Lord Roger Cray is a Crannogmen, the Lord of House Cray and bannerman to House Reed and House Stark of the North. He currently resides in Swamphorn, a village hidden in the swamps of The Neck and home to House Cray.
Roger Cray was born in Swamphorn, the village of House Cray, a northern house in The Neck. He was brought up isolated from outside contact until his 18th name day as is tradition for the Crannogmen of House Cray. Upon his 18th name day he was married to Marrissa of House Peat, a fellow Crannogmen house of The Neck and the two went on to have a legitimate son, Hareth Cray and adopt the abandoned Matthos Snow.
At some point in time, Roger Cray hung Matthos Snow's actual father for an unknown crime, in response Snow's mother fled Swamphorn and left a baby Matthos behind. For unspecified reasons, Roger decided to adopt the child himself and raise it as his own son and despite the boy knowing the truth, he still looks to Roger Cray and Marrissa Peat as his legitimate parents.
Despite being a Lord himself, Roger has stated that he has a general dislike for them, especially higher Lords, Kings and Queens. He claimed that he and House Cray only answer to Cregan Reed and Jojen Stark as they are his Liege Lords and as such he is honoured to serve them.
