House Ryger's sigil, the willow, is symbolic of the philosophy expressed in its words: "What Can Bend Does Not Break." The house has survived both enemy and element through flexibility and endurance. Some think of the Rygers as weak and easily pushed around, but the truth is that their willingness to tolerate aggression is a strategic decision. They are very willing to fight when necessary, but they do so armed with knowledge gained while enduring and bending.
