Hoster Blackwood would be born the fifth child of his father Tytos, and Mylessa Blackwood and at the time of his birth he was very far down the line of succession and at the time of his birth early plans were for his tutoring towards the path of becoming a knight of House Blackwood. As a young man Hoster Blackwood would at first attempt to gain a close relationship with his family but his odd personality did not lend itself well to his family and with this isolation came the discovery of new people and he would become very clearly separated from the remainder of his family due to the fact that he enjoyed hanging out with very dark characters who accepted him and his odd ways. These morally dark indiviudals that he spent time with terrorized the villages south of the Blackwood land, and nearly started a war between House Blackwood and their southern vassals in an event known as the Black Errent War, but there identity was discovered before the situation got out of hand, and his father would come to him, and basically threaten to kill everyone of his little band of thugs if he didn't stop, and instead of actually stopping Hoster would spend a year growing his thugs which he came to call the Black Ravens for an eventual attack on the south again. His Black Ravens grew to nearly three hundred men by the end of the year, and with his strength at hand he would travel southward with the Black Ravens. Arriving at the home of the blackwood vassal House Rodfire he would surround their village and home and threaten them with death if they didn't give him all of their money. House Rodfire would reject this demand and thus a siege enseud between the two, and as the ravens were sent north to House Blackwood asking for help Hoster prepared the next step of his plans. His father in Raventree would receive the raven from House Rodfire and thus moved with a large force southward towards the situation prepared to end the conflict. When Tytos Blackwood arrived at the land of House Rodfire he found the entire village on fire and the people including House Rodfire in a pile all executed. He then saw his son standing amongst the corpses completely alone. Begging to know why his son had done this the only anwser that Hoster would give him was that he enjoyed the killing. His father couldn't bear to kill his own son, and thus would send him northward to the prison of House Blackwood at Browerten where he would take over the prison.

Death of Lucas Blackwood

The Death of Lucas Blackwood
You are born into a sort of arrogance being a member of a noble family. You believe there is danger in the world, but somehow you feel like there isn't a way that it could ever damage you. The death of my brother changed that pretty dramatically.

Alyn Blackwood

When Edmund Blackwood was fifteen he would travel alongside his brother Lucas Blackwood to Pontus where he and his brother were going to acquire a special sword for their father for his birthday. Joined as they were leaving by their sister Alyn Blackwood, and Alyn's lady in waiting Lyndia Greenfield the three would take a half dozen men with them, and made the boat trip to Pontus. During this trip he grew even closer to his brother, who while being a headstrong young man was also a very kind person on top of that. The two brothers were not the only ones that grew closer as Alyn Blackwood showed herself to be someone more intelligent then the brothers had thought she was capable of being, and because of that the three had a great time travelling to Pontus. Arriving in Pontus they were amazed at the splendor of the city of Pentos, and bathed in the riches of the markets and the immense goods available to them in the city. They would easily find the merchant that had the sword, and would be given a fair price for the sword of which they purchased. Once they had acquired the sword, and were preparing to leave the crater of Pontus it would be an arrogant joke towards their sister Alyn by Harlello Ostoran a member of The Crimson Contract that would cause Lucas to lash out at the man making the joke without thought of who the man was. Without a second thought Harlello Ostoran would duel Lucas and with Harlello a veteran of a hundred duels he would toy with Lucas of whom quickly realized he was going to lose and despite attempts by his siblings to end the fight he was unwilling and after only a minute Harlello had decapitated Lucas and when this happened as Alyn cried and Edmund stood stunned at the shocking death of Lucas Blackwood. Without any movement from Edmund Blackwood, he and Alyn would be horrified when the man would pick up the head of his brother and cut off his ear before throwing the now defaced head at his feet and walking away to the cheers of the crowd. Picking up their brother they were immediately taken from the city by Franzal Thorup the guard captain of their bodyguard troop but also a close friend of young Bryndan Blackwood of whom he had bonded with over their mutual desire for violence, and sexual depravity. returned to Raventree where their father was horrified that this had happened. Despite attempts to make the man pay for what had happened they discovered the man was a rich mercenary living in Pontus under the protection of one of their more rich merchents, and thus their revenge was not going to be able to be had.

Bitterness

Following the death of his brother Edmund was blamed heavily for his brother being killed, and because of this he was passed over for the Lordship of Raventree in favor of his less capable older brother Bryndan Blackwood, and instead was given Lordship over the Block. In the Black he would be married to Elana Gogen of House Gogen a lower level household, and even though he would become happy with her he felt this was yet another slight on him for something he had never done wrong. As he was being passed over in the Block his brother Byndan was being given the best of everything, and this only led to more and more resenment inside the heart of Edmund Blackwood.
