Domeric Bolten is the son of Roose, and Barbrey Bolten making him a member of House Bolten through his father, and a member of House Ryswell through his mother and the second in line to inherit the throne of the Kingdom of Bolten. Domeric has one half brother in the form of Ramsey Bolten of whome he has attempted to become close to but Ramsey's nearly psychopathic behavior has led to very little relationship with Domeric who is a generally kind and generous young man. Domeric Bolten would be married to Ella Urnet following the events of the conflict between House Karstarke and House Johanston as a means of trying to bring him closer to their side but the two never grew close thus not helping the situation. Ella Urnet, and Domeric Bolten would together have two children in the form of Theodoric, and Isa Bolten of which Theodoric was the heir of House Bolten following the death of his father but this changed when Ramsay murdered Theodoric and Roose Bolten, while Isa was a young girl at the time of the death of her father and would be saved and taken away from the bloodbath that became the capital by her mother Ella.

Domeric was born as the only legitmate son of Roose Bolten and as a young boy he was noted for his kindness, and general good behavior of which was added to his generally exceptional skill at anything he attempted. Spending his youth as a squire at Hornwood he would show exceptional skill at jousting and swrod play, and he won several squire tournaments during tis time and it was a victory at a large tournament at the Dreadfort that got him knighted. He was knighted in a ceremony at the age of fifteen and from that point on this deviation became even more pointed, and their was a level of devotion agmonst the population that made him border on a living god. Domeric as he grew up became quite the contrast to much of the rest of House Bolten in that he is known for his kindness, and generocity while the rest of the family had a very dark and menacing reputation built over the years. This behavior has led to his somewhat decline in importance to many of the higher members of House Bolten but he is without a doubt the most popular member of the Kingdom of Bolten. This popularity is something that is music to the ears of Roose Bolten whose heir in Ramsey Bolten is extremely unpopular, and nearly completely unhinged mentally. This contrast has led to a devide in House Bolten between those who support the softer approach of Domeric, and those who like the old ways which appears to be campagined for by Ramsey Bolten. Domeric Bolten would survive the retreat of the Bolten army and he would return to Dreadfort to meet with his father about the outcome of the first conflict with lucerne. Following this they would hear about the destruction and capture of the Bolten army at Green Creek. Domeric would at this point believe that his cousin had defected to the Lucernians and would be forced to accept that amongst his family he was now alone. Following this Hornwood would come under assault by House Locke and Domeric would resieve a call for aid from House Hornwood of whom was very loyal to him, and he knew he couldn't leave them to their own. Domeric would go to the Dreadfort with his army to get more forces and during this time he met for the last time with both Arianne Whitewood his long time love, and his father Roose Bolten of whom both attempted to disuade him. Despite his father, and Arianne attempting desperatly to make Domeric stay in Dreadfort Domeric would travel with his personal forces towards Hornwood where he did not know that Ramsey Bolten waited with a force of his own. Due to his speed he arrived well ahead of the rest of his forces and would meet with the leaders of House Locke. As he met with them he was ambushed by Ramsey Bolten who had set this entire attack up so that he could kill his brother Domeric. Domeric attempted to reason with his brother but Ramsey wouldn't hear it and would hang Domeric from a tree alongside the rest of his vangaurd. Despite his death Domeric would be perhaps the most instrumental figure in the war following this point as his death angered most of the loyalist elements of the Kingdom of Bolten including House Cole and House Hornwood of which both would turn to the Lucernians and leave Bolten.

Characteristics

Personality

Domeric was a man of virtue and honor, and because he had not married he had completely devoted himself to the defence of Bolten and for this reason he had little female interactions or relationships despite his kind personality and his beloved reputation in Dreadfort. Domeric during his youth was briefly bethrothed to Ellesandra Hayford but this was rejected when Domeric and her did not get along during a brief meeting.

History

Early History

House Bolten
His birth was a sign from the gods that their was hope for my house. He was the perfect knight, and silently I longed for his growth in the house. House Bolten could only remain in the Ramsey side of the ledger for so long until eventually someone took an axe and barried it in our head.
Roose Bolten

Domeric was born as the only legitmate son of Roose Bolten and as a young boy he was noted for his kindness, and general good behavior despite the increasingly moralistically failing House Bolten enviroment. He was knighted in a ceremony at the age of fifteen and from that point on this deviation became even more pointed. His tale was told by the people of the Kingdom of Bolten who had spent generations afraid of the excesses of House Bolten and saw him as their first chance at a normal existence. Domeric as it can be seen from the above is quite the contrast to much of the rest of House Bolten in that he is known for his kindness, and generocity, while others like his bastard brother are known for their sadism. This behavior led to his somewhat decline in importance to many of the higher members of House Bolten but he is without a doubt the most popular member of the Kingdom of Bolten. This became even more noticeable as his half brother Ramsey Bolten arrived at the Dreadfort after his horrible mother convinsed him that he was the most capable man in the Kingdom.

Ramsey Bolten

Most people are good and occasionally do something they know is bad. Some people are bad and struggle every day to keep it under control. Others are corrupt to the core and don’t give a damn, as long as they don’t get caught. But evil is a completely different creature, Ramsey. Evil is bad that believes it’s good. I fear you my brother are evil.
Domeric Bolten

At first Domeric attempted to become friends with his brother Ramsey and when he was greeted by disdain, and several attempts at killing him most would have stopped but Domeric continued to try and get through to his brother that he was no threat to him. When his father finally intervened after Domeric nearly died from being poisoned Domeric accepted that his brother was lost in his mind, and thus he accepted this and begin to move on.

The Near War

Domeric and Ella

Ella Urnet would become a major figure in the Karstark-Johanston conflict as she would be chosen as the girl that would marry Domeric Bolten in what the leadership of the Kingdom of Bolten believed could finally bring Domeric closer to their side of things and further away from the Coles, and Hornwoods, and thus in this way she would be sent to the Dreadfort to spend time with Domeric.

Meeting at the Dreadfort

Main Article : Dreadfort Meeting of 5136

The Bolten Decision
I thought if I supported you, then you would stop. I thought you could be bargained with Ramsey. I was so wrong. I should have never supported you. I should have supported my only true son.
Rodrik Cassel
I wanted him to stop. I spoke to him with all the love I had in me for my brother, and yet all it did was make him believe I wanted him dead. What was there left for me when he refused reason.
Domeric Bolten

Domeric Bolten would travel to Hornwood so that he could attend a tournament they were holding there, and also so that he could see Halys Hornwood and his family of whom he knew very well and loved as his own family. Arriving there Halys would tell him that he had sent some of his men to follow Ramsey Bolten around, and from this had discovered that Ramsey had a small keep north of the Dreadfort and would use it to capture, chase, and then rape and kill women. Learning this as well as the plans that Ramsey was beggining to form alongside the power he was gaining Domeric would return to the Dreadfort with Halys, and several of the Hornwood vassals. Domeric and his party would meet Rodrik Cassel a little west of Hornwood where he was awaiting more boats for transport for himself and his vassals, and from Rodrik they learned that followed Domeric leaving the Dreadfort Ramsey had called a meeting of the Kingdom of Bolten, and Rodrik was already running late.

When we met Rodrik Cassel on the road it was a chance meeting. We weren't moving at a very high speed, and had we not of we would have taken the land route instead of the boat with him, and we would have missed the meeting.
Domeric Bolten

Taking a ride with the Cassel force Domeric and the Hornwood forces would reach the Dreadfort days before they would if they had been marching, and would arrive just hours before the meetings were to begin. Domeric would have a long talk with Josh Cole of whom warns Domeric that the Karstark's and the Urnet's are solidly behind Ramsey and that he and his forces will not follow Domeric into a conflict they cannot win. Hearing of the Karstark's joining with Ramsey Domeric meets with Halys Hornwood but finds he has come with a sickness and can barely move forcing Daryn Hornwood to join the meeting as the head of House Hornwood. Arriving at the meeting Ramsey, and Mallador Locke would taunt Daryn over the sickness of his father and would carefully make it known that they were the reason behind the sickness. The arrival of Trevor Hayford would stall the argument and they all entered the Dreadfort Keep where the meeting took place.

Domeric Bolten Cover
Ramsey was chaos, while Domeric was order. It will forever be the great shame of this land that we allowed chaos to grow. We all stood and watched as Domeric resisted, and was struck down. We all sat and we all watched as Chaos was allow to do that. We should be ashamed.
Daryn Hornwood

Entering the meeting the assembled noblemen would hear a speach from Roose Bolten which to the shock of many inside the room was praising towards Ramsey, and slightly insulting towards Domeric. This speach did much to turn many of those who might have followed Domeric, and turned them towards listening to Ramsey instead. Following this Rickard Karstark spoke of growing attacks by Dragonoph fanatics sent by the Kingdom of Lucerne against the western border of the Karstark lands, and Domeric would stand during this and tell the assembled that these attacks were not happening. Ramsey would attack Domerics honor and call him a liar who was secretly in the pay for the Lucernians which noone believed but turned the attention away from the lie about the Lucernian attacks on the Karstarks. Daryn Hornwood did his best to speak on the side of Domeric but was shouted down by the Locke's and Urnets of whom laughed at Daryn and rediculed his lands, and his weakened father. As things broke down and it became clear that Ramsey was going to have the war he wanted, Domeric would look across at Josh Cole and saw him smiling sadly at him, and as the meeting ended Domeric went after Josh Cole and spoke with him alongside Daryn Hornwood. Josh Cole told Domeric once again that the Cole's were not willing to die for some wasted war that the insane Ramsey Bolten wanted, and that Josh Cole was not going to do it, and Domeric realizing this could mean turning to the Lucernians, or staying neutral attempted to persaude him, but despite respecting Domeric there was no agreement from Josh.

I could litteraly feel the moment when hope died. He stood and he told everyone there a giant lie, and they all believed him. I knew the truth, and I knew what would happen if we did this. I knew their numbers. I knew their quality. I knew a lot about the Kingdom of Lucerne, and I knew that we were not a match for them. Not now.
Domeric Bolten

Domeric in that moment knew things were darkening in Bolten, and warned Daryn to take his father and their vassals and return to Hornwood and prepare the army because he would need them when the time came. Doing this Domeric was left alone and went to see his father of whom would be in his throne room with Rickard Karstark. Speaking with the two of them Domeric got the sence that neither agreed with Ramsey, but couldn't get them to tell him why they had sided with him, but Roose did tell Domeric that he needed to follow Ramsey this time, or else. When he resisted this Roose would command it as his king, and knowing the honor bound Domeric would follow this he left the room with the horrifying thought of having to follow Ramsey and his madness.

Battle of Green Creek
The fool camped for an entire day on the words of a man he hated. He deserved what came on him that night. My only regret was the fact that I wasn't the one that got to kill the Bastard of Bolten myself.

Jordin Bolten

What Ramsey did not anticipate was the fact that the moment that Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, Britt Lancave and Hedrik Clegane returned to Koenisburg they sent a raven to Jamie Lannister telling him to move against the Boltens. Ramsey had not realized that Jordin Bolten had joined his army but discovered his presence and begin to plot to kill Jordin. Jordin would at this point follow the commands of his cousin Domeric and begin to attempt to feed the mind of Ramsey with increasing amounts of lies. Jordin would tell Ramsey that he and Domeric had gotten into a fight and he was done with Domeric, and wanted to be close to the real leadership of Bolten in the form of Ramsey. So as Jordin gained slight influence he begin to say how under Domeric he had founded a scouting force which was the main reason Domeric had always been so succesful, and from this he knew all the comings and goings of the Divine Lands. So as they moved further northward and prepared to attack the town of Pomlet Jordin slowed them by saying he knew the location of scouts for Pomlet and took them on a massive route that delayed them significantly from where they would have been. As the delays continued Jordin knew that Jamie Lannister was close when a lucernian scout entered the Bolten camp and met with Jordin.

This was the moment where I picked sides. After this there would be no returning to Bolten, and my life here was at an end. I could only hope that Ramsey's death would lead to Domeric gaining control and I knew he would do what was right for the people.
Jordin Bolten

The scout was a man of Lannister named Toren of Castamere of whom told Jordin that the Lannister/Grandlen army was very close, and that they needed Jordin to move the Bolten army to a riverbed which would allow them to trap them, and destroy the army. Jordin would give the man a list of names, and banners of which he would pain with red on their tents and these men should be spared by any means necessary, and also he told Toren that Ramsey specifically could not survive. Following the departure of the scout Jordin would wake Ramsey in the middle of the night of whom was torturing some poor village girl in his tent, and would tell Ramsey that his scouts had discovered a lucernian force nearby and they needed to move quickly in the morning to a riverbed of which they would be able to hide and perhaps even ambush the lucernians.

We all heard about the destruction of the Boltens at Green Creek, and that was the end of the war from a public standpoint. From that point forward the Boltens moved from disaster to disaster.
William Lovie III.[src]

The following morning the forces of Lucerne would move at full speed towards the riverbed where they knew Jordin would move them, and at the same point Jordin would have moved the entire Bolten army to the riverbed where he then told them the Lucernians had passed by them but they needed to remain where they were so that they could ambush the Lucernians from behind. Jordin would be commanded by Ramsey to have all the men sleep, so that when they attacked the Lucernians they would be at full strength, and Jordin silently laughed as Ramsey collapsed any chance of defence for the Boltens.

The Massacre

Battle of Green River
I knew the moment we were attacked that Jordin had betrayed us, and from that point forward I knew that Domeric needed to pay for what had happened to me.
Ramsey Bolten[src]

Jamie Lannister and his three thousand cavalry would smash into the camp of Ramsey Bolten and in less then twenty minutes nearly the entire force was massacred. The four thousand infantry from Grandlen reached the camp midway through the battle and complete the massacre, and also make sure that they took control of the remaining noblemen that had been marked with red tents by Jordin during the night. It was as everything was falling apart that Ramsey Bolten would switch clothes with his servent Reek of whom he would smash the face of beyond any recegnition so that he could not be found to be not him. Reek had been known for being constantly covered in human refuse, and other garbage and thus to make himself look more like Reek so that he could get away with the swap. When Jamie entered the tent of Ramsey attempting to kill Ramsey or take him prisoner he found nothing but the supposed Reek standing over the destroyed body of "Ramsey Bolten". In that moment Jamie went to kill Reek but was stopped by Jordin Bolten who said to let Reek go as he was nothing but a slave they had captured from the Greyjoy's years past. Trusting Jordin Jamie would let "Reek" go and thus Ramsey Bolten escape the battle and made his way back to the Dreadfort.
