Lynx Clan Edit
An old and almost destroyed clan with an extreme grudge against the Eagle Clan, the Lynx Clan now has its only known surviving member living in Limbwood, however the last of a lost clan perk seems to imply this was your clan.
During The quest "A Feud Not Forgotten" a member of the eagles reveals that the Brotherhood of the Battleaxe keep the banner of your ancestors' clan.
On the Quest,The Lynx Banner(only if you are Clanless),the main character decides to follow a member of the Eagle Clan and finds himself in front of old Eagle's chiefs which keep the banner of the forgotten clan.After the experience you can expose the recovered banner filling the space of the White clanless banner.
During these quest it is also revealed the past of the Lynx Clan(if you choose the let them go option) by the members of the Brotherhood of the Battleaxe.Many years ago the members of the Eagle Clan and the Lynx were one and the Brotherhood offered them wise council for generations.But the Lynx Clan grew too powerful and strong men filled with lust for power rallied bands of warriors around themselves and fought for power.
Kokko the Eagle was the strongest of them all strong enough to challenge the Brotherhood itself.He built the mighty fort at the top of Stag Peak to consolidate his power but the others protested and make an alliance against him.Then the Battle at the Hillfort followed being a bitter and bitter struggle leaving the Lynx Clan ruined.To distinguish his followers from the Lynx that were allies against him,Kokko had put a banner with an eagle despicted on it.After the Battle at the Hillfort he forbade the use of the Lynx Banner and hunted everyone who use it with fanatical zeal.
Weary of fighting the surviving Lynx Clansmen either submitted to Kokko's or hide themselves along the clanless.The Few survivors of the Brotherhood of the Battleaxe swear to erase the memory of the Lynx Banner,Following Kokko's legacy they protect the Eagle Banner with their lives.If you follow this route you can't get the banner of your ancient clan.
Also being a Lynx Clan member is the only way to pass through the Bridge of Truth in Thickwood without fighting being the only correct answer to the second question of the guard.Another extra quest in Thickwood,an eagle clan member reveals that the treasure of the land was gathered by the Lynx Clan and tries to kill the main character.
A Lynx's Costume is available on the shop if you are a clanless that followed,"The Last of an Old Clan" storyline.
