Warcastle, a name known throughout Gielinor for it's stalwart aptitude in battle. Since the conception of the house they have provided the nobility of Southern Misthalin with knights both learned in the arts of strategy and martial combat. Stern, proud, noble are three words often used to describe the sons of Warcastle. Though it's true the house has long fought alongside the higher nobility of the land, their true loyalties lie with the lord of Warcastle, currently Lord Knight Henry Edward Warcastle.
House Warcastle was founded in the year 1942 of the 5th age. Since the begining they had served the duke of Lumbridge until recently when Southern Misthalin became it's own kingdom. It was then that the Knightly House of Warcastle became the Lordly House of Warcastle.
The Coat of Arms
Every servant of the house who obtains the rank of knight is also inducted into the Knightly Order of St. Leo. St. Leo was a Prophet who lived around the time of the house's creation. His name means lion in latin, and it is from his name that the family takes their sigil - A black lion rampant upon a red field. Red for the blood spilt by members throughout the ages, white for the reverence and piety of St. Leo, and black to remind the members of the family that they are mortal and as such can be killed.
Tall, broad shouldered, well built, with stern features. Black hair and brown eyes are a common feature among the line, in truth, it depends on the parents.
Giving the appearance of being visibly cool and well tempered in good company. When affronted the Warcastles will wait until the time is right and the playing field level before taking an opportunity. Known for their illustrious history in battle, The Warcastles are prone to be more level headed and calculating than others. Preferring to observe and think through a situation before acting rashly. Relying as much on tactics and skill at arms as on brute strength to win the day.

Greystone Castle - A moldering ruin in need of repair on the edge of the Forest of Draynor during the 6th lord's time. By the 10th Lords time no more than a few broken towers and rubble piles that have been robbed much by the local populous for stone.
Piper Hall - A small holdfast near the windmill. Fell into ruin during the time of the 7th Lord of Warcastle. Only a few rubble piles by the time of the 10th lord.
