Ryger Rivers: "Father please..."
Walder Frey: "I need lessons in courtesy from you, bastard? Your mother would still be a milkmaid if I hadn't squirted you into her belly!"
Walder Frey to his bastard son[src]

Ryger Rivers was a bastard son of Lord Walder Frey, the head of House Frey and Lord of the Crossing.

Biography

Season 1

Ryger is present when Catelyn Stark visits Lord Walder Frey to negotiate passage for her son's army across the Trident. Like his trueborn half-brother, Stevron Frey, Ryger admonishes his father to remember his courtesies. Lord Frey rudely dismisses his son and reminds him that he's a bastard born of a milkmaid.[1]

Season 7

He is presumably poisoned by Arya Stark, in retaliation for the Red Wedding.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Ryger is a natural son of Lord Walder Frey and a woman who milked goats. He is described as being younger than Stevron Frey, who is 65 years old.

Ryger appears on-screen only in one book scene - when Catelyn enters the Twins to request that Lord Walder grants Robb's army passage over the river. The dialogue in this scene matches the parallel show scene fairly closely.
