Children True Born

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 Bill 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 Bill 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 Bill Lovie. This role caused her a lot of problems with Bill Lovie and on many occasions he threatened to have her killed but she believed in her heart that what little humanity remained in Bill wouldn't allow him to harm her, as even in his madness he showed a remarkable care for his internal family outside of Sean, and Alice. Esme Portmane would return to Lucerne during the peak of Bill 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 Bill 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.

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 Bill 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.

Arrival of Ar-Brentey

Britney Hemsworth5.jpg

Brentey Hemsworth came to the land of Lucerne with a purpose. At first I thought it was marriage, and it was for this reason that I dismissed her so quickly. It was only later that I realized she actually cared for me on a deep level.
William Lovie III.

James Lovie had a loyal messenger in Arnor at the time who sent him the news 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 much better option then most of the other options so Jonas agreed, and Brentey was planned to be sent to Lucerne to get to know William so they could make sure it would work. 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.

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

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.

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.

You must release my brother. If I leave here without him the cost to you will be very high.
Elsa Reichen

Elsa would take this information and without telling her father who she knew to be a loyalist to this new way of excistence she traveled to Castle Raddatz with just her husband and several men at arms to accompany them.

Turning to the Rebellion

Having given up on breaking her brother out of Castle Raddatz she would travel to Hardhill where she told Edric what her brother had learned and this led to Edric traveling to Forks with her to meet with Charles Swan who then sent the group to meet with Catherine.

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

While they are spending time together at Lake Clonvan they are interrupted by the arrival of Hubert of Scarlet who tells Saiden that Lady Catherine Lovie is at Clonvan speaking with his family and he has been asked to attend this meeting. Arriving at the meeting he is shocked to be met at the door into the room by Septimia, and his brother Darion. Seeing Septimia brings Saiden back to the events of the Pantose Coup which he thinks about in pure anger as she attempts to apologize, and Darion attempts to calm him down. After several minutes of this Saiden has calmed down enough to speak to Septimia but as he berates her they are stopped by the arrival of Renault who brings them into the meeting hall. 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.

The Search Begins

Lianna Scarlet-En.jpg

I need you to go south and find me that proof. I understand your issues with your wife, but duty to your prince is what must be considered.
Catherine Lovie

Preparing to leave for the south its Lianna that knocks on the door and greets her father with a hug which Saiden believes is a goodbye gesture but is proven wrong when she demands to come with him on the road south. After arguing with Lianna for a time about not coming she makes it clear she and her husband are coming with him whether its official or not so it would be in their best interest to just accept that.
