"Piss on Mance Rayder! And piss on the North! We're going as far south as south goes!"
―Stiv to Osha[src]

Stiv was a Night's Watch deserter who was killed while fleeing south of the Wall.



Stiv is a former member of the Night's Watch, who abandoned the Wall to live amongst the Free Folk.

Season 1

Stiv, Osha, and Wallen flee south of the Wall, apparently in fear of the return of the White Walkers. In the woods near Winterfell they stumble across Bran Stark and decide to steal his horse. Realizing his importance, they ponder taking him prisoner and returning him to Mance Rayder, the King-Beyond-the-Wall, for a reward, but decide against it. Robb Stark intervenes, and kills Wallen and disables Osha. Stiv holds a knife to Bran's throat, and despite Bran's protests not to, Robb lowers his sword as Stiv tells him to. However, Theon Greyjoy shoots him through the back with an arrow, killing him. Osha surrenders to Stark custody.[1]
