Kieth Schwartz is the son of Daimen, and Lucie Schwartz making him the current Patriarch of House Schwartz. Kieth Schwartz has two siblings in the form of Fadril, and Tylin Schwartz of which his brother Fadril lost himself during the time in the Circle of Magi and is now an extremely demented human, and his brother Tylin is one of the lone remaining male of the house following the betrayal of Kieth Schwartz during the Lucerne Civil War. Kieth Schwartz would marry Jaina Thalmer who he met through one of his best friends in Bill Thalmer, and the two would love each other for a long time before his corruption and this only ended when his brother Fadril killed two of their children and mortally wounded Jaina forcing a heartbroken Kieth to mercy kill her. With Jaina Thalmer he would have three children in the form of Daimen, Heather, and Derk Schwartz of which he murdered Heather, and Derk during his escape from Lucerne as his madness completely overcame all former love he had for the two, and his son Daimen Schwartz II. stands as the heir to House Schwartz should anything happen to Tylin Schwartz and only survived because he was in Lucerne squiring.

Kieth Schwartz is a Magi capable person and is of a high level in the form of a Level Three Magi. His main power is through the elementals, and like many level three's he has a problem maintaining his control over the Fade, and becase of this requires the use of a Staff to control his touching of the Fade.

Kieth Schwartz was born to the powerful House Schwartz, and during his youth before he was sent to the Lucernian Academy he was very close to his younger brother Tylin, and his brother Fadril and together the three would constantly talk of what they would do when they were older. When Kieth was sent to the Lucernian Academy he became friends with Bill Lovie, of whom took on a role of dominence with the impressionable Kieth Schwartz. This would be fine during that period as Bill was a good man, but when Kieth followed him to the Battle of Lyons everything would change and this control would become the point of destruction for Kieths soul. Bill would lose himself morally on the return to Lucerne, and thus when he got back he spent his time attempting to corrupt those around him, and while this failed with most he was able to worm his way into the soul of Kieth who became his most trusted commander. Kieth would in an attempt to save James work alongside the Dovah Vlarenix who he discovered moving inside the capital and together the two fashioned the device known as the Pendant of Cleansing which they hoped would remove the demon from James, but the devise failed to save James and only managed to discover the Dragonborn Eleonore Scarlet. Following the failure of the Pendant of Cleansing it was Kieth Scott that would remove all hopes from his heart of ever fixing James and instead worked to do his best to keep the memory of James alive through the protection of William Lovie III. Kieth Schwartz would be sent by James Lovie to Berne where he became an advisor to Sean but was secretly only loyal to Bill during this time, and would spy for Bill keeping him aprised as to the constant and steady decline of Sean's mental state. Following Eleonore Scarlet joining William at the council meeting it was James Lovie II. that would command Kieth Schwartz to kidnap Eleonore and take her out of the city where he was to kill her and bury her body so that no one ever found her, and in this it was Kieth that kidnapped Eleonore but while taking meeting with Johan Snow outside of Lucerne they discovered she was pregnant from her time with William and she was taken to Orleans instead of being killed. Kieth would be sent by Sean to Lucerne alongside the True Sons of Lucerne force which was sent for the tournament of Nortburg and during his time there he would reveal to William the truth and story of Bill Lovie from his own point of view and then following this would not return to Berne instead returning to Orleans and Bill Lovie.

The Fall of James Lovie II.

Main Article : Lucernian Retreat from Lyons

I didn't know Magi before that day. It was as if the power just flowed into me as I read the book. What manner of power flowed into that book to make it possible I'll never know.
James Lovie

Having made the decision to rest at Berne before traveling back into the Valley it was James that felt content for a time in the city and while the plan was never to stay for longer then a few days he felt at ease during his time there. Tobin remained behind in Berne holding control of the town for James who moved the rest of their forces back to Lucerne, and while in command of Berne it was Tobin who begin to recover emotionally but also took the girl he had raped as his wife forcing her into marriage.

Return to Family

Arriving back at the Lucernian capital, there was sadness, but also happiness that at least some had survived. James went to his family, and attempted to find peace again, but he was quite dramatically changed by the things he'd seen as well as the words spoken by Pablius. James would at first be kept busy when he was told by leadership in the capital that members of the Arch Lords had attempted to push out William Lovie III. and place one of their own as the new monarch, and that the only reason this had failed was due to Hayden Percy arriving at the capital with a force from House Percy and defending the capital. Without Lisa to talk to it was James that fell into the depression of what had happened to him alongside the paranoia that he felt following the news that while he was gone members of the Arch Lords had attempted to place someone outside of House Lovie as a new monarch over his son William. These fears led to him distancing himself from almost everyone outside of his closest friends, and led him down a path of trying desperately to fix Lisa. Each night as Lisa fell deeper into the Fade as a result of her work with Lornax, James would sneak to the Lovie family library and searched their books for some sort of answer to how to save his wife from what was happening to her.

There was nothing good in that book from a morality sense of the word. But in that book I found the answers to every question I'd ever asked. As I read more and more I came to understand the world in a way that both shocked, and amazed me.
James Lovie II.

It was during one of these searches of the House Lovie library that he found a book that would change his mind for good, and set the Kingdom of Lucerne in a tailspin. He would begin searching in the locked section of the House Lovie library, and discovered Mysticism which was a book hidden by William Lovie due to its historical connection with darkness and evil. Not knowing the true depths of the book's evil James Lovie became obsessed with the book and for months he would spend every night reading the book over and over again. Each time he read the book his mind became more wrapped up in the things he learned about Magi, but also each time he read the book he begin hearing voices in his head which taught him things.

I didn't know Magi before that day. It was as if the power just flowed into me as I read the book. What manner of power flowed into that book to make it possible I'll never know.
James Lovie

While before reading the book he had did not have any active connection to the Fade and was of level 0 in terms of Magi, it was James that was actually a Dragonborn due to his blood and thus was sensitive in magi just not in a way that he would have ever discovered without assistance. While the Dragonborn were envisioned to be guided by a Dovah, it was the actions of John Lovie that had left the Dovah removed from the Kingdom of Lucerne and thus the Dragonborn of the Valley were born and died without ever understanding their underlying abilities. This underlying Dragonborn abilities led to the Fallen Titan Vhloraz having a lot of difficulty in gaining control of James and thus he played the long game giving James more power in return for James doing things for him. The things that James was asked to do seemed trivial but were in fact allowing Vhloraz to weaken the protective Magi shield that all Dragonborn have over them, and as this continued Vhloraz was able to move himself out of Mysticism and into James thus beginning the parasitic relationship between the two.

Returning Friends

You have to understand William. When you father left Lucerne he had everything. He had a wife he loved. Friends who loved him. Family. When he returned he got the feeling he had lost it all. He pushed away his friends until they begin to scatter. His family didn't recognize him, and he knew that. Hes a broken man.
Einhard Rosler

Following the return of James Lovie from the War in France it was Esme Portmane that returned to Lucerne deciding she needed to see him and the two would spend time together before his growing emotional erraticness would lead to Esme leaving but she did leave pregnant with their third child together. Also returning to his side was his former best friends in the form of Einhard Rosler, Charles Swan, and Eddard Starke all of whom were very excited to have their friend back, but would quickly realize he was a changed man. Einhard had become a parental figure to Williams children as by this point Lisa was all but a ghost of herself barely capable of stringing words together, and for this James held him in very high esteem not showing any signs of jealousy. Charles for his part attempted to go back to things as normal but James blamed himself for the death of Charles father during the Battle of Lyons and felt shame around Charles causing their relationship strain. Eventually this strain would lead to Charles leaving Lucerne to return to Forks, and this departure left him the open target for many of the new people entering James life.

The Circle of Magi

I need you both to do something for me. Bring minds capable of helping us. Bring them together so that we can fix what has been broken.
James Lovie II.

During this period where James fell into addiction, and depression over the rising control of Vhloraz he would also command the founding of a long time dream of his in the form of the Circle of Magi. In this founding he gave the organization of this to his two close friends Kieth Schwartz, and Er-Khadgar Morgrave of whom went about doing what James had always dreamed of when they formed the early foundation of the Circle. Putting out public notices throughout the Grand State of the Crownlands for all Magi sensitive to come to a camp they constructed outside of Nortburg they received hundreds of recruits of whom having been forced to hide before this found great hope in this new direction. One of these new recruits was Wuldrik Toyne of whom would travel from the Grand Temple of Lucerne to Nortburg where he met with one of the earliest recruits to the Circle of Magi in the form of Lothar Guntbold and the more advanced Magi Lothar took him under his wing during this early time.

Battle of Murstendorf

Main Article : Battle of Murstendorf

The Sogronul that once led us would have never done what she did at Murstendorf.
Sogronul

As the smoke cleared and it was clear the extent of the violence that the forces of the Voiceless had done to the city it was Aelfwynn that would turn against Sogronul realizing that there was no redemption to be found for her adoptive mother and fled to Turnendorf.

Siege of Turnendorf

Aelfwynn would arrive at Turnendorf ahead of the main Voiceless army and warning her father of the coming attack they were able to deploy defenses and call up hundreds of men from the country side.

Arrival of James Lovie II.

The siege of Turnendorf was ended with the arrival of James Lovie II. and the relief army from Lucerne of whom with their superior numbers forced the order to retreat back to Rissingshire Castle.

Siege of Thaig Roelet

Last Stand

As the forces of Lucerne broke the defenses of Thaig Roelet it was Aethelhilda that would make the decision to sacrifice herself so that the Order of the Voiceless Angel could survive and in a massive spell she blew herself up creating a giant fissure in the ground that seemed to destroy the Thaig but had actually only broken the entrance.

James Lovie's Suicide Attempt

Main Article : James Lovie's Suicide Attempt

Esme Portmane Cover Amazing.jpg

I'm sorry James. There can be no doubting this. I watched you kill her with my own eyes.
Kieth Schwartz

Maergary would become a source of increased resistance to the corruption being suffered by her son James and in this resistance begin recalling people to the capital that had been friends of James during his better times. First bringing to the capital Charles Swan, and Eddard Starke the two former best friends of James found themselves shocked at what had happened to James. Both had seen the changes when he had returned from France, but the changes since they had left were beyond dramatic, and led both to vow to try and help there former best friend. As the attempts continued 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. 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 with Lisa now nearly comatose he commanded that word be sent for Esme to be brought back to Lucerne. Esme responded almost immediatly to the call to the return, and begin heading to Lucerne from Lorderon traveling with her daughter Diane but leaving behind Natalie, and Jamie with her family. As they waited for Esme to come to Lucerne the group was forced to put James into an almost constant state of use of opioids which kept Vhloraz at bay. When Esme arrived she was shocked to see the state of addiction he was in, but doing his best James asked them to listen as he told them the truth for the first time about what was happening to him.

The First Attempt

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 those near him that he felt a voice within him who called himself Vhloraz. He revealed this information to Kieth Schwartz, Khadgar, Esme Portmane, Charles Swan, Eddard Starke, and Witold Jestife and learning this they would in their first attempt to save James attempt to discover the purpose of Vhloraz. Kieth, Khadgar, 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, and Khadgar were 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 feverishly 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.

It started off with good intentions.
Aelfwynn Turnidlon

Following this event it was Kieth that decided to begin shielding James from events like this through the assistence of both Lothar Guntbold, and the increasingly prominent Aelfwynn Turnidlon. Aelfwynn was commanded to create illusions for James which made him believe that those who were being killed, or the bad decisions being made were either deserved or out of his control. Lothar would assign his enchanter Wuldrik Toyne to assist Aelfwynn in this goal by creating memory loss spells that assisted in the stories and menipulations being done by Aelfwynn.

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.

Alice Lovie7.jpg

I want you to know that being around you. Spending time with you. It was my honor. I know I'm not your father, and I wouldn't ever pretend to be. Just know thats how I look at you. I love you Alice.
Einhard Rosler

Its Alice Lovie that returns to Lucerne with William and the rest of the Lucernian party that had traveled to Gulltown for the wedding and tournament. Arriving back home she and William spend the day together at Lake of Aerene's Breath swimming and having fun together. There fun ends with the arrival of Einhard Rosler who is joined by Aria Arryn, Dylan Steinmare, and Faye Skane three friends of William's who take him away while Einhard stays with Alice who is sad that William has left her but spends time talking with Einhard. Einhard appears nervous, and having known him for years she is surprised to see him like this but doesn't mention anything about it to him. The arrival of Draco Highmore leaves Einhard to return to the Sky Tower where he tells her he is going to speak to her mother, and before Alice can say anything about this its Draco that begins telling her about the fact that he has overheard that she will be betrothed at the upcoming Nortberg Tournament.

Planning for Cleansing

Esme Portmane Cover Amazing.jpg

I'm sorry James. There can be no doubting this. I watched you kill Einhard with my own eyes.
Kieth Schwartz

After James had killed Einhard it was Kieth that attempted to hide the murder from James the same way he had hidden the events of the Purge, but this time he found his attempts thwarted by the counter work of the Dovah Flarnax. Flarnax had become friends of sorts with Einhard during the Goblin Invasion of Telstendil and had stayed in contact with Einhard and was thus deeply hurt when Einhard was killed, and watching as the Circle attempted to hide the murder from James she would make that an impossibility. As Aelflynn, and Wudrik made their final preparations to remove this memory from James it was Flarnax assisted by Lornax that would reveal the truth of what happened with Einhard to William who then confronted his father. The involvement of William changed everything as Aelfwynn and Wudrik were unwilling to involved the prince in their work and thus they were forced to deal with the fact that James now knew the truth. Following the realization that he had killed his friend Einhard Rosler 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. James in this way did not remember due to the manipulations of both Aelfwynn Turnidlon, and Vhloraz that he had already once before brought Esme to the capital attempting this same thing, and thus made the command again. Despite his attempt to get Esme to come back it was Kieth that realized the cost of bringing her back was most likely her life and did not send the letter to her leaving it up to just him and Carlisle to try and fix this once and for all.

The Ritual

Failure

Tanya Cullen Cover Amazing6.jpg

I need you to stay here. Promise me that you won't leave this room. Promise me Edward. Swear to me that you will not leave this room.
Carlisle Cullen

Carlisle in his attempt to keep Edward safe brings a Magi trainer to the city in order to train his son without alerting anyone of what power Edward actually has. Upon the arrival of Moritz its Carlisle that takes him to meet with a man he has brought to Lucerne in order to help him learn of his power. Meeting with the man he learns about his new trainer in the form of Moritz Krenkel of whom is from northern Lucerne and has kept his Magi secret for his whole life through mastery of control. Moritz and Edward leave Lucerne and travel to a small farm southwest of the city where the two practice Magi for several days. Edward during this time listens to the words of Moritz in a way but also misses his friends and Tanya and thus goes against Moritz wishes when he uses Magi to speak to William, and Tanya through his dreams. Their training stops when William, Leven, Byron, Jasper, and Tanya arrive at the farm after following the clues left by Edward in the Magi dreams and as Edward prepares to leave its Moritz that warns him about his use of Magi, but Edward wants to spend time with his friends more then he wants to learn and so rejects Moritz advise and leaves with the group back to Lucerne. Returning to Lucerne they find the gateway out of Lucerne is heavily fortified, and a large caravan is moving out of the city. William learns from the caravan that all of the families leaving the city have been paid to leave the city and Edward senses all of the families have a member that is Magi sensitive, and at this feeling he clenches his ring tightly.

How long do I have to be hidden away Will. I tire of being constantly hidden away by my father. I just want to be normal.
Edward Cullen

After spending the day with his friends he returns home and finds his father sitting at his table reading and at the sight of Edward his father storms towards him grabbing him in anger, and Edward tries to use magi to push him off but his ring cancels his power and his father is able to berate him on his coming back to Lucerne. With the city on lock down Carlisle is unable to get Edward out of the city as he wants to and so he locks Edward in his room and Edward can hear through the walls his father put the guards on alert to not let Edward leave his room including placing Oskar of Cullen inside the room with Edward to make sure nothing happens. Despite his father begging him not to leave Edward ignores the warnings of his father and when Oskar is distracted momentarily by Edward tricking him its Edward that removes his ring and uses Magi to leave a bedazzling hex on his chair making Oskar see the chair as Edward, while he then again uses Magi to walk through the wall and out of his room. With Oskar still believing he was in the room its Edward that sneaks out of his home and after getting out without anyone seeing him he makes his way to Tanya's home. Arriving at her house Edward talks with both her parents in the form of Emerich and Carmen Denali of whom he discusses with them Emerich's desire to push the betrothal of Edward and Tanya forward, and Edward quickly agrees telling him he will talk with his father. When Tanya comes down Emerich doesn't know Edward is restricted and thus lets Tanya leave with him for the Eye of Lucerne where all the friends were supposed to meet. Edward and Tanya walk together and its clear that the two are in love, and trying to impress Tanya he takes his ring off several times doing little Magi tricks which make her smile. Arriving at the fortress of Reintrel he is let through the gates by Arnulf Reintrel of whom knows him and so lets him and Tanya inside letting them know that William and the others arrived about an hour ago and were already on the lift going up. Going to the lift they wait in the garden surrounding it and sit with a family that is also taking the lift up in the form of Meinhard Bethmann, and his wife Irmlinde, and their two children Charlotte, and Markolf and talking with them they all have a nice conversation while they wait for the lift to come back.

Possession on the Mountain
You killed me way back on that mountaintop Ed. I've been a walking corpse ever since. Fitting your the one that final puts me down.
Byron Arryn II.

Edward, and Tanya are laying together on a blanket just talking, but when Tanya gets cold its Edward who once more takes his ring off and uses Magi to start a small fire keeping them warm, but when he does this he feels the air change and looking into the sky he sees a crack in the sky itself. While Tanya cannot see this change its Edward who becomes panicked watching as figures begin appearing through the crack in the sky coming towards him, and as he attempts to put his ring back on he drops it and while trying to get it back the figures reach them and crash into both Byron Arryn II. and Meinhard Bethmann, but after hitting Meinhard he is able to get his ring back on and the figures disappear. Going to the side of Byron he checks on his friend and sees blood coming from his ears, and eyes and fears Byron is dead until he sits up suddenly alongside Meinhard whose family was crying over him. Unable to stop Byron, and Meinhard who are responding but in unusual ways they watch as the two make there way back to the barracks overhang and despite attempts to stop them they grab two gliders and jump off the side of the overhang down towards Lucerne to the horror of everyone there.

Aftermath

Discovery of Eleonore

Eleonore Scarlet Cover Front Amazing1.png

What have you kept hidden from us Flarnax. Is this one of the blood of William? The things she could do for the valley. Don't listen to Flarnax little one. Listen to me. I'll give the whole world. I'll give you the prince.
Vlarenix

As Kieth leaves the Cloud Towers in order to meet with the White Dovah following the failure of the Pendant to get rid of Vhloraz its Wuldrik that follows the command of Khadgar and follows Kieth. Following him and his several guards through the streets they arrive at the Great Temple of Glaurung where he watches as Kieth dismisses his guards and begins speaking with the two White Dovah from the spell room. Its Eleonore Scarlet that is sitting at prayer within the Great Temple of Glaurung when she is shaken by the door into the Temple smashing open revealing two women, and a man who smash the door closed behind them. The three do not notice her and she is able to hide herself behind a pillar as they start yelling at each other, and listening for a moment she is startled from behind as Gerwine Holderlin a prominent priestess covers her mouth from screaming before motioning for her to be silent. Gerwine steps out into the argument revealing herself but they three indicate they felt her before she had entered the room, and Eleonore questions why they didn't sense her then. Gerwine names the three as Kieth Schwartz (who Eleonore knows as he is quite prominent in the government), Vlarenix, and (both of whom Eleonore does not recognize) and then is referred to by Kieth as Flarnax. During this arguement its Vlarenix that admits that the plan from her side all along was to kill Vhloraz but she knew that would also basically kill James by cutting him off from his duality spirit, but argues that this is the only way forward as there is no way to remove the possession otherwise. Kieht is unable to accept turning James into what has become of Byron Arryn and thus rejects attempting to do the spell again with more defenses this time. The arguing eventually ends with Kieth telling them that he will no longer help them or hide them, and that from this moment forward his only goal is protecting James to whatever end that leads him. As Kieth leaves the remaining three keep talking for a time but this two is interrupted by Eleonore accidentally dropping her copy of The Testament of Ysgramor and this leads to her being forced to reveal herself. The moment they see her she watches as Gerwine gives her a depressed look before standing between her and the two women, but despite attempting to block them its the one called Vlarenix that moves past Flarnax and begins inspecting Eleonore.

The Badger Rebellion
You ever wonder how Tree Hill fell Franklin. You ever question how so many Orcs could just walk blindly across this kingdom and not a soul saw them. Maybe its time to start asking questions.

Kieth Shwartz1.png

After Tree Hill Sophia, nothing made sence. Why had the Orcs failed to complete the task? The orcs were meant to destroy Tree Hill, and then from there ransack southern Lucerne and hopefully damaging if not destroying Forks. When that went to hell I was forced to destabilize the region in other ways.
Bill Lovie to Sophia Lovie

Following the destruction of Tree Hill, it was the continued attempt by Bill Lovie to further destabilize the region and unable to understand why the Orcs hadn't destroyed Tree Hill completely and unable to meet with them he begin going back to his old trickery of creating bandits and using them to attack his own people. The Badgers of Lucerne were one of the many banditry groups he created, and they were especially dangerous as Bill Lovie sent Kieth Schwartz specifically to lead them, and he was a truly dangerous man and this was only made more dangerous by Kieth bringing his nephew Harry Schwartz, and fellow Circle of Magi member and demented psychopath Tobin Aven to act as commanders for him. Outside of this main leadership James Lovie also sent Luthor Clune who would be commanded to move against the principality of Limca using his family connections to have them support bandit movement against House Brent at Marburg. The Badgers were able to quickly gather forces through bribery, and intimidation of the small villages south of Castle Garfield, and from there begin raiding merchants and noblemen all across the province of Northern Hillsbrad. During this initial time the Badgers were able to turn Edmund Frotenhood to their side with the promise that he would gain the lands of House Tollsen following his siding with them, and desperate to remove his hated brother he would agree to assist them placing a powerful noble on the side of the Badgers. At first it fell under the responsibility of House Garfeild to deal with this problem and they went about this by calling in nearly all of their personal forces, and vassal forces and moving into the smaller villages searching for the Badgers. This would have great effect as they were able to find their way to the Badgers main hideout in the hills where they would attack it and kill many members of the Badgers, but unknown to them was the fact that the Badgers had been tipped off about the attack and most had fled including Kieth Schwartz westward where they were finding the work of Luthor Clune was going very well with the forces of House Haushka standing behind the Badgers.

We all had heard how the Garfield's were dealing with a bandit problem, and we were all overjoyed that we heard they had destroyed the bandits after sieging their camp. Then to hear that Jedyon, and his mother were dead and a castle taken by the bandits led to a massive counter assault by the vengeful Hillsbrad forces.
Liam Greymane
Now realizing that House Garfield was an immediate threat to their movements the Badgers under the command of Kieth Schwartz would prepare to capture Castle Tollsen that was the seat of the small House Tollsen. Supported by his protection at Limca by the forces of House Haushka it was Kieth would use deception, and bribery once again to to bring about the capture of Rosomund Garfield, of whom he believed that once he captured her he could cause a chain reaction which would lead to all out war in the region. Sending a new arrival to his forces in the form of Fredrik Gurse to capture her from her home, he would march his forces to the site of Castle Tollsen where they would wait for Fredrik Gurse to capture Rosomund Garfield. Fredik Gurse was able to get within the walls of Castle Garfield and during the night kidnapped Rosomund of whom he quickly took during the night riding his horse ragged to Castle Tollsen hours away, and when he arrived he would be shocked by the reaction of the Badger leadership. With his prize in hand Kieth Schwartz would execute her without much consideration and quickly after and left her broken body at the edge of the road into Castle Tollsen where he knew the Garfield loyalists of House Tollsen would be quick to report this murder. Lord Gregor Tollsen's men would discover her body the next day and the loyal Gregor Tollsen would do what was believed he would do when he sent his eldest son Rymen Tollsen, and his wife Esla Tollsen to Castle Garfield where he would tell the Garfields about the murder of Rosomund Garfield.
Esla Tollsen Gif.gif
This led to Jeydon Garfield the heir to the house, and the leader of their forces to travel to Castle Tollsen with a small force of men to retrieve his mother and find out what had happened to her at the same time. On the march to Castle Tollsen Jeydon would be ambushed on the road into the castle by Tobin Aven and killed. All of the men with Jeydon were killed outside of his wife Anrea of whom had accompanied her husband but her fate was worse as she would be raped by several of the bandits following the ambush, and then in this emotionally destroyed state she was forced to watch as the bandits took on the identity of the Garfield men as their clothes were taken, and the Badgers preparaed to use them to infiltrate Castle Tollsen. The group now dressed as House Garfield would come to the front gate and using Anrea as a vocal member of the group the Tollsens would allow them inside, and once the portcullis were raised to let them in the group would kill the guards within their reach before taking control of the gatehouse, and making signals for the main force Inside the castle they allowed in the rest of the bandits and took control of the castle, with little to no resistance. Once in control of Castle Tollsen they would strap Gregor Tollsen to a pole in the center of the main courtyard and he would be forced to watch as the bandits put much of the castle to the sword including one of Lord Gregor's sons. As if this was not enough they would burn down the ancient Tollsen Tree which spread smoke high into the air, and would bring about the attention of Rymen, and Elsa Tollsen of whom had went to the estate of House Frotenhood following their telling of House Garfield of the death of Rosomund Garfield. Seeing the smoke Rymen and Elsa would lead their small detachment of Tollsen forces alongside the forces of House Frotenhood led by Galbert Frotenhood, and his two sons Edmund Frotenhood, and Franzal Frotenhood of whom as a force would move towards Castle Tollsen.

Counter Attack

Liam Greymane2.jpg
I'm not sure what their endgame was. Did they not know that the moment they attacked that castle the entire state would be moving against them? Did they not know that several hundred bandits was going to be no match for thousands of loyal Lucernian soldiers? I guess what do I care why they acted like idiots.
Liam Greymane

With the fall of Castle Tollsen the entire forces of House Greymane were aware of the attack, and Liam Greymane would lead the charge to eradicate the Badgers. Calling for all the vassals of which were many tens thousands of men at arms and thousands of knights was not needed so he called on House Crowley, and several other houses to travel with him and deal with the bandits. As the army was growing Frank Brent would send his son Franklin Brent to join the army as Frank was best friends with Gregor Tollsen, and Franklin Brent would immediately answer this call with his force of Unwashed of whom Frank hoped that due to his involvement in the conflict Franklin would come to better understand the rigors of combat. The army camped south of Tollsen a month after the castle had fallen, and by this time the area around it and the southern section of Northern Hillsbrad was in flames from the work of the Bandits. House Garfield had made attempts to stop them now under the command of Andrew Garfield, but the Badgers had begun force-ably recruiting men from the villages, and had armed most of Castle Tollsen into their forces, and were using hostages to maintain their loyalty if needed. Finding themselves up against a little more then a thousand troops the forces of Liam Greymane spent another two weeks waiting for reinforcements from House Lerman of whom unexpectaly were sent northward to assist with the action. Dexter Hill, and Franklin Brent led their personal forces first in the vanguard and would be used as a lure for a large group of bandits that was burning across the province. The lure worked and they were brought into battle where they were overwhelmed by the entire army of Greymane of which now moved into a siege of Castle Tollsen.

The Battle of Castle Tollsen was quick due to the fact that there was no actual battle. The Badgers didn't actually want to fight, they simply were cowards playing at the edges of society. There first taste of real fighting had been a bitter one.
Franklin Brent

As the Badgers were sieged in Castle Tollsen, they were damaged as a single man stood on the tallest tower and used Magi to torment the siegers with whispering in their minds causing many to be unable to sleep, and others to be forced to leave the battle completely. When this did not end the siege though Kieth Schwartz understood clearly he couldn't hold, and talks were starting amongst the forced men fighting for him that they should storm the dungeons and regain their hostages of which would allow them to turn on the Badgers. With this happening, Kieth Schartz would send some two hundred men of his forces (mainly the forced members of his forces) outside of the castle and he begin planning a full scale retreat. As this happened the two hundred men sent out of the castle would begin infighting as the Bandits were bullied by the forced members, and this led to some sixty of the two hundred (all of the true bandits) heading westward trying to retreat away from the siege. Seeing this Franklin Brent, and Dexter Hill would lead a charge of their forces into the sixty, while Liam moved the main army to attempt to stop a full retreat. Franklin Brent's Unwashed would wipe out the sixty bandits, while Dexter Hill killed many of the outriders that were retreating from the broken force. Liam reached the castle to late to stop the retreat, and Kieth Schwarts was able to pull out of Castle Tollsen with some two hundred men, while the remainder of the loyal Bandits were dead during the revolt that had taken place within the castle.

I told you the truth back in Hillsbrad Lord Brent. I told you the truth and it is up to you whether you choose to believe me and the facts I bring to the table. I'm not forcing anything. Believe what you will.
Dexter Hill

With the Badgers at Tollsen defeated with their number mainly dead, and a small amount retreating westward with Kieth Schwartz, the threat was seen as all but gone. Liam would send the Lerman's after the retreating forces, while he led the main army into Castle Tollsen where he planned to spend several weeks rebuilding what was lost, and adding what he could to the area. Dexter Hill, and Franklin Brent would meet on the battlefield, and Dexter learned that Kieth Schwartz was leading the Badgers, and told this information to Franklin Brent of whom didn't fully believe him yet, but begin to seriously suspect Bill Lovie of nefarious actions, and also begin to further trust Dexter Hill. Logan Lerman, his two brothers, and his father would lead the Lerman forces into a fake chase of the Badgers, and Logan and his younger brother were shocked when they stopped their forces to camp, and were met while camped by the remaining Badgers. Logan, and Krandell Lerman attempted to fight them, but they were laughed at by both their older brother Faedra Lerman, and their father and after they started the Badgers also started laughing. Seeing this turn of events the brothers came to understand that they were working together with the badgers and that all the violence that had been done they had basically supported. Several dead bodies were passed across, and a mass grave was shown to Logan of which would be identified in case they needed to as the place they buried the remaining Badgers. One of the badgers a younger looking man introduced himself to Logan as James Nighting II. and had been sent by his family and revealed to Logan that despite his families prominent position they had become dire hard supporters of the Bill Lovie led regime.

End of Darkness.jpg
Look at the world father. You were born into this land. You grew up here. These people swore their lives to you. How could you have done all of this? Look at everything you have done. You destroyed a city. Killed hundreds of good men out of fear. Is this how you want to be remembered father. Is this the world you want to leave behind? I know you were a good person once. Don't end it all here. Don't do this. For me father. For everything I supposedly mean to you. Don't do this.


I pulled my sword out of the poor man infront of me and collected myself around the rest of my men. A quick look told me we had lost very few if anyone in the charge, but looking to Edric Maul I knew my anwser would come quicker. "Edric what were our losses?"

"Simon took an arrow to the face, and Tohmen was slashed on the neck." Only two casualties wasn't terrible considering how many of them we had just overrun, but as I looked out onto the field and saw how many were in retreat I knew this was just the beggining."Probably more injuries, but we won't know that until after the battle Milord." As he spoke I spotted the personal banner of Dexter on the hill before us, and knew I wanted to have a chat with Dexter about what was the next plan for the complete defeat of the Badgers.

"Thank you Edric."He bowed his bloodied face at me and I turned towards the rest of my men. "Follow me men." As quickly as I said it I could hear the men trotting behind me as I made my way towards Dexter Hill of whom was stopped on a hill nearbye watching the retreat of the Badgers. Nearing him several of his men rode up the hill ahead of us, and spoke to him, of which the conversation was still going as I finally reached Dexter.

"A cousin of the man identified him."

"That will make for an interesting story. Where is this cousin now?"

"He was struck down by an arrow, but with his dying words he told me Milord."

"Then I suppose this information shall remain with us."

"What information shall remain with you Dexter?" I wanted to trust Dexter. He had never given me reason to think he was a liar, but the simple fact was that everyone I met made a special point to tell me not to trust him, and that had unfortunatly seeped into my thinking.

"Look out at the retreating Badgers Frank. Do you see the man carrying the banner? " 

"Yes. I see him."

"Beside him is the man leading the Badgers."

"It seems obvious that the commander would be near the banner. What sort of..."

"Yes this would be obvious Franklin, but its the identity of the man that is interesting. I have learned from a dying man that the man leading the Badgers was none other then Kieth Schwartz."

"I do not know that name."

"Kieth Schwarts is the best friend of our glorious king my friend."

"How could that be." There had never been any real truth to Dexter's story that our King had been the cause of the destruction of Tree Hill, but if his best friend was truly here then that would be damning.

"I have a feeling that the anwser to that question is further truth to what I told you of Tree Hill."

"But it just doesn't make any sense. Why would the King of Lucerne go to such lengths to destroy his own land." I saw briefly a look of disapointment across Dexter's face as I once again resisted what he was telling me.

"I told you the truth back in Hillsbrad Lord Brent. I told you the truth and it is up to you whether you choose to believe me and the facts I bring to the table. I'm not forcing anything. Believe what you will." With that he waved at his men, and they went riding down the hill towards the main force now entering the castle. I didn't know what to think right now, but I know that my father would have a better understanding of what was going on in the world.

After speaking with Krandell for some time he believed that he had also convinsed his brother that despite it being morally wrong they had no choice due to the oaths they had sworn to always serve and honor their lord and their king. Spending weeks riding around basically pretending to fight against the badgers Logan and his brother Krendall would stay very close keeping eachother company and this continues until the end of the Badger Rebellion when his father leads the Lerman forces back to Castle Tollsen which shows major signs of improvement under Liam Greymane and it is here that the Lucernian forces meet to discuss next steps.

Siege of Limca

Karyl Reyne Cover Amazing1.jpg

You think you had anything to do with the support you got here Franklin? It was all Karyl.
Coyle Ordos

Following the discoveries it was Franklin Brent IV. that travels to Marburg with Karyl Reyne where he meets with the leadership of the city in the form of his father and his fathers vassals and attempts to convince them that the bandits are funded by the king James Lovie and to give him more forces so that he might attack. Franklin stays several days in Marberg waiting for the arrival of House Ordos of whom is sending delegates there at the request of his father so that House Ordos can hear of what is happening, and while waiting he continues attempting to convinse them further about his designs. Franklin's cousin Kyle Darkwood arrives in the town by chance and Franklin attempts to convinse him to come with him to Limca but Kyle is cold to the idea telling Franklin how little there is to gain by going against the king in whatever violent attept he is making. After Kyle Darkwood leaves Franklin is disapointed in his continues failures and returns to his room where he finds Karyl waiting for him and not wanting her to see him down he barks orders at her which in his head he is disgusted at himself for the way he speaks to her but he feels a growing desire to touch her which scares him.

My father said I was brilliant. My father always said I could talk the most charismatic man into giving me the coat off his back. Had my father lied about who I was? Was I notas great as he had said I was?
Franklin Brent IV.
Sleeping for several hours he leaves the room to go and find his father but is stopped by lord Deitrik Greentail of whom tells him that he has had a change of heart from his earlier refusal to assist Franklin and will send his son Estmar Greentail with a force of one thousand to support Franklin's movement and at this news Franklin feels better and goes to see Kyle but before he can its his sister Fiona who tells him that House Ordos has arrived at the city. Meeting with Coyle the day after Coyle agreed to allow House Brent to intervene its Coyle that lets slip to him that Karyl Reyne has been also moving in behind him and furthering his points to those he speaks, and Kyle Darkwood insults Franklin over the fact that he hasn't actually been convinsing anyone but actually it was Karyl. Furious at Karyl he storms to find her but she remains calm and tells him that she is his wife and she will do anything to help him, and she attempts to be physically intimate with him, but we discover that he is unable to touch her due to severe distress she touches him.
Karyl Reyne Gif.gif
Karyl attempts to console him as he breaks down as he was shown to be so weak, but he won't let her and he leaves her alone, and gathers his men. Following this Franklin Brent marches at the head of the force from Marburg he has been able to gather northwards towards the town of Limca where Dexter Hill has told him the remaining forces of the Badgers have gathered under the command of Kieth Schwartz. Meeting with the force of Dexter Hill outside of Limca he discovers the army of Limca having gathered outside the walls and sends out a scout with a white flag which leads to a meeting between the forces of Franklin and the forces of House Haushka. Meeting with Lord Swen Haushka and his brother Ottkar Haushka he and Dexter are finally vindicated when they discover that Kieth Schwartz stands with them openly revealing his presence among the army of House Haushka. Following the discussion the forces of Franklin Brent place the town under siege while the forces of House Haushka launch attempts to break the siege but are repulsed through the work of Dexter Hill whose cavalry push back any attempt to break the siege. Karyl Reyne arrives at the siege camp several weeks into the siege and Franklin is suprised when he is quite excited to see her, and for a moment he wants to reach out and touch her but before he can he is overcome by his fears and pulls back. Karyl and Franklin spend time in his tent where they discuss what has happened during the weeks of the siege and Karyl gives him advise of what he should do advising him to turn Swen Haushka against Kieth Schwartz through trickery and trusting her advise Franklin raises a white flag bringing the two sides to discussion. Meeting with the leaders of the Limca rebels including Kieth Schwartz its Franklin who is prepared to use the advise given to him by Karyl but as they speak Franklin mentions in passing that William Lovie III. is at Forks and Kieth stops the entire debate immediately. Demanding more information on this Franklin says that once the Siege of Limca is over he has been asked to travel to Hillsbrad to join the meeting with House Greymane and the Grand State of the Westerlands where their decision on whether to support William will be made. Kieth without warning orders Lord Swent Haushka to stand down and surrender, but forces favorable terms for House Haushka and the Principality of Limca stating that in return for this favorable term then House Haushka will support the prince at Forks. As the terms are agreed over its Kieth who asks to speak to Franklin separately and unable to get Elsa Tollsen to not go with him she joins them for this final talk, and going far enough into the field that no one can hear them Kieth tells them the truth of the Badger Rebellion. Elsa is held back by Franklin as she tries to kill Kieth for clearly being responsible for the death of most of her family, and then without apology or any attempt at gaining forgiveness Kieth wishes them good luck and to tell the prince what he has told them, and then he pulls out a rock and disappears into nothing. Returning to the remaining rebels they accept the surrender of House Haushka on the terms agreed upon and following this Swen gives Franklin information on the location of a Badger hideout and then has his son Ottkar join with Franklin alongside several hundred Haushka troops.
Badger Hideout

You are coming with me Tobin. You tell the truth and I'll let you go. I promise.
Franklin Brent IV.

Following this information the forces of Franklin Brent move towards the location given to them by Swen and traveling the road he talks things over with Ottkar who does a good job at explaining why they did what they did in supporting the King. Arriving at the hideout they would surround the entire camp with their forces while Franklin, and Ottkar moved in on the hideout with an elite force of a hundred knights. Entering the camp the Badgers led by Harry Schwartz would attempt to surrender, and a discussion opened up about accepting their surrender, but when it seemed like they were going to allow them to live it was Ser Poliver of Brent that discovered the imprisoned Edmund Frotenhood and removed the coverings from his mouth. Allowed to speak Edmund would reveal the depths of violence committed on the orders of Harry Schwartz and the other badgers in the camp and unable to talk his way out of it Franklin would execute Harry on the spot. The remainder of the badgers in the camp were also executed with only Edmund being taken prisoner back to Hillsbrad where he would be tried and decided what his fate would be. Among the rescued prisoners was Esla Tollsen of whom would be offered assistance in returning to Castle Tollsen and her family but instead rejected this and took a horse alone heading to her childhood home of Highgarden. Tobin Aven would be taken prisoner during the assault on the hideout and taken back by Franklin Brent to Hillsbrad in order to testify as to what the actions of James Lovie had been.

Final Meeting

My brother what our father says is wrong. We are wrong. I will let Lord Greymane the truth of this and I shall accept whatever punishment I must. I cannot. I will not accept to be on the wrong side of what is right. I cannot.
Krandell Lerman

During this meeting Logan is once again impressed by Liam Greymane and after the meeting ends he is approached in private by his brother who reveals that he will be telling Liam about what actually happened and concerned that this action will lead to the imprisonment of his entire family he goes to his father and tells him what is going to happen and at his words his father quickly has his brother imprisoned and sent back to the Lerman seat of Lehaven. The chapter ends with Logan having betrayed his brother now in an extremely emotionally devastated state but returns with his father to Lehaven where he is overjoyed to see his uncle Wren again of whom is the man that Logan sees as his true father and the man he knows will tell him the truth of everything.

James Lovie's Suicide Attempt

James Lovie's Suicide Attempt

Main Article : James Lovie's Suicide Attempt

Esme Portmane Cover Amazing.jpg

I'm sorry James. There can be no doubting this. I watched you kill her with my own eyes.
Kieth Schwartz

Maergary would become a source of increased resistance to the corruption being suffered by her son James and in this resistance begin recalling people to the capital that had been friends of James during his better times. First bringing to the capital Charles Swan, and Eddard Starke the two former best friends of James found themselves shocked at what had happened to James. Both had seen the changes when he had returned from France, but the changes since they had left were beyond dramatic, and led both to vow to try and help there former best friend. As the attempts continued 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. 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 with Lisa now nearly comatose he commanded that word be sent for Esme to be brought back to Lucerne. Esme responded almost immediatly to the call to the return, and begin heading to Lucerne from Lorderon traveling with her daughter Diane but leaving behind Natalie, and Jamie with her family. As they waited for Esme to come to Lucerne the group was forced to put James into an almost constant state of use of opioids which kept Vhloraz at bay. When Esme arrived she was shocked to see the state of addiction he was in, but doing his best James asked them to listen as he told them the truth for the first time about what was happening to him.

The First Attempt

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 those near him that he felt a voice within him who called himself Vhloraz. He revealed this information to Kieth Schwartz, Khadgar, Esme Portmane, Charles Swan, Eddard Starke, and Witold Jestife and learning this they would in their first attempt to save James attempt to discover the purpose of Vhloraz. Kieth, Khadgar, 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, and Khadgar were 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 feverishly 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.

It started off with good intentions.
Aelfwynn Turnidlon

Following this event it was Kieth that decided to begin shielding James from events like this through the assistence of both Lothar Guntbold, and the increasingly prominent Aelfwynn Turnidlon. Aelfwynn was commanded to create illusions for James which made him believe that those who were being killed, or the bad decisions being made were either deserved or out of his control. Lothar would assign his enchanter Wuldrik Toyne to assist Aelfwynn in this goal by creating memory loss spells that assisted in the stories and menipulations being done by Aelfwynn.

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.

Eddara Floren Cover4.jpg

I don't know what I expected about my return. I knew they would be angry, but I never thought I would have been completely hated by some, and irrelevant to others.
Edward Cullen

Following the ending of the betrothal between William Lovie III. and Amber Heard it was Eddara Floren that was called to the capital as a potential wife for William by his father and for Eddara this was a massive shock as she was relatively low level family and had never saw the possibility of marrying so high as a legitimate chance for her, and thus when she arrived there was a lot of nerves from her side, but the experienced William Lovie III. proved extremely charming and she quickly gained a major crush on him. The relationship between Eddara and William was put under threat as the loss of Alice, and Amber in short succession had led to a quite noticeable drop in the morality of William Lovie III., and waking up from the coma had led to him coming out with constant strange dreams about a now unknown Alice leading to him being quite torn. William specifically would come to destroy his relationship with Eddara as she discovered how gentle and good a person she was which led to him having his father send her away as he didn't want to hurt her or bring her down to what he believed was his new level. Eddara for her part was devastated by this as she had come to be in love with William as during there time together he had never showed her anything but affection and love and she had not seen any of his weaknesses, and thus when she was told to return home without a word from him she would become extremely depressed and barely left her room upon her return home.

I truly believe that you love the prince. I believe that. The problem is I don't give a fuck.
James Lovie II.
Another girl who attempted to find her way into the heart of the prince was Candice Anthor of whom had arrived at the Lucernian Academy during the time of Alice's departure and still had become infatuated with William. The two would engage in a sexual relationship of which was a very emotional affair for Candice who fell deeply in her feelings of William but for William he was in the middle of his emotional breakdown and could give little of his heart to anyone. After Candice wakes up and feels sick and this leads to her throwing up. Following this she notices in the mirror that her stomach is larger and believes that she may pregnant. Candice goes to the local temple and meeting with a priestess there named Theodora Aerene of Lucerne her feelings of being pregnant are validated and thus she returns to her room at the academy where she has to think about who she should tell. Following the words of Theodora she went to see William but instead came to find Carlisle Cullen of whom was devoutly behind king James and in this loyalty would delay Candice from seeing William and instead told James. James would not be who Carlisle found but instead it was Vhloraz who had control of James at the time and in a move that would horrify James - as he thought the one thing that Vhloraz could not do was gain control to try and hurt William - it was Vhloraz that was able to have Candice brought to him despite the attempts by James to retake control of his body.
Candice Anthor Gif5.gif
Candice found herself being summoned to the chambers of the most powerful man in the kingdom but also a man that she knew to be a monster, and a man that she knew was hated by William and so she was both excited and terrified about the prospects, but as she was escorted by several knights her choices were limited. Reaching the room she found the version of James controlled by Vhloraz and was shocked at the madness he displayed, but remained resolute as the man rained insults at her for believing that she was going to have the child of the prince. As she stood there the man she had always believed was the living embodiment of Glaurung's will would summon a spell and she felt screams from within her as James miscarried the child of her and William, and as the screams went silent she fell unconscious. Following this it was James that was able to retake control of the body, and in order to protect the girl he commanded Draco Highmore to take her to the estate of Catherine Lovie who when Draco arrived with the broken from of candice she was at a loss to what to do, but realized that the truth would help nothing, and then with the help of Draco was able to convince Candice once she woke up that the miscarriage had just happened and that visiting the king was a just a terrible dream.
Pushing William

Amber Heard II. Cover Amazing.jpg

Since Amber left I've had a lot of trouble feeling anything real. I wish I knew why she left.
William Lovie III.

William overcome with sadness because he can't stop thinking about Amber escapes his own bedroom which he had shared romantically with Leven the night before and in a lie he forces his cousin Marcel to back him on and then he goes to the Lucerne Lake where he sits by the water thinking of Amber Heard at first but as he falls into daydreaming he dreams of the shadow girl who he feels so close too dreaming of the two of them traveling to Lucerne Proper and then meeting with Britney Hemsworth. Following the dreams he has of the girl of which have been going on increasingly more frequently since coming out of his coma he travels back to the Sky Tower where he finds Faye Skane one of the girls that he has been sleeping with as of late waiting for him at the gates into the Sky Tower, and decides that since she is more clear on his emotional capabilities that he will invite her up. Taking Faye upstairs the two discuss her life back in Nostheim and William becomes disappointed in himself for not knowing more about her, and there conversation only stops when they begin kissing and sleep together. After sleeping together Faye sadly has to leave and William walks her out the two talking and William is happy to learn more about her they make plans to go to Nostheim in the summer something that excites them both.

I arrest him on the orders of the king. You may speak to your father tomorrow and I am positive that he will enlighten you to the crimes of this...of this man. Now while I deal with this Ser Gilbert please escort the prince upstairs.
Kieth Schwartz

Taking Blake up to his room is interrupted when as they enter the Sky Towers they see an argument and sending Brook upstairs William intervenes discovering that the guards have been arguing over the situation in Tree Hill, and William having only heard about Tree Hill in rumors attempts to get the guards to speak about it but is stopped by the arrival of Kieth Schwartz of whom silences the guards and has Gilbert Fouline take William upstairs. Arriving upstairs he is shocked by what he has learned from the argument and tries to talk about it with Blake but stops this when she takes her clothes off the moment they enter his room, and despite wanting to be better he sleeps with Blake Cullen the twin sister of his now returning former best friend. Waking up in the night William tries but cannot go back to sleep so leaves Blake in his bed and travels downstairs taking the lift accompanied by Gilbert, and Erik but after they reach the lift William is able to trick them and runs out of the palace using a trick he thinks about learning back with Amber and makes his way through the city towards the estate of House Martell. While he is doing this he doesn't know that he is being watched by Lornax who having taken on the form of his mother Lisa Tyrell follows him as he makes his way towards House Martell. Lornax has become increasingly driven to stay near William who by this point is increasingly powerful in his Dragonborn abilities and his power is like a beacon for Lornax.

Leven Martell Gif.gif
Reaching House Martell he climbs the window to Leven's room and entering her room she wakes when he lies down beside her and without a word he brings her into his arms and they hold each other as William falls asleep. Waking in the morning the two begin kissing but this ends with a bang at the door and William hears Kieth yelling downstairs and without a word the two start laughing and get their clothes on going out the window running towards the caves. Unable to get out of the estate Leven helps William by tackling Ser Erik allowing William to get out of the estate but as he runs through the streets he finds Draco Highmore waiting for him and realizing he has been caught he catches his breathe, but when he looks back up his mother is standing behind Draco and puts a hand to his neck and Draco falls unconscious. Stunned to see his mother who hasn't left the top of the tower in years he walks up to her, but before he can say anything she tells him to have fun in the caves and disappears into nothing. William is pushed to move by the sounds of guards shouting for him, and despite the tears at seeing his mother he keeps running until he reaches the caves of Lucerne, where he finds the bed he has left there and lays down and tries to understand what just happened. Woken from his dreams by the arrival of Kieth Schwartz the two talk for some time with Kieth trying to make William see that hes wasting his talents hiding and doing all the things hes doing and convinces William to persuade his father to give him more responsibilities and with this in mind the two travel back to the Sky Tower to meet with Bill.

Bretney. Eddara. Leven. Blake. Amber. Oh Amber. I have hurt so many people. So much is expected of me and yet I am doing nothing. Mother please. Please tell me how to make this better. Please.
William Lovie III.

Arriving back at the Sky Towers he finds Draco Highmore waiting for him and once he gets on the lift and it begins to rise he asks Draco to stop it and then he apologizes to Draco for what happened in the street, and Draco accepts his apology but when he brings up his mother Draco does not remember this saying that she hasn't left her room and all he remembers is William throwing a rock at him. Confused as to what actually happened William commands the lift to raise again and travels up the lift but asks Draco to go past his fathers office where he knows his father is, and instead stops on the floor where his mother has come to be hidden away. Getting off on the floor he goes into his mothers room and finds her sitting at a table eating a small meal, and going to sit at the table with her she makes no movement to show that she knows he is in the room with her and instead is just mumbling to herself. William attempts to get her to speak telling her that he saw her in the street and pleads with her to speak to him, but despite all his efforts she did not make any more, and he left the room crying. Going into the hallway he closes the door behind him and with tears in his face shares a look with Draco who doesn't say anything just walks up to him and William goes to him hugging him as he has come to see Draco as a father figure.
