Wights are corpses reanimated by the Others (or White Walkers). When an Other kills a person, the person becomes a Wight. They have no purpose beyond serving the Others, and appear to possess only basic, animal intelligence.


Wights look like corpses, except they have vivid, bright blue eyes.


Wights are difficult to kill and must be burned. Because their organs and tissue are dead they do not die from wounds that would kill humans. They are a danger to the men of the Night's Watch.
