The Lord of the Crossing

Craster is a Stark

Recommended Posts

He's a Targaryen. Think of it, we read many times that his daughters are his wives but never once do we see anything about a mother or any sisters. Because he lacks sisters, he went for the next best thing in Manual for Targaryen Breeders: A Guide for Blood Purity

He was so close to getting the ultimate wife after decades of bedwork, but the jealous crows killed him and stole his subjects(as in test subject but king's subject also works)

His son and daughter/wife Gilly are still alive, so the ancestry lives on through them. I doubt his story is done.

His part in the story, i.e. relevance to the story, GRRM is telling not the fate of his one son not to be sacrificed (who will end up inheriting Horn Hill I think)

There is something special about Craster's bloodline because the Others accepted his boys.  Many wildlings would gladly make that sacrifice to satisfy the Others and keep them away and yet the Others do not accept their sacrifice.  There would be no need for the wildlings to flee if they can keep the Others happy with the gift of an occasional baby boy.  So the baby's bloodline is clearly important.  The Others do not want just any male baby.

The Night's King was a Stark.  The female Other sought him out.  Why him in particular?  Because of his bloodline.  If the first white walkers were created from Stark stock, it would help explain why.  Only a Stark can be converted to a white walker.  The blood has to be compatible. 

 

I like this theory better than the one proposing Bloodraven as his father.  We never saw any signs of the albino trait in any of Craster's people.  He is more than likely a Stark.
