Base Born


Rurzh-Loghair Theirin the son of Rurzh-Lohthan, and Faw-Grehzel Theirin making him a member of House Theirin and from this position he is the current head of House Theirin and the King of the Kingdom of Taraban. Loghair, and Liazh would be married in the year 4530 and from that day forward she has been one of the greatest influences in Loghair's life unknowingly to him becoming his main reason for moving towards Mordor. Loghair has four children in the form of Anora, Teyrn, Moghair, and Cailan Theirin of which his daughter Anora is an extremely intelligent young women and the basic leader of the economy and internal affairs of Taraban, his son Teyrn is the heir to the Kingdom of Taraban and is extremely headstrong and prone to violence, his youngest son Cailan is a free spirit of whom has been leading a portion of the Taraban fleet for years and raiding the coasts of Westros during that time, while his final child Moghair would be born a stillborn and his death would be the final blow to the sanity of Loghair as his beloved wife died as well during the birth.

Loghair Theirin was born the heir to House Theirin and the Kingdom of Taraban, and he was sent immediatly to Umbar as a young boy by agents of Mordor of whom wanted to keep him away from his father Rurzh-Lohthan Theirin of whom had led the forces of Taraban in rebellion against Mordor and spent nearly all of his time removing the agents and influences of Mordor from Taraban something that was extremely threatening to the Empire of Mordor. During his time in Umbar he fell deeply in love with Ol-Selise of whom had been sent with him as one of the ladies in waiting who would also be trained in Umbar, and his obsession with Selise would grow to the point that it made him ignore all attempts around him to corupt him. This attempt to have him corrupted in Umbar failed when his guardian in Umbar turned out to be an agent of Gondor and betrayed the attempted coruption leading to Loghair returning to Taraban where he was betrothed to Liazh Terangaur of which House Terangaur was a staunch pro-Gondor family. Loghair would join his family in fighting in the Gondor Civil War where unlike the remainder of his family he left for Gondor itself leading a five hundred strong Taraban force into Gondor where he fought in eastern Gondor throughout the war. Following his return from Gondor his beloved Selise would die during childbirth and this emotionally devastated Loghair to the point that he was easy picking for his wife Liazh of whom by this point was a staunch believer in the One Eye of Sauron and this led to him joining the Mordor movement in Taraban as its figurehead and leader. Loghair would eventually discover that no matter what he did his father's culling of the Mordor influences in Taraban had led to the One Eye movement being severely weakened and thus he changed their plans and instead decided to simply remove his family of whom by this point his wife had convinced him had poisoned Selise while he had been away, and thus with his new plan in place he begin sneaking agents of Mordor into Taraban for what would become a very blood coup. Now king of Taraban he became very introverted as he feared for assassinations and secluded himself more and more into the capital while he left ruling the kingdom to his daughter Anora of whom was extremely brilliant. The leadership of Taraban would be faced with the arrival of Ramsey Bolten and discovered to their shock that Loghair left his keep and led the meeting. After the meetings they were commanded by Mordor, and Sauron himself to lead a force alongside the larger Mordor army that would be going, and that they would be responsible for the naval aspect of the campaign.

Early History

Marriage

Loghair, and Liazh would be married in the year 4530 and from that day forward she has been one of the greatest influences in Loghair's life unknowingly to him becoming his main reason for moving towards Mordor. Their marriage would start off on a rocky place as despite being betrothed for many years Loghair had fallen in love with Ol-Selise of whom was a low level aristocrat, and despite Liazh doing everything she could to make him forget her she found nothing would dislodge her husband from loving and being with Selise and coming to accept eachother's presence the two eventually became friends of sorts.

Gondor Civil War

The End of the Line

Main Article : Battle of Narvine Fields

The End of the Gondor Civil War
They will not sit idle after our victories in Cair Andros and Ethring. We need to move quickly if we are to end this conflict. We need to look at this map and force their hand in a single fight. Force them to attack where we want them to.
Gondor Civil War2
This was the moment where it shifted. I couldn't see it then, but looking back I know that was the moment they lost.
Aragorn Elessar II.

The War would finally come to an end when the forces of Mordor and Umbar would team up to attack the Gondorian Fortress of Narvine. The forces of Mordor were reeling from the miraculous defense of Cair Andros, and before this the utter defeat of the Umbar forces attempting to destroy House Mason at Ethring. The Mordor forces begin to regroup around Minus Morgal and prepared to move once again into Gondor this time they were led by the Witch King and their force was massive along the lines of the original armies attacking throughout the land. The Gondor scouts were especially well alert during the early movements and because of this the Gondorian army was able to arrive in Narvine a day before the Mordor, and Umbar armies did, and this turned the battle into more of a siege.

The Prelude
Tar-Vislan
Two victories are far better then two losses but let us be honest about the situation. They have to massive armies of which we have to deal with but the real problem is closing the gap of Minas Morgal. If it remains open they will just send more men through. We need to close that gap.
Aragorn Elessar II.

The fortress was the main backbone of the eastern Gondorian defences and for this reason it was especially well prepared for the attack that everyone knew was inevitable. Before the Battle had begun the fortress had its command handed over to the twin brothers Tar-Arannoa Ellesar, and Tar-Vislen Elessar of whom brought a large force of Tower gaurds of whome were not foreseen by the forces of Mordor as they moved within. The forces of Mordor were at first moving against Minus Ithil but they discovered the fortress was heavily defended by two of the Numenorian commanders in the form of Tur-Halbaard Elessar, and Edrion Elessar thus the forces of Mordor used a large Orc force to besiege Minus Ithil while they moved the total force southwards towards Narvine in a move that would cut off the main Gondor force in the south from the rest of Gondor. As the force from Mordor moved south the main thrust of Umbar moved northward towards the main Gondor Force at Ethring which forced the main force to remain in place. King Arathorn Elessar understood that the forces of Gondor were completely surrounded in the south but with the army in the north in tatters following the defence of Cair Andros, and the central army still stuck fighting against the army of Sarauman in Osgiliath and besieged in Minus Ithil he had no choice but to attempt to defeat the Umbar force once and for all.

The Siege Begins
Siege of Narvine

The Army of Mordor moved quickly against the forces at Narvine as they were determined to take the fortress and quickly trap the rest of the Gondor Army around Ethring where they would be picked apart and destroyed. Led by the Witch King the army of nearly three hundred thousand attacked the fortress nestled into the hills which had a defence army of little over sixty thousand and was weakened from nearly two years of fighting. The seige begin quickly with the forces of Mordor swarming at the walls in huge numbers which had little hope of defeating the defenders but each night this continued which made the defenders weaker and weaker. After three days of fighting the forces of Mordor had lost almost seventy five thousand to the defenders but the defenders were down some ten thousand dead while another fifteen thousand were wounded. While the defenders awaited the fourth day and the coming of their eventual fall the situation in Ethring changed dramatically.

Massacre at Barfurd
Castamir and Vastamir Bedroog

Along the Umbar front the forces of Gondor were opposed by the massive army of Umbar of which was situated in the large city of Barfurd. The Umbar army was very large but at the same time they were led by the brother of Castamir Bedroog in Vastamir Bedroog of whome was a skilled but inexperianced leader. Arathorn saw that his Kingdom was going to fall unless he changed things dramatically and thus he created a plan where a large force of Gondor Cavalary would move eastward around the border with Umbar through the mountain passes there and move to the east of the Umbar army unaware. The sentries along the Umbar border were massive as Castamir had drilled his brother to death that he needed to be careful about ambushes, but the mountain path was so inaccesable and far away from the front that there were very few sentries there and what few were there were of little skill and even less prepared. The Cavalry moved quickly and was able to destroy the few scouts in the mountain pass and arrived on the eastern swamps of Barfurd four days after they had left. With their arrival Arathorn moved the entire Gondor force southward and provoked the Umbar army into action by massacring the scouts located along the border and thus at the same time bliding the Umbar forces to their movement. Vastamir sent word to his brother who told him that he would move a relief force to Barfurd and that Vastamir would not move until he arrived. Vastamir was prepared to follow this but Arathorn begin using scouts to taunt the defenders and Vastamir suffered insults from his commanders which forced him to make the rash decision to move the Umbar army north in order to defeat Arathorn.

Massacre of Barfurd

The moment the Umbar army moved north Castamir got word and moved his force quicker to the location but he was a week away and had no real hope of arriving in time. Vastamir led the forces north and despite whispers from his commanders that they had little knowledge of what they were facing he continued north due to the fact that he was heavily influenced by several rash commanders within his retinue. As he moved north he was shadowed by the ten thousand cavalry of the Gondor force of whome moved in behind and to the eastern side of him in preperation for the coming Battle. As the two sides engaged in Battle the Gondorians did not make any attempt to be agressive and the Umbar forces assumed this was because they were so much more numerous and they doubled their attack. As the entire Umbar force was engaged the cavalry moved into the Battle and hit the unprepared Umbar forces in the rear and side. As Vastamir realized the mistake he made he charged forward in the hopes of defeating Arathorn before his forces were completely massacred. He would make his way to Arathorn who was heading for him and the two would duel and when the dust settled Vastamir lay dead along with the entire army of Umbar. Following this victory the forces of Gondor moved relatively undamaged northward towards the Battle of Narvine and the forces of Mordor were completely unaware of this movement.

The End of the Siege
Duel at Narvine
My came to me the night before the battle. He had a look of such confidence that when the words tumbled out of his mouth speaking of his fears I could barely recognize him as speaking them. My father had always carried himself with an almost arrogant confidence, so to see him speak with fear was a jarring experience.
Aragorn Elessar II.

The fourth day of the Siege of Narvine would come and as was the case everyday the forces of Mordor moved against the city but this time they were in trouble as the main Gondor force was watching from the hills nearbye and was awaiting this attack. During the enseuing siege the Gondor Army under Arathorn moved north towards the seige and hit the rear of the attacking force. Isilmo was in the skies overhead and was the first to see the attackers, and this was followed shortly after by the Witch King of whome both attempted to shift there forces but realized quickly that the army was far to invested in the siege to turn completely and they watched as a massive melee ensued between the Gondor forces and the now completely surrounded Mordor army of which started to turn into a massacre. As this happened the Witch King and Isilmo landed at the heart of the Gondor army and begin to fight at the center. There presence caused great fear and nearly routed the Gondorians until Arathorn and his son Aragorn arrived on the scene and engaged them in battle. During this ensueing conflict Arathron would be struck down along with his second in command in Malvo Openias and all hope seemed lost until Aragorn stepped forward and fought him. While they fought his uncle was killed by Isilmo but was then forced to pull back after Tar-Vislan defeated him and nearly killed his Wraith. With the Mordor force nearly completely massacred the Witch King looked around and realized that he was completely surrounded and thus pulled back leaving the field completely in Gondor's hands. With the defeat of this force the forces of Mordor no longer had the forces capable of winning the conflict and Sauron watching his army in near defeat ordered the general retreat from Gondor's lands of which the final force to leave was Sarauman of whome was harried by Gandalf their entire time leaving.

Taraban Civil War

Main Article : Taraban Civil War

The Coup of Taraban
I killed my entire family daughter. Only you and your brothers were left when my vengeance was done.
Faw-Liazh Theirin Wide
What I did wasn't personal. My faith drove me.
Faw-Liazh Theirin

Following his return from Gondor his beloved Ol-Selise Theirin would die during childbirth and this emotionally devestated Loghair to the point that he was easy picking for his wife Liazh of whom by this point was a staunch believer in the One Eye of Sauron and this led to him joining the Mordor movement in Taraban as its figurehead and leader. Loghair would eventually discover that no matter what he did his father's culling of the Mordor influences in Taraban had led to the One Eye movement being severely weakened and thus he changed their plans and instead decided to simply remove his family of whom by this point his wife had convinced him had poisoned Selise while he had been away, and thus with his new plan in place he begin sneaking agents of Mordor into Taraban for what would become a very blood coup.

Persuasion

Fuh-Anora Theirin
You were tricked my neice. Your mother was beloved by my father. Look to my journal. That journal dictates my attempt under the order of my father to find out what happened to your mother. Do you know what I discovered. It was Liazh. All of this has been Liazh.
Har-Lohthan Theirin II.

While it was Rurzh-Loghair Theirin that had first suffered the manipulation of Liazh Theirin it would be Selise's daughter that would became the most important target, as Anora would alongside her father remain devastated by the death of her mother and in this depression she also became the target of Faw-Liazh Theirin of whom would come to treat Anora as a daughter for the first time. Using Anora's sadness she became the influence of the extremely dangerous Anora who was then tricked by her step mother into believing the death of her mother was the action of the royal family and she would support her father in his coup against their own family. During this time it was the Gondorian loyalists that were also attempting to discover who had murdered the dire hard Gondor loyalist in Selise, and in this action they would make a major mistake when they trusted Cailin Theirin. Rur-Cailin Theirin would take part in the Coup of Taraban when he was trusted by his half brother Deleyr and told important information about the movements of the loyalist forces, and despite loving his brother he betrayed him turning over this information to his mother leading to the massive speeding up of the Taraban Coup.

Your brother here is a part of the Gondor assasins that murdered your mother. Do you understand what that means? Your brother had betrayed you.
Faw-Liazh Theirin

As the coup reached the point where it was going to be launched certain elements within the family begin to catch on that something was afoot and most notable of these people was Rur-Deleyr Theirin of whom overheard his mother talking about the coming coup, and then made the mistake in confiding in Fuh-Anora Theirin about what he heard. Anora was so much in the throws of vengeance, and also knew about the coup so would lie to her brother and told him that she would tell their grandfather the king, but instead took this information and gave it over to Liazh of whom manipulated Anora into believing that Deleyr was a major conspirator in the Gondorian loyalist movement. Coming to believe this Anora would be ordered to kill Deleyrn but going to kill him she would be unable to kill the closest remaining member of her family and instead had her men drug him and then put him into the dungeon of Armenelos but told Liazh that he was dead.

Bloody Coup

Lohthan Theirin would be murdered by his son Lohgain of whom had been manipulated into believing that Lohthan had murdered his mistress, and despite attempting to talk his son down during their confrontation the emotionally shattered Lohgain would not listen to reason and killed Lohthan as well as much of House Theirin.

The Truth

During the coup of Taraban Anora would be sent with a force of twenty men to the fortress of Dur-Armentol where she was to assassinate her uncle Lohthan Theirin II. and his family and upon arriving she would fatally wound him but he revealed before his death the truth of what was going on and believing his story she assisted her aunt Delissa in keeping her cousin alive of whom she would sneak from the massacre and hide. Also realizing at this time that she had allowed her step mothers manipulation to allow her to betray her brother Deleyrn her hatred brimmed and she immediately begin plotting to also assist in getting Deleyrn out of his imprisonment.

Deal with the Devil

Euron Greyjoy2

Euron Greyjoy long desired the throne of the Iron Islands and would make the reaving and destruction of Westros his greatest legacy.

They thought they had won. They believed in their heart that trouble had just disapeared as their victory was all but assured. I would burn my enemies at the gates by whatever means neccessary. I didn`t work all this time just to fall at the moment before I had all the power I needed.
Ramsey Bolten

As the armies of Bolten were crushed on the field, and they fell back castle by castle it wasn`t until the Lannisters captured the castle of Hayford which opened the way onto the Dreadfort Peninsula that they begin to actually fear destruction. Fearing this Ramsey would go to his father and tell him he was leaving to get reinforcements, and when asked from whom he told his father he would be travelling to the Iron Islands. As he left he discussed with his Bastards that he actually planned to travel to the Iron Islands and make an agreement with them that they would not interfere in his actual plans of getting reinforcements from Mordor. Travelling to the Iron Islands his ship would be boarded by Euron Greyjoy of whom had silently reentered the Iron Islands without the knowledge of his family. Euron and Ramsey would come to an agreement where in the Iron Islands was able to reave up and down the lands outside of Dreadfort, and for this they would not only enable Mordor to enter the lands but would also join in the assault. Euron promised that by the time Ramsey returned if he did return from Mordor that Euron would be the new Iron King of the Iron Islands. Departing on their ship they travlled north east before then travelling directly south where they eventually arrived in the Kingdom of Taraban where they would meet with the leadership there in order to arrange an alliance with Mordor.

King Varance Taraban
You walked into Taraban and while you could see the humans it just had an aura of madness to the land. Controlled by Mordor for generations I`m surprised any resemblance remained of their ancient traditions, but I saw the capital and was shocked at the civilization. These were not the monsters surrounded by demons we had always been told they were. How much of legends, and stories are lies like the lies we were told of the Taraban.
Mallador Locke

The King of Taraban met with them briefly before saying that he had been commanded by the Dark Lord himself to have the Bolten men prepared for the arrival of the Witch King of whom would discuss terms. Waiting for days they were barely allowed to leave the keep and watching from the windows they watched as the land during the night was haunted by the shreaking of monsters, and the shadows themselves appeared to move with the haunting of some dark spirits. When finally the Witch King arrived he was accompanied by three other Nazgul in the form of Mahud, The Dark Marshal, and the former king of Lucerne in John Lovie. Believing they would have all of their requests easily accepted Ramsey and the others were shocked when they were roundly rejected for assistence from Mordor as they demanded more consessions from Bolten then just a foothold in Westros. As talks deterioated Ramsey would become so enraged that he promised them the entirety of the land outside of Dreadfort and its peninsula in return for their assistence. With this off the Witch gave them assurances that John Lovie, Mahud, and The Dark Marshal would lead a large force from Mordor and land in the Dreadfort to begin the counter assault against Lucerne.

I wonder if he knew what he was giving away in that moment. The madness in his eyes told me he didn't care, but I still wonder. What little humanity existed in him once, would it have given him pause he fully understood the arrangement he was making. Or was he as lost as so many touched by evil become.
Anora Theirin

Preparing to leave Anora Theirin would meet with Mallador Locke, and using her extreme intelligence she was able to get a lot of information from him, and during the days preceding the arrival of the Witch King was able to more fully understand the situation through the lies Ramsey was telling them. Anora learned how lost the military situation was, and the fact that the Lucernians were going to be aware of the meeting with Mordor, and would dig their forces into the castles, and forts they had taken from the Boltens. Anora used this information withholding it from everyone including even her beloved brother Cailin of whom she planned to have stay behind and thus protect him from the death that would surely await anyone that went to the Dreadfort peninsula.

Return to Bolten

Return from Bolten
Returning I couldn`t but feel like we had just doomed ourself. I knew that Anora was lying to me, and that hurt me more then Ramsey's punches, or kicks ever did. She knew we would fail. She knew we would all die, and yet despite my love for her, she was prepared to let me die.
Mallador Locke

The Bolten`s would depart Taraban to their ships now accompanied by men of Taraban of whom returned under the command of Mordor to prepare for the eventual landing of Mordor which would take place some two months perhaps from that since they needed to mass an army and then deliver the forces as well. Amongst these men was Teyrn Theirin the heir to Taraban and a small group of elite Black Numenorians of whom were handpicked from the most wealthy and elite families in all of Taraban. As they returned they were met by Euron Greyjoy once more, and this time he wore the crown of the Iron Islands and told them that he was now the Iron Reaver of the Iron Islands, and that the Iron Islands would join with Bolten in pushing back the Lucernians. Ramsey Bolten now realizing that he had the affairs in order for his next series of plans, he returned himself in secret to Dreadfort during the night and prepared for his next plans.
