Balon Greyjoy’s most youthful child and beneficiary, Theon, was embraced as a ward by Lord Eddard Stark after Balon’s abortive uprising.

Theon’s complicated and turbulent relationship with his family and captors is the focus of both the book and the television adaptation’s character arc.

Theon first appeared in A Game of Thrones in 1996. He later made appearances in A Clash of Kings (1998) and A Dance with Dragons (2011), where he is reintroduced as Ramsay Bolton’s tortured victim, “Reek.”

What happened to Theon Greyjoy?

Theon died. In the conflict between the living and the dead at Winterfell, Theon Greyjoy lost his life. At the time of his death, his age was uncertain.

Theon perished defending Bran Stark, also known as the Three-Eyed Raven, against the Night King, who wanted to destroy the entire world and all of its memories.

Theon had been a much-loved and much-hated man in the Northern community over the years.

Theon trained at arms with Ser Rodrik Cassel in Winterfell and studied with Maester Luwin alongside the Stark children, Robb, Jon, Sansa, Arya, Bran, and Rickon.

He was Robb’s close friend and pseudo-brother, having watched with pride as Robb ascended to the North’s throne after Ned was executed by King Joffrey Baratheon.

However, he soon betrayed Robb and joined forces with his father, Balon, to launch an invasion of the North and take control of Winterfell from Bran and Rickon Stark.

He claimed to have burned alive two young farm boys, identifying them as the Stark brothers, who had, in reality, escaped Theon’s grasp with the aid of a wildling called Osha and a man named Hodor.

Theon was left to be tortured into servitude by Ramsay Snow, the cold-blooded scoundrel of Roose Bolton after House Bolton eventually gained control of Winterfell.

Theon was castrated during this period and given the pet name “Reek.” Theon learned of Robb Stark’s passing at the Red Wedding from Ramsay.

Theon accomplished the incredible feat of changing his entire life. Grabbing Sansa’s hand and vaulting from Winterfell into a fluffy mound of snow was the beginning of it all.

After Sansa was coerced into marrying the cruel Ramsay, Reek attempted to atone for his profound betrayal of House Stark by assisting one of its daughters in escaping.

When Reek—once again Theon—came home to his sister Yara after finding refuge with the brave Brienne of Tarth, he learned that his uncle Euron Greyjoy had murdered their father in order to take control of the Iron Islands’ Salt Throne.

He then, at that point, pursued the choice to make a beeline for Winterfell to battle close by the Starks in the conflict with the Night King and his dead armed force.
