"Aggar and Gelmarr! Wex and Urzen! Stygg and Black Lorren!"
Theon lists his comrades[src]

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


Season 2

Urzen 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]

After handing Theon over, Urzen and the other ironborn are flayed alive by Ramsay Snow and the soldiers of House Bolton.[2]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Urzen's background is the same. He is among the ironborn who raid the Stony Shore and part of the force that captures Winterfell.

As Theon's position becomes hopeless, he tells the ironborn they can leave and join his sister's troops at Deepwood Motte or stay and fight with him against the Northmen, who will arrive soon to retake Winterfell. Urzen is among those who choose to leave.

Urzen is not mentioned in the books afterwards.
