Edvard Caliman is the son of Lyman, and a tavern whore making him a legitimized but base born member of House Caliman.

Edvard Caliman would follow his father Lyman into the Bolten Invasion of the Divine Lands, and this was a major victory for Edvard as his rival Lyman Caliman II. was left behind as the steward of Castle Caliman. After the Bolten retreat from Koenisburg it was Edvard that was commanded by his father to travel to the Dreadfort and get his cousin Ottilia out of the city no matter what the cost. Arriving at the Dreadfort he consealed who he was and spent days scoping out the town for the best way out and as he finished his plans he approached his cousin telling her they were getting out and this was only stopped by the arrival of her parents and Edvard's aunt and uncle who had come to the city joining dozens of other nobles looking to get their children out of the Dreadfort. As the Executions took the lives of Willas Caliman and Egidia Caliman it was Ottilia who survived and was taken into a side room of the castle by a Bolten guard who planned to rape her before killing her. Edvard Caliman who had watched the killings from inside the castle wiped the tears away and followed the guard who had taken his cousin and Edvard was able to kill the Bolten guard who had been preparing to rape Ottilia Caliman. Following this and after calming down Ottilia the two would use the commotion to sneak Ottilia out and thus escaping from the city and making their way back to Castle Caliman. Following the increasingly corrupt road that Ondrew Locke took his forces Donnel begin meeting with Lords Romny, and Lyman of House Eastmyre, and House Caliman and was able to turn them to his side of things of which would lead to the eventual ending of House Locke's control by his father Ondrew Locke of whom he turned against during the Hornwood Rebellion. Following the discovery of Ottilia's dungeon by fleeing karstark men she was taken away by the karstark men eastward entering the lands of the Kingdom of Dustin and used the confusion of the coming Lucernian Invasion to their advantage setting up a camp east of Duseldorf where they sent word to House Caliman they had Ottilia demanding a ransom for her return. Edvard would be released from his imprisonment following the notice from the Karstark men and given a chance to prove his innocense by rescueing Ottilia once more


Early History

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.jpg

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.jpg
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.
