Theon: "Where is he?"
Myranda: "Who, my lord? There's no one here but you, me, and Violet."
Theon Greyjoy and Myranda[src]

Violet was a young woman in service to House Bolton at the Dreadfort, and a bedwarmer of Ramsay Snow.


Season 3

Violet and Myranda enter the torture cellar in which Theon is kept hostage, release him and put him on a bed. They then attempt to seduce him, claiming that they have heard the heir to Pyke is "well-endowed". Violet claims Myranda was in training to become a septa, but her sexual urges kept her from taking the vows. Theon is initially distrustful, but cannot help but grow aroused when Myranda, stripped of her clothes by Violet, straddles him.

Suddenly, the girls are interrupted by a horn sounded by Ramsay Snow, who approaches his two servants and taunts Theon, telling him he too has heard about Theon's manhood and showing him a gelding knife. Myranda and Violet then watch as Theon is held by two men, while Ramsay proceeds to geld him.[1]

Season 5

While bathing Sansa, Myranda reveals Ramsay grew tired of Violet and killed her after she became pregnant, which Ramsay found "boring."[2]

Behind the scenes

George R.R. Martin stated on the DVD commentary of "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" that he had written a scene involving Myranda and Violet for the fourth season. Stephanie Blacker was not available for the fourth season due to pregnancy. Since Martin wrote "The Lion and the Rose", this seems to suggest that the role played by Tansy in the episode was originally intended for Violet. Violet's in-universe fate might be a reference to Blacker's real-life reason for not returning.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the only character named Violet is an old peasant woman who used to visit Riverrun, looking for old shoes in need of new soles. She does not appear in the books, being only mentioned by Catelyn and Maester Vyman.

In the novels, Ramsay surrounds himself with a group of brutal thugs, referred to as the "Bastard's Boys", who take part in his mind games and tortures. However, there is no mention of any women in the group.
