House Mormont of Bear Island is a noble 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 northwest 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: a bastard sword called Longclaw. However, due to Bear Island's lack of valuable resources, the Mormonts are a rather poor house. 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.
