|Title||Heir to House Labeouf|
Shia Labeouf is the middle child of Harry, and Nadine Labeouf and as such a member of House Labeouf. Shia has two siblings in the form of Luke, and Ellie Labeaouf with whome Luke is a thane of Westbridge and a very powerful warrior in House Labeouf, while his sister Ellie is married to James Hartrian and is Shia's best friend in the entire world. Shia is involved in a relationship with Meghanna who he comes to understand at the end of the Rise of Lucerne is a vampire, and thus the future of these two who were for the majority of the second book deeply in love is in question.
During his youth Shia Labeouf was defined by the fact that he was very close with his family. Shia was confused during this time by his families continued support of the ruling House Malfoy, as he watched as they commited acts of violence on their people and allowed the city to decline. Despite all of this and his continued efforts their loyalty to Westbridge was continueing even though it has become clear that House Malfoy is very bad for the city. Shia himself was very mistrustful of House Malfoy, and he has a personal rivalry with Gregory Malfoy , over Greg's mistreatment of the population. Recently Shia Labeouf had become increasingly close to Meghanna who he knows as Megan Fox, and he is unconditionally in love with her. This begin as infatuation but their love was something he couldn't control, and thus he desired to be closer and closer to the girl that seemed unwilling to meet or be around anyone other then him. It was during this time that his rivalry with Gregory Malfoy would reach a different level as he would intervene as Gregory was brutally beating a women in the street, and in return he was attacked by several of Gregories cronies, and as he was beaten the beating was interupted by Meghanna of whom knocked one of the men through a nearbye wall, and then proceeded to unleash her sword and threaten everyone around. Shia at this point go to his feet, and in front of the now hundreds of people would engage in a duel with Gregory Malfoy of whom was also a skilled fighter. The two would fight for some time until finally Shia defeated him and prepared to kill him until he was pulled away by his brother Luke who understood the consequences if he killed Gregory. Following this he grew closer to Meghanna and alongside her he begin to become involved in the Westbridge underground where he would work openly towards the rebellion growing in Westbridge against the forces of House Malfoy. As this continued he was shocked when the city of Westbridge was attacked and sacked by the forces of Lucerne, and during this he was protected by both the troops of Lucerne, and Meghanna of whom showed herself to be a Vampire thus shocking Shia. With the Kingdom of Lucerne in control of Lucerne he became a very significant player in the town, and he would grow only more powerful as the days went on. All of this was vastly overshadowed by the fact that he wasn't able to see Meghanna for months as her status as a Vampire meant that she was kept away from the city, under the orders of the ruling elite in the city. Distraught at not seeing Meghanna he would travel westward and into the forests of Weerhousen where he was captured by rebels near the border. The moment he was captured by the rebels his fate was felt by Meghanna of whom would travel towards the site in an effort to save him from the fate that awaited him.
- "I was born with a silent love for the people of the land. I knew that they deserved better then the sad world the Malfoy's had brought them too, and that made me sure that something needed to change."
- -Shia Labeouf
Shia Labeouf was born on the island of Jalna inside Westbridge, and he is the middle child of Harry, and Nadine Labeouf. As a young man he worked with his older brother Luke Labeouf in increasing his abilities in politics as this was the avenue that the House was down. Shia Labeouf gained noteriety when he started an organization that gathered food, and other goods from the wealthy and then redistributed this to the poor and needy. This organization was something that brought him into the forefront of House Labeouf and it led his older brother Luke to give up his inheritance as he felt that Shia was better suited to eventually leading House Labeouf. During his youth Shia Labeouf was defined by the fact that he was very close with his family. Shia was confused during this time by his families continued support of the ruling House Malfoy, as he watched as they commited acts of violence on their people and allowed the city to decline. Despite all of this and his continued efforts their loyalty to Westbridge was continueing even though it has become clear that House Malfoy is very bad for the city. Shia himself was very mistrustful of House Malfoy, and he has a personal rivalry with Gregory Malfoy, over Greg's mistreatment of the population.
- "Gregory wasn't so much a flawed individual as he was the most evil vindictive waste of life I'd ever seen. It was his failings that made me sure about the fact that his house, and in that way his entire way of life had to leave."
- -Shia Labeouf
When Shia Labeof was 15 he first met Gregory Malfoy, and in this first meeting Gregory was in the process of beating up a younger boy, when Shia stepped in and stopped him. Gregory became enraged that someone had dared resist him, and so the two engaged in a fist fight in which to the embaressment of Greg, he was though rally beaten up by Shia.

On the fourth night she is returning to the top of the building that gives her a good vantage when she is pushed off the side of the tower by Jafrey Hemsworth of which when she hits the water she finds herself within the Veil again and this time she is stuck in mud unable to escape and waits there for hours until finally Jafrey moves to the edge of the mud and begins to talk to her.

| William Meets a Vampire |
Understanding what you are in your soul with be something that is of great interest to me. I do not judge anyone based on anything more then who they are from the moment I meet them. Prove yourself a loyal member of the Kingdom of Lucerne, and trust me when I tell you that I will keep your secret until such time that it need not be a secret anymore. I have protected far worse things then you.
The Vampire and the Dragon
Meghanna had left the city of Lucerne to return to Weerhousen briefly to lie to Queen Angelica Neferata about what she had done in the city, and it was while she was half way to Weerhousen when she would feel a terrible fear within her as the Lucernians would at this point Invade the city of Westbridge. Returning to the city at the fastest possible speed she infiltrated the entire city and reached Shia only to find him safe and being uplifted by the Lucernians, and thus she watched him safely from the tops of the buildings, and she remained watching him for many days before she was finally sure that he was truly safe among these new people. She contemplated attempting to see him, as she felt an obsessive pull to be near him, but she knew there was no way she could explain how she had gotten into the city without unleashing the knowledge of what she was to him. As she tried to get back out of the city she was captured by the forces of House Martell who were about to kill her when she was saved by Shia Labeouf who had sensed that she was nearby. When Shia saw Meghanna surrounded by the men of House Martell, and Wilheim Martell preparing to kill her - because he knew her to be a vampire due to her eyes - Shia broke into a sprint and stood in front of Wilheim who upon seeing the young man stopped his sword. With Shia now in danger the situation was broken up by Lucas Scott who while he was nearby knew that William had large plans for Shia and thus he couldn't allow him to fall and because of this he grabbed a hold of Meghanna and bid Shia to follow him to the tent of the king. As they walked Shia held Meghanna's hand and attempted to make her feel better, but she understood for the first moment that she was about to lose the shield that had protected her from being seen for what she was, and without her shield she was sure that Shia would abandon her
William though was forced to deal with an incident as the forces of House Martell under Wilheim Martell had captured a women of whom did not appear to be completely human in the form of Meghanna, and despite attempts to get her to speak she refused begging to see Shia Labouef of whom she told them she needed to see.
With the Kingdom of Lucerne in control of Lucerne he became a very significant player in the town, and he would grow only more powerful as the days went on. All of this was vastly overshadowed by the fact that he wasn't able to see Meghanna for months as her status as a Vampire meant that she was kept away from the city, under the orders of the ruling elite in the city.
- "I couldn't move on without her. I couldn't think anymore let alone sleep. I found myself constantly hating myself for loving something so clearly beyond the realm of reality, but that didn't change what I felt."
- -Shia Labeouf
Distraught at not seeing Meghanna he would travel westward and into the forests of Weerhousen where he was captured by rebels near the border. The moment he was captured by the rebels his fate was felt by Meghanna of whom would travel towards the site in an effort to save him from the fate that awaited him. As she made the long journey as quickly as she could it was Shia that was in the hands of the rebels, and while captured by them he found himself overhearing them as they were speaking Lahmian and while they thought he would never know that language he knew Persian and from that he was able to understand much of the conversation. He discovered these men were resisting the rule of the Vampire court in Weerhousen, and were the soldiers of Strigi of which he came to understand was the most sane of the vampire bloodlines. Realizing these were good men he revealed himself to be the
Vampires in Westbridge
With the relationship between Meghanna, and Shia Labouef continueing despite his knowledge about what she was it was simply a matter of time until others came to know the truth. This would happen when a servent overheard accidently struck her with a knife when she was cutting food, and the wound healed faster then it should have. The servent would alert Harry Labouef of whom would barge into the room with many armed men where Meghanna leapt to protect Shia and was nearly killed during the exchange but Shia was able to stop his father from killing her. Harry would confine her to a cell, and despite Shia's constant attempts to have her released, his father feared greatly for Shia's life and refused everytime no matter what Shia suggested. The confinement lasted for weeks, and as this went by Shia would visit her in the prison, but watched constantly by his brother Luke Labouef he was unable to feed her his blood, and her pain grew increasingly bad as time went onl. Meghanna would begin to starve, and as she started to die her progeny's would sence her death knell, and arrived in Westbridge, where they broke into the prisoner, and were nearly able to get her released at the cost of killing several gaurds, but Meghanna resisted this saying the gaurds hadn't done anything and didn't deserve death. Harry watched alongside his personal gaurds as this happened and changed his opinion of her nearly completely in one single moment.
Hearign from the gaurds what was happening Shia broke though the gaurds placed on him to keep him away and barged through his brother and hugged Meghanna deeply. Tormund Fox would come forward with a vial of blood smuggled with him in case they were not able to find live bodies, and she was fed while Shia held her in his arms. Realizing watching his son that his heir was deeply in love with this girl, Harry Labouef would stop fighting her, and while sending away her progenies Meghanna was brought back to strength using the blood of animals, and as she healed she grew on Harry of whom saw how much she loved his son. Meghanna, Shia, and Harry would come to an arrangement where Meghanna would be sworn into House Labouef and act as a part of the Honor Gaurd, and would be allowed to stay within the city as long as they did not feed on a single drop of human blood, and despite the resistence of Tormund Fox they would all agree to this becoming known as the Red Foxes of Westbridge.
Council of Heathfall
| Council of Heathfall |
You can stand alone, and join an evil people corrupted by darkness or...or you can join with us. I don't come here to threaten you. I don't come here to make demands. I come here because my King is tired of these monsters running around doing whatever they want. Today you can make a decision to stop them. Stop them here.
Following the Invasion of Westbridge and the collapse of the House Malfoy control base north of Westbridge the power brokers of southern Thedas would begin to realign themselves with an eye for Lucerne and away from Tevinter. With House Arryn of Heathfall as the leadership caste of Heathfall they had been members of the Kingdom of Lucerne in everything but name, but preceding the Invasion of Westbridge Heathfall was finally made a member and took a heavy role within the Invasion of Westbridge. Dowenshire would become the target of Lucerne due to its power and position and to secure it Edmure Tully a R'hllor Knight, and Edmund Blackwood would travel to Dowenshire in order to try and convince the Theocracy there to join Lucerne. Edmure Tully, and Edmund Blackwood would arrive in the town of Dowenshire with a contingent of Riverland lords including a healthy mix of R'hllor knights, and Dragon Knights, and were treated well by the Dowenshire Theocracy due mainly to their mistreatment by the forces of the Deatheaters of whom had reacted violently to their defeat at Westbridge by massacring many villages on their way north into Tevinter. Using the hatred of the Dowenshire Theocracy of the Deatheaters to their advantage they were able to convince the Theocratic leadership of Dowenshire to support the Kingdom of Lucerne in return for their retaining their religious independence. Due to this Dowenshire, and Heathfall were already all but members of the Kingdom of Lucerne, while the Kingdom of Noveria, and Gnomer were powerful and had independent ideas but also wanted an alliance to assist in defending themselves against the encroachment of The Empire, or Tevinter. Noveria in particular stood right on the doorstep of the Empire of Tevinter and was already seeing a dramatic rise in the number of Tevinter troops amassing on the borders with them without any sign of diplomats coming with them.
Assassination in Hossberg
Main Article : Tevinter Assassinations in Hossberg
The city of Lydes, and its dependent Kingdom of Anderfells would also become intertwined after the Tevinter diplomat Cho-Ninimdor Narthriel arrived in the Kingdom of Dole's capital of Inrathous and met with the king of Anderfells son Anders Feron. The meeting would go well enough with Anders being open to improving relations with Tevinter but then collapsed completely following a conversation between Ninimdor and Marik Feron the eldest son of Prince Anders where in Ninimdor let slip the further desire of Tevinter to expand into Thedas and more specifically Lydes. Following this argument Diplomat Ninimdor returned to Tevinter and relayed the now broken relationship, but downplayed his role in this instead blaming Prince Anders for the break down. Following this High Archon Thomas Malfoy would send an elite force of Death Eaters to the Anderfells in order to ambush and kill the Anderfells leadership as well as the Grand Prince of Lydes who had traveled to Hossberg to meet with the King of Anderfells. Arriving in the Anderfells capital of Hossberg it was the Deatheaters who used the meetings of Lydes and Anderfells to ambush both parties and during this ambush they would kill Marik Feron, and his wife while also maiming the face of Anders Feron who survived only due to the arrival of Grand Prince Tylor Griggs and his elite Personal Guard instigating a skirmish in the palace. During this skirmish most of the Deatheaters were killed, while Tylor Griggs was injured quite badly and dozens of guards killed but Anders Feron survived the attempted killing. Following the interrogation of the surviving Deatheaters it was discovered to be a part of a larger plot and with all this evidence the border was closed with Tevinter and while war was not declared the two nations would be in a state of near war.
Anders Feron would thus arrive in Heathfall and without really anyone having to communicate to him about moving forward he gave the distinct impression to Dran Arryn that he and his family wanted and desired two things in the form of revenge for the murder of Marik Feron, and for the Lucernians to assist them in getting Viola Feron back from her holding in Tevinter. Dran Arryn would be the one that was finally able to bring everyone together when he was able to have everyone send representatives to Heathfall for what people came to call the Council of Heathfall. The meeting would take place in the large town of Heathfall only three months following the death of Marik Feron, and six months following the Coup of Tevinter, and the Lucernians would send the Labeouf's, Starke's as well as Saiden Scarlet and a party of his people, while the leaders of all the nations came to Heathfall outside of Lydes of which Tylor Griggs was still recuperating from the injury he had suffered during the Tevinter ambush on the Anderfells capital of Hossberg, and thus instead sent his son Bylor Griggs of whom would act as the Lord of Lydes during the meeting.The Gnomes of Gnomer were the second last group to arrive and led by their High King Gelbin Mekkatorque it would be Saiden Scarlet, and Robb Starke that would meet them at the gates of Heathfall and had a long talk with both the king and Silas Nonu. The Gnome King had brought Silas Nonu alongside Tinken Cogbonk, Fimbus Puddlefizz, and Ressa Beddlespark alongside some thirty Gnomish soldiers of whom would act as his guards of sorts but Tinken Cogbonk would accompany Silas Nonu to speak to Robb Starke, and Saiden Scarlet out of the ears of the guards of both groups. The four would discuss how the Gnomes would side with Lucerne during the council, but they also said that there assistance to the alliance would be minimal as they were fighting a war in their capital of which they had finally turned the tides on. The four would discuss the Gnomer invention of underwater boats of which could move men, and supplies without risk of being caught by defending ships, and this was something both Saiden, and Robb Starke needed to be brought to the attention of the King of Lucerne, and made Silas Nonu not discuss the offer with anyone else until the King had heard. Eventually there discussion ended and they were forced to attend the overall meeting with the rest of the group where they found Eddard Starke already beginning the discussion. The final group to arrive at Heathfall was the forces of the Kingdom of Noveria of whom arrived in heavy numbers and influence with the king himself coming to Heathfall accompanied by nearly five hundred men, two of his five council members, and the princess of Noveria also came in the form of Anna Orlais II. of whom he was ready to marry off to further strengthen any alliance he might make while in Heathfall. The Noverian forces were met by Shia Labeouf and his beloved Meghanna of whom took them towards the Heathfall Keep where the meetings would take place and during this time the Noverian King showed himself to also be very hateful towards the forces of Tevinter.
One of the main things discussed during the council was what there strategy was going to be to resisting the might of Tevinter if the conflict did come to a head. Noveria would be struck heavily as well as the Anderfells, and for that reason it was decided that Noveria would be heavily fortified against attack, and at the same time they were going to send a large troop of the Order of the Grey Dragon to rebuild several of the fortresses of northern Anderfells for the coming attacks. Lydes was prepared to finance much of the rebuild of northern Anderfells under the condition that Lucerne name them an Arch Duke within their kingdom and they became the head of the State that would be created north of Westbridge. This was heavily argued amongst the table, but eventually Dran Arryn was willing to accept this for a position of Grand Lord and lordship over his own province, as well as becoming the vassal of House Lovie over House Griggs. By this point the news was coming southward of how violent northern Tevinter was becoming due to the rising cult falling behind the Deatheaters, and this alone would scare all those assembled at the council to their shared cooperation in regards to defending against Tevinter.
