Aru-Artenia Elessar is the second youngest child of King Aragorn, and Arwen Elessar making her a member of House Elessar of Gondor. Artenia has two siblings in Ildarion, and Eldarion Elessar, of which Eldarion is a well known commander in the south east corridor of Gondor, while her brother Ildarion has remained steadfast and determined in defending the northeastern approach into Gondor. Known as somewhat of a wild child she has become romantically linked with many men in Gondor, but she would marry James Tampetty of whom she attempted to love and be a good wife to but he was believed dead after the Trolloc ambush in the north. Artenia Elessar also has one child with Garrett Elbertson of whom she came to love while she visited him while he was sick in the Minas Tirith hospital and their child Ranfin Elessar is still very young at the time of Westros.
Artenia Elessar is the third son of Aragorn Elessar and thus she was born into one of the most royal and long lived families in the entire continent. Artenia at an early age begin to show signs of a certain kind of insanity of which no one could diagnose but was a sort of schizophrenia. After doctor after doctor couldn't help her she learned to somewhat live with her issues, and would become known for the fact that she had very little impulse control due to her turning towards alcohol so that she could somewhat mitigate the voices in her head. She was forced to abort several children as noblemen attempted to impregnate the daughter of the king, and it wasn't until she met James Tampetty that she finally knew any kind of real affection, and she would marry him shortly afterwards.
She has very little control over her impulses due to suffering from a form of schizophrenia, and despite attempts at fixing herself all she has done is cause herself pain and emotional heartache. and this has led to her reputation being what it is now.
If one looks past her severe problems she is an incredibly kind young women, who is a sufferer of some severe problems but otherwise cares about everyone she meets, and attempts to improve the lives of her people. This emotional care has often been overlooked in favor of simply believing shes whore.
Artenia Elessar was born in Osgiliath during a trip there that Arwen was taking in the belief that she still had time before Artenia would be born. This means she is the first Elessar child to be born anywhere outside of Minus Tirith in many generations.
At the age of fourteen Artenia begin to have difficulty with headaches, and in an attempt to fix this she went to a doctor - who was silently a deep opponent of the Elessar Family - and the doctor gave her a herb which she could use to get rid of the headaches. The purpose of the herb was in fact not to fix her headaches but in fact was meant to induce madness in any who used it.
So after taking the herb for the days she was told to she found the headaches were gone but she begin hearing voices in her head. With this new problem she returned to the doctor but discovered that he was no longer there and he had shut down his entire medical facility. Beyond scared, but to afraid to tell her family that she heard voices she begin to turn to alcohol which she discovered dulled the noise of the voices. This alcohol though also unleashed a wild side in the usually kind, and emotionally thoughtful young women, and this wild side was taken advantage of by many noblemen in Gondor.
As she was taken advantage of more and more by the nobles her father Aragorn begin to hear news of this and wanted to put a stop to it immediatly. He told her directly that he was disapointed and that she needed to calm down or else, and while she wanted with everything to listen to him her desires were too strong for her to resist and she continued down the dark path. In her darkness she found her first light when she met the kind James Tampetty who while being her personal gaurd for some time she was too caught up in her own things to notice him. When she did she discovered a man that loved her with all of his heart and soon after this she became pregnant with his child, and during this time she begin searching for a way to make the desires calm down so that she could be the wife that James deserved. In this search the pregnant Artenia travelled to the island of Frey where she met with a medicine women who prescribed her a medicine that would cause her debilitating pain but in the end would heal her weakeness. Desperate for something to fix herself she begin using the medicine which as she was told caused her immense pain to the point that she was unbearable to be around much of the time.

Nortburg Tournament of 5125
Main Article : Nortburg Tournament of 5125
Following the crowning of William Lovie III. as the new King of Lucerne he met with his council within the Lucernian capital and they went bout devising there next steps of action. Following some of the more extensive plans he met with the Shadow Council, and Jacob Vorn IV. of whom now stood as the King's Archbishop and the group would decide they needed to know more about the regions around them and also repair damage and they would do this by planning a tournament at Nortburg and invite foreign dignitaries to the tournament alongside the most influential of nobles of Lucerne. Also invited to the Tournament would be the Trachtenberg family of whom were the blood cousins of William Lovie incluing his uncle Frank Trachtenberg, and two cousins Michelle Trachtenberg, and Kristen Trachtenberg all of whom William wanted to repair relationships with most specifically with Michelle who he came to understand had been treated quite terribly by his father. The Trachtenberg side of the family had become distant due to several instances, most notably the imprisonment of Bill Lovie's cousin Katia Lovie the Matriarch of House Trachtenberg in the city of Berne.
True Sons of Lucerne
A large force under a white flag and led by Kieth Schwartz, and Alistair Bedregen arrives at the tournament ground carrying also the flag of the True Sons of Lucerne. The arrival of these True Sons would cause William himself accompanied by the Shadow Council and Charlie Swan to confront them and while at first wanting to bar them from the tournament as they were basically traitors the arrival of Hanna Arryn, and Aria Arryn would lead to William speaking privately with Hanna and Aria. Speaking to the two alongside Leven Martell, and Charlie Swan he would discover that the situation in Berne was growing completely out of control and that was why they had agreed to all the demands of Sean Lovie and had come here. Seeing that his friends were in grave danger he would agree to play along with the plans of the True Sons and allowed Danzal to take part in the tournament. Following this meeting with Hanna and Aria he would meet with Kieth Schwartz who was like an uncle to him during his childhood and the two would talk over everything that had happened with Kieth admitting to everything and for the first time giving William a true glimpse at what Bill had been going through and why he had chosen to do all the things that he had done. Another of the members of the group to come under the flag was Harrold Hardyng of whom as a dire hard member of the rebellion against Sean Lovie would sneak himself into the force with the help of Alistair and when he arrived he met with Teri-Jacob Vorn IV. and together in secret the two worked out steps for Harrold to take to help with the eventual retaking of Berne.
Following the conversation between Kieth, and William Kieth would leave the tournament as he was a soldier of Bill Lovie and not Sean Lovie and did not care if the plan of Sean succeded or not, and thus he would return to Orleans where he would report to Bill Lovie about the conversation that he and William had. With the departure of Sean Lovie the remaining elements of the True Sons of Lucerne were mainly William loyalists and in this way he would meet again with Hanna but this time she introduced them to House Krinner and House Dorin of whom led by Harrold Krinner, Trailen Dorin and accompanied by prominent heirs in Danzal Krinner, and Trailen Dorin II. they would be shown to be loyalists who were more then ready to assist when the time came to destroy the forces of Sean Lovie.
Meeting the Elves
Following the Second Battle of Minus Ithil the Elves of High Forest would come to understand that the alliance between Gondor, Lucerne, and High Forest was something that they should work towards and as they followed the Lucernians into the relief of Tree Hill they would also send a large force to Nortburg to celebrate at the tournament. Alongside sending a force led by Taflarion Stormrage, and his wife Helian Stormrage, and their daughter Tonlia Stormrage, alongside her husband Cadwyr Winterdew the High Forest government back in the capital would also make several large movements for advancing the alliance itself when Malfurion Stormrage would contact the forces of the Kingdom of Quel'Thalas, and the Atmer Empire and told the two forces that they needed to send forces to the tournament as the new king of Lucerne was someone who truly was willing to try and change things for the better. The Sindar Elven Kingdom of Quel'Thalas sends representatives in the form of Alleria Windrunner, and Marinda Oakwhisper to the tournament as well with the purpose of arranging a stronger relationship with the Kingdom of Lucerne's new King. The Atmer Empire would send members of the Atmer Elven great house in the form of the House of Finwe to the tournament and these Elves used Magi portals to enter the Kingdom of Quel'Thalas and then travelled into Lucerne alongside the force led by Alleria. These Atmer Elves would be the first of the High Elves to enter the Kingdom of Lucerne in an almost uncountable time and led by Elendil Finwe III., his daughter Alais Finwe, and sons Talais Finwe, and Anar Finwe IV. of whom have come to discuss an alliance with William and Lucerne. The Elves appear very honorable about their intentions and the talks go well, with Hedrik Clegane III. leading the negotiations with the High Elves, and despite eventually leaving it would be so successful that William would make his intentions known to them by inviting the Elves to found a small settlement in Frosthelm. The Elves like the idea and Elendil sends his sons back to Ulthuan to make the arrangements while he will accompany William for the next while.
End of a Betrothal
The Starke's had come on mass to the Tournament of Nortburg and during this time it was believed that Sansa Starke, and Joffrey Lannister would get a lot of time together to get to know eachother, and while this was true with Joffrey, and Sansa going on a walk together and having a good time, this would alter dramatically later that night.
As the tournament is only a few days from starting the final invitees arrive in the form of the Manderlys of whoom William meets with several representatives of the Manderlys who control the White Knife and during this conversation he and his father in law Charlie Swan are able to arrange a marriage between Winfred Manderly, and Miley Black. In this arrangement he and Charlie Swan decide that they will send Lucas Scott of whom is deemed by many to be the hero of the Siege of Tree Hill and thus someone they want to remain close too, but also William has become obsessed with Brooke Scott and thinks on her constantly believing that this will give him a chance to see her again.
Arrival of Brooke Scott
Following the end of the tournament William and the group prepare to return to the capital where they will plan out the reconquest of Berne, but this changes with the arrival of Brooke Scott of whom breaks down crying in front of him as he stands with Leven, and Jasper and William quickly takes her away from the two into a back room where before he is able to say anything she reveals her stomach showing she is nearly four months pregnant from the time they last saw each other. Realizing in that moment she appears more pregnant then Bella he ponders the consequences of this but she doesn't demand anything just wishes him to help her with her grandfathers funeral.
