The Lord of the Crossing Posted January 28, 2022 Share Posted January 28, 2022 (edited) I posted on this subject matter in 2016. My post has been archived and no longer available but here is a link to the discussion. The Night's King came from House Stark. The corpse queen, who I believe will be Arya in this iteration, carefully chose this one man to be her mate. Genetic compatibility is the reason. They had surviving offsprings and those are the ancestors of the White Walkers. The Starks, Craster, and the White Walkers share DNA. Moreover, Craster is a Stark. Allow me to post again, for those who cannot open the link to the 2016 thread: Quote 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.
