Plenty of little men tried to put their swords through my heart. And there's plenty of little skeletons buried in the woods.
~ Tormund to Jon Snow.

Tormund, also known as Tormund Giantsbane is a major charcater in the ASOIAF novels, by George RR Martin, and the HBO series, Game of Thrones, based on the books. Tormund is a wildling leader and second in command to King-Beyond-the-Wall, Mance Rayder. Tormund is a sworn enemy of the Night's Watch and acts as a major antagonist to Jon Snow in seasons 3 and 4.

In season 5, however, Tormund becomes somewhat redeemed and acts as an anti-hero and surprise ally to Jon Snow.

He has four sons, Toregg, Torwynd, Dryn, and Dormund, and one daughter, Munda. He lost two sons during the Battle of Castle Black: Dormund was killed by Stannis Baratheon's general, Ser Richard Horpe, while Torwynd died of his wounds a few days later beyond the Wall, raising again as a wight and being slain personally by Tormund.

Tormund is portrayed by Norwegian actor Kristofer Hivju, who also played Kenge in The Lion Guard and Connor Rhodes in The Fate of Furious.

Game of Thrones

In Season 3, Tormund is one of the leading wildings who climbs the Wall. He then leads the wildings in trying to kill a horse breeder for the Night's Watch in order to steal his horses. When Jon Snow refuses to kill the man, Tormund deems him an enemy. In Season 4, Tormund, along with Styr and Ygritte, leads the assault on the Wall, during which he engages Alliser Thorne in a sword fight. After the battle ends, Tormund is wounded and taken prisoner. He is last seen telling Jon to cremate Ygritte's body in the forest, saying it's what she would have wanted.
