Brandon Stark is Eddard Stark's third oldest son, and second oldest legitimate son. He loves to climb and has explored the entirety of Winterfell.
While climbing around the castle grounds on the day before the King's party was to leave Winterfell, Bran came across Cersei Lannister and Jaime Lannister having sex. Jaime threw Bran from the window. Bran lay unconscious for days, with his direwolf howling under his window. During Bran's incapacity, a hired man came to Bran's room to kill him while he was still in his coma. Bran's mother, Catelyn Stark was in the room with him at the time, though the hired man declared she wasn't supposed to be there. As she struggled with the man to keep him from Bran, Bran's direwolf came in and killed the hired man. Bran appeared to have woken from his coma at the same moment that Sansa Stark's direwolf, Lady, was killed.
