Florius Novellius is the son of Numerius Novellius, and Auria Senopiana making him a baseborn member of House Novellius through his father, and a baseborn member of House Senopiana through his mother. Florius has several half siblings of which he has never met due to the fact that he is barred from returning to the Roman Empire where his family lives on pain of death.

Florius Novellius would be born the bastard love child of Auria Senopiana and Numerius Novellius of whom were both nobles in the town of Pisa where the affair causes a great stir in the city eventually leading to outright war between the two families when Numerius refused to accept the child. Florius would spend his earliest years on the run following the victory of House Novellius against House Senopiana and was saved by his mother who traveled north eventually spending time in Venice. While in Venice Auria would meet Timone Swift and would engage in an affair with him and this affair would lead to Timone secretly bringing Auria and her son Florius with him back to Brill. Following the death of Edgar Swift it was Timone Swift that became the Lord of House Swift and as he engaged in his affair with Auria Senopiana his mother took control of House Swift and arranged a marriage of Timone to Theresa Crane, and by the time Timone realized what was happening Theresa and her family had arrived in Brill for the marriage. The weak willed Timone would be unable to resist his mothers wishes and would marry Theresa thus leaving Auria pregnant and with no options but another base born birth. Without options a pregnant Auria would attempt to murder Theresa and take control of House Swift but was stopped by Liarra Swift and the two engaged in a brutal fight which left both dead a scene which Timone would come upon leaving Timone to care for Auria's son Florius taking him on as a ward. Following the birth of Taylor Swift it would be Florius that was sent away to become a ward of Lord Rickard Karstark as an attempt by Timone Swift to protect Florius from what was increasingly becoming a hostile environment in Swiftvale for him. Timone Swift would visit Florius several times in the years that he was a ward in Karhold but each time for Florius it felt for him that Timone was looking at him more and more as a soldier and less and less like a son. Florius Novellius would return to Brill having reached eighteen and a completely changed man he discovered upon his return that he was forced to take on a new persona as to protect him from the hostility of Theresa Swift and thus under this new identity he realized that he would have to make a new life for himself. With the help of his father Timone he would become involved with the Circle of Magi and would serve for them in many missions but one of the first of these missions would be in the Fall of Alice Lovie. Florius through his work with the Circle of Magi would be tasked with assassinating Orival Crane in Brill but when the time to do the deed came the risk to Taylor Swift made him turn away and this would lead to his demotion in the Circle of Magi and the eventual Florian Affair where he was exiled to Forks by his father as a result. During the events of the Lucerne Civil War he was paid by the Kingdom of Bolten to assassinate members of the House Swift leadership, and specifically Taylor Swift. His attempt failed and following this attempted assassination of Taylor Swift he fled Lucerne, and fled eastward towards his benefactor in Bolten. Following the death of Roose Bolten Stephan would become extremely close to Ramsey Bolten becoming one of his primary soldiers and was responsible for atrocities in the northern Bolten village of Defrinia.

The Florian Affair

Main Article : The Florian Affair

The Florian Affair
I trusted you Taylor. From here out this only ends when one of us is dead.
Anna Kendrick Large Great1
All my friends greeted my like a queen returning from some distant war. They chatted endlessly about how poor the Cranes must have been. How savage the people. Every word they said was rude, or cruel in someway and I couldn't help but immediately wonder if this is who I was seen as.
Anna Kendrick

Working her way back into the most powerful of the noble girls her continued thinking of Orival Crane made her remember how good of a person she felt like she was with him and this made her depressed seeing the kind of person she was without him. This depression would bring her into contact with Taylor Swift of whom she apologized to for all the things that she had done to her in their life and this apology succeeded in bringing them closer together.

The Swift Family is a den of liars dear Anna. Taylor might be their worst member.
David Kendrick

Anna returning from another day out with Taylor this time having spent the day with her friend at the Dragonoph Temple where Taylor is rising quite high, and entering her house she is confronted by her father, brother and her brothers wife. Resisting her fathers demands to turn against Taylor Swift she is is shown a letter by her father that he says he has intercepted from House Crane to House Swift, and reading the letter it details that everything Orival Crane felt had all been a big manipulation in order to get revenge for what had happened to Taylor earlier. Questioning the letter her father reveals that Taylor Swift's mother is in fact a member of House Crane and everything was just a trick played by House Swift on her.

Failure

Anna's Revenge

Faced with the consequences of what Anna had revealed to the city it was Timone that summoned his entire family to a meeting including Florius Novellius. At this meeting it was a shocked House Swift that at first wanted to fight against the rumors and perhaps say that it wasn't true, but Florius stopped this when he told them that he wanted to take the fall for them. While at first resistant to this idea it was Theresa who having always hated Florius as a memory of his mother that would lead the call to take his advise and let him take the fall for all of this.

Telling the Truth

With Florius having been exiled from Forks in order to try and protect House Swift as best they could he prepared to leave the city. Florius in this moment was emotionally devastated but for his part was genuinely still in love with Taylor and thus would decide to attempt to protect her as best he could before he left the city and her life for good. Unable to meet with Taylor as she had been sent to Swiftvale to shield her from the immediate aftermath of the reveal of his identity it was Florius that decided to instead meet with Anna Kendrick and set the record straight.

I promise you Taylor that all the times we spent together were true. I wasn't fake then. I'm sorry that I was too weak. I'm sorry I proved you right about me.
Anna Kendrick

Civil War

Main Article : Lucerne Civil War

Following the embaressing release of the information regarding his affair with Taylor Swift Stephan found his way of life threatened, and the leadership of House Swift was so upset with him that they placed him in horrible positions for the entire period of the Lucerne Civil War. This caused a growing amount of bitterness, and this bitterness found its fire when he met Hallister Bolten in the local tavern of Brill. Hallister had been attempting to find an individual in Brill who could be paid to kill members of House Swift in order to destabalize the loyalist section of the Kingdom of Lucerne.

During the events of the Lucernian Civil War the only effect the war had on Taylor was the influx of funds for her temple, and for this reason she was completely unprepared for the coming attack she would suffer during the final days of the conflict. While Taylor was in the House Swift estate she was attacked by Stephan De'Marco, who attempted to kill her after he had been bought off by the leadership of the Kingdom of Bolten.

Stephen's initial ambush failed to hit her so he chased her around the house until he was finally stopped by Emile Hirsh who happened to be arriving at the estate to meet with William Swift. Emile and Stephan engaged in a duel and Emile was victorious but wasn't able to kill Stephan who managed to escape the estate.
