Game of Thrones
The Wildling Ygritte, is today’s countdown character. Ygritte is a 19 year old wildling girl, who encounters Jon Snow, when he and other men of the Night’s Watch, come across her and a group of ranging Wildlings.
Ygritte is sharp tongued and very witty, and she uses that wit to poke fun at Jon Snow on many occasions. During their continued time together, Ygritte continually teases Jon, and constantly repeats her famous line, “You know nothing Jon Snow”.
Ygritte is described as not an overly beautiful girl. She has a pug nose, crooked but white teeth, and her most striking feature, her vivid red hair. In the Wildling culture, red hair is considered extremely lucky, and they call people with red hair, Kissed by Fire.
After Jon Snow convinced Mance Rayder that he had turned his cloak on the Night’s Watch, he is sent with Ygritte and other Wildlings, to scout Castle Black. During their trek to the Wall, Jon and Ygritte fall in love, and Jon forsakes yet another of his vows, this one, to not be with a woman.
The last we see of Ygritte in season 3, she has had her heart broken by Jon, as he races off to Castle Black to warn his brothers in the Night’s Watch, that the Wildling army is coming to attack them very soon. She draws her bow taut, and fires two arrows into Jon’s shoulder and leg, as he speeds away.
