Styr is the Magnar of the Thenn, a fierce tribe of Free Folk known for their rehearse of ritual self-scarification and absorb in cannibalism of their fall enemies. Styr is a very highly-skilled warrior and is capable of wielding a great axe with facilitate due to his size and military capability. At some luff, Mance Rayder convinced Styr to join his army and acknowledge him as the King-Beyond-the-Wall. Styr became one of Mance ‘s lieutenants, along chieftains such as Tormund and the Lord of Bones .
Styr leads a group of Thenns towards Castle Black and encounters Tormund and Ygritte after the warg in his group sees them through the eyes of his owl.

In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Styr is one of Mance Rayder ‘s lieutenants and the Magnar – “ Lord ” in the Old Tongue of the First Men – of the Thenn people, a kin of Free Folk established in a valley union of the Frostfangs. Unlike the early wildling clans, the Thenn actually have lords ( more like familial chieftains ), and live under established laws that they enforce. As a result they are the most disciplined of the wildling clans, making them organized and dangerous in battle ; they besides possess the most promote armor and weaponry among the Free Folk. The Magnar ‘s followers worship the man like a idol, and follow every rate, however farcical. In the series, much of his plotline from A Storm of Swords is taken by Tormund – including being mistaken by Jon Snow for Mance, and leading the climb over the Wall. He is described as a grandiloquent lean serviceman with no ears, clean plane, bald with a straight nose and grey eyes. He does n’t speak the Common Tongue, speaking only the Old Tongue.
Styr is besides not a cannibal, and does n’t possess scars on his head. Styr is not killed by Jon in personal fight. During the Battle of Castle Black he leads the majority of the Thenns to mount the step and advertise back the crumble defense, killing some of the brothers and villagers. Because Jon warned the Watch of their border on, the garrison knew they were coming and sprung a bunker : the step, soaked in oil between the last Watch line of defense and the basis of the structure, is set ablaze, destroying the step and killing Styr and most of his men. Styr is succeeded by his son Sigorn as the Magnar of Thenn. Sigorn late marries Alys Karstark, an agreement by Jon Snow, with the purpose of founding House Thenn .
