A Ghost of Someone Posted March 28, 2016 Share Posted March 28, 2016 10 minutes ago, thelittledragonthatcould said: The Dustins don't love the Starks, it is pretty clear that not only did Lady Dustin (and the Ryswells) send as few men with Robb as she could "… rode south with Robb Stark, fought beside him at the Whispering Wood and Riverrun, returned to the Iron Islands as his envoy to treat with your own father. Barrowton sent men with the Young Wolf as well. I gave him as few men as I dared, but I knew that I must needs give him some or risk the wroth of Winterfell." But she (and the Ryswells) also ignored the calls of help when Winterfell needed help The rest had left eight days past, six hundred men from Winterfell and the nearest holdfasts. Cley Cerwyn was bringing three hundred more to join them on the march, and Maester Luwin had sent ravens before them, summoning levies from White Harbor and the barrowlands and even the deep places inside the wolfswood. Now while men from the further away Manderly, Flint and Karstark lands there was no help from the Dustins and Ryswells. GRRM has given a clear indication why Lady Dustin will turn on the Boltons and it has nothing to do with a love of the Starks but hating Ramsay. The prospect of him one day ruling will force her (and the Ryswells) to abandon the good ship Bolton. She is also been in good staning with Roose, her former brother in law and I think she probably knew, what Lady Hornwood told Bran and Maester Luwin, that the Bastard of Bolton was amassing troops at the Dreadfort. She does not trust Ramsay and Roose, she knows about as good as anyone. When she touched Brandon's statue in the Crypt, it was all I needed to know that when push comes to shove, she will side with the Brandon's family over the Boltons.
