A White Walker is a character in the fifth season. He was one of the Night King's lieutenants and one of the commanders of the growing wight army that marched on Hardhome, the last remaining wildling settlement.
During the attack on Hardhome, while Jon and Loboda search for a bag of dragon glass weapons inside a burning wildling hut, the White Walker gives chase, extinguishing the flames with his mere presence. Loboda tries to fight him to buy Jon time to retrieve the dragon glass but upon contact with the Walker's icy spear his axe shatters. Loboda is slain by the White Walker. Jon, though plainly outmatched, takes on the Walker until both combatants are astonished to find that Longclaw doesn't shatter but successfully counters the strike from the Walker's spear. Jon lands a blow on the White Walker, causing him to instantly shatter into a cloud of icy dust and fragments.
