* WhenSheSmiles: Subverted. She has a mouthful of crooked teeth, and when she smiles it appears forceful, sycophantic and insincere even when she doesn't intend it so.

Legend states that King Rodrik Stark won Bear Island after he defeated the then Ironborn ruler at the time in a wrestling match, then awarding the lordship to the Mormonts. Previously, Bear Island had been ruled by the Woodfoots, who had been exterminated by the Ironborn. It's not known whether the Mormonts are originally from Bear Island in the first place or whether they coexisted with the Woodfoots at the island.

The Mormonts are old, proud Stark bannermen descended from the blood of the First Men. Currently, their lady is Maege Mormont, ruling after her brother Jeor Mormont joined the Night's Watch (he's Lord Commander at the beginning of the series) and his son Jorah went into exile, currently serving under Daenerys Targaryen. Maege has five daughters, and her current heir is the oldest, Dacey. Their seat, Bear Island, is an island in the Bay of Ice that is often attacked by Ironborn raiders, prompting the women to learn how to defend themselves from raiders. Fittingly, their sigil is a black bear on green.

* ActionGirl[=/=]ActionMom[=/=]LadyOfWar[=/=]TheSquadette: The women of House Mormont have a long warrior history, learning how to use weapons and wage war to defend themselves against raiding Ironmen while the husbands are away at sea; more recently, since Jeor Mormont took the black, Jorah was attainted, and Maege only had daughters the Mormont women have become the heads of the House (one of the few Houses outside of Dorne to have such an arrangement). Unlike Brienne, their Island's history makes them far more comfortable with the fighting alongside whatever other female roles they best perform. Special mention to Dacey Mormont, specifically a member of Robb's guard, and Alysane "She-Bear" Mormont.

* [[OddFriendship Odd... Understanding]]: She's not about to start ''liking'' Asha thanks to her being a hated Ironborn, who have a long history of raiding Bear Island. Yet, at the same time, the two women do seem to be forming ''some'' form of bond during their interaction. Even if it's simply a case of the impromptu formation of "The Action Girls' Anti-Red God Insanity League" combining with shared cultural understanding. [[spoiler: Asha picks up a ''surprisingly'' intimate amount of knowledge about Northern religious practices and traditional mores all of a sudden when it comes to trying to convince Stannis to move the encampment to execute her brother honourably by the sword, rather than by burning. It doesn't take much to work out where the finer details of ''that'' probably came from, for all Asha probably wasn't a total ignoramus going in.]]

* BestialityIsDepraved: PlayedForLaughs: several times when Maege is mentioned, a character usually jokingly mentions rumors about her sleeping with bears, who apparently fathered her children. Alysane also claims that her children were fathered by bears and that all Mormonts are skinchangers. It's worth noting that both still have their own family name, indicating that they are not married.
