House Mormont Edit
House Mormont of Bear Island is an old, proud, and honorable house, one of the principal families sworn to House Stark of Winterfell. Their seat is at Bear Island, located in the Bay of Ice far to the north-west of Winterfell. Bear island is relatively poor and one of the least populated holds in the north, but what they lack in wealth and people, their woods make up for in game (animals). Their blazon/sigil is a black bear over a green wood and their motto is "Here We Stand". The current lord is Gared Mormont. House Mormont does not rule over a castle, instead they have a large timber keep and long hall surrounded by a large earthen dike and a heavy timber palisade.
