so...where do female white walkers come from

52 posts in this topic

the only info we got on Others being made is from Craster's sons being converted, so that explains the male white walkers but what about the females



the night king loved a female walker, so we know at least one existed...




any ideas?

To OP:



We don't even know if there are female white walkers. We saw the Night's King on the show, and it's not like his bride was anywhere to be seen.

Ah, but I have a theory that they are not truly Others, only Otherized (or live-wighted) humans. They are between the worlds, just like Night's King. Sad, isn't it?

I think the Other women are at home doing the laundry and such female tasks. Someone has to make things comfortable for the menfolk. They're tired when they get back from rangings and need a place to get away from all the pressures of keeping watch for signs of encroaching humans.

yeah.... i'm not talking about the show though i'm talking about the books. the night king was known to love a female white walker. that love pissed alot of humans off, north and south of the wall, and had the king of winter and the king beyond the wall to unite against it

In The first book, the nights watch deserter comes across a bloody scene of dead wildlings in the forest. When he returns to show his brothers, the bodies are gone and the little girl that was nailed to a tree stands in front of him...already a ww.

We have seen only a few Others close up. They were male, but that's no reason to assume there aren't females. Maybe their society is gender biased too.



Also, Craster's sons are not necessarily made in Others. I think it more likely they are sacrifices for Other purposes. They are definitely not the origin of all male Others, which is just fucking ridiculous.

Maybe the actual Others are incorporeal and they use humans as vessels.

It's a good question. All the WWs are male, yet, The Lord Commander of the Night's Watch was a Stark, who according to Old Nan was seduced by a beautiful female White Walker he became the Night's King and she his Queen. He was also the brother of the King in the North who sacrificed his brothers in the NW to the Others. Also they had offspring.

So where did this single female come from? It might be another of Nan's morality lesson stories or it might be true.

Maybe it's a story like Lilith, Adam's first wife.

Could be. The Question is what is there antipathy towards CoF and humans?

Parthenogenesis.



And, if needed, they can change their genders.



That is the true.

That's show :bs:

Up until now, we have encountered actual Others twice. No more than that. Once a handful, once a single guy. In both cases armed, armored and out for trouble, not feeding children.

By the way, how do figure that these Others were all male?

We don't know that the group of Others in AGoT prologue were all male, although I think it would be at least noteworthy for Will that women Others fight with Men (or at least carry out executions and conversions). Still, as you say, there's no real way of knowing atm.

If he could identify them at all. Could you identify the gender of a species you have never seen? I couldn't, not even with cats or dogs, unless they give me the full frontal.
