Overview

House Mowbray is a long time vassal of House Ruxton. The family has long had a history of twins, often identical. It is said that one such set of twins so distinguished themselves in battle that they were awarded land to tend and noble title. Some stories have one of the twins dying in battle, where others have both twins ruling the newly formed House until their death. The true story is probably lost to history, either way House Mowbray has had a long history of proving themselves in battle generation after generation.

History & Culture

House Mowbray has always sent at least one son off to train to be part of the illustrious Rioga… at least until the current generation. Whether the current generation will continue the trend or not, is a question that can only be answered by the current Baron.

Mowbray has always held a great loyalty to both Mobrin, and House Ruxton. Outside of the main line of the family, knights have also risen up from the common tenants on Mowbray land.

The lands granted to House Mowbray are along the coast of Weston located near the Kundari/Weston border, and so early in the House's history a shipping empire was started that continues in existence today. Often the members of the House are as comfortable on the shifting decks of a ship as they are on dry land.

One of the newer enterprises of House Mowbray, starting with Eldan Mowbray's grandfather is the breeding of horses. While Fintan, Eldan's father, didn't really get into the breeding of horses, Eldan has jumped into with enthusiasm. Now the House has two major sources of income, so they are doing well.

Fortification

Midford Keep is the main fortification for Mowbray. It is a fortified keep serving previously as the first line of defense between Kundari and Mobrin.
