Bastards are those children born illegitimately, out of wedlock to unwed parents. It is possible for bastards to go on to win high offices and acclaim, and to found new houses, but they generally have a hard life and have to prove themselves moreso than legitimate children.
Each of the constituent regions of Westeros has a different surname taken by bastards to identify their status. These are as follows:
- The North: 'Snow'
- The Iron Islands: 'Pyke'
- The Westerlands: 'Hill'
- The Riverlands: 'Rivers'
- The Vale: 'Stone'
- The Crownlands: 'Waters'
- The Reach: 'Flowers'
- The Stormlands: 'Storm'
- Dorne: 'Sand'
