Craving Peaches Posted January 15 Share Posted January 15 His daughters, and therefore wives, are gradually becoming more inbred as time goes by. I will assume that wife #1 was an unrelated women. Now the oldest women in the keep are grey haired and old so I think it's safe to say that wife #1 is amongst their number if she isn't already dead. Depending on when he had his first daughter she could also be that old. I will be generous and say that at least one of the daughters of the first wife is still of child bearing age. That means at best Craster is having children with someone who shares 50% of his genetics already. Daughters with this daughter will share ~75% of his genetics. And daughters with one of them will share even more and so on. It would reach the point where his daughters are so closely related to him that they cannot produce children together and so have no more sacrificial material for the Others, assuming Craster had lived that long.
