House Velaryon is an ancient and proud house, with the blood of Old Valyria in its veins. They have ruled the island of Driftmark. the largest island in Blackwater Bay for centuries - since Aegon's Conquest. As a result, they have always been a close ally and loyal friend to House Targaryen. They are sworn to Dragonstone and King's Landing.
The head of House Velaryon is titled Lord of the Tides and Master of Driftmark. Their arms depict a silver seahorse on a field of sea green. Their words are "The Old, the True, the Brave."
Driftmark is located in Blackwater Bay and is the largest island in the vicinity. It is directly west of Dragonstone and north-east of King's Landing. The Gullet separates Driftmark from Massey's Hook to the south.
There are at least two heavily populated settlements on Driftmark. The first, High Tide, is home to the Velaryon family themselves. Hull is a small town situated on the island.
Spicetown was a port town on the island but during the Dance of Dragons it was sacked, the populace was butchered and the buildings burnt to the ground. Spicetown was so badly destroyed, that it has yet to been rebuilt. Instead, a ruined relic of destruction remains in its a place.
