House MORmont - an old, proud, and honorable house of the north, one of the principal families sworn to House Stark. Their seat is at Bear Island, located in the Bay of Ice far to the north-west of Winterfell. Their blazon is a black bear over a green wood and their motto is "Here We Stand". House MORmont is one of the few houses to have an ancestral weapon of Valyrian steel: Longclaw. However, due to Bear Island's lack of valuable resources, the MORmonts are a rather poor house.
