Leyton Mountain as a young man would become very interested in the Spire of Uthor which was the tallest of the Spires of Kiel, and in this interest he eventually found a book called Cornices Atque Tactus which he would begin reading from and become silently a worshiper of the books creator the Chaos Titan Aggalan. Throughout his youth Leyton would become twisted by his reading of the book, and eventually developed an entirely separate personality to cope with the things that the book begin telling him to do. Leyton would be convinced by the book to murder his wife Rhaehan and he did this leaving her body desecrated on the steps of the Great Temple of Aerene in Kiel in a murder that sparked unrest in the town but the book had assisted him in hiding his actions leading to him not being caught. Leyton would be emotionally destroyed by the death of his father and brother at the Battle of Lyons, and in this depression he was named the Grand Lord of Hohenstein marking him as one of the most powerful men in the Grand State of the Westerlands. The new power he had received did not sit well on him, and he became quickly overwhelmed by the new role leading to his retreat within the Spire of Uthor refusing to have anyone see him for fear that the book would make him do something terrible. This terrible action would come when his mother and sister in law confronted him in the Spire of Uthor and despite begging them not to come inside they did not listen and were killed by Leyton who after sacrificing them to the book was able to escape the tower. The confrontation with his mother would lead to him leaving the Spire of Uthor for several years and during this time he married his third wife Paulina Mountain, and also during this time his daughter Malora discovered what had happened in the tower and begin seeking assistance for her father eventually finding help with the Valkyrie Roswita. In order to destroy the book Malora and Roswita lured him back inside the Spire of Uthor where they tricked him into using the book and then pulled the book into the Fade, but to their horror Leyton was left a husk with his body spirit having been living within the book leaving Roswita to take over his body and Malora coming to live within the tower to protect this secret.

|The Meeting of the Western Lords|
My father made sure I knew three things going into that meeting. Firstly I was to be as rude to the Greymane`s as I could. Secondly I was to try and talk to the Brents and get a dialogue going between our two houses. Finally I was to make it extremely clear that we would under no circumstances assist William. Well at least I talked to Franklin Brent.
With William Lovie III. leaving Lucerne for the event that would become later known as The Journey the rest of the Kingdom became increasingly positive about his actions, but also throughout the Valley of Lucerne there was significant discussion on what to do as the previous time someone had moved against Bill Lovie it had resulted in The Plague. In the city of Hillsbrad the Arch Lord in House Greymane would call an assembly of all of his vassals of which included every major house in western Hillsbrad without exception and without ability for the houses to decline invitation. Arriving in Hillsbrad the meetings began with Genn Greymane talking of the continued consequences of them allowing the current King to wield unending power, and that their only chance of survival was to find this William Lovie III. and help him achieve victory. Vincent Godfrey would openly support King Bill Lovie and said as a warning to all those around that the last time anyone tried to resist him they were destroyed in The Plague. Franklin Brent would stand on the other side openly speaking of supporting William , and these two would continue to argue for minutes as other lords stepped in siding with their respective lords, and this continued for some time. As the arguing continued it was Franklin Brent III. that would arrive and brought his prison Tobin Aven into the meeting and with the support tilting against William at this time his testimony would be of great importance. Tobin Aven that would testify as to what he had been ordered to do and this greatly changed the mood of the meeting, and allowed Demi Snow to stand up and state that her family was one hundred percent behind William and was going to send forces to assist him immediately, and this information shocked the other houses as everyone had assumed that they were not going to do anything like they always did. Still without her Lord father`s support she would during the meeting commit to sending one hundred men immediately with the larger force being sent by the Greymane`s and after this promise there was little that her father could do to turn against it. As a part of the meeting it was Tobin Aven that was imprisoned within Greymane Estate and would be held there while he awaited trial from William Lovie III. as due to the information he had it was deemed that only William could decide his fate.
With the support of House Crowley the movement of some of the houses would change as all the Crowley loyalists quickly jumped on board with this plan as most had wanted to do this but didn't due to their belief that Vincent Godfrey would never have supported this.
Demi Snow following the ending of the meeting would take to staying near Andrew Garfield of whom accompanied her back to her families estate. Spending some time there getting the one hundred men she had promiced she would leave shortly after and return with Andrew to the assembling party outside of the eastern gate. By this point hours later her father learned of what she had done, and left the Crowley castle hours west of Hillsbrad and attempted to return to Hillsbrad. Demi realizing that her father was going to do something like that left with the hundred men of House Crowley ahead of the main Hillsbrad force heading for Forks.
Demi Hill Marries
Following the arrival of the Hillsbrad force in Forks Demi Snow would continue with the next step of her plan when she handed a letter of forged consent of marriage to Andrew`s father Harron Garfield of whom knew that his son desperately wanted to marry Demi, and knew that the match was perfect for his house so he jumped at the opportunity. Realizing that she couldn`t return unmarried or else her father would put an end to her scheming she persuaded Andrew and his father to have the ceremony in Forks so that she could truly be a part of their family during The Journey. Following her persuasion the marriage happened with the large Dragon Temple of Forks and Demi Snow became Demi Garfield and was now protected so she believed from the actions of her brother Dexter.
