From Lost Fables Wiki
Myrefall is the home to House Pendragon, an order of knights that seek to protect Anoma from its threats. Though it has its own government and guard force to lead it.
Decades ago, the House of Pendragon was born from a half-Gravican and half-Armusian, raised in Armusia. He was a tall, dashing young man who roamed Gildaran, seeing all its coast and the famed Ribbari capital of the Carribard Confederacy. In his travels, he met a woman in Gravicus whom he married and had two sons. These kids were raised in Gravicus with Armusian ideals, studying the combat techniques of their neighbours but carrying the spirit and knowledge of Armusian knights. One of the sons joined the legion for a time, his fierceness on the battlefields and skills with spear and shield overshadowing some of his peers. During a particular battle, he fends off a group of raiders in a coastal town, committing an act of valour. He is given land by the Gravican government and allowed to hold a standing army within its lands, but always faithful to the Emperor. This man became the first of House Pendragon, Cassius Pendragon.
The first lord sired six kids, the third child being Oliver Pendragon, the youngest son. While the fourth being Lucille Pendragon, the eldest daughter. Once the pair reached a suitable age, they were sent to Anoma where they sought out people of knowledge to help them understand the New World. Their travels lead them northward, to the coastal ravine and here they found a cave housing strange creatures. All those involved in the battle are knighted by Oliver founding the first round table of knights on Anoma.
They established a simple tavern, at first but slowly it sprawled out into a hamlet with tall houses and shops. Then not long after, a city with raised walls dawning the House Pendragon flag, ballista situated on the towers. A government and then guard force is formed to allow the city to govern itself, and the knights more time to focus on their duty.
