Win or Die
House Whitefyre of King's Landing
When Ashter and Isaura Stark and their friends, Galena Mormont and her husband Jost, arrived in King’s Landing to warn King Otto that the Starks would be joining in Daemon Blackfyre’s rebellion, they had no idea that their father’s actions would lead to the destruction of their family. They imagined that at any moment Cregan would see the error of his ways and throw their House’s support behind the king. However, Cregan remained with Blackfyre’s forces until their defeat and, although he allowed himself to be executed for treason, the rest of the family still exists in a state of rebellion wherever they are hiding.
After Cregan’s execution, King Otto kindly gave permission for Ashter and Isaura to distance themselves from their family’s tainted legacy, and to become a new minor house in their own right. They chose the name Whitefyre to represent the snows of the north, their zealous loyalty, and to serve as a constant reminder of the events that had led to the Starks’ downfall. Although their sigil is reminiscent of the Stark direwolf, the House Whitefyre cerberus is a much more loyal guardian, one who is aware of the importance of the past, the present, and the future.
Ashter has been named Lord Commander of the King’s Guard which brings much honor to this new minor house. Isaura continues to live in the castle in King’s Landing, hoping to find a way to truly establish her house.
