House of CD4-Infected-But-Not-Infectious

4 fists with red virus inlayed

Not all CD4 cells fall prey to the White Walkers. While HIV can place its DNA into the genes of the CD4 cell, it does not necessarily mean it will make new virus! Sometimes the cell lives on with the new DNA, much like the character “Coldhands” in Game of Thrones. Coldhands is infected by the White Walkers, but does not become one of their servants. Instead, he lives on with a piece of the White Walkers inside of him. The implications of this are unknown at this time, which mirrors what is known about the cells described by this house! The blue, outstretched hands embedded with the red virus on the House of CD4-Infected, Not-Infectious Cells represent this.
