Coup of Tevinter
Main Article : Tevinter Civil War
| The Fall of Tevinter |
Look around you Sepheron. Look around you and you will see the truth of all this. The monsters are at the door, and all its going to take for them to get in is if you open the door. Do not let them in.
The forces of Lord Voldermorte had been badly damaged by the defeat of Westbridge in 5130 but there was a loyalist element for him to take refuge with in the Empire of Tevinter. While the ruling Archon, and many of the Magisters rejected Lord Voldermorte, there were sizable elements of the Magisters, and the entire Kingdom of Neromenian that would side with him, but he needed to remove the current Archon, and many of his loyal Magisters if he was to take control of Tevinter. With this in mind the fully loyal Clary Folwyn was sent to the capital where she stayed close to the extremely skilled Sepheron and kept him from fully doing his duty watching the Deatheaters as they grew inside the capital. Because of Clary's work the Deatheaters took sizable positions within the Magisters, and several Magisters were turned to their side, and with that the moment had come where the Deatheaters were ready to take control of Tevinter. The only remaining piece was to take full control over the Tevinter Chantry so that they would have a foothold in every kingdom. Using the Magisters they controlled they spent months eliminating threats in the other Kingdoms, and they were able to do this without any interference from Sepheron of whom was deeply enthralled with Clary of whom had become pregnant again, but feigned illness of which caused Sepheron to stay near her most days and passing the duties of his positon to Vezhlen Uz-Poellen of whom was from Neromenian and was a member of the Deatheaters. With the head of the Flower Guard and basically the internal police now a deatheater, and the leadership of the Tevinter Chantry in their power they would make their move against the Archon and the remaining loyalists.
Arriving at the capital in heavy numbers, and bringing forth all of their forces at the same time the Deatheaters under Lord Voldermorte would take control of the capital without any of the loyalists having any kind of awareness of it. While there control of the capital was mainly secure there were loyalists who could not be dislodged such as the Flower Guard general Teleron Dunesterian of whom with his loyalty to the Archon unquestionable he would be commanded to leave the capital with a force of some ten thousand men of the Flower Guard, of which left the Flower Guard a greatly diminished force in the capital with the remaining numbers dwindled to barely a few thousand and of these many were of questionable loyalty. With the capital in their hands they moved forward and had Clary Folwyn convince Sepheron that something massive was happening and that the entire Magister Countil needed to be called in and the Archon needed to meet with Sepheron himself during the council. Sepheron demanded to know what this was about but she said she would tell him during the council meeting, and Sepheron loved her so deeply that he believed her and did what she asked. As the loyalist Magisters and council members entered the capital and made their way to the Palace of Tevinter the Deatheaters moved in their entirety to the Palace and the traitor Magisters entered the meeting. It was not allowed to bring weapons into these meetings, and the only ones that carried any sort of weapon were the Holy Magisters of whom had their staffs, and thus could perform Magi easily. The Holy Magisters were under the Deatheaters loyalty and thus a massacre was without a doubt going to happen.
As the council meeting begin Sepheron would enter the Council Room with Clary and as they entered he stopped her and one last time told her how much he loved her, and for a moment she thought on his survival but before she could stop herself he kissed her and pulled her with him. Entering the council grounds Sepheron introduced Clary Folwyn of whom walked out with a staff of which Sepheron defended was because of her weakness due to her pregnancy, and he was listened to because of how respected he was. Despite her reluctance she played the role she was by this point fully involved in and she would explain the plot by the Deatheaters in its entirety outside of her role in the affair, and as panic broke throughout the ranks of the loyalist Magisters the meeting would halt as the doors smashed open and Lord Voldermorte walked in accompanied by dozens of Deatheaters. The Archon would be struck by a killing curse as he attempted to speak, and as Sepheron attempted to command the Holy Magisters they would strike him down, and before he could get up he was stabbed by the traitor Councillors, and Magisters of whom had brought daggers into the room. Clary watched as Sepheron was stabbed dozens of times, before all the loyalists in the room were massacred leaving Lord Voldermorte to pick up the crown of the Archon and take on the mantle of power.
During the Coup of Tevinter it would be Ailmar Dunesterian that turned on his family allowing the Death Eaters to enter the fortress of Castle Dunesterian and after hiding away his sister Irhaal he would systamically command the murder of nearly his entire family with only two of his brothers and one sister surviving and escaping the massacre outside of Irhaal of whom would be lied to after the fighting that the massacre was the work of Teleron.
The Public Culling
Following the crowing of Lord Voldermorte to the throne of Archon it would be the next stage that immediatly went into effect with the family members of Kenolith Deleron, and his closest supporters becoming the target of kidnappings. The Deatheaters spread throughout the city capturing the entire remaining members of House Deleron, and the allied House Neterun of whom were held in the prison beneath the palace itself. While the coup had been happening Ameria Deleron had been hiding her brother Ilhahir away after while they were walking in the market she had seen several men she knew had been with Clary before following them. Going into an alleyway she would ambush the two men killing them after they tried to take her and Ilhahir and leaving their body in the alley she would hide him with the members of a retired palace guardsmen she knew to be honorable. Following this she tried to return to her home to get her sister and warn her father, mother and brother, but by the time she returned the coup was done and she was captured alongside her sister and taken to the prisons beneath the palace.
Following her capture she would be tortured by many people but refused to give up the position of her brother despite all of the pain being done to her. As the torture continued with no movement on her giving up what she knew she was pained even more as more and more loyal nobles were brought into the cells surrounding her and she was forced to look all of them in the face before they were put in cells, but despite this she protected her brothers location. With the desire to find Ilhahir very strong among the leadership and specifically Lord Voldermorte they would send in Clary Folwyn who they hoped could trick Ameria.
With Lord Voldermorte as the new Archon of the Tevinter Empire the Death Eaters would be forced to move quickly to consolidate their holdings and one of the main organizations that was needed to be dealt with was the Flower Guard of whom despite being led by the Death Eater Vezhlen Uz-Poellen was now openly turning against what was happening with the most notable example being Teleron Dunesterian of whom was now fighting open battles in western Tevinter. Under the words of Vezhlen Uz-Poellen the Flower Guard would be in his own words temporarily suspended as an order due to what he says was a completel failure in protecting the Archon, and all members of the Flower Guard were commanded to return to the capital. Despite this order the only members of the Flower Guard to return were those who had already sworn themselves to the Death Eaters and these forces under the command of Vezhlen Uz-Poellen would form the Laeten Guard which would stand as the new Flower Guard. Those Flower Guard who had not turned against their vows remained the vast majority of the overall order and they would retreat into the mountains of Shiver, moved north towards the forces of Telerono Dunesterian, or retreated into Hogwarts leaving the successful destruction of the Flower Guard all but complete.
Return to Prison
Following her return to the prisons beneath the palace she was emotionally broken but after weeks in the cell she begin a strong friendship with another cellmate in the form of Nestril Hiltrien, and also a prison guard named Costor Devrietria of which both would turn her away from the hopelessness and move her towards a goal of revenge.
Locked in the walls of the cell she and Nestril grew to become best friends and as Costor fell in love with her he came to allow them to spend time outside of their cells and it was during this time that Ameria came to also fall in love with Costor.
Following another guard discovering her outside of her cell dancing with Costor, the situation deterioted as Costor was forced to kill the guard and revealed he planned to help the two escape, and then revealed to uniforms for them and then led them out of the prison. Upon reaching the gates of the city he would be struck by an arrow and the two girls reacted to the arrival of Clary Folwyn of whom after a brief three way fight tried to kill Nestril but was knocked out by Ameria with the butt end of her sword, but when she went to finish Clary she was stopped by the arrival of many guards and was just barely able to get Costor onto a horse and escape with Nestril and Costor.
