Jocifer Stooble is the head of House Stooble. House Stooble’s sigil is a white cockatrice running across a golden field, and their words are “From the Rear”.
In most noble houses, “head of house” is a title conferred to the eldest offspring of a generation. Not so in House Stooble. In House Stooble, the title is conferred to the youngest offspring of a generation. It is said, when a child of House Stooble reaches their thirteenth name day, they are seized with an irresistible impulse to travel. They immediately abdicate their seat and join a mummer’s troupe. However, the youngest offspring of a generation is obligated to remain head of house out of a bizarre sense of duty. Any attempt to simply disband the house is thwarted by the head’s elder siblings, who terrorize them until they abandon the notion. Only once the head of house has a child who is of age may they confer the title and join a mummer’s troupe.
Indeed, many heads of House Stooble die before they can sire an heir. This is because House Stooble is the most reviled noble house in Westeros. Due to their legendary cowardice, no respectable noble house will associate with them. In fact, “From the Rear” was first coined by another noble house in an attempt to mock them. House Stooble quickly adopted the jest as their official words in an act of re-appropriation, and their original words have since been forgotten.
Jocifer’s greatest fear is that he too will die before siring an heir. In the past, some heads of House Stooble have simply sired a bastard and legitimized them as their lawful heir, but Jocifer is determined to wed a lady of noble lineage. He wishes to wed such a lady, sire an heir, and, when the heir is of age, join a mummer’s troupe with his beloved wife.
He has an irrational fear of snails.
