Appearance and Character
- See also: Images of Satin
Satin claims to be eighteen years old. He is attractive and has dark eyes, soft skin, a sweet voice, and black hair in curly ringlets. His archery skill is judged passable by Donal Noye.
Jon Snow cites that Satin is quick to learn, clever, fearless in a fight, and can partially read and write. He is a follower of the Faith of the Seven.
Satin received his name while working as a whore at the Oldtown brothel where he had been born and raised.
A Clash of Kings
The wandering crow Conwy brings Satin and other recruits from a dungeon near Gulltown to Castle Black. Before the great ranging, Jon Snow watches the new recruits being trained by Ser Endrew Tarth.
A Storm of Swords
Satin helps defend the King's Tower at Castle Black from the wildlings, fighting alongside Jon during the attack on Castle Black. He pisses himself when the horns are first blown. Satin proves to be a valuable asset to the defense of the castle, firing crossbow quarrels and pouring boiling oil on wildlings. Satin helps Jon set ablaze the stair at Castle Black, which kills a number of Thenns. Satin trains with Jon after the battle beneath the Wall, and he congratulates Jon after he is named Lord Commander of the Night's Watch.
A Feast for Crows
Satin tears off half a finger nail in archery practice using a longbow.
A Dance with Dragons
Satin grows a beard into which he combs perfume. He finishes his training and is appointed to be a steward. He goes with Jon to take his oath in the weirwood grove in the haunted forest. Satin had previously admitted to following the Seven.
When Dolorous Edd is sent to assist in the garrison of Long Barrow, Jon selects Satin to be one of his new stewards. This angers several members of the Watch hierarchy such as Bowen Marsh, Septon Cellador, and Othell Yarwyck, who feel that a former whore should not be the personal steward or squire of the commander.
After the wedding of Alys Karstark to Sigorn, Ser Malegorn of Redpool refuses to allow Satin to escort Selyse Florent to the wedding feast. Satin dances gracefully with three serving girls during the feast, but does not displease Patrek of King's Mountain by approaching any highborn ladies in Selyse Baratheon's party.
Satin prepares Jon's horse when the Lord Commander goes north of the wall to meet Tormund. The squire pours wine for Jon when he meets with his officers.
Quotes by Satin

Jon: The Wall will stop them. The Wall will stop them. The Wall defends itself.—Satin and Jon Snow

Jon: You have your gods and she has hers. Leave her be.—Satin and Jon Snow
Quotes about Satin
Satin, they called him, even in the wool and mail and boiled leather of the Night's Watch; the name he'd gotten in the brothel where he'd been born and raised. He was pretty as a girl with his dark eyes, soft skin, and raven's ringlets. Half a year at Castle Black had toughened up his hands, however, and Noye said he was passable with a crossbow. Whether he had the courage to face what was coming, though...—thoughts of Jon Snow
My lord, the boy's a whore... a... dare I say... a painted catamite from the brothels of Oldtown.
—Jon Snow to Bowen Marsh
