Additional information
House Dustin of Barrowton is a noble house from the North. Their seat Barrow Hall was built upon the Great Barrow, surrounded by the town of Barrowton. The Great Barrow overlooks the flat and windswept barrowlands, and is said to be the resting place of the First King of the First Men. The Dustins claim descent from this First King of the First Men and the Barrow Kings of the barrowlands, which they honour with the inclusion of a rusted crown in their sigil.

During the Dance of the Dragons, House Dustin supported the claim of Rhaenyra Targaryen. Lord Roderick Dustin, known as Roddy the Ruin, led 2,000 northmen south of the Neck to aid the blacks.

The so-called grizzled Winter Wolves rode shaggy northern horses and used axes, mauls, spiked maces, and ancient iron swords. They led the attack and charged the Lannister spearmen five times in the Battle by the Lakeshore, with two thirds of the northmen killed or wounded in their victory. In the Butcher's Ball, Lord Dustin sounded the charge of the northmen and their river knight allies against Ser Criston Cole, the Kingmaker, who was slain in the subsequent battle.

Screaming northern war cries, the surviving Winter Wolves rode from a postern gate in the First Battle of Tumbleton. Although outnumbered ten to one, Roderick led the northmen to strike at Lord Ormund Hightower. Roddy the Ruin managed to slay Lord Ormund and Ser Bryndon Hightower before succumbing to his wounds.
