Snow: Death favors no man. We must ride like thundering waves under the tattered battle flag of my father.
Duke: You must rest.
Snow: We have rested long enough. Frost to fire and fire to frost. Iron will melt. But it will writhe inside of itself! All these years, all I've known is darkness. But I have never seen a brighter light than when my eyes just opened. And I know that light burns in all of you! Those embers must turn to flame. Iron into sword. I will become your weapon!

Who will ride with me? Who will be my brother?
