Who are THE BLACK LIONS OF VALENZ?
THE BLACK LIONS OF VALENZ was born from the ashes of a small but mighty alliance known as The Stronghold. We were mostly Lannister bannermen ruled by a Lannister. But when that leader abandoned her responsibilities to our alliance, Lady Prisys, of House Valenz, the first of her name, Mistress of Evergreen, Mistress of Word, Officer and Swordhunter for the Stronghold, took the Mantle of Leadership and heeded all those who wish to follow her rule to join her in our quest to make our new alliance a better one.
Since Lady Valenz unshackled all of us from the Lannister's rule, we are now free to roam and make our own mark in this world. Of course, the Lannisters think differently. In their eyes, we are a bunch of rebel lords to be killed on sight. But, because of the War of the Four Kings and the Queen across the Sea, the Lannisters could ill-afford to spread their forces even thinner to pursue us. They were left with no choice but to turn a blind eye to our emancipation.
Although we ousted a Lannister, we do not deny our heritage of being a bannermen for that Great House. In our hearts and minds, we are still mighty lions who crave the hunt. But we are no longer lions ruled by Lannister gold. We are now free lions and under the leadership of Lady Valenz, we carry the sigil of the Black Lion. Under her leadership, we live by these words:
PROTECT We protect our own.
PROSPER We prosper through trade.
PREY We prey on our enemies.
We are THE BLACK LIONS OF VALENZ. LONG LIVE THE BLACK LIONS!
