From A Wiki Of Ice And Fire:
(About the books)
Jon Snow is the bastard son of Eddard Stark, by a mother whose identity is a source of speculation. He was raised by his father alongside his true-born half-siblings, but joins the Night's Watch when he nears adulthood. He is constantly accompanied by his albino direwolf Ghost. At the beginning of A Game of Thrones, Jon is fourteen years old. He is one of the major POV Character in the books.

Jon was raised as Stark and Northmen and in many ways took to their values of honour and later on even when forced with horrendous decisions he stays morally correct and upright. Jon always had issues with his bastardy and at time feels alienated, he eventually chose to join the Night's Watch, where the circumstances of his birth were of little importance, however it also means he would have to leave all bonds of the past behind. For a long time he struggled with this but eventfully he honors his new vows and become fully committed to the Watch.

Jon has strong Stark-like features. He has a lean build and a long face, with dark brown hair and grey eyes.

From the 'Game Of Thrones' wiki:
(About the TV show)
Jon Snow is a major character in Game of Thrones. He is played by starring cast member Kit Harington and d├ębuts in the first episode of the first season. Jon Snow is the bastard son of the late Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell. Jon is a steward in the Night's Watch. Now serving on the Wall, Jon has found a place of acceptance where the circumstances of his birth are of little importance. Jon has a pet direwolf named Ghost. He wields the sword Longclaw, a gift from Jeor Mormont.

The identity of his mother is the source of much speculation. Eddard once told King Robert Baratheon that Jon's mother is a serving girl named Wylla, but refused to elaborate any further. Jon himself has no knowledge of his mother. Jon's presence at Winterfell is a source of friction between Eddard and his wife, Catelyn. Jon got on well with his half-siblings, particularly Robb and Arya.

Today is my brother Bill's birthday. Recently I loaned him my box set of the first season of 'Game Of Thrones' and he really took to it, proclaiming Jon Snow to be his favorite character.

So this is my birthday tip of the hat to him.


Happy birthday, Bill!
