The raiders or rock clans are clans who live in The Borderlands. They reject and resist the rule of House Blackgard and harass travelers along the main road through the mountains.

They are descendants of the First Men who originally occupied the Borderlands during the Age of Heroes and before. They were driven into the mountains by the Targaryen invaders.

The raiders are also sometimes derisively referred to as "wildlings", but out of context the term is usually understood to refer to the people living beyond the Wall, who refer to themselves as the "Free Folk".
