Laera Steinmare is the daughter of Flaurance, and Lucas Griffon making her a member of House Griffon. Laera Steinmare has two siblings in the form of Dalia, and Otto Griffon of whom Dalia is a loyal member of House Griffon and since their mother's injuries she has been the main one running the internal matters of House Griffon, while her brother Otto is the heir of House Griffon and runs the operations of House Griffon. Laera Steinmare fell in love with Dylan Steinmare while they were attending the Lucernian Academy and this love was seen as a positive thing by both families who encouraged their eventual marriage, and thus she became a member of House Steinmare. With Dylan Steinmare she has mothered two children in the form of Volkhad, and Liara Steinmare of which which Liara is still very young at the time of the Rise of Lucerne, while Volkhad is squiring for Tristifer Griffon of whom is training him in the art of the Griffins.

Laera Steinmare was born the oldest of the two children of Lucas Griffon, and a the time of her birth she stood as the third in the line of succession behind her cousin Jaeson, and behind her elder sister Dalia leaving her as a prominent member but her position was constantly at threat due to her gender. During her youth she was very close with both her sister and her mother, but she resented the lack of time that her father was in Brill (he preferred to stay in Lucerne) and thus wasn't close with him. At the age of twelve she was sent to the Lucernian Academy in order to gain education but more importantly to gain influence which would assist her in finding a good marriage partner, but due to her age she would travel there as one of the youngest members of the Academy. While staying in Lucerne her father became a greater source of interaction and while staying with her father at the House Scarlet estates she grew close to her father who having historically mainly lived in Lucerne discovered many similarities with his daughter and this relationship would blossom. At the age of fifteen she fell in love with Dylan Steinmare and the two became quick lovers, and shortly after this she told her father of whom made Dylan aware that he was willing to have the two married. After this acceptance they were married at the age of sixteen, and she became pregnant with their first child at seventeen during the events of the Journey of which Dylan joined in. Laera Steinmare would travel with Dylan into the south of Tevinter where she would become the main lady in charge of the baggage train, and did this despite the stigma of the invovlment of a women in this aspect, and this all took away her from the fact that her relationship with Dylan Steinmare was deterioting due to his increasing level of affairs.

Early History

Laera Steinmare5
"Staying in Brill meant that you were in a big city, but in so many ways I didn't understand until I left for Lucerne it just didn't have the importance of Lucerne. Everything about Lucerne was just so bustling, and constantly evolving that you couldn't help but fall in love with the city. I see now why my father loved Lucerne so much."

Steimare in Lucerne

Laera Steinmare Large21
Every noble boy dreams of the chances I was given, and I was determined not to waste it. I wouldn't come here and not leave with what I wanted. I would do what was necessary.
Dylan Steinmare

During his youth Dylan Steinmare would be sent to Lucerne alongside his half sister and fake twin sister Erica Steinmare where she would join the Lucernian Academy while he would not technically join the Academy but became the squire of Draco Highmore of whom was constantly at the Academy due to being the main gaurd of William Lovie III. Dylan and his sister Erica had grown far closer then they had with their other brother Martin, and in truth the relationship between Erica and Martin was not simply not strong but it was in fact filled with a lot of anger towards Erica from Martin, and thus it was easy for them to determine that Erica should go with Dylan to Lucerne. Dylan and Erica arrived in Lucerne and were met by Draco, and his son Freddie Highmore of whom would escort them to their temporary homes with the Highmore's, and arriving there they expected due to the modesty of the Highmore's that the home would be rough but instead they found a luxurious home filled with the true wealth of the Highmore's. Dylan Steinmare during his time in Lucerne as the squire to Draco Highmore would become a well respected young man of whom befriended Jasper Hale, and through this friendship would become involved in some major things and also meet Laera Griffin. While escorting Jasper Hale, and William Lovie III. they were present when Hostella Hale was killed in the drowning accident, and as Jasper's friend Dylan took this very negatively towards Edward Cullen and would never forgive him for what had happened, but as the fight broke up he would remain behind with Freddie Highmore, and while they were guarding the scene with many other men at arms they were approached by Emma Bell of whom brought several of her friends of which one was Laera Griffin.

She was beauty beyond anything I had seen before. I loved her from that moment, and I will continue to love her for all the rest of the moments of my life.
Dylan Steinmare

Emma Bell, and her friends were able to convinse Freddie to tell them what had happened, and after this Freddie said they would escort the girls back to their homes, and Dylan followed him, but veered off to take Laera home personally as she was staying with the Scarlet's and their home that she was staying in was in Lucerne Proper. Walking and talking they got to be good friends, and she made sure to let him know that whenever she saw him she expected he would speak to her. This relationship would grow quickly over the next weeks from simple friendship to a sexual relationship of which obviously because of their non-marital status never was fully consumated, but they were both openly talking about a marriage between the two, and they both planned to tell their parents while their parents visited them at the Nortburg Tournament. As they waited for this Dylan would be forced to deal with a situation where his supposed twin sister Erica Steinmare was being harassed by a young noble named Dolan Tarbeck, and just as he was about to fight him over it he watched as Liam Greymane II. would step in and knock out Dolan Tarbeck with a single punch, before taking Erica away from the scene and leaving behind a crowd of hollaring young nobles.

Dylan Steinmare and Laera Steinmare Gif
I truly wanted that victory, and I prayed to the Dragon for the first time in my life. I have forever after prayed to the Dragon, as he gave me what I needed on that day.
Dylan Steinmare

It was at the Nortburg Tournament of 5122 that Dylan Steinmare, and Laera Griffin would finally get their chance at sealign their marriage prospects as while Dylan's mother visited quite often and knew of what Dylan planned this would be the first time that Laera had seen her mother and father since she had left for Lucerne. Dylan would escort his father, and uncle who had also made the trip alongside his mother to Nortburg, and when he arrived there he told his father that he had met the girl he wanted to marry, and that he would prove his value when he won the tournament, and declared her the Queen of Love and Beauty for the tournament. His father remained impassive, but nodded at Dylan before Dylan left to go and find Freddie Highmore and get prepared for his first joust. Laera would have much more success seemingly with her parents of whom jumped at the oppurtunity to marry a growing in influence young squire of whom by all acounts was friends with the crown prince.

I knew somewhere inside of me that I was deeply in love with him before he won at Nortburg, but seeing his grace, and honor would seal everything for me.
Laera Steinmare

The Jousts would go in his favor as he defeated Ian Trant, then his friend Emmett McCarty, and then his enemy Edward Cullen of whom he would embaress following the victory by taunting him after he had knocked Edward off his horse. In the final rounds he would defeat the very talented Franklin Brent, and then Logan Lerman and winning the tournament he would name Laera Griffin his Queen of Beauty and Love, and then in front of the entire crowd would choose knighthood over the dowry being offered to him by Catherine Bell. Choosing who would knight him he chose Draco Highmore, and he was knighted in front of everyone and Laera held his hand as he was knighted. Following this Laera, and Dylan's parents would meet with them, and both reavealed that the bethrothal would happen, and the victory in the tournament was never going to determine whether it happened.

Marriage and a New Life

Laera Steinmare3
I didn't see any reason to hold off the wedding as there wasn't a single sliver of doubt within me that she wasn't the girl of my dreams. I loved everything about her, and I really couldn't imagine another moment where she wasn't mine.
Dylan Steinmare

Following his victory at the tournament, and the admission by their parents that there betrothal was accepted by them it was openly made clear by Dylan that the two didn't wish to wait any longer to be married. Laera's father Lucas Griffin was resistant to this as he knew that Dylan had befriended many powerful people and he wanted to host a truly amazing wedding that everyone in the Kingdom of Lucerne would be amazed at, but Dylan would speak to Lucas and in no uncertain words reveal that unless the wedding happened soon then he couldn't promise there wouldn't be a bastard birth in their future. Afraid again of what Dylan might do Lucas attempted to have Laera return with them to Griffin's Castle but when Laera this was the plan she snuck out of the home her parents were staying in and found her way to Dylan. Seeing that they couldn't hide their daughter until the wedding they set a date of three months from them, and Dylan was able to dissuade some of their fears when he revealed that with the wedding being held in Lucerne it would be attended by William Lovie III. and his Shadow Council.

I was standing as straight as I possibly could the first time I had saw her. I wanted to be respected, and I had always followed Draco's lead in that regard. Seeing her though I think from that moment forward pushed me onto my own path. Seeing her made me realize that respect wasn't enough, as I now needed her love.
