Rupert Clegane is the son of Wilhelm and Paullina Clegane making him a member of and the long time lord and patriarch of House Clegane. Marnia Clegane would be married to Rupert Clegane only a few short years before his departure for the War in France and this left them quite in love before he left but his depression from France left their marriage damaged for years on end with the two finally reconciling a few years before his death.

Rupert Clegane was born the third child of his father Lord Hedrik Clegane II. and thus at the time of his birth he rose to first in the line of succession ending a dynastic crisis that was growing due to his fathers lack of male heir. As Patriarch of the family he has taken the approach of moving his House closer in their support to the ruling Lord of Forks in House Swan. He has followed in his families footprints and has been steadily increases the importance of Lole throughout his reign, and he can be most remembered for the massive rebuild he did of the southern castle which if it had not been completed Lole may have fallen during the Battle of Lole. This along with the smart economics moves that he has made have made him extremely popular amongst the population of Lole. All of this is tempered by his lack of military skill, but his delegation skills mean that he handed over military control to his children the moment they were old enough, and skilled enough to handle it. Rupert Clegane would respond to the call for aid from House Swan during the Forks Civil War and sent a significant force under his own leadership to the northern front where together with his son he held the front against Gleckheint throughout the conflict. Rupert Clegane would lead his forces, while giving true command to his sons during the Invasion of Westbridge, and shortly after the battle ended he became sick. His sickness broke to such an extent that despite Magi attempts to heal him he withered away, and by the time they had returned to Lole he was near death. He would die in his sleep leaving behind his family to mourn the loss of a man that wasn't truly great at anything he did but loved his family and did the best he possibly could.

Main Article : Second Lucernian Purge

The Second Lucernian Purge
This was a declaration of war against all of us. Today he came for me in Forks. Do not question that tomorrow he comes for you in Tree Hill. The day after he comes for Hillsbrad. This does not end until we stand together and let him know that enough is enough.

Find out who launched the attack. Find out who helped them. Find out anyone who knew about it. Find them all and kill them.
Kieth Schwartz

The Second Lucernian Purge would begin following the Failure of the Pendant of Cleansing as a damaged James Lovie II. and Vhloraz struggled with the new reality of their situation it was the Circle of Magi that went about attempting to root out the conspirators of the Griffon Roost assassination attempt.

Battle of Arennis Hold

Arrival of Matilda Lovie
I just wanted to see you Marius.
Matilda Lovie

As the siege continued it was Matilda Lovie that would arrive at the western entrance to Arennis Hold and arriving at the camp of her husband Marius Scott the two reunited, spending the night together. In the morning it was Matilda that would sneak out of the tent and with her two men at arms she would go to Arennis Hold where revealing who she was she was allowed inside the walls by Lord Maelevor Arennis. Inside the walls she was treated very well as Maelevor a Red Dragon and thus a loyalist to her father and using this loyalty she was able to convince him to speak to Marius Scott who was given the guests right and allowed to stay in a spire of Arennis Hold in preparation for this meeting.

Assassination Attempt

Matilda Lovie Cover Amazing2.png

I held her hand as she died. She was coughing up blood from the three arrows that your men hit her with. I held her hand as she died. You did that. You have to live with that once I'm gone.
Marius Scott

Marius would be targeted for assassination by Theoderic Weitlest of whom was obsessed with Matilda Lovie and had arrived at the Battle of Arennis Hold with the relief army. As the relief army settled in the northwestern area of the siege it was Theoderic that prepared his plan to kill Marius. Theoderic was told that Marius was meeting with Lord Maelevor Arennis, and then would be staying the night as Maelevor’s guest in the second spire of the Hold. Taking a group of his men they used ladders to get onto the northern wall during the night, and then waited inside the northern tower for morning knocking out the guard on duty at that tower who was not expecting an attack from the friendly northern side of the hold.

Escape of Marius

Following the attack by Theoderic on the spire it was the men of House Arennis that quickly retook control of the tower, and northern wall, but by this point the men of Theoderic had fled the wall and left behind the sigil of House Scott to blame Marius for the attack. Finding the sigil, it was Visenarr that arrived at the spire intent on arresting Marius, but discovered a dying Matilda, and a Marius severely injured by an arrow to shoulder. Marius would be allowed to escape Arennis Hold by Visenarr Arennis, with a horse through the northern gate, but he was not able to get to his force south of hold, or to the Swans east of the wall due to the lockdown on the hold, and so instead planned to travel north attempting to reach Kissenburg. Marius was able to purchase a horse from village of Arennisit north of Arennis Hold and thus traveled by horse to Kissenburg where he hoped to seek the protection of his mothers family in House Kissling while he attempted to return to areas more loyal to his grandfather.

Captured

While at Kissenburg he would be betrayed by his uncle Ernest Kissling of whom was the Edelherr and thus kept Marius's arrival a secret from Landsgrave Brandon Kissling. Using men loyal to him it was Ernest that held Marius prison outside Kissenburg for several days treating him well while he waited for forces loyal to the Circle to arrive. Willibald Guntbold would arrive and took custody of Marius taking him northward to Castle Kornfield where he was held until the arrival of Mildred Gleckourd who took him by boat to Gleckheint.

My father cannot stop talking about you my king. Once I was the apple of his eye but now...now all he can say is how much he loves his king.
Hedrik Clegane III.

With the region relativly safe now, Rupert watched as the trade that had suffered returned, and he also became home to a growing number of foreign representatives that didn't want to stay in Forks while they represented their nations, and towns. This growth was facilitated by another massive construction project on the part of Rupert in the form of increasing the port space in the town by nearly twice as much as what it was. This did meant that Lole became more of a hub then a relay station as it was, and this caused a bit of problems with the port houses in Forks.
