Maidens of Myth Series : Atalanta, The Huntress
Born an Arcadian (in some accounts Boeotian) princess to the King Iasus, Atalanta was abandoned at her birth atop a mountain, as her father had long desired a son. It has been said that a she-bear had taken Atalanta in her care, raising and suckling the young girl from her youth. Growing up in the wilderness, Atalanta was able to hone her abilities as a huntress and skilled warrior and eventually took an oath of virginity to the goddess Artemis. Atalanta is most famously known as the heroine of the tale of the wild boar. When deprived of sacrificial offerings, Artemis unleashed the boar into the town of Calydonia and ravaged the city and its people with death and famine. Not long after a hunt was formed of famed heroes who were intent on bringing about the end of the boar. Atalanta was the one who dealt the killing blow to the boar and would be celebrated throughout the region for her bravery in the slaying of the beast.
Eventually reunited with her father, Atalanta came to realize that her father desperately wanted her to settle down with a husband. She agreed to one condition - that her husband be her equal in strength, speed, and intelligence. All the suitors failed to win against her speed in the footraces save one man named Hippomenes who advised the help of the goddess Aphrodite. By using golden apples to lure away Atalanta whenever she would gain an upper hand in the footraces, Hippomenes was cleverly able to trick the huntress. By this manner, Hippomenes was able to win the race and Atalanta’s hand in marriage. She would later bear his son named Parthenopeus. However, the pair would be turned into lions as a result of disrespect towards Zeus. As the belief at the time was that lions couldn’t mate within their own species, Hippomenes and Atalanta would never be able to remain together.

My top reasons for why the Skagosi might follow Rickon:
1. His brother. People don’t usually mention this, but the Skagosi are very traditional First Men and keep a lot of the savage old ways. It’s mentioned more than once in ADWD that the First Men gave human sacrifices to the Weirwoods as a part of the Pact. Bran will soon be able to speak whole messages through the ravens as used to be done. Imagine what the Skagosi will think once they learn that Rickon’s brother is a greenseer of the old gods they worship. He’s basically their god-king.
2. Rickon himself is a warg, has a savage direwolf, and is maybe wild enough to charm them in a “YOUR MEAT IS BLOODY TOUGH” sort of way.
3. One of the main reasons that the Mountain Clans decide to fight and go rescue “Arya” from Ramsay (tell me again how they wouldn’t do that for Sansa if they had the chance) is that they really have nothing to lose. Normally the young and the women would go to seek refuge in Winterfell’s winter town. That obviously isn’t option anymore. It’s either fight or freeze and starve to death in the mountains. Their numbers are comparatively small, probably 2500 men, maybe more with spearwives, but they would make great winter guerillas.
4. The Skagosi are basically in the same position, and no doubt there’s a kernel of truth in the stories of cannibalism. Rickon might actually be a meal ticket. They could (maybe rather forcefully if need be) hitch a rid with him and make a literal meal of the Stark’s enemies, rampaging their way south to wherever there is refuge. They get a shot at survival, and the gratitude of a legendary house to boot.
p.s. if by this time Arya is living out the Nymeria myth and heading south, she would make the perfect hands-on leader.
