The colloquially British spelling of the word "honor", which is derived from the Latin "honor". Blame it on Their Majesties. It's Their English.
The spelling honour is some times used by people from countries outside Britain as well, if they are desperate to make the point that they are not American.

What having a lockwolf gives you. Generally considered good.

Note that it is not the same as your standard honor, it is a very specialized type.
Oohh! I have a lockwolf! I'm so honoured!
