Loyalty Binds Us
Far from King’s Landing is a wild and untamed region known simply as the North. Distance allows the people of this land to preserve the customs passed down since the days of the First Men. Bounded by the Wall, a continent-spanning barrier constructed of solid ice to the north, the Bay of Ice to the west, the Bay of Seals to the east, and the boggy wetlands of the Neck to the south, it is oft-regarded as an uncivilized land, where men worship strange gods and hold to stranger beliefs. Ruling the North is Lord Eddard Stark of House Stark, who governs his lands from his sprawling castle Winterfell.
