The Weapons of House Marlowe

The Marlowes occupy the courtyard. They’re scattered along the grass in pairs. Both men and women train side by side. Some of them are sparring with swords and daggers. Others fight with hatchets and spiked hammers. Those who aren’t wielding weapons are wielding their bodies. They crash into each other like elk fighting over territory and wrestle on the ground.

     Emily doesn’t know which Marlowe weapon is more dangerous to their opponent: their sword or their body?

Known for their fierceness and skills on the battlefield, the members of House Marlowe are born and raised to be warriors. Marlowe men and women are trained side-by-side since childhood and are given equal skillsets. Unlike the other Eight Grand Houses, women are seen as equal to men in every sense of the way. They shout and they curse. They punch and they spit. They take lovers before marriage. They are equals in marriage and are equal to any man on the battlefield.

The members of House Marlowe are taught that winning a fight is the only road to glory. That seeing the light drain from your enemy’s eyes is life’s greatest reward. They are raised to be hard, to be fierce, to be warriors above all else.

House Marlowe’s Most Used Weapons 

  • Warhammer

  • Double Bladed Ax

  • Dagger

  •  Hatchet

     They punch and kick. They slice and strike each other with brutal force. They bite and knock heads. Massive men hit women who are a third of their size with the same force they would men their own size. But these women don’t need to be taken easy on. They don’t need to be defended. They’re quick to dodge the men’s attacks and unleash brutal ones of their own.
