All of the Noble Houses of Westeros celebrate their own Lore- stories of heroic deeds by ancestors whose names are well-known not only by their descendants and vassals to their House but by nearly all Great and Noble Families throughout Westeros, as well as the smallfolk of The Realm. That is to say, all Noble Houses celebrate their Lore except House Mormont of the exceptionally boring Bear Island; a House which seems to have no Lore whatsoever.
Bear Island is special and it stands out from the rest of Westeros because it is the most boring place to live in The Seven Kingdoms. Just ask the previous two Lords of Bear Island... if you can find them! They both abandoned their seat for certain death. John and SeannieWan open a series on a character that may just be their favorite non-POV character- Ser Jorah Mormont, the exiled Lord of Bear Island. If anybody has been put through the ringer more times than Tyrion Lannister, it is his good buddy, Ser Jorah... Captain Friendzone!
