"You will be taking on his son Olyvar as your personal squire. He expects a knighthood in good time."
Catelyn Stark to Robb Stark[src]

Olyvar Frey was one of the many sons of Walder Frey, Lord of the Crossing, and was a squire to King Robb Stark.

Biography

Season 1

When Catelyn negotiates with Lord Frey to gain permission for Robb and his army to pass the Twins, one of Walder's demands is for his son Olyvar be made Robb's squire, and eventually be knighted. Robb accepts these terms.[1]

Season 7

Unless he died sometime during the War of the Five Kings, Olyvar is supposedly murdered, along with his other male family members, by Arya, as a payback for the Red Wedding.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Olyvar is the eighteenth son of Lord Walder overall and the fourth born to Lord Walder's sixth wife, Bethany Rosby. His three older brothers are Perwyn, Benfrey, Willamen, and his younger sister is Roslin. He is two years older than Robb, although he is very immature compared to Robb. He takes part in the Battle of the Whispering Wood.

When Robb breaks his marriage pact with House Frey, Olyvar wants to remain with him, but is forced by Ryman (Stevron's eldest son) to abandon Robb.

Olyvar, alongside his brother Perwyn and nephew Alesander, are kept in the dark about Lord Frey's plan to betray and kill Robb at the Red Wedding. Apparently it was suspected that the three of them were too loyal to Robb, and would try to warn him or even to defend him when the ambush commenced, so they are sent away from the Twins "on duty". Catelyn and Robb ask about the absence of those three Freys, but receive only evasive answers. Too late, as the massacre begins, Catelyn realizes the significance of their absence.
