother, she is stubborn, short-tempered, and willful. She worked hard to regain the family's noble name and recover from the state of near-poverty her nephew, Lord Jorah, had left behind.
Before going to the Red Wedding, Robb commands Maege and Galbart Glover to take men by longship and sail through the marshes of the Neck to seek out Howland Reed, thus they do not attend the Red Wedding. He gives them letters for the Northern lords, explaining the letters contain false orders, in case they are captured by the Ironborn. While it is not explicitly written, it is presumed Robb also gave Maege and Galbart the royal decree he issued, by which he legitimized Jon Snow and named him his successor.
It is unknown whether Maege and Galbart reached their destination, and if they actually have Robb's decree in their possession.
