With Christopher Bell

Catherine Bell is the daughter of Margeary, and James Lovie making her a member of House Lovie through her father and a member of House Ordosthrough her mother. Catherine has three siblings in the form of Baldwin, James, and Martin Lovie of which the eldest child in Baldwin was the heir of House Lovie when he died of sickness leaving a shocked kingdom to weep over his death, while Martin Lovie died during the Battle of Lyons and was known as a very brave warrior, and her brother James became King but lost himself in the Battle of Lyons and became mad before finally being removed nearly twenty years later by his own son William Lovie. Catherine Bell is married to the commoner Chris Bell of whom upon marrying her created House Bell of which she became the Matriarch of. With her husband Chris Bell she has three children in Emma, Hanah, and Chris Bell of which Emma Bell is a growing member of the Order of the Green Dragon, her daughter Hanah has assisted her mother in the leadership of House Bell, while her son is the heir to House Bell and on top of this is one of the only males in House Lovie.

Catherine Lovie was born the second last child of James Lovie and during her youth she was very close to her younger brother James Lovie of whom she would take a very active role in. When her father died she watched her brother forced into a role he wasn't ready for, and she tried her best to keep guiding him down the right moral path but found it increasingly difficult to do as he became more and more popular. In her isolation she became interested in the people of Lucerne proper and during this time she would by chance become involved with Christopher Bell of whom was the heir to the moderate House Bell family and spent his time in Lower Lucerne helping those in need out of religious duty. Christopher Bell and Catherine Lovie would fall in love during their time helping the people there and this love would lead to Christopher's father Francis paying a large dowry and was able to have the two betrothed. Catherine Bell would suffer many miscarriages during the early part of her marriage to Christopher Bell and after five miscarriages she begin to contemplate suicide as the depression over these miscarriages increased but after a suicide attempt failed she discovered she was pregnant and decided to give it one more chance and after her brother secretly brought in Suzanne a small time Magi from Tree Hill who had become known for helping pregnancies. After the birth of Emma Bell it was a new world for Catherine of whom kept on Suzanne and used her influence to have named her lady in waiting alongside Suzanne's daughter Wynne and then also named them a knightly house giving them farm land west of Tree Hill. With the extreme depression of Lisa Lovie she was the primary motherly figure in William Lovie III's life, and this relationship has only grown stronger through the years. This relationship has come to somewhat define Catherine as during the increasingly eratic reign of James Lovie she became basically the moral compass of the remainder of the House that didn't want to follow the behavior of the Patriarch in James Lovie. This role caused her a lot of problems with James Lovie and on many occasions he threatened to have her killed but she believed in her heart that what little humanity remained in James wouldn't allow him to harm her, as even in his madness he showed a remarkable care for his internal family outside of Tristan, and Alice. Esme Portmane would return to Lucerne during the peak of James Lovie's road to madness after he wrote her a letter begging her to save him from the prison his mind was trapped in and returning to Lucerne she attempted to destroy Mycstism but its Magi protected it and she then nearly killed James at his urging but as she was going to do it his corruption took over and he nearly killed her and after a brief scuffle he used his Magi to teleport her back to Lorderon. Catherine Bell would be imprisoned following the failed attempt to kill her brother and throughout the events of the Plague she remained imprisoned until finally she would be released after she pledged to her brother that she would never turn against him again. Catherine would lead much of House Lovie to Bell Hold in the months preceding Matilda's marriage to Marius Scott and during this time she used the isolation from the capital to form her plans for the future and would critically make the decision to turn away from her brother. Volker Yernese would travel to the Nortburg tournament of 5120 and while there he would meet with Catherine Lovie of whom orchestrated a meeting with Gulian Swann where they attempted to bring Volker back into the fold, but this meeting was discovered by Mara Guntbold who alerted her uncle about this. Following his discovery of meeting with members of the yellow dragons it was Volker that lied about Catherine's involvement and instead to protect his family as well as Catherine he implicated Alice Lovie believing that the kings child would be safe from reprisal.

History

Early History

Catherine Bell was born the oldest child of James, and Lisa Lovie, and as such was alive for much of her father's later years in power. As she grew up she was very close to her mother Lisa Lovie, and from her mother she was taught the great importance of always remembering your family, and being loyal and loving to your family though it all. It was this principle that guided young Catherine Lovie, and so when her brother James turned 21 and her father died, she was right at his side during his early years as the King of Lucerne.

Finding Love

In her isolation she became interested in the people of Lucerne proper and during this time she would by chance become involved with Christopher Bell of whom was the heir to the moderate House Bell family and spent his time in Lower Lucerne helping those in need out of religious duty. Christopher Bell and Catherine Lovie would fall in love during their time helping the people there and this love would lead to Christopher's father Francis paying a large dowry and was able to have the two betrothed.

Death and Life

Catherine Bell would suffer many miscarriages during the early part of her marriage to Christopher Bell and after five miscarriages she begin to contemplate suicide as the depression over these miscarriages increased but after a suicide attempt failed she discovered she was pregnant and decided to give it one more chance and after her brother secretly brought in Suzanne a small time Magi from Tree Hill who had become known for helping pregnancies. Wynne would travel to Lucerne with her mother Suzanne where she would watch as her mother used her Magi abilities to assist the pregnancy of Catherine Lovie of whom had suffered several miscarriages and for Wynne this was yet another sign of the existence of God and pushed her further into the Church of Christ. After the birth of Emma Bell it was a new world for Catherine of whom kept on Suzanne and used her influence to have named her lady in waiting alongside Suzanne's daughter Wynne and then also named them a knightly house giving them farm land west of Tree Hill.

Lauren Garrn Cover Amazing7.jpg

One part of me never wanted to leave my family. That part wanted to stay by my mothers side for the rest of my life. The other side. That side looked at the big city and thought. This is my future.
Lauren Garrn

As they enter the city her father takes them to the Garrn apartment in Lucerne which are in the District of James in the eastern part of Lucernian Proper. Traveling east off the main road of Lucerne they pass through the endless rows of houses in Lucernian Proper and seeing the number of beggars lining the streets causes a shock for Lauren who has only ever heard of how glorious and rich the capital is. Arriving at their apartment they get settled but don’t stay long as her father says she is to go to meet with Tristan at his seat at the Fortress of Aelfris the Gentle.

The Nortburg Tournament of 5120
This tournament is for all of you. Its time you started building your own family now William.

Rosalie Hale Cover4.png

You are my son, and more then that you are the heir to this kingdom. That does not require me to keep you aware of everything that is going on at all times.
James Lovie II.

Its while sitting in the gardens outside the Skytower kissing Rosalie Hale when the two are interrupted by the arrival of Carlisle Cullen, and Kieth Schwartz. The two attempt to send Rosalie away but William resists this and she stays with him as they tell him about the coming Nortburg Tournament. It’s revealed that following the wedding it was William that was shuttled back to Lucerne and has been locked away inside the Tower of Clouds estate with only his friends able to visit him inside. William demands to know where Alice is and as the group is arguing about this its James that comes out of the front gate. William looks to his father and is shocked at his appearance. The last time he saw his father was only a few weeks ago but seeing him again he looks like he’s aged twenty years. The whole group is quiet as James is helped to get over to them with the assistance of two guards under each arm. Alongside the guards he is followed by Aelfwynn Turnidlon, Fabian Klauseburg, who all have an aura of nervousness as they reach William. Carlisle attempts to have James returned to the tower, but James ignores him and tells the guards to sit him down on the bench. After sitting down, he sends everyone away except for Kieth, and William. As Rosalie goes to leave, she gives him a kiss on the cheek, and it makes William feel a sense of safety. The discussion between the three of them does not go well as James reveals several hard truths for William. The first being the fact that Alice has indeed been betrothed to Paulus Yernese and nothing William does will change this fact. The next is that he would not be accompanying them to Nortburg and that Kieth would be his guardian while he was outside of Lucerne. Williams attempts to resist the words of his father lack any real aggression as he is thrown off by how sickly his father appears and having never seen his father looking so close to death, he is unable to quickly adjust. James discusses that at the tournament there will be many girls sent to the tournament as he has made it known that he wants to decide on William’s future bridge and will decide at the tournament based on Kieth’s negotiations. James begins coughing which again puts William in a state of panic as he watches his father break down. The coughing gets bad causing the return of Aelfwynn and Fabian who joined by several guards pick him up and bring him back to the Cloud Tower leaving a shaken William behind.

Your father is a good person. I have spent my whole life near him. My life’s mission is to protect and serve him. There are moments when I think back to the boy he used to be, and I can barely recognize the man I see now. The truth is that’s how life goes. People change. People have flaws and as the days go by these flaws become more apparent. Listen to me when I say this, William. Once you love someone. Once you have given someone your word. Loyalty doesn’t have an exit door.
Kieth Schwartz

Following this its Kieth that stays behind and talks with William and the two show themselves to be close as despite everything happening William looks at him in a father like way. Kieth tells William to have the servants pack some things for the trip, and he does this following Kieth onto the lift of the Cloud Tower. Kieth commands two servants to accompany them up the lift to assist William and two girls quickly shuffle on to the lift in response. The two go up the lift but Kieth gets off on the fifth floor leaving William to travel further up with only two of his servants with him in the form of Adolfa and Helmgarda. Going up the next fifteen floors on the lift he looks on the two girls who keep their head bowed the entire time up the lift, and William begins to ponder who he is as a person. Thinking back to the peasants on the mountain he realizes that he has been detatched from the common man of Lucerne and decides to be better. William sparks a conversation with the two but only Adolfa pushes past her nerves to speak with William and the two share a laugh as the lift arrives at his floor. Going onto the floor they move past two guards towards his room where Adolfa follows him, while Helmgarda does the same but trails further behind. While discussing the trip to Nortburg its Adolfa that tells William that she overheard discussions to have his friends not accompany him on the trip to Nortburg and hearing this news he thanks her with a kiss and rushes to the lift. Leaving behind Helmgarda, and Adolfa to pack his things he goes back to the lift and prepares to find his friends to bring them back to the tower.

Leven Martell Cover10.jpg

You didn't think you could get rid of me that easily did you?
Leven Martell

Lying to the guards that he is just going to the garden he can escape the tower and get into the garden. Inside the garden he hops the wall and sneaks onto the walls where he uses a rope to climb himself down thinking how this gets easier the taller, he gets. As he reaches the bottom, he pulls the rope with him and then sees Leven sitting down across from him smiling at him. Revealing that she knew he would escape sooner or later she had come here to meet him. Pulling her into a hug he explains what has happened and attempts to take her hand and go and gather the Shadow Council, but she stops him. Telling him that she had been with Aria when guards had come and commanded that she begin packing for the trip. She had then tried to see Jasper and Rosalie but saw guards there as well revealing her attempts to find the Shadow Council had all ended in failure leaving just her not taken away. At Leven’s words he prepares to sneak her inside so that she is not sent away with the rest of his friends. Using the rope, he pulls himself back up and then helps Leven do the same. Going back to the tower he goes inside where he finds the servant clothing, he has hidden for events like this and brings them back outside. Taking them to Leven he gives them to her to change and while at first, he turns away to give her privacy he sees her reflection in a vase. Seeing her body exposed he feels the desire to turn around and touch her skin but controls himself and does not turn around. With Leven pretending to be a servant they go inside returning to the lift and go back to his floor. Arriving at the floor they find his things packed and by the entrance to the lift and no sight of Helmgarda and Adolfa. The guard on duty is Erik Fahnrich who recognized Leven but doesn’t say anything just smiles and lets the two go past him. William wakes up in the morning and finds himself and Leven cuddling in bed together and feeling her skin against him he begins touching her this time unable to control himself. Leven wakes up to this and embarrassed at first to be caught she silences him with a kiss. The kiss becomes heated with the two touching each other but as it risks going somewhere further, he stops them as he becomes ashamed of betraying Rosalie. Leven looks disappointed but smiles at him, and the two get dressed as by this point they were both naked. Leaving Lucerne with only Leven, and his servants they travel by carriage towards Nortburg with Leven and William sharing the carriage together. During the ride they talk as they always have but things have changed between them as there is a chemistry now there that William resists due to his feelings for Rosalie. Leven does tell William briefly about her time on the road back to Lucerne and hints that she believes Wuldrik Toyne may be her real father.

Blood of Old Atlantis

Seri-Relisia Terrick Cover Amazing Front.jpg

You didn't think you could get rid of me that easily did you?
Leven Martell

As James and his council begin planning for different marriage options for the prince William Lovie III. it was James that became very interested in the idea of having a Numenorian brought. James understood that the blood of Atlantis was very rare in the valley and thus they would have to find this Numenorian girl from somewhere outside of the valley. As word was sent to loyalists throughout the surrounding kingdoms it was a trader in Lorderon that passed on the information that a princess in Arnor was not back on the market. It was thus James Lovie was sent information that the young Ar-Brentey Hemsworth was now free following the death of her proposed husband in battle. James sent letters to King Jonas Hemsworth asking him if her hand was open for his young son William Lovie III., and after a series of back and forth letters Jonas would take this option to his council, and their would little debate among them. It was decided that clearly this was a top tier marriage option, and thus was one of the two eventual Numenorian betrothal options that were brought in. The second Numenorian option was discovered much closer to home in the form of Seri-Relisia Terrick of whom was a member of the Dragonoph Temple that had become increasingly attached to the Shadow Council and thus an obvious option. With Relisia an obvious option it was Aldiel that appeared before the Circle council and was told of this plan, and would give permission for the betrothal discussions stating that she had the full authority of her husband. The truth of this was the Aldiel was long dead and this was actually in fact Septemax that was acting as Aldiel and thus it was Septemax that became perhaps the last true Dovah influence in the capital.

Noone told me the distance between the two places, and for that reason it was shocking not only the distance but the complete changes that you go through in travelling from Arnor to Lucerne. The ice tipped mountains of Arnor pass through the lush Riverlands, and the hardy lands east of Stormwind, and then finally you reach the prestine valley of Lucerne.
Brentey Hemsworth

Ar-Brentey was told about the plan, and having spent the better part of two decades in isolation at the Anchorite of Fornost she was overjoyed at the chance to leave the Anchorite. During the time before she left she was left a list of things that William liked that had been sent by James Lovie but unfortunately James did not know his son half as well as he thought so the vast majority of these things were inaccurate. As she was leaving she was forced to for the first time accept life without her family of whom had been her rock for most of her life, but she was sent with her handmaiden Ilana La-Phellion of House Phellion. So it would be nothing more then Ar-Brentey her handmaiden Ilana, and a small party of men at arms to protect them when they went for a trip to a completely foreign land. Also along with her learning she begin taking the name Britt the rough translation of what her Numenorian name became in common germanic. The Journey for Brentey was extremely long, but over the time she and her best friend Ilana La-Phellion would be reading up on the history of Lucerne through several books that they had been given by James Lovie during his time in Arnor. Through this they learned the history of the Kingdom of Lucerne, but more importantly they learned all there was to know about House Lovie in book learning. During this reading she came to greatly admire her betrothed's name sake in the form of William Lovie of whom she read all about, and the relationship that he had with the dragons. She tried her very best for the situation that awaited her, and for her part was desperate to have this work not wanting to return to the anchorite but also desperately wanting a partner.

I did whatever I could to keep him interested. He was a maturing young man, but for all intesive purposes he was a child. I had to be the greatest of all the distractions he would be met by or else I would lose everything.
Brentey Hemsworth

When Brentey arrived in Lucerne James made sure to use all of his skill to manipulate the young girl into keeping her purpose their a secret. With the element of surprise still with him, he set Brentey out on a mission to seduce William, which based on his adoration at the time of Rosalie Hale made this difficult but James told her that she was not going to have a problem with Rosalie who he planned on removing from the equation.

Aranna Jovinsson

Edward Cullen is walking through the streets of Krebville with Jasper when he begins seeing the vision of a women hovering over a building in front of him. Going into his pocket he puts the ring on his finger and shakes off the feeling. Continuing to walk with Jasper the two go back to joking when he feels the ring fall off his finger. As this happens the girls appears again in front of him now holding the ring, but she clearly cannot be seen by Jasper. Using an excuse, he leaves Jasper and follows the girl down an alleyway where she waits for him. The two speak for a time where she introduces herself as Aranna Jovinsson and that she represents a group she calls the Council of Destill who want to speak with him, and by extension she hints they want to speak with prince William. Edward tells her that he will speak with William but when could they offer prince William that would bring him to the table with them. At this she holds out a tiny scroll and hands it to Edward telling him to read it and then when he and William agree to the meeting that she will be found at the docks just west of Krebville tonight. She walks away from him leaving him to open the scroll and reading the contents he discovers that this scroll which is known as “The Codex of Sogronul” details a plot by this Sogronul to convert large numbers of women in Turnidlon to Magi and then create an army from them. Following the Shadow Council discussing things its William that sits up from the table and asks Edward’s opinion of what they should do. It becomes clear to Edward in this moment that William is giving him the final decision powers and Edward wanting to help William pushes the idea of meeting with the girl. With the plan decided on it’s the Shadow Council that sneaks from the Krebville palace grounds joined by several prominent guards and heads towards the docks. Also, among this group going to the meeting are Aelfwynn Turnidlon, Tanya Denali, and Ar-Brentey Hemsworth. Arriving at the docks they find several women waiting for them. Aranna Jovinsson steps forward and thanks William for coming and then goes into the deal that she wants to make. She offers to help William in his campaign against the Order of the Voiceless Angel and in return they ask that William requests two things. Firstly, they want William to authorize the founding of a Guild for them which has been rejected up and till now because of its Magi origins. Secondly, they request that House Reinmann make House Gollwitzer an Ealdorman so that the guild would be further protected. William agrees to these demands and following this the girls swear an oath of loyalty to William and say that in the morning they will be at Krebville with a boat to join his forces in their final journey to Turnidlon.

Orival Crane

Orival Crane during his attempts to understand why they had abandoned Tree Hill would decide that the only real thing to do was to travel to the north where he would attempt to meet with a member of the royal family in the form of Catherine Bell. Catherine would make this move in an attempt to find out whether or not there were truly survivors at Tree Hill, and saw Orival and his power base as the best opportunity to enter the Tree Hill Forbidden Zone. Catherine left Lucerne with Emma Bell telling James that she was going to visit there sister Katia at Castle Trachtenburg, but members of the Circle who were beginning to suspect Catherine as a major member of the Yellow Dragons would send spies after her when she left.

Anna's Turn

Anna Kendrick Large Great1.jpg

All my friends greeted my like a queen returning from some distant war. They chatted endlessly about how poor the Cranes must have been. How savage the people. Every word they said was rude, or cruel in someway and I couldn't help but immediately wonder if this is who I was seen as.
Anna Kendrick

Working her way back into the most powerful of the noble girls in Brill it was Anna that this time felt conflicted by everything. Her time with with Orival had changed her view of herself and this made her depressed seeing the kind of person she was without him. This depression would bring her into contact with Taylor Swift of whom she apologized to for all the things that she had done to her in their life and this apology succeeded in bringing them closer together.

The Swift Family is a den of liars dear Anna. Taylor might be their worst member.
David Kendrick

Anna returning from another day out with Taylor this time having spent the day with her friend at the Dragonoph Temple where Taylor is rising quite high, and entering her house she is confronted by her father, brother and her brothers wife. Resisting her fathers demands to turn against Taylor Swift she is is shown a letter by her father that he says he has intercepted from House Crane to House Swift. Reading the letter it details that everything Orival Crane felt had all been a big manipulation in order to get revenge for what had happened to Taylor earlier. Questioning the letter her father reveals that Taylor Swift's mother is in fact a member of House Crane and everything was just a trick played by House Swift on her.

Failure
Anna's Revenge

Faced with the consequences of what Anna had revealed to the city it was Timone that summoned his entire family to a meeting including Florius Novellius. At this meeting it was a shocked House Swift that at first wanted to fight against the rumors and perhaps say that it wasn't true, but Florius stopped this when he told them that he wanted to take the fall for them. While at first resistant to this idea it was Theresa who having always hated Florius as a memory of his mother that would lead the call to take his advise and let him take the fall for all of this.

Telling the Truth

With Florius having been exiled from Forks in order to try and protect House Swift as best they could he prepared to leave the city. Florius in this moment was emotionally devastated but for his part was genuinely still in love with Taylor and thus would decide to attempt to protect her as best he could before he left the city and her life for good. Unable to meet with Taylor as she had been sent to Swiftvale to shield her from the immediate aftermath of the reveal of his identity it was Florius that decided to instead meet with Anna Kendrick and set the record straight.

I promise you Taylor that all the times we spent together were true. I wasn't fake then. I'm sorry that I was too weak. I'm sorry I proved you right about me.
Anna Kendrick

Search for Anselm Reichen

Main Article : Search for Anselm Reichen

The Search for Anselm Reichen
My brother has evidence that King James has authorized the return of slavery to our lands. Alongside what we believe we know about Tree Hill. This evidence ends his reign and allows William to rise to power.

Ester of Reichen Cover Amazing1.png

How can I accept this reality? How can I be a part of this?
Anselm Reichen

The trouble would begin when Anselm Reichen who had been sent by their father to the large Rostegharion Mine to work with their uncle was not fully understood as a person. While there it was Anselm that discovered the mine was using a slaves to mine, and then from the other guards there he learned it was far more widespread then that and eventually discovered the Rosenghard Slave Market which was located west of the city and contained thousands of slaves. While his family believed that he was a person of low moral character he had in fact become quite devout in Dragonoph and through this had a very strong opinion on slavery leading to his reaction being widely against what his family thought it would be. Disgusted with what he had found it was Anselm that was once again moved but this time sent westward to another area of slavery when he was sent to Castle Raddatz. Arriving there he was placed in charge of a mining operation east of the castle and it was here that he met Ester a young girl who was captured as a slave from what he realizes was the lands of House Eisenmenger. Spending time with Ester the two become very close with Anselm taking her on as a personal servant of sorts, treating her to the best he can but also using his power to ease the suffering of the slaves at his mine. As time goes by though and as he falls deeper in his affections for Ester he realizes that no amount of improvement on the lives of slaves can change there position unless they are released and thus he makes the decision to confront the leadership of the area. From his men he discovered that the man he would want to talk to in the area of the slave trade was Hunigild Raddatz and he would plan on confronting the slave trader.

At some point you have to forgive her. She is your wife.
Darion Scarlet

Arriving at the estate of Hunigild he planned on confronting him but was scared into withholding his anger and instead listened to Hunigild as he discussed how profitable it all was and this made him more angry but his anger became curiosity when Hunigild implied he had the protection of the king himself. Pushing on this he learned that Hunigild had a letter giving him the protection of James and the drunk Hunigild would even make the mistake of showing Anselm the letter. In a moment of pure anger Anselm would knock out Hunigild and then silently left the estate with the stolen letter in his possession. Leaving by horse he rode back to his camp where he released Ester and promiced to take her home. Traveling eastward attempting to return to her family at Castle Eisenmenger the two would bond on the road becoming more romantically attached as the days went by. One night while camped on a hilltop they saw fires and horses traveling the same path they had come through and realized that they were being followed forcing them back to the road. Eventually as they reached the Tower of Vhelministron it was Anselm that would give the horse to Ester telling her to leave without him, and she did this reluctantly with the two kissing goodbye. Accepting his fate it was Anselm that would hide the letter in a hole near the tower and then walked to the road where he waited until his peruors reached him and took him prisoner. Brought back to Castle Raddatz he was placed in a cell and due to Hunigild being aware that Anselm had the letter he would not allow his release, but a slave delivering him food knew of what he had done for Ester and took a letter he wrote to his sister Elsa and had it sent to Esla at Castle Reichen.

Meeting there it is not just Catherine Lovie inside but also several prominent nobles from Forks in the form of Volker Yernese, Dennis Yernese, Arthur Fordale, Edric Fordale, William Black II., and Jacob Black. As everyone sits down its Catherine that introduces a girl named Elsa Reichen. Elsa tells them the story of Anselm Reichen and everything that happened to her on the way to finding Catherine and this leads to Catherine revealing the reason for Saiden being brought to them. With the story told its Catherine that the reason for Saiden being brought to them is that his marriage to Septimia will allow for him and a small force to be able to travel south without being questioned by what is an almost lock-down Rosenghard area. With Saiden unwilling to disappoint Catherine he accepts this offer but refuses to say anything to Septimia after the end of the meeting simply leaving and returning to see Hanna and Lianna.
