Coldhands doesn't appear much in the books, and he's all kinds of mysterious. But his job is to get Bran and Co to the Three-Eyed Crow, and the show handled that without including this weird fan favorite. So here he is in all his glory, with some Children of the Forest tagging along. Yes, in the books they are not described as filthy street urchins as portrayed in the show, but that is another post.
