Background

Murder of Maergary Lovie

Maergary would become a source of increased resistance to the corruption being suffered by her son James and in this resistance it was James that was after several months unable to stop Vhloraz from taking complete control for several minutes and during this time Vhloraz would murder Maergary in front of many onlookers before James was able to regain control.

Prelude

Following the realization that he had killed his mother in a blind rage he would come to the conclusion that he could no longer control whatever was happening within him, and sent word for Esme to be brought back to Lucerne.

The Attempts

Confronting the Demon

Witold was a brave young man back then. He's been dead for years though. The thing that walks around now is not Witold.
Kieth Schwartz

With James still able to control himself during this time to a much larger degree then would eventually become the case he revealed to several of those near him that he felt a voice within him who called himself Vhloraz. He revealed this information to Kieth Schwartz, Esme Portmane, and Witold Jestife and learning this they would in their first attempt to save James attempt to discover the purpose of Vhloraz. Kieth, and Witold would both enter the Fade attempting to discover who this creature was but as they did this it was Vhloraz that was prepared for this attempt and as they got close to him he unleashed dozens of Titans aligned to him and while Kieth was able to escape back to reality it was Witold that found himself stuck within the Fade. Captured by the Titans it was Witold that was subjected to possession by the Titan Gernimach who tortured him within the Fade while back in reality it was Kieth, and others that worked feaverishly to attempt to get Witold back. After several days they were able to return Witold to reality but by this point it was Gernimach that came alongside him, and realizing what had happened it was the group that attempted to kill him but found themselves stopped by the arrival of Vhloraz. Vhloraz had taken complete control for a moment and fought alongside Gernimach killing several guards before forcing the rest to retreat leaving Vhloraz and Gernimach victorious in the moment.

Finding Help

After failing to destroy the book despite numerous attempts to do this she would look for assistance from the friends of James during their time at the Lucernian Academy in the form of Charlie Swan, Eddard Starke and Draco Highmore.

The Ambush

After Draco Highmore backed out after being unable to go through with killing his best friend despite what he had become the others not knowing this was the case would move forward with the plan but found themselves ambushed by the Circle of Magi and while they were able to escape Esme would be brought before James Lovie.

Vhloraz Betrayed

Gernimach and Vhloraz would at first work together but as Vhloraz gained more influence over James it was Gernimach that betrayed Vhloraz and worked with Kieth Schwartz to form a pact for James to make with Vhloraz which would give James safeguards to stop Vhloraz from ever taking full control. After betraying Vhloraz and leaving him unable to fully gain control of James it was Gernimach that feigned continued loyalty to Vhloraz who was far more powerful then he was but in actuality he begin forming the Order of the Cerulean Eye in order to eventually take control of the Valley of Lucerne and kill his now rival Vhloraz.
