|Mother||† Jernei Targaryan|
Deneyres Targaryan is the youngest daughter of Aryes, and Jurnei Targaryan making her a principle member of House Targaryan. Deneyres has two siblings in Viserys, and Rhaegar Targaryan of which her brother Rhaegar is basically the Emperor of Dragonstone and is the most influencial person in the empire while also one of the most skilled, and her brother Viserys is a skilled young man but his obsession with Deneyes caused him to be removed from Dragonstone and he now rules over his own fortress. Deneyres Targaryan would be betrothed for a time to her brother Viserys Targaryan and the two would be married for a time before his sexual tendencies led to the annulment of their marriage and Deneyres rising as a more independent women. Deneyres and Viserys had one child together in the form of Viserys Targaryan IV. of whom was only two months old when he passed away in what was revealed as an accident but Deneyres believed it was violence by Viserys and this led to the end of their marriage and his all but banishment from the capital.
Deneyres was born many years after the rise of House Targaryan within Dragonstone, and for this reason she is a member of House Targaryan that is growing in number that have no recolection of living in the valley of Lucerne. She was raised effectively by her mother and father of which her father Aryes Targaryan III. was her favorite because he told her constant stories of the beauty of the valley of Lucerne and the amount of love and adortion that they had in that place. In this way Deneyres became quite enthusiastic in her belief that one day she wanted to visit the vaunted temple of the Dragon east of Tree Hill which contained the estate of House Targaryan and statues of nearly every famous member of House Targaryan. Deneyres Targaryn is dragonborn just like her older brother Rhaegar and in this way she will one day ride one of the Dragons of the Targaryans as they move towards their eventual expansion into Westros, and Croatia. She has become attatched to two young dragons that she hatched and in this way treats them as her children for all intensive purposes. Along with this she has become somewhat of a leader for the dragonborn members of House Targaryan in that the Dragons of all types seem to react to her with extreme love and devotion on a level past even Rhaegar Targaryan. Deneyres following this success of the raising of the Dragons would travel westward with Red Wind and several other nobles of Dragonstone where they would plan to take offers of alliances to the Kingdom of Lucerne. Arriving in Lucerne from boats purchased in Pontus they would meet with many of the nobles of the land and make Lucerne very much aware of how much they wished to reasert their ancient alliances with Lucerne. Spending weeks in Lucerne she would eventually return to Dragonstone with a letter for Rhaegar from King William Lovie III., and promices that the two would be close friends. Deneyres under the directive of the Emperor would move westward while her brother Rhaegar moved south and her cousins and others moved northward. Deneyres would meet with the villages of the area and incorperated large numbers of these into her growing force including several high nobles of the area of whom became fanatically devoted to her including Jorah Mormont, and Christopher Von Plutter. Her expansion into the west went brilliantly until they arrived at the lands of the Kingdom of Nordling of whom was not intimidated by the Dragon of Deneyres and fought bitterly against her forces. Finding the situation deterioating and the Nordlings gaining ground due to alliances with several other kingdoms Deneyres would call to her brother for help, and he arrived to meet with the Nordlings. After the meeting failed utterly they would attempt to defeat the capital of Nordling but were pushed back, and eventually Rhaegar was forced to retreat as well to deal with the Trollocs in the south.

- "I used to love the stories of how beautiful, and tuanquil our homes in the valley of Lucerne were, and I longed to see it. In a lot of ways the fanatical devotion with which he spoke of his love influenced my strong beliefs, but in other ways my father filled me with a vigor, and a love for a land that I had no hope of ever knowing in the way he described it."
- -Deneyres Targaryan
Deneyres was born many years after the rise of House Targaryan within Dragonstone, and for this reason she is a member of House Targaryan that is growing in number that have no recolection of living in the valley of Lucerne. She was raised effectively by her mother and father of which her father Aryes Targaryan III. was her favorite because he told her constant stories of the beauty of the valley of Lucerne and the amount of love and adortion that they had in that place. In this way Deneyres became quite enthusiastic in her belief that one day she wanted to visit the vaunted temple of the Dragon east of Tree Hill which contained the estate of House Targaryan and statues of nearly every famous member of House Targaryan.
Deneyres Targaryn at the age of six went through the customary dragonborn test of House Targaryan. The test relies on the fact that those born with the dragonblood in them are immune to damage from fire, and in this way the tested Targaryan is made to hold an ancient heated dragon age which would scald a normal non-dragonborn person but for a dragonborn it wouldn't even affect them. When the egg touched Deneyres hand she felt immediate relief when she felt nothing. It was like she was holding nothing
more then an egg in her hand. With the realization that she was a dragonborn her family all piled in and she was showered with praise from all around. For Deneyres she held onto the Dragon's egg for long after the ceremony was over and finally her brother Rhaegar came to her wondering why she still held the egg. She told him how she believed that she could create a dragon from this egg, and that when she did it would prove to the people of Dragonstone that the Targaryans were worth their name. Rhaegar did not insult her goals and simply told her that she should not hang all her hopes on such things, and only accept what has been done before. Deneyres believed more after then she had before and this caused her to prepare a mighty ceremony for herself where she planned to bathe herself in fire, and through this she would mother the two eggs that she had prepared, while the third she would give to her cousin as a gift.
Coming of the Dragon
Main Article : Flenix Comes to Dragonstone
|The Coming of the Dragon|
I never believed truly that playing that harp would bring about anything more then good music.
The Targaryans had been alongside several other Lucernian houses given gifts by the White Dovah of Lucerne but the Targaryans themselves had been given an additional gift in the form of the Harp of Lucerne. The Harp was a Magi item created by the White Dovah of Lucerne and would allow the player of the harp if they held the blood of the Dragonborn to be able to communicate with a Dovah and thus basically summon a dragon to them. Having taken the harp with them when they fled Tree Hill the Targaryans had upon taking control of Dragonstone almost immediately begin attempting to use the Harp but discovered that it would not work for any of the Targaryans at that time. After years of failure the Targaryans gave up attempting to use the harp, and it was only on the sixteenth birthday that harp was brought back out when it was given to Rhaegar who loved history as a gift. There was some excitement about a new generation attempting to use the Harp but when Rhaegar used it no music played from the Harp just as before, and thus it was believed that still no one of Dragonborn blood had returned to House Targaryan. Rhaegar though for his part became obsessed with the idea of the Dovah returning and thus he would spend his considerable political capital as the heir of Dragonstone to rebuild and expand the Tower of Dragonstone which he turned into a great monument to Glaurung believing that Glaurung would view this tower as penance for whatever sin they had committed to make him no longer listen to them. Despite all of this work nothing seemed to work but despite constant failure it was Rhaegar that became more fanatical in finding a fix to the harp, which did not know had been sabotaged by the Green Dovah of High Forest on the order of Stragnarax. As time went on he was eventually joined in this by two other Dragonborn who like all Dragonborn were drawn to the harp, but these two in the form of Deneyres Targaryan, and Maella Aranyon were especially drawn to the harp and together the three played the harp together every day.
Flenix Moved South
Lornax would travel to the Green Dragonshire alongside a large force of White Dovah in order to meet with the Green Dovah there and discuss the changing situation, but while there he discovered from the Green Dovah Nassyra that the Targaryan Harp was in an Ostrogoth city called Dragonstone. While the rest of the White Dovah met at the Green Dragonshire he would travel to Dragonstone, and using Magi he took on a human image calling himself Visedor Valtigar and entering the city of Dragonstone in search of the Targaryan Harp. While traveling the city he discovered a high concentration of Dragonborn, and was shocked that the Harp had not attracted any Dovah with the power of some of the Dragonborn, but understood when he found the harp and discovered it had been sabotaged. Not knowing how to fix the damage he would return to the Green Dragonshire and attempt to find a way but discovered that it was the Green Dovah who had damaged the harp at the request of Stragnarax and were thus unwilling to help.While the remainder of the White Dovah returned to the White Dragonshire it was Lornax that would travel north to the Red Dragonshire where he planned to meet his friend Flenix who was the Ruby Prime of the Red Dragonshire and thus would know how to fix the damage. Arriving at the Red Dragonshire he discovered that his friend Flenix had self exiled himself, and after the meetings with the Red Dovah he left alone to find his friend Flenix. Flenix would spend much of his life following his departure from Ruby Dragonshire hiding from the increasingly powerful, and numerous humans of whom enjoyed killing Dragon of whom in the north were not treated with the reverence they were treated with in the south. Finding Flenix in Austria it was Flenix who revealed how to fix the harp and following the reveal of this information the two spent several months together, and realizing that Flenix was looking for something to fight for Lornax left Flenix for a time traveling south to Dragonstone where he now knew how to fix the harp. Entering Dragonstone again as Visedor Valtigar he would return to the harp, and prepared to fix it but found two young girls playing at the harp with a boy, and talking with the group they were revealed as Deneyres Targaryan, Maella Aranyon, and Rhaegar Targaryan and he could feel the Dragonborn power rolling off them, and thus using the Magi spell that Flenix had taught him he would fix the harp. Following fixing the harp he would touch each of them and using the fact that they were Dragonborn gained a control of them which he would plan to use once his plan came into effect. With the Harp repaired he returned to Flenix and over several months eventually Flenix was convinced by Lornax to end his isolation but unwilling to return to the Red Dragonshire and not allowed to come to the White Dragonshire due to Stragnarax's rules he would be convinced by Lornax to travel south to the Green Dragonshire in High Forest.
Coming of the Dragon
Flenix was by this point so exhausted that he was unable to to control his descent and landed in the northern part of the city on the small island that existed in the lake. The entire city flew to the spot he had crashed all wanting to see why it had crashed, and when Rhaegar arrived he was shocked at the condition the dragon was in. Flenix had passed out but Rhaegar was able to see that he had scars all over the one side of him, and he could barely lift his head, and with that came the fears that he might die. Rhaegar had been the first to get across on one of the small boats but only minutes after he had dissected the situation he was accompanied by others from the mainland, and together they attempted to help the Dragon.
Over the course of the hours that followed they begin bringing materials onto the island and over the following days as they tended to his wounds they constructed around him a makeshift wooden house where he would be allowed to heal. During this time Rhaegar the prince of Dragonstone was never far from his side, and alongside him his younger sister Deneyres Targaryan also became glued to the Dragon who had yet to raise his head or make any sign that he was alive other then the fact that he was breathing. Over the day nearly every noble would attempt to see the Red Dovah but eventually Deneyres would convince her brother Rhaegar to not let anyone else in, and that they needed to give the dragon time to heal itself thus leaving only Rhaegar, Deneyres, Maella inside the house with him. As time went by it was the simple singing of Deneyres that would wake the mighty red drake, and Deneyres begin to notice the dragon reacting to her voice. At first they just desperately wanted Flenix to drink or eat, and they were able to feed and let him drink thus getting him more strength. It was after nearly a week of this process that Flenix finally opened his eyes and ushered the first words to Deneyres Targaryan.
Flenix and Deneyres would talk for some time, and eventually Flenix was lured in by her promises of protection and a part of something more then just fleeing constant attacks from Dragon Hunters. With this Rhaegar would enter the tent followed by several members of House Targaryan and their allies of which each would promise that they would remain loyal to the dragon, and in this oath never turn away from this loyalty. The final one to enter was the old and sickly Aryes Targaryan III. of whom was carried in by Aegon, and Hanzal Targaryan and would rest himself on the floor in front of the mighty dragon, who by this point was now standing and walking throughout the island home. Aryes it is said wheeped in front of the dragon as he finally for the first time in his life came to realize that the pain and hardship that he had endured as a child was now possibly going to lead to something better. Flenix would move towards Aryes and would speak softly to the old leader of House Targaryan and basically promise himself to the members of House Targaryan until such point that their bloodline was spent, and thus become the first of the Dovah sworn to Dragonstone.
The Stormrain Dragon
Following his playing of the harp this first time unknown to the Targaryans the playing of the harp was a part of a spell that had been placed on the dragon egg held by House Stormrain and with the playing of the harp the Stormrain egg would hatch to the shock of House Stormrain. With the egg hatching the leadership of House Stormrain would move quickly into action with Aegon Stormrain II. preparing the long awaited ritual to discover a dragonborn among their number so that one of them would be able to ride the dragon and thus return themselves to the ranks of Lucerne.
Targaryan's come to Westbridge
Deneyres following this success of the raising of the Dragons would travel westward with Red Wind and several other nobles following the Lucernian capture of Westbridge. Arriving in Westbridge from boats purchased in Pontus they would meet with many of the nobles of the land and make Lucerne very much aware of how much they wished to reasert their ancient alliances with Lucerne. Spending weeks in Wesbridge she would eventually return to Dragonstone with a letter for Rhaegar from King William Lovie III., and promices that the two would be close friends.
Deneyres Goes West
|Deneyres Goes West|
I will go south and combat the monsters of the south. While I do this I need you to go west and expand the empire in the only place that seems possible. Take them through peace if possible, but if this fails. If peace fails burn them to our side.
Deneyres understood what the consequences were of being wrong about her choice, and thus she told noone about her plans. She begin to use the techniques that she saw her brother use on people and was over two months able to amass a dozen very loyal women Ostrogoths to her that she called the Dragon Brides in honor of the role that they would play in the coming event. She would also use her considerable money to purchase the services of several servents of whom would accompany her and her force. One of her primary Dragon Bridges and closest friends during this rise would be her cousin Daena Blackfyre of whom supported her on nearly every decision she made and convinced many to side with Deneyres. Her Dragon Brides who were led by the Magi Cirilla Starmgon were given the best of everything, and in this way she saw to both secure their love through her affection, and if that failed then the fact that she lavished them with gifts would be the fall back option of loyalty. With her Dragon Brides, and several other servants including Visenya Hegrivia, and Rhaella Rufyre of whom she recruited she left Dragonstone and went west towards the numerous villages west of the city. She would arrive in a small village called Tainin where she would plan to stay for a week before she was going to leave again further south into the badlands that seperated the Empire of Dragonstone from the Kingdom of Isengard. It was during this recruitment that she would meet two men that would change everything she thought she knew about life in the form of Jorah Mormont, and Christoph Von Plutter.
Time in Tainin
Jorah Mormont would be the first of the two that she would meet, and she met him upon entering Tainin as he was the local leader of sorts of the village. When Jorah saw her he was awe struck at her beauty and couldn't help himself but stare at her. She senced this and was at first turned off before she came to understand that he meant no harm by it. Jorah would make her arrangements for her, and found a house that was vacant for her and her company. That night as she rested in Tainin she and Jorah came to talk about things, and she came to great admiration for Jorah and everything he had been through in his life. Despire her reluctance to become bottled down in emotions she allowed him for a moment to see the real Deneyres before she returned to her persona. The next day she supplemented her forces by seducing the warriors of the village after she called her dragon to her, and the people of Tainin saw her dominance. As the week went on she and Jorah spent more and more time together as he became her steward of sorts, and it was on the final day that he asked her whether or not he could come with her. She thought about it but realized that if he came then she would be handcuffed in her ability to take the power she wanted, and this forced her into making the decision to reject his offer. This kindness didn't go unnoticed by Deneyres of whom told him that if ever he should need her help then all he had to do was ask. This would be the last the two would see of each other before she left the village but the reprucutions of their meeting would be felt in the near future.
Ambushed on the Road
As she left the village she would assemble her forces and send them ahead of herself believing she was safe in the lands. She was proven wrong when not a few hours of marching outside of the army she and her people didn't travel far before they were surrounded by a group of bandits. The group surrounded them and told Deneyres that they had been told by the villagers that they had passed through and that they wanted everything they had or they would all die. Deneyres and her Dragon Brides were not fighters yet and for this reason she reluctantly prepared to give in, when the man making demands fell to the ground with an arrow through the neck. A fight would break out as cloaked men appeared from the surrounding forests and attacked the bandits. When the dust settled the bandits lay dead, and the men that had defended her appeared in the road, before one of them stepped forward toward her, and bowed himself in front of Deneyres. The man introduced himself as Christoper Von Plutter and he told her that he led a small mercenary group west of the Empire of Dragonstone nearly in the badlands. He told her that he had sought her out and had been following her since she had left Dragonstone in the desire to protect her and allow her to complete her mission. Trust born in the face of darkness she would take on Chrisopher's council and would have him made into one of her trusted council. She and Christopher and the Dragon Brides would meet with the main army days later on the outskirts of Dorbirn the capital of the Kingdom of Ollen of which was the first true opponent on the road west.
|Invasion of Ollen|
Turn to the side of the Dragon or face the consequences. This does not have to end bloody, but trust me when I say that I will treat you as an opponent very soon.
Invasion of Ollen
Deneyres and her council were told by locals and agreed that House Orell of whom led the kingdom was extremely unpopular due to their tolerance of slavery within their borders and because of this the population while perhaps not openly revolting would be happy with a regime change. Reaching the outskirts of Dorbirn the army of Dragonstone would be met by envoys from the Ollen court of whom raised the white flag. Deneyres would meet with the fourth son of House Ollen of whom would demand the army leave their lands or else they would do battle where they would be defeated. Deneyres knew at this point from letters recieved that Flenix was on his way west to join Deneyres until the campaign ended, and thus she knew that if open battle was done the casualties would be immense for the Kingdom of Ollen. Warning the young member of House Ollen of the consequences if they should fight he would insult the Targaryan's before leaving, and in an act that would harm her later on she was unable to accept the hit to her families name and captured the young man refusing to let him go. The royals of House Ollen were outraged at the unlawful capture of a protected diplomat and would immediately raise the army of Ollen in order to battle the Dragonstone forces.
On the day before the battle was to take place Jorah Mormont would arrive on the field and told them of his connection to Nedest Sordin. He told Deneyres and the assembled council that he would be able to turn Nedest to their side once he told him about Deneyres dragon but others including Heath, and Aegon Targaryan warned her that if he was wrong then there main suprise in the dragons was gone. Trusting in the honesty of Jorah she would send him during the night alongside Daena Blackfyre and Christopher Von Plutter where they would use the tunnels beneath the city to infiltrate the lines. Finding themselves in the city they found their way to the estate of House Sordin, and once there they met with the surprised Nedest Sordin who Daena quickly discovered hated House Orell and was more then willing to turncoat against his masters in return for getting what he wanted. His ancient hold had been taken by House Orell and given to a cadet branch of House Orell called House Orell of Breebank of which would need to be destroyed and given to House Sordin in order for they to assist and also bring over their side. Daena being the only Targaryan would agree to this demand, and the group would leave with the knowledge that House Sordin was going to turncoat the following battle. Realizing that there was going to be a fight Deneyres would send word by raven to Dragonstone of this update, and plan for the battle to commence in several days. After the arrival of the Raven from Deneyres to the capital it was too late for any ground troops to be sent to assist Deneyres but assistance would be sent in the form of Liala Redwyne of whom left the capital on Senarion adding a second dragon to the ranks of Deneyres forces.
Following the agreement the army of Dragonstone assembled on the field while the large army of Ollen also assembled, and the two forces were somewhat equally matched with the advantage lying with the Targaryan forces. As the horns sounded nearly the entire left flank (which was even at the beginning somewhat removed from the main Ollen force) would move away from the forces of Ollen under the guidance of Nedest Sordrin of whom wanted his final revenge. With this the army of Ollen now surrounded on two sides would move to aim for both sides, and this was their plan until Deneyres flew over the side of the hills on the back of Flenix. What little resolve remained in the forces of Ollen disintegrated as those not fully invested turned tail and ran for the city, but the personal forces of House Ollen would turn their lines under the guidance of Sam Orell and would charge the lines of House Sordin. The army of Dragonstone charged the now greatly outnumbered forces of House Ollen and would smash into their rear crushing them from behind while they also fought on their front. During the fighting Sam Orell, his two oldest sons and many other loyalist nobles would be killed, but also Nedest Sordin and his heir would die during the fighting.
With the destruction of House Orell nearly completely outside of Sam Orell's wife and two daughters the war for Orell was all but over. In the north of the kingdom though a remnant in House Orell of Breebank continued to resist, and Deneyres would send an elite portion of the army north to take the town under the command of her cousin Aegon Targaryan II. Having been given command to restructure the Kingdom of Orell following its fall to her if that was what happened she would go about dissolving the Kingdom of Orell and forming the Dutchy of Orell of which came under the control of the Empire of Dragonstone. Changing controls in the capital she would make her uncle Aenis Blackfyre the count of the capital city which made House Blackfyre immediately one of the most powerful houses in the Dutchy. For the Dutchy itself following through on her promises she would place House Sordin as the Duke of the Dutchy but with the death of Nedest Sordin and his heir the eldest remaining member was Ophellia Sordin of whom was called to the Palace grounds of the capital where she would be sworn in during a large ceremony. Deneyres would remain in the capital of some time as she was also fored to await her cousin's success in Breebank before she finally moved on and planned to meet Aegon and his forces at the western border of Orell and from there prepare to deal with the Kingdom of Nordling which was the next point on the map.
