"I know this maker's mark - this is Mikken's work."
―Eddard asks Arya about Needle.[src]

Mikken is a recurring background character in the first season. He is played uncredited by weapons master Boyd Rankin and debuts in the series premiere. Mikken is the blacksmith at Winterfell. At Jon's request, he forged the sword Needle for Arya.

BiographyEdit

Season 1Edit

Mikken is seen in the background when Bran is practicing archery while his brothers watch (particularly in the close-up shot of Rickon's laugh). Later Mikken assembles with the Winterfell household to receive King Robert Baratheon. He stands behind Maester Luwin.[1] Mikken forges the sword, Needle, for Jon Snow to give to his sister, Arya Stark.[2] Eddard Stark finds Arya with the sword and recognizes Mikken's maker's mark on it.[3]
