Living at the court of Dustenvale her father came to watch as she became increasingly popular due to her beauty, and high intelligence, and she gained even more fame when she took over leadership of the Dustenvale Academy. As the Lady of the Dustenvale Academy she expanded the enrollment by lowering the fees and the nobility requirements allowing in many so called lesser nobles, but when asked why by her father she simply said that the more nobles children they had around them the safer they would be from uprising.

Mary and Owain were nearly at the point of engagement when the Lucernians and Boltens went to war, and the Ironborn attacks begin to launch all across the lands of the Brightmyre's, and because of this she was forcefully recalled by her father to Dustenvale until the situation had quieted. Returning to Dustenvale heartbroken about leaving Owain she would not stay in the capital long as she got into an argument with her father and travelled to the western lands in order to try and make sure that the Whitewood's remained in the Dustin sway despite the encroachment of Lucerne.

Mary Dustin Cover
I was getting tired in Dustenvale with all the things I was doing. It was exhausting constantly trying to improve things, and take control, but I felt like I had to in order to get respect. I went to Dusseldorf not looking for love, or power. I went to Dusseldorf wanting to rest.
Mary Dustin

Mary Dustin would be growing her influence in the capital, and as she was constantly working at this her father would talk to her about how exhausted she looked some nights, and she took this to heart. Realizing she was still young she would jump at the oppurtunity to accompany her father, and half brother Peter Dustin as they travelled westward for the Dusseldorf Tournament of 5130. The tournament was being hosted by the Whitewood's in order to show that their next generation was very proud of being a part of the Kingdom of Dustin. Each major house of Dustin would send a young noble to the tournament, and the jousting was fought over by the young heirs of all the noble houses and many of the more minor houses. At some point during the tournament Owain Brightmyre would overhear Quentin Brightwood talking with his uncle about how stupid the Dustin's were, and Owain confronted him on what he said but Quentin denied ever saying it, and this caused a great deal of resentment and anger between the two nobles. The two's rivalry only increased when the younger Owain Brightmyre defeated Quentin Whitewood during the final match of the jousting and was made the victor of the tournament by Quentin's father. In a further slap to the face Owain would name Mary Dustin the Queen of Love and Beauty and it was during this moment that Quentin first truly came to meet Mary as she fled the main tent into the forests after all the attention exhausted her. Quentin and Mary would talk for some time and during this talking they both discovered that while they loved their family they both found the role of a young noble exhausting some times and they were only seperated when she was found by her guards and brought back to her family.

Mary Dustin GIf1
You understand son it was all planned. We brought all the nobles here, and showed them how much valor and honor you had. We showered them with the image of you as the perfect young knight. And then we showed them Trystane and made sure that everyone of those Dust nobles knew what kind of young man he was.
Doran Whitewood to Quentin Whitewood

Following this Quentin returned to the camp with Mary and the two discovered a large commotion as apparently Quentin's younger brother Trystane had been caught by the Hornwood's attempting to raid a farm on Hornwood land. Captured at the site the Hornwood's had sent a large force to hold him, and it was in this situation that Mary Dustin would acompany her father and brother alongside the Whitewood's to the site where they negotiated with the Hornwood's to release Trystane. The negotiations didn't go well at first but Mary Dustin would be able to convinse them to release Trystane back to them after promicing to begin increased trading with the Hornwood's. Returning to Dusseldorf Mary was unable to see Quentin again but was stopped by Owain Brightmyre who commended her bravery and told her that he was proud to have such a noble, and beautiful lady at the capital. Following this Mary, and the Dustin's left Dusseldorf alongside all of the non-Gothic nobles and with their departure it was revealed to Quentin that Trystane's attack was a planned affair meant to show how rebellious Trystane was and how honorable Quentin was.

Time in Barrowton

I had planned to do nothing more then menipulate them into doing what I wanted, but when I got there it all got harder. These weren't the stupid water princes I thought they would be. They were kind, and gentle, and for the first time I felt no joy in their fall.

Leaving Barrowton

You see Mary Dustin right now you look at me and you see a bandit. A common criminal. Maybe you pity me. Maybe you don't. But in the end none of that means a thing, as soon...and that will be sooner then you imagined. Soon you will see what I really am. Soon you and all of yours will look at me and wish you had seen the truth, a long time ago.
