House Mormont
House Mormont
is a medium sized house that dominates the island of Bear Island within the Kingdom of Lucerne's most eastern borders. However, due to Bear Island's lack of valuable resources, the Mormonts are a rather poor house. Their hall is built in the only town of Bear Island in the form of Bear Hill, and their Hall is made of huge logs, surrounded by an earthen palisade. On the gate is a carving of a woman in a bearskin with a child in one arm suckling at her breast and a battleaxe in the other. Like the other women of Bear Island, the women of House Mormont learn how to defend themselves from ironmen and wildlings. House Mormont is the vassal of House Starke, and controls the small province of Bear Island.

Their blazon is a a black bear over a green wood simbolizing their traditional home of Bear Island and its roots with the bears of the island. The motto of House Mormont is "Here We Stand".

House Mormont's, and Bear Islands mordern legends state that when the Starke's came to the land they besieged an ancient evil on Bear Island and rid the island of its previous monsters and as a token of friendship they gave control of the island to House Mormont one of the sworn houses of House Amber. House Mormont would eke out a rough living on Bear Island as the island had little resources outside of lumber, and their main export soon became the people of the island who gained a reputation for being tough fighters. House Mormont grew a little more under Maege Mormont as she worked heavily alongside the new regime of WIlliam Lovie III. and put House Mormont in control of a large foundary to produce axes, and hammers for the Kingdom. House Mormont would be accompanied into the Invasion of Westbridge by a large force from Bear Island with forces of House Beartron, House Woodfoot, and House Bearmant making up the bulk of their other forces and the Bear Island forces were quite succesful during the invasion. Following the beggining of the Bolten-Lucerne War it was House Mormont, and the inhabitents of Bear Island would come under heavy assault from the Hill tribes of Northern Anthor, and Hentwood of whom were assisted by the Yairns to their east.

Fall of Jorah Mormont

Jorah Mormont Cover
Everything can change in an instant my sweet daughters, you must never forget that. Your cousin was a good man, and yet in a moment he made a choice that seemed easier then the right choice. He paid for his mistakes, and so do all that take the easy way out.
Maege Mormont

Following the marriage of Jorah, and Lynesse the calm lands of Bear Island became the site of darker things, as their marriage collapsed. Although both had married for love, the marriage did not remain happy for long. Having spent her life up to that point as part of a wealthy family in the mild, prosperous and densely populated lands of House Mountain, Lynesse was unprepared for life on the harsh and isolated Bear Island and quickly grew miserable. Jorah attempted to reproduce the lifestyle his wife was accustomed to by lavishing her with expensive gifts, but only succeeded in driving himself into financial ruin. Desperate to pay off his debts, he resorted to breaking one of the Kingdom of Lucerne's oldest taboos: participating in the slave trade. Jorah attempted to stay under the radar of his overlords by taking slaves from the Rhunian region of Gondor, and the independant islands of the Rhine, but as the quantity increased it caused stirs, and he couldn't hide it from his aunt anymore. She would finally discover the truth when Dacey followed him to a meeting with several Pontian traders that were visiting the island to find out when to expect more slaves, and Dacey would overhear her older cousin talking of his next slave run.

Jorah you have to tell the truth. Don't you remember how many times you told me that honor was the one thing they could never take away from you. Don't let that selfish women take everything from you.
Dacey Mormont

Maege Mormont would attempt to get Jorah to turn himself in, but so desperate to keep Lynesse he would be unwilling to listen to reason, and neither his young cousins Dacey, or Alysanne were able to convinse him. With Jorah unwilling to turn himself in it would be Maege, Dacey, and Alysanne that went to Winterfell and met with Eddard Starke, of whom they told the entire happenings to. When House Mormont's overlord, Eddard Stark, learned that Ser Jorah had sold slaves to slavers from Pontus Eddard condemned Jorah to the traditional penalty: death. As he sat in jail, he was able to overpower a gaurd and broke out and free of the prison Jorah fled with Lynesse to Pontus, where he attempted to make his living as a sellsword. With the relationship already strained by their exile and Jorah still unable to afford the lifestyle his wife desired, Lynesse finally left him while he was fighting on the fields of Dragonstone.

I was never meant to rule. I was always meant to fight, and ruling took away vital moments I could have been doing things I was born to do.
Maege Mormont

With Joer Mormont lost in the north as the Lord Commander of the Nights Watch, and the sole remaining male now exiled from Bear Island and the Kingdom of Lucerne it was the decision of Eddard Starke that Maege Mormont should become the new Lord of House Mormont, and thus she was made the Grand Lord of House Mormont, and Bear Island. In control of the island she relied heavily on her young daughters to provide her with assistence as she had little skill in such matters, and she was horribly angry all the time that Jorah had betrayed the family, and also that he had escaped under her watch.

I did all this so that you would be stopped. You're misery needed to end. We have done to much to escape this.
Dacey Mormont Large
Our new king has given us a great responsibility in moving against the Druids. We must not fail him.
Eddard Starke

The Druids of the Hearth had become increasingly aggressive following their corruption by the Hearth Druids but this aggression had been managed by James Lovie II. by allowing the Druids to raid into Lucernian areas in return for the druids giving the crown some slaves and avoiding sparking a larger conflict. The aggressive nature had also been managed by the work of the Druid of the Blessed Antler in the form of Idrena of whom as a part of her plan to kill her father she had taken control of much of the inner workings of the Druids and in this control she had nutured much of the violence that Wudis had tried to drive them towards. The peace would be shattered though when William Lovie III. took control of the Kingdom of Lucerne following the events of the Journey and one of the first major things he did was put an end what had become widespread slavery in the Valley of Lucerne and this also included the end of allowable raiding from the Druids of the Hearth. Following the end of the allowed raiding it was William Lovie III. and the Druids who made arrangements to meet and discuss future relations and this would be planned for when he was coming to the area to celebrate the founding of the town of Eastfall or the Port of Stormwind, and this planned meeting was put under the control of Idrena who was prepared to make sure that William saw through the secrets and lies of Wudis and would declare war against the Druids.

True Power

Idrena shows her power when after agreeing to meet with Eddard Starke she asks him to take her hand and then when he agrees she pulls him into a sort of dream like version of the world. Taking Jon through this world she is able to move at speeds that make Jon believe he is dreaming, but after minutes she has taken them too outside the town of Neuswil where the army of Eddard Starke has camped, and then with nothing but a short series of words she pulls them out of the dream world and back to reality. Jon is panicked once he realizes he has basically teleported across the land he is helped by Idrena of whom explains to him what happened detailing the fade to him in a detail that non-Titans simply don't have. Calming down the two share a kiss, which gets heated but stops when Idrena tells him that a group is coming on them, and before Jon can realize how much he liked kissing Idrena he sees his fathers Minister of Magi Robin Honigsman and a large group of Starke men coming up the hill on them.

Following the speech by Idrena it was Brus Ecrowi the son of Pen would take control of much of the Hearth Druid army on the eve of the battle and turned them to the side of Idrena leading to much of the remaining druid army to surrender while the rest led by Pen launched a suicidal charge on the vastly superior armies.
