Ducia Constantine is the daughter of Amulius, and Helvetia Komnenos making her a member of House Komnenos. Phillipicus Constantine III. would be married to Duccia Komnenos in a marriage that secured the Dutchy of Trebizond to his brothers side and following this they have a relatively strong marriage if not one filled with love.

Phillipicus would be sent by his brother to parlay with the Theme of Trebizond where the leadership of the theme was leaning towards the support of the Sons of Constantine but was hesistent due to the overwhelming population of Turks within its borders, but due to the work of Phillipicus they would agree to a marriage union between Phillipicus and Duccia Komnenos and allowed Phillipicus free reign in destroying the turks of Trebizond. As Duccia and Phillipicus came to settle into their marriage in Anatolia and the violent side of Phillipicus became more and more obvious to her she made the choice to support him and in this way she begin to import slaves to the court where the city of Adana became known for their especially violent gladiatorial games which helped to sate much of Phillipicus's violent tendencies.

History

Early History

Byzantine Turkish Rebellion

Main Article : Byzantine Turkish Rebellion

The Byzantine Turkish Rebellion
I am not sorry for what I have done. I may have failed to stop you but I die knowing I did everything I could to try and stop you. All those cowards who stayed silent will soon wish they had tried as hard.
Natashia Constantine Cover3
I told you they were traitors. My father lies dying and they have called their armies. What does that show you?
Antonio Constantine IV.

Philipicus would be recalled to the capital following the death of his father Julian and once there he would swear his loyalty to his brother and would join his brother in fighting the Byzantine Turkish Rebellion. Following the death of Julian Constantine and the rebellion of the Turks the situation was spiraling out control with the Turkish rebels having control of three themes and contesting two more leaving the forces of the Sons of Constantine backed into a corner and with the Turks besieging several cities throughout the empire Antonio's retribution had to be quick and decisive in order to stop the Turks from gaining victory. While the armies of Byzantine rallied it would be Natashia Constantine now standing as the Queen of the Byzantine Empire that would take control of one area of the conflict in the Aegean Islands when she would gain the permission of her husband to regain the Theme by whatever means she found neccessary. In order to do this Natashia Constantine would give rise to her two brothers when she had Antonio name them counts of two turkish held titles in the Aegean Dutchy and in this way Vitiges, and Mitiges rallied a large Ostrogoth force to their side and invaded the Aegean Islands destroying the two turkish counties and planning to create their own houses and counties from the ashes.

Fighting in Trebizond

Duccia Constantine2
Go to Trebizond my brother. Go there and secure that theme for us. Secure it and then make all haste to Anatolia.
Antonio Constantine IV.

After having sworn his loyalty Phillipicus Constantine III. would be sent by his brother to parlay with the Theme of Trebizond where the leadership of the theme was leaning towards the support of the Sons of Constantine but was reluctant due to the overwhelming population of Turks within its borders. Arriving in the Trebizond capital of Trebizond he would meet with the Doux in the form of Amulius Komnenos II. and the two would spend hours talking with Phillipicus showing great skill in understanding what Amulius needed and thus offered himself up for marriage to Amulius's daughter, and also offered to lead a non Trebizond army into Trebizond and crush the Turkish population of the Doux. Agreeing to both Phillipicus would marry Duccia Constantine in a short ceremony and following having their bedding rights the two would spend a few hours together where Phillipicus promiced to keep her safe and always protect her and despite having only met hours earlier they would form a bond and when he left she would say that she would miss him. Following this wedding Phillipicus would rally a force of some four thousand provincial troops from Niccae, and nearly five thousand more volunteer troops from Trebizond and using these forces entered Trebizond and basically went from town to town, village to village massacring the Turkish population of whom initially put up little fight but resisted heavily in the county of Chaldia where the Turkish Metropolitan's Kazim Ogri, and Umur Sadik rallied their towns in defence.

Battle of Samsun

With Phillipicus having all but destroyed the Turkish population of Trebizond it fell to two areas in the form of the counties of Samsun, and Malatya to hold out as streams of Turks fled eastward into their counties and it was at the town of Samsun where the Turks would rally their forces and prepare for the arrival of Phillipicus.

Battle for Anatolia

Main Article : Battle of Polybotos

I wonder if you believe my father deserved to die that way? Did my father who had served his entire life loyally to your father deserve to be dishonored that way? You did things to him that mean he may never go to heaven. Did he deserve that?
Ehli Uzer

Following the collapse of the Turkish fronts in both the Aegean Islands, and Trebizond the main wave of Byzantine attack came against the Turks in Anatolia where they had placed the Sons of Constantine city of Polybotos under siege, and it was here where the major Battle of Polybotos would arise. Salik Uzer would be executed alongside his son Tarkan and dozens of prominent Turkish nobles and commanders following the disastrous Turkish defeat at the Battle of Polybotos, and following his execution Salik would become the new head of House Uzer and led the broken turkish forces back to Adana.

Battle of Adana
With the fall of this city we paint our destiny in the stars. The Turkish traitors are no longer a threat to us. It is our time. It is the time of Byzantium now.
Antonio Constantine IV.

Ehli Uzer would be within the walls of Adana when the armies of Byzantine arrived following their victory during the Battle of Polybotos where the Turks under her father had been defeated nearly completely and she would support her brother as he led the defense of the city and refused to leave the city even as it became clear that her brother could not succeed at successfully defending the city. During the Byzantine Turkish Rebellion Phillipicus would lead a cohort of troops into the fighting and took part in the sack of Adana where he would rape Ehli Uzer and planned to kill her but was interrupted by his brother Antonio of whom kept Ehli safe feeling regret for what he had done.

Settling into Anatolia

As Duccia and Phillipicus came to settle into their marriage in Anatolia and the violent side of Phillipicus became more and more obvious to her she made the choice to support him and in this way she begin to import slaves to the court where the city of Adana became known for their especially violent gladiatorial games which helped to sate much of Phillipicus's violent tendencies.

Invasion of Armenia

Hattian Uprising

Main Article : Hattian Uprising

Laknasu Antulu would instigate his years of planning as the Byzantine attacks on the western Armenian forts achieved success and led to the Armenian forces moving to reinforce the front line, and as his plan moved into its start he mobilized thousands of the most elite of his Hattian forces for the event known as the Hattian Coup of Armenia. During the Hattian Uprising it was Laknasu that would lead the butcher of the town of Talin which stood as his birth place but had become the site of his hatred of the Armenians and during this massacre he started the total war attitude that would permiate the Armenian front when he ordered the killing of men, women, and children leaving no quarter. Inna Kalanth would lead one of the most brutal actions of the Hattian Uprising when she led the assault on the city of Satik where having eliminated the military garrison in a series of brutal killings and ambushes she would be present when they unconditionally surrendered, but as per her orders she would execute all the Armenians in the city leaving none alive.

Fall of Talin

Elise Balabanian would be in the Armenian city of Talin during the Byzantine-Nehekhara War and when the Byzantine forces surrounded the city she took command of the defense after much of the Hattians in the city begin rioting but once she did this the hattians showed the rioting was just to show who would take control and Elise would be killed alongside the entirety of the Armenian leadership of Talin.

Treaty of Antioch

Bartev would be sent to Sirat following the collapse of western Armenia by his father who wanted Bartev to convince the Wiras of Turkey Ediz Sokmen to force the Musir of the Nehekhara forces fighting the Byzantines that the fight was over and to sue for peace. Arriving at Sirat it was Bartev that brought the letter of his father to Ediz and he found Ediz was in a state of panic as the Byzantines had been able to capture the fortress of Antioch and fearing his own position at Sirat it was Ediz that supported the call for peace from Garen Manvellian and would travel alongside Bartev to Aleppo where Nadir-Musir Ugurlu was leading the defense of Aleppo.
