Jon Snow is the bastard son of Lord Eddard Stark. His mother is unknown as Ned keeps all details about her secret. Jon was raised at Winterfell on an equal footing with Eddard's legitimate children. Jon's presence at Winterfell is a source of friction between Eddard and his wife, Catelyn, although Catelyn put aside her anger temporarily when the infant Jon became severely ill. His Direwolf is called Ghost.
