House Stormsail of Saltfort is a noble house of the Stormlands, Stationed in the Islands on the northern edge of the Sea of Dorne. They are vassals to House Baratheon, but are also very loyal to House Targaryen. They control three large islands in the Sea of Dorne, the Brine Isle, the Sandstone Isle, and the Tidal Isle, along with the small islands around them. The House controls these lands from their fortress known as Saltfort, with the Head known as the Captain of the Saltfort.

House Stormsail's Sigil is a white stag's head on a gold background with a blue sea on the bottom, and dark gray storm cloud on the top. Small modifications are made when changing from a banner to a shield, most notably by shrinking the sea area and compressing the stag.

History

Background

The house was formed during the Conquest of Dorne, at approximately 160 AL, by the Baratheon bastard Erik Storm. Erik gained his house after raiding Dornish ships and returning some of the looted riches to the King, Daeron I. Though this was technically piracy, the King would give Erik islands in the Sea of Dorne for his victories in a fairly desperate war.

Once given the islands and lordship, Erik would organize the house much like he had organized his ships, with the formation of honorary members and a tradition of raiding along the Stepstones. The first honorary member was Xaro So, who would become Xaro Stormsail, who was given the Sandstone Isle on Erik's Deathbed.

During the Blackfyre Rebellions, Olf, Erik's firstborn son, would lead the Stormsail forces against the Blackfyre armies, pushing back small pockets in small skirmishes, such as the Battle of Wendwater and the Battle of Rosewood. Due to these victories, Olf would bring his forces to the Battle of Redgrass Field, causing massive losses to the Stormsail military and the death of Olf by an unknown knight of the Reach. Erik would die a couple weeks after, before the formal joining of Dorne into the Iron Throne. His second son, Canut Stormsail, would become the next Lord. The House would not fight in any major battles beyond the First Blackfyre Rebellion, instead focusing their resources on raiding along the coastlines controlled by rebel houses.
