During this ceremony the person should pledge their life, honor, and allegiance to either a House or an Order.   Across the World there are several Houses and Orders, and a person usually chooses to join a House or Order that their relatives are a part of, because they have grown up together with them.   Different Houses have different values and cultures. People should choose to join one that lines up with their own, but they don't always do that.
