Bear Island has received a summons for help from the Rangers of the North.
Lady Mormont is the leader of House Mormont - the rulers of Bear Island.
Will she answer the call to war?
Lady Mormont: House Mormont has kept faith with House Isildur for a
thousand years. We will not break faith today. We are not a large house, but we are a proud one... Everyone from
Bear Island fights with the strength of ten mainlanders.
He is a Braavosi swordsman and is the oldest of the Forel Master Instructors.
His younger brother Syrio is in Kings Landing.
The motto of House Mormont is "Here We Stand"
Masque de Ferrous is the master Bear Tamer on the island. This fellow has an iron mask permanently attached to his face. Some say the bear mascot of House Mormont might have played a bit too rough with this fellows face.
The assistant bear tamer in the center has a missing eye among his other scars. Still, they do their best to keep the mascot of House Mormont happy. Such devotion!
Jorelle the bear is rumored to be Lyanna's older sister who somehow got stuck permanently in werebear form.
So, the women of Bear Island are forced to learn how to fight against all manner of invaders: Wildlings, Ironborn raiders, Chaos Marauders, Dark Elf Slavers, Orc Pirates, Corsairs of Umbar, and dont forget the Bears that live on the island itself.
It even became a hit Broadway Musical across the sea in Essos.
According to ancient myths, the Sky Wolves came down in their sky-boats from their home - the fabled cloud city known as Fenris. These warriors have a saying, "there are no wolves on Fenris." Which makes no sense, or it makes all the sense. One thing is for sure... there are Bears on Bear Island.
So there you have a new unit to help out the alliance.
I have to make up their own rules to give them their own unique character.
They have 2 hand weapons so 2 attacks each.
WS of 4 like empire swordsmen.
But they also are Unbreakable! They will fight to the last man, or woman.
Which represents the fact that they might be few, but they are ferocious!
Next post we go back to showing off even more enemies... and answer the question as to why a Greenskin General was missing from the Battle of Longbottom.
Lyanna Mormont has an older sister and her name is Jorelle. When I made this post, I made that name up based on Lyanna's uncles names - Jeor and Jorah. Little did I know, in the books there really is a Jorelle. Im in synch with you GRRM! Other older sisters include Lyra, Alysane, and Dacey. Though Dacey seems to have died at the Red Wedding. Not that death means anything to the Game Of Thrones world, and especially means nothing to this blogs fluff. Resurrections are everyday things here, just like good ol' fashioned D&D meant them to be.
