Legend tells that in the Age of Heroes the thirteenth Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch fell in love with a woman with skin as white as the moon and eyes like blue stars. He loved her though her skin was cold as ice, and when he gave his seed to her he gave her his soul as well. He brought her to the Nightfort and bound the brothers of the Night’s Watch to his will through sorcery. He declared himself “Night’s King" and ruled over the Wall and The Gift as his own. The King in the North and Joramun, the King-Beyond-the-Wall, joined forces to defeat him and his queen.
"Beyond the innocuously descriptive "moonflower" (the tubular flowers open by night) and "thorn apple," various sources identify it as "devil’s apple," "devil’s snare," "devil’s weed," "devil’s trumpet" (and "angel’s trumpet"), "mad apple," and "locoweed," among many others."
