After capturing Winterfell, Ramsay had the heart to torture Theon Greyjoy until he became insane. He was the reason why Theon was unable to have offspring after his genitals had been cut off by Ramsay. For the sake of eliminating competition, the child of Roose Bolton had the heart to kill his stepsister who was still a baby. Sansa Stark, also a victim of rape and violence by Ramsay.
