House Highdor

Conrad Highdor is the son of Dagobert, and Anselma Highdor making him a member of House Highdor.

Johan Highdor would lead the forces of House Highdor alongside his liege lord of House Lowport into the Journey and during this conflict it was House Highdor that showed well for themselves fighting at all the major battles, but during the Second Battle of Tree Hill it was Conrad Highdor that would suffer a horrible injury and lost his vision due to the injuries marring what was otherwise a succussful venture for House Highdor. Following the death of Reingard Highdor it was Conrad that would become the new heir of House Highdor but having become maimed during the Second Battle of Tree Hill it was Conrad who rejected this placing himself out of the line of succession and leaving his son Gangolf Highdor as the new heir to House Highdor. Conrad would take lead of a large force from Southend taking with him his son Oswald as the Kingdom of Lucerne sent into the Ravenna region this force posing as volunteers assisting the rebellion movement of the area against Rome and in this way was commanded to work at organizing and coordinating in preparation for what would be an increasingly large Lucerne Volunteer force.

The Independence of Ravenna
I can from this moment forward see no reason except for blind faith that we should follow these corupt politicians in Rome. They do not care about anything but power anymore. I say to you who gave them the right? Who gives them the authority if not us. And if we may not command them, then I saw we command ourselves.

Yvonne Pullo

Ravenna had become the centerpiece of the northern defence of the Italian Peninsula, and yet despite this their calls to be given more clout at the Senate of Rome. These calls were led by the Lady Yvonne Pullo of whom was the bastard born daughter of Titus Pullo but of whom had been raised to noble born by the Emperor himself on the words of Lucius Vorenus, and despite all of this she was treated with extreme disrespect over her bastard birth, and also for being from Ravenna of which was treated as a far flung colony by the Senators in Rome. Yvonna would go to her father's friend Lucius of whom had been the main reason for her rise from a bastard, and she found he was severely curtailed by the Senators of whom hated him for his resistence to their words. Realizing that without Lucius she would have no chance of seeing the Emperor she attempted to go to an actual Senate Meeting but was rejected from entering due to her Sicilian birth, and the other Ravennian's with her were extremely discusted to the point that it nearly came to violence, but Yvonna would pull them back and stopped it. Yvonne would leave with the Ravenna delegation and return to the fortress where she reported alongside the others about their mistreatment by the Roman Senators, and not long after this they learned of the Sack of Rome.

It was coruption that sacked Rome, not the Ratmen.
Titus Pullo

Following the sacking of Rome the leadership of the city of Ravenna would come together in order to meet on this issue, and as this meeting was being prepared Yvonna, would gather together some of her main supporters and would deliver a speach to them of which watched on by her father would convinse them to leave the Roman Empire and found their own Kingdom where they would all have a voice. As the meeting went forward Yvonne backed by her supporters and with her father standing behind her she was able to convinse the remaining nobles that she had what it took to lead them out of the problems of the Roman Empire and into a better future as an independant kingdom.

Siege of Vicoforte

As the work of Conrad Highdor facilitated an increasingly organized Dragonoph "Volunteer" force it was Johan Highdor who expanded this when he led a fleet of seven ships into the area and took control of the port of Vicoforte after a short siege where the defending Roman troops were caught by surprise by the arrival of such large frigates and rather then be subjected to bombardment from the sea they put up a white flag.

Battle of Monesi

Volundy Tullius would take control of the town of Mendatica during the Independance of Ravenna and during this conflict he made several raids against the Roman center of control town of Monesi and these attacks forced the Roman fleet there to be constantly leaving a garrison larger then they would have hoped to leave.

Expanding Control

Arnhilda Highdor would be sent by the Order of the Blue Dragon to assist her father Conrad and the expedition that had traveled into Ravenna and for Arnhilda this was her first command as a recently promoted Guardian in the order she took with her fifty Blue Dragon men at arms and entered the Ravenna region making her headquarters in Vicoforte alongside her uncle.
