House Bemot is a major dwarven house and part of the noble caste.

Background Edit

As with several dwarven houses, House Bemot came into being when its founding member was made a Paragon. Bemot was a commoner who became both paragon and king in one vote from the Assembly.[1] He ruled Orzammar during the Fourth Blight and disbanded the Assembly for two years, establishing the precedent that the warrior caste answers directly to the king in times of war.[2]

During the events of the Fifth Blight, the heir of the deshyr of House Bemot is married to Revelka Aeducan, a member of the House Aeducan. However Revelka is at the same time a secret lover of the Proving fighter Baizyl Harrowmont.

The Carta once stole a gold statuette which was depicting Paragon Bemot.[3] Carta's leader, Beraht, who sought to hide this statuette somewhere, blackmailed Sigrun into hiding the statuette in Mischa's shop. Eventually when the statuette was found, Mischa was exiled to the surface however according to her House Bemot could have had her executed for her perceived crime if they wanted.
