1) What exactly are they?
The White Walkers are a totally different species, although not completely separate from that of men. George R.R. Martin referred to the race as “the Sidhe made of ice” in an email to his comic boot artist. The fact is that the White Walkers appear different on the page and onscreen. In the novel, they are not referred to as White Walkers. Rather they are known as “The Others” and are described as dangerous but beautiful, moving with elegance, poise and grace while adorning their gleaming shining crystal swords and deceptive camouflaging armor. However, on GOT they appear as gruesome, skeletal-looking creatures who wear either black armor or no armor at all.
