Oberyn Martell II. is a Vandal and the son of Quentin and Jane Martell making him a member of House Martell. Oberyn has two siblings in the form of Doran, and Krella Martell of which Doran is the logitimat patriarch of House Martell but due to a bad case of gout he is barely seen outside of the House Martell estates and has thus allowed Oberyn to be the face of House Martell, his sister Krella is a kind and gentle noblewomen that has raised many of the children of House Martell. Oberyn Martell has never married or had any legitmate children, but he does have eight bastard children, called the "Snow Snakes", the four youngest of which by his current paramour Ellaria Sand of House Sand

Oberyn Martell II. was born in Lucerne Hold, and being a member of House Martell meant that he wouldn't want for anything but he chose a different path. In his youth, Oberyn was fostered at Sandstone, where he trained alongside the members of the powerful House Yronwoods. At sixteen, Oberyn was found in bed with the paramour of Lord Ormond Yronwood, so the lord challenged him to a duel. The duel was to first blood, given the prince’s youth and high birth, and both took cuts. Lord Ormond's wounds festered and killed him. Oberyn has been known as the "Red Viper" ever since by friends and foes alike since, due to rumors that he fought the duel with a poisoned blade. Following this despite the calls from his parents to return to Lucerne Oberyn traveled extensively in Westros, where he learned much about poisons and perhaps even darker arts. He had studied at the Citadel, going so far as to forge six links of a maester's chain before he grew bored. He had soldiered in the Disputed Lands across the Narrow Sea, riding with the Second Sons for a time before forming his own company. It is said that he beds both men and women, and has begotten bastard girls all over Europe. The Sand Snakes, men call them. During his travels as the members of the "Sand Snakes" grew he constantly sought them out, and each one was sent back to Lucerne where they live under the last name of Sand in the small vassal House Sand but all known them to be a member of House Martell. Shortly after the Invasion of Westbridge Oberyn Martell would become the Lord of House Martell following the death of his brother finally from the gout that had afflicted him for much of his adult life, and in this position he appeared a recluse to outsiders but in fact he was gaining influence with his vassals and working on increasing the weaker position of his family. When Westros was going up in flames it was Oberyn Martell that volunteered the forces of House Martell to engage the enemy in return for the spoils they recieved and a port along the Bolten side of the Rhine River. Agreeing with the requests from Oberyn Martell II. the forces of House Martell would land near Grandlen and move east towards the siege of Karhold. Finding the forces of House Starke embroiled in a tough siege they would provide much needed reinforcements to the eastern part of the siege and broke past the first tier of walls and took control of the wealthy district of the town capturing much of the remaining House Karstark allied nobles. Oberyn would be devestated during the fighting by the death of his sister Krenna Martell of whom fell fighting in a duel against a Karstark man.

History

Early History

"I’ll tell you a secret, something they don’t teach you in your temple. The gods envy us. They envy us because we’re mortal, because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now, and we will never be here again."
-Oberyn Martell II.

Oberyn Martell II. was born in Lucerne Hold, and being a member of House Martell meant that he wouldn't want for anything but he chose a different path. In his youth, Oberyn was fostered at Sandstone, where he trained alongside the members of the powerful House Yronwoods.

House Yronwoods

Main Article : House Yronwoods

At sixteen, Oberyn was found in bed with the paramour of Lord Ormond Yronwood, so the lord challenged him to a duel. The duel was to first blood, given the prince’s youth and high birth, and both took cuts. Lord Ormond's wounds festered and killed him. Oberyn has been known as the "Red Viper" ever since by friends and foes alike since, due to rumors that he fought the duel with a poisoned blade.

Travelling

Following this despite the calls from his parents to return to Lucerne Oberyn traveled extensively in Westros, where he learned much about poisons and perhaps even darker arts. He had studied at the Citadel, going so far as to forge six links of a maester's chain before he grew bored. He had soldiered in the Disputed Lands across the Narrow Sea, riding with the Second Sons for a time before forming his own company. It is said that he beds both men and women, and has begotten bastard girls all over Dorne. The Sand Snakes, men call them. During his travels as the members of the "Sand Snakes" grew he constantly sought them out, and each one was sent back to Lucerne where they live under the last name of Sand in the small vassal House Sand but all known them to be a member of House Martell.

Return

When his older brother became to be reduced more and more by the gout Oberyn returned to Lucerne where he decided to lead the house publically since his brother no longer could. In control of House Martell he became somewhat a recluse, but he was silently gaining the influence of the House Martell vassals, and was expanding their personal forces for what he knew would be an eventual deployment by William.

The Journey

Main Article : The Journey

The Early Arrival
You just sent me away Will. You sent me away on what I thought was a real reason, but from where I stand it looks like it was worth nothing. You could have sent any of them, but instead you sent me. I did what you asked me and in return I lost everything I had ever dreamed of. I must now stand here and watch the future I dreamed lived out with that Italian. I lost everything while I was away. For nothing. For absolutely nothing. What makes it worse is you still can't see.

Going to Stormwind

Leven Martell Red.jpg
I trusted William with my life, and it was the only reason that I would have ever travelled so far from anything I knew. His belief in me pushed me forward, and drove me to be better then I could ever have been without him.
Leven Martell

Leven alongside her sisters, Lyanna Starke and Ellia Snow would join with a group of twelve Martell men at arms of whom was sent to join them on their trip to Stormwind, as well as a group of four men at arms for House Fraizen who were led by Taelan Fraizen to also accompany them to Stormwind. The group would arrive at the tiny port of Castle Dalmatia and stayed the night there meeting briefly with Landsgrave Modius Dalmatia of whom Leven did not reveal anything she thought to be important but gave enough when she revealed that she had been sent by William. Modius was a devout loyalist to James having been at the Battle of Lyons and this loyalty led to him sending his brother Decius Dalmatia to Lucerne to find out what was happening. Leven and her party left the next morning accompanied this time by Appius Dalmatia the heir of House Dalmatia who Modius had given orders to watch everything Leven did and then come back. Arriving at the port of Littleheim south of Stormwind they would not reveal their purpose and made no attempt to meet with local leadership and instead made their way directly to the city of Stormwind. As they made their way northward it was Lyanna Starke that would be saddened by how little assistence she was able to provide for their journey as she barely remembered her former home. Reaching the outskirts of the city there arrival was expected by House Starke who met Leven Martell and her group with Robb Starke of whom would be sent as the envoy for the house since Brandon, and Eddard Starke had traveled to the south in order to meet the Lannisters and try and get them to join with William Lovie III. and thus assist the young prince. Robb immediately became the source of much interest for Leven`s sister Obella of whom would watch him very closely and he would do the same as he alongside his father`s vassals led them throughout Stormwind. Getting Leven a room in the Starke estate in Stormwind she and her sisters would get a good sleep in before their busy day the next day. Leven and her sisters would wake the next day and meet with Robb Starke again of whom told them that Eddard had promised the entire support of House Starke to the efforts of William Lovie. Robb Starke would take her throughout the city of Stormwind where Robb and her sister Obella Martell grew closer and closer before eventually Leven suggested that Robb show Obella privately the second tier of the city while she and her sister Dorea Martell were escorted by Robb's sister Sansa Starke of whom showed herself to be a beautiful and charismatic young lady just younger then Leven, but the same age as Dorea.

Carlisle had told me to expect stiff resistence to the idea of going behind the kings back. He hadn`t told me they hated the king without pause.
Leven Martell
On the second day of their stay in Stormwind it would be Eddard and Brandon Starke that arrived back in Stormwind accompanied by a large force of House Starke. Following introducing himself it would be Eddard Starke that would meet with Leven alone, as she would make it clear in letters from William that she was a completely trusted member of his forces.
Leven Martell Stormwind.gif
Eddard thus spoke openly to her in a way that they were unable to do in letters, and really let her know about the things that James Lovie had done and the level of hatred the people had for him. Revealing to her first as well that he believed he had failed in his goal of gaining the support of the Lannisters he was dismayed that it seemed to him that the Lannisters would support the regime, but Leven was thankful for him having even attempted that knowing from her lessons how much division there was between the Lannisters and Starke's. At nearly this same time Decius Dalmatia would arrive in Lucerne where he would attempt to seek an audiance with James Lovie II. in order to let him know what was happening in the area. James was at this point battling for control with Vhloraz and thus was hidden away in the Cloud Tower by Khadgar, and Kieth and thus was not present at the Keep. Tristan Lovie would be told of the arrival of Decius by Tavin Slynt and learning of this he would meet with Decius and learn the location of Leven Martell and from the location of where she was going Tristan guessed that she would soon learn the extent of the rebellious elements of Lucerne. Taking the opportunity it would be Tristan that fabricated a letter from his father and gave this letter to Decius with the letter detailing his command to kidnap Leven Martell and bring her to Lucerne as a hostage.
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 wish nothing but the best for your friend, and the prince of the land in Lord William but his father isn't capable of leading anymore."

"So what are you suggesting?"

"I am suggesting Milady that prince William when he done in Forks should come to Stormwind and we shall do everything we can as a people to remove his father and place him on the throne." Picturing William on the throne was something I had done more times then I would ever admit to throughout my life, but hearing it out of the mouth of one of the most powerful men in Lucerne was something that I scarsley believed I had just heard.

"You understand I've know the King for my entire life."

"I know you have seen him your entire life, but my lady what do you truly know of this man." I thought about it and I had eaten dinner down the table from him hundreds of times, and what little had spoken while kind to me had always been for the ears of William. It was no secret that he wasn't a great man, but to suggest he was a tyrant as Eddard had wasn't something I understood.

"I'm not his blood, and he places the ideals of his family...prince William above all things." The honorable Eddard Starke could barely control himself at my near mistaken use of family over William. Sadly noone even his most direhard supporter would call Bill a family man. He was devoted to Will, but to his family...I dont think so.

"I'm sorry milady but when you are forced to exclude the entirety of his family outside of the prince he is not a family oriented man. I know the king well from when we were children, and the man I knew I can say is gone. He used to dote on his sister Catherine you know." He looked at me clearly wanting that to sink in. I had heard him yelling at Willliam's aunt but I had never seen any sort of time between them that would have indicated anything more then hate." For years she was everything to Bill. Then he met Lisa Tyrell and everything in his life just got even brighter."

"He loved her back then?" The fact that it was shocking that Bill loved his wife was something that struck me as odd. I had never thought of it before today, and that as well struck me as strange. 

"He loved Lisa Tyrell like there was not another soul in the world. I was there at that tournament when he made her the Queen of Love and Beauty and I watched the two fall in love as they stared at eachother. It was pure love. But milady...lady Martell when he returned from Lyons he was changed."

"Changed how?" I knew the Battle of Lyons well. Thousands upon thousands of Lucernians had gone to war, and but a slimmer had returned. The destruction of the human alliance at the battle was legendary, but I had never heard William's father mention it once, so hearing Eddard say it was a defining moment in his life was shocking to me. 

"Things no longer made him laugh. Everything was dark and twisted through his eyes. He pushed aside everything that had mattered to him including Lady Tyrell." He looked out the window as if remembering some distant event that pained him.

"Are you alright Lord Starke?"

"I'm fine milady just coming to terms with the fact that my old friend is gone was a painful thing to do, and its no easier now."

"You mean you came to this conclusion long ago?"

"Yes back during the days leading up to the Plague he was lost in madness and shouting during a meeting of the Lords and I realized it."

"The Plague my Lord?" As he went to speak a knock on the door brought our attention there and left the question hanging. 

"You may enter." The door opened immediately after and I saw Robb open the door. Behind him walking away was another Starke man I remember as Brandon Starke II. while accompanying him was my sister Obella of whom was most likely leaving Robbs side for the first time since we had arrived.

"Father there is a party of Lannisters entering the city who wish to meet as well with Lady Martell." Eddard nearly burst from his seat before coming around to my side of the table and grabbing my cloak from the hanger on the wall. 

"I am sorry Milady but we must cut our conversation short and meet with the Lannisters." He helped me up, and despite never needing the help I knew the reasons behind it, and I took his arm and pulled myself from the chair where he would place the cloak over my shoulders.

"I thought you believed it didn't go well speaking with Lord Tywin?"

"I guess the minds of people like the Lannisters are difficult to read for simple soldiers like me." He laughed as he said it before leading me out the door following behind Robb who led us through the winding hallways and out into the courtyard.

"Where are we to meet the Lannisters Ser Robb?"

"Meetings with the Lannisters are held in the High Keep." As he said High Keep I remembered from yesterday as we had made our way to the third teir of the city, and how high up it was. I wondered why two groups such as House Lannister, and House Starke would have ever thought it was a good idea to meet in a place so easily formed for throwing people off ledges in anger. Laughing to myself brought the attention of Robb of whom looked back and smiled to himself as if knowing I was laughing at some joke I told myself.

Walking along we were joined at the gate to the third tier by a young man dressed all in red armor, and a large Lion Emblem on his chest. It wasn't difficult to know he was a Lannister but Robb walked up to him and clasped his hand in what to me looked like friendship. The man smiled at Robb briefly exchanging words before the two laughed. The laughter of the two ended when me and Eddard reached them, and behind the young Lannister was approached by an older Lannister man with a massive Blond beard. 

"Lord Eddard Starke it has been a long time since I have seen you."

"It has Ser Stafford. What brings you and your nephew to the gates to meet us?" So the young man was the nephew of Ser Stafford Lannister. Thinking back to my class time that could mean it was Lucion, Lancel, or Tyrek Lannister. I doubted Lucion as he was known as Lame Lannister for his ugly appearance and slow brain, but Lancel or Tyrek were both possiblities.

Stafford Lannister stepped forwards staring at me before speaking "To meet with the beautiful Lady Martell is more then enough reason to come here Lord Starke." He gave me a strange look as he said it, and I felt my arms instinctively pull my cloak around me a little further. It was cold so the act would be seen as such, but it was meant for more then keeping the fall snow off me.

"From our last talks it didn't seem your brother was willing to make the trip."

"You must have mistaken. We left a few hours after you did, and we are more then happy to meet a representative of the true King of Lucerne in William Lovie third of his name." Well that was shocking, but if he had wanted to let it sink in he didn't wait long before he nearly immediately turned around summoning the younger Lannister with a look to follow behind him and led us towards High Keep.

During this conversation Eddard would first reveal the emotional damage that was caused against Bill Lovie during the Battle of Lyons including the fact of how kind, and funny a person that Bill Lovie was before the events of the Battle of Lyons. Also revealing the first mention of the fact that Bill Lovie was responsible for the destruction of the Lucernian city of Tree Hill this would be a shocking revelation for a girl that was one of the few people who had been almost always treated with kindness by the King as Leven was one of basically three people that Bill Lovie did not outright hate.

The Arrival of several Lannisters was shocking for everyone around, as Eddard had said the conversations hadn't indicated they would come. Something was changing in the air when the Starke's were willing to abandon the king, and the Lannisters were willing to do anything.
Leven Martell

As Leven talked with Eddard they were interrupted by Robb Starke entering to alert his father that several Lannisters had arrived in the city to meet with Leven. Eddard would lead Leven, and her sister to the Lannisters who waited in the main keep where it was said Tywin, Stafford, and Tyrek Lannister had come. Tywin would join Eddard and Leven in meeting, and Tywin appeared to Leven to be nothing like the man she had heard legends of back in Lucerne as this man in front of her discussed wanting to assist the prince, and wanting to eliminate the tyranny that his father had brought on the land. Eddard and Tywin would argue briefly over an event they called the Plague, but she knew nothing about it, so she made a note to find out about it later. Tywin did suggest that he wished to meet with the prince, as Eddard had and Leven knew her time in Stormwind was over and her time for returning to William was upon her he had one major truth to reveal. Eddard would take Leven to the top of Stormwind once more where joined by his wife he would reveal to Leven that James had orchestrated the destruction of Tree Hill, and that he was still actively resisting attempts to save those inside the city. Horrified by what this meant she would take a letter written by him and still in shock prepare to leave the city to return to William. While this was happening it was Decius Dalmatia that returned to Castle Dalmatia with the orders that he believed had come from James Lovie II. but were in fact false orders given by Tristan Lovie.

Stormwind Negotiations
Sansa Starke Betrothed.jpg
If he turns out to be a monster Robb do not fret. We have our out. I will not force your sister to marry any monster. I promise you this.
Eddard Starke

Following the departure of Leven Martell from Stormwind travelling to Forks in order to meet with William it would be the Lannisters that called a meeting with the Starke's. Meeting together at the the Keep of Stormwind the group would discuss moving forward as the Starke's were very clearly completely behind William Lovie III. but the Lannisters would quickly point out that in order to move forward and join this alliance they would need more. Discussions would begin when Tywin requested that Sansa Starke be betrothed to Joffrey Lannister of which was rejected initially but was eventually agreed to once assurances were made that if the relationship was not acceptable to both parties upon meeting then new arrangements would be made instead. With marriage ties to bind them there were deals made on trading and control of the Rhunian region of which more regulated what was quite a chaotic region, and thus the Lannisters would agree to join with the Starke's in their support of William. With the Lannisters now joining the forces of William it was the spies for James at the negotiations that would send word ahead of what had transpired in Stormwind. This word was taken by Canius Opimius westward, and while Canius himself would travel all the way to Lucerne to alert James it was Canius that also stopped at Castle Dalmatia to alert Landsgrave Modius Dalmatia of what was transpiring.

Final Resistance

Main Article : Ambush on the Greenhave

Leven Martell Cover5.png
You had a different feeling about the land after you heard the words of the honorable Eddard Starke. This was a man who you just knew from hearing him that he spilled out honor, and yet he was telling his horrible tales you just didn`t want to be true.
Leven Martell

With the loyalty of House Starke assured and Eddard promising to do his best for the rest of eastern Lucerne Leven would return to Lannistane and back to the boats which would take her directly to Forks. While this was happening the James loyalist Modius Dalmatia would be preparing an ambush in order to capture Leven and hold her as a means to bring William to the table. While the main ambush was being prepared at Castle Dalmatia it was Franzal Nighting and a group of Nighting soldiers present at Castle Dalmatia that would take a boat and attempt to make their own move against Leven. Franzal was hopeful that if he gained Leven before House Dalmatia then James Lovie II. would begin to favor House Nighting again. Before leaving for this ambush it was Franzal that left a letter for Rachel in Castle Dalmatia where she was rushing towards in order to find Franzal before anything could happen. The Nighting ship would use the cover of fog to join the small fleet of Leven Martell and getting inside their ranks it was Franzal and his force that would use rafts to get right beside the boat of Leven Martell and then used ropes to get on to the boat. Once on the boat they would spread out throughout the top deck where they would quickly kill the captain and two guards on the main deck in preparation for their move against Leven. Leven and Dorea were unable to sleep due to the snoring of Obella and thus decided to go to the main deck and sit for a time. Leaving their sleeping sister Obella they went to the top deck, and while at first, they brought nothing with them it was Leven that watched Dorea grab her dagger that led Leven to also grabbing her sword.

I hope this letter finds you in good health Rachel. I want you to know I will always be thankful to you for raising me. You were the mother I was lucky enough to have, and for that I will always have nothing but love for you in my heart.
Franzal Nighting

When they reached the top deck, it was completely pitch black out, and the only light was the single flame burning beside captains’ wheel. Leven would approach the captain and find him with a knife in his neck and bleeding out all over the deck. Reaching for her sword she barely got it out before a dagger narrowly missed her head and slammed into the pole behind her. Sliding to the deck she was forced to defend herself as a red masked man charged at her. Out of the corner of her eye she saw Dorea fighting against another man, and she could hear commotion as the rest of the boat clearly awoke from the fighting. Initially Losing her fight to the red masked man she would finally kill him after he tripped on one of the bodies strewn about the deck, and she would slice his head from his body before he fell into the river (The attacker would later turn out to be Franzal Nighting after Rachel Nighting revealed one of her cousins had been killed by Leven and this was the only instance that makes sense). The crew then broke through the locked door keeping them below and the other man would jump into the river to escape where two were killed by arrows fired at them but the remainder were able to swim back to their boat. Following this attack, the crew remained on heavy alert as they made their way westward and decided to stop at Castle Cerintha instead of Castle Dalmatia as they had originally planned due to Appius convinsing this was the best option. Appius for his part had become completely broken by what he had learned in Stormwind and now the assassination attempt made him even more confused over the truth, and thus while Leven stopped at Castle Cerintha it was Appius that took a ship and traveled to Castle Dalmatia.

Battle of Castle Cerintha

Main Article : Battle of Castle Cerintha

1. Appius is stopped during his attempt to reach Castle Dalmatia 2. Camped army of Modius Dalmatia prepares to sail towards Castle Cerintha 3. Army of Modius lands west of Castle Cerintha in preperation for the Battle 4. Arrival of the Dalmatia fleet who blockades the port of Castle Cerintha 5. Meeting of Castle Cerintha where the negotiations for the surrender are made.

We have to stop her because she found out the truth. Our loyalty to the king does not end. It doesn't matter what he has done.
Modius Dalmatia

Appius did not have to travel far before he ran into a blockade led by ships carrying the flag of his household. Approaching the ships he met with the captain of the fleet in Juventius Ovidus who told him that his father had camped on the shore and to speak with him of which Appius did and discovered what appeared to be thousands of troops all camped on the riverbank. Appius would meet go to his fathers tent where he found his father and all the Dalmatia vassals meeting in regards to what he quickly realized was an ambush on the fleet of Leven Martell. While Appius did not reveal that Leven was at Castle Cerintha it had already been revealed by one of the survivors from the Nighting failed attack, and thus the army was planning to move against Castle Cerintha while the fleet split up with most moving to Castle Cerintha to blockade the castle while the remainder split in half to block any attempt to relieve the castle from west, and east. While the vassals moved about to get ready to march, and sail it was Appius that met with his father telling him that Leven was a good person who was loyal to the prince. To his shock it was Modius that told his son he already knew that James had ordered the destruction of Tree Hill, and that was the reason they had to stop Leven, and then use her capture as leverage. Shocked by what he had discovered it was Appius that took command of several ships in the Dalmatia fleet and joined Juventius, and Pisentius in moving to Castle Cerintha to blockade the castle.

This isn't personal Lady Martell. I just serve a different king.
Modius Dalmatia

Realizing that the words of his father had been lies, and they were following a mad king it would be Appius Dalmatia that would conspire with the loyalist Pisentius Larcius to gain control of the Dalmatia forces and stop his father from getting them all killed. While the fleet was blockading Castle Cerintha it was Appius and Pisentius that took a group of soldiers and made there way to the flag ship of the Dalmatia ships in the form of The Medee and would meet with captain Juventius Ovidus. Juventius was an honorable man, and had lost a brother at Tree Hill and thus when he was told what had actually transpired there he would join with Appius and with Juventius on their side they gained the fleet. Juventius would have several captains he wasn't sure of the loyalty of removed to their quarters, and with this control now in place it was Appius that attempted to end the battle before it could start. While the army of his father was preparing the siege it was Appius that took a raft and while carrying a white flag entered the port of Castle Cerintha. Quickly taken by the Cerintha forces he was brought to the main hall where Leven, and the Cerintha forces were planning for the coming battle. Meeting with them he revealed the changed loyalty of the fleet, and that if Leven would call a parlay with the Dalmatia forces he believed he could convince the other leaders of his fathers army to stand down.

I would be within my rights to have you executed for what you have done. What you nearly did. I will instead allow you to return to your home under the watch of the new Lord of Dalmatia. You are not to leave your families lands until this is all over with. I trust you will watch over him Appius.
Leven Martell

Taking the advise of Appius its Leven that meets one last time with the forces of Modius and sending a messenger to the Modius forces she lies and says the meeting is where she will surrender to Modius. Leaving through the gate of Castle Cerintha with just Lord Atrius Cerintha, Dorea, and Titus Numonis she watches as Appius hides his face under a hood as he carries a white flag alongside the group as they walk towards the riders that have come from the Modius forces. Reaching the Modius group she can tell that he has brought many of his vassals to watch her surrender and realizes that Appius was right about what his reaction would be to her surrendering. The two barely speak before Appius removes his hood and calls out his fathers lies in front of the Dalmatia vassals, and the two argue for a few minutes before Clodius Cervidus the most powerful of the Dalmatia vassals voices his support of Appius. Realizing that he has lost its Modius that agrees to stand down and face the consequences of what he views as his devotion to his oaths. Following a discussion between Leven and Appius it is agreed that Modius would be placed under house arrest at Castle Dalmatia and remain there until William had made a decision on him. Appius would be given lordship of House Dalmatia by his father in front of their most prominent vassals and then while Appius commanded the vassals to prepare their forces to return home he had Juventius Ovidus who had just arrived at the meeting to take Modius to the Medee and personally take him back to Castle Dalmatia.

Arriving in Castle Dalmatia
It was actually the first person I have ever killed. He moved quicker then anyone I had ever fought before. He tripped on a body and as he got he stumbled on the blood and I took his head from his body. His red mask was the only thing that didn't fall in the water.
Leven Martell
Arriving in Castle Dalmatia
You killed my cousin Leven. He was seventeen and just wanted to help his family. He didn't deserve to die on that river.

Leven you need to look around you and see how beautiful all of this is. There are problems on this day, but your father goes to a better place now. He was my brother and I loved him more then nearly anyone, and I know in my heart that this is not the last time I shall see him. Know that once your time comes I believe we shall all be together again, and in that moment your father won't be burdened anymore by pain. He will know peace at last. He will know the world as he once did. Hold that close to you sweetheart.
Oberyn Martell to Leven Martell

Leven and Oberyn Martell were not especially close while she was young as he was constantly away, and when he did return home for his brief times she was in Lucerne at the Academy. Their relationship grew after his return for good during the days following the Journey, and during this time as her father got sicker and sicker, she came to look at her uncle as a father of sorts. Oberyn would knight her for her valor during the Journey, and together he joined her in swearing his oaths to the King of Lucerne as he was the new Grand Lord of House Martell as his brother Doran had secretly stepped down with only a select few knowing how close to death Doran truly was. Oberyn worked alongside Leven Martell to have his bastard daughters turned into a bastardy Knightly Order and this was the final element to the true growth of their relationship. Oberyn Martell would be convinsed by Leven to journey again and this led to Oberyn travelling to Bolten where he led the Martell forces into the attack on Karhold.
