Wenda the White Fawn
|Alias||Wenda the White Fawn|
Wenda the White Fawn was a famous member of the Kingswood Brotherhood. It is unknown if she was connected with House Cafferen of Fawnton, whose sigil includes white fawns.
Wenda was said to be young and fair.
Wenda branded her trademark, a fawn, on Merrett Frey, a squire captured by the Kingswood Brotherhood. Lord Sumner Crakehall ransomed Merrett back from her. Merrett was unable to sit for a fortnight. It is not clear what happened to Wenda when the outlaws were destroyed.
A Storm of Swords
While riding with Sandor Clegane, Arya Stark wonders if she should go back to Sharna's inn, where she could stay with Hot Pie or rejoin the brotherhood without banners. She briefly thinks of becoming an outlaw, like Wenda the White Fawn in the songs, but then thinks the idea is stupid.
On his way to pay the ransom for Petyr Frey, Merrett Frey recalls that Wenda burned a fawn into the cheek of his arse while he was her captive among the Kingswood Brotherhood.
A Dance with Dragons
During Alys Karstark's wedding celebrations, Jon Snow thinks that Ulmer of the Kingswood, an adept dancer, is regaling his partners with his tales of the Kingswood Brotherhood, when he rode with Simon Toyne and Big Belly Ben and helped Wenda burn her mark in the buttocks of her highborn captives.
No good ever came from dealing with outlaws. That vile little bitch Wenda had burned a fawn into the cheek of his arse while she had him captive.—thoughts of Merrett Frey
