Ryger Rivers: "Father please..."
Walder Frey: "I need lessons in courtesy from you, bastard? Your mother would still be a milkmaid if I hadn't squirted you into her belly!"
Walder Frey to his bastard son[src]

Ryger Rivers was a bastard son of Lord Walder Frey, the head of House Frey and Lord of the Crossing.

Biography

Season 1

Ryger is present when Catelyn Stark visits Lord Walder Frey to negotiate passage for her son's army across the Trident. Like his trueborn half-brother, Stevron Frey, Ryger admonishes his father to remember his courtesies. Lord Frey rudely dismisses his son and reminds him that he's a bastard born of a milkmaid.[1]

Season 7

He is presumably poisoned by Arya Stark, in retaliation for the Red Wedding.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Ryger is a natural son of Lord Walder Frey and a woman who milked goats. He is described as being younger than Stevron Frey, who is 65 years old.

Catelyn's chapter in the first book, in which she enters the Twins to request that Lord Walder grant Robb's army passage over the river, is the only point that Ryger Rivers has appeared in the narrative so far. The dialogue in this scene matched the books fairly closely.
