Baelik Mormont is a First Ranger of the Night's Watch stationed at Castle Black. It is said that he has killed a giant, though the tale behind the deed is not known. Baelik is a follower of the Old Gods.
Baelik is sent beyond the wall in search of wildlings with three other rangers by Lord Commander Rheagar II Targaryen. He and the three others discover a weirwood tree sapling, and return to the Wall with the belief that the Children of the Forest have returned.
