The Order of the Red Dragon is an order that is responsible for the standing army of Lucerne , but as well as this they maintain a large internal group that spends time improving and adapting the weapons, and armor that are used by the soilders of Lucerne . He has made the cooperation between the Order of the Steel Dragon and the Order of the Red Dragon his main concern for the first years of his operation, and this has worked to create a serious alliance between the two. Rodney Greymane would become centered in Lucerne, and would be there when he learned his uncle had passed away in Hillsbrad.

Rodney Greymane was born in the town of Hillsbrad and is the oldest child of Archibold, and Hieke Greymane.
As he grew up he spent a lot of time tinkering with his father's blacksmithing equipment and although at first this resulted in beatings his father eventually released that his son was very smart and was able to improve many of the tools in the business.
As he grew more knowledgable in blacksmithing he became sought after by many in the town for armor, and weapons of which he gained personal wealth through this, and instead of hoarding it or spending it on himself he put the money into blacksmithing and before his father knew what was happening Rodney, and his cousin Bravin Greymane had bought the other blacksmith in town and thereby monopolized the industry in Hillsbrad.

| 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 diologue going between our two houses. Finally I was to make it extremely clear that we would under no curcumstances assist William. Well atleast 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 argueing 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.
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.

Rodney Greymane and Bravin Greymane are very close, and this relationship started with their colabrative love of smithing and blacksmithing in general.
The two spent most of their youth together forever practising their techniques until eventually Archibold Greymane II. allowed them almost free reign in his shop. This trust wasnt't misplaced when the two worked together brilliantly and eventually became the only smiths in town.
