|Father||† Tavlian Lovie|
|Mother||† Mertia Lovie|
Damma Rossan or "Sophia Lovie" is the secretive assassin daughter of Tavlian, and Mertia making her a member of House Lovie through her father, and House Mertia through her mother. She was born the only child of her parents and they died before they could have more children making her now an only child. Damma Rossan is holding onto a great secret that if revealed could change the course of the Kingdom of Lucerne. She is in fact the daughter of Tavlian Lovie who was the secret and only child of William Lovie II. making her a member of the Lovie Family. Niklas Cullen would come to marry Sophia Lovie of whom he impressed during the Capture of Orleans, and this was more politiccal as neither had great emotional feelings for the other but both wanted to stop the hassle of being married off.
Sophia Lovie was born in France to her parents Tavlian Lovie, and Mertia Rossan of which their excistence was known to none in Lucerne as Tavlian Lovie was the sole remaining of the bloodline of William Lovie II. and any trace of his excistence or Sophia's for that matter would lead to John Lovie turning over every rock to kill them. Growing up she was made to be very aware of her heritage in the Lovie family, and because of this heritage, and the constant fear the family had that they would be hunted and killed by John Lovie made her training in war a primary concern. She actually attempted to enter Lucerene early in her life with her parents, and the plan was to make herself, and her parents known but she and her parents were forced to stray from the main roads and were ambushed by bandits of which the bandits were driven off by Elves but her parents lay dead and she was badly injured. She would be saved the fate of her parents by the intervention of some elves from Quel'Thalas of which one would stay with her for nearly a month while she healed becoming close to Dama. When she was healed she didn't wish to leave but she had to, and because of this she would travel to Forks finally fufilling the generations long journey of her bloodline, but when she arrived there she discovered the land in tatters following the destruction of Tree Hill, and the ruler Bill Lovie was believed by many to be insane. Entering Forks she found House Lovie was hated at the moment, and and was unable to enter Lucerne due to Bill setting a blockade of people trying to enter the city. Leaving her ancestoral homeland she would eventually join with Ravenholdt where she became a member of the brotherhood of assasins there, and despite her longing to return home she never quite saw it as a real oppurtunity. Under Ravenholdt she would hate what she was becoming and like many there she grew close to the charismatic Ezio Ederiz, and thus when he abandoned the order she followed alongside him, and this was especially her goal as she would finally be able to return to Lucerne, and she would scout out William Lovie III. and if he proved a capable or honest man she would reveal herself. She would become one of the founding Lord Assasins in the Order of the Violet Dragon, and continued to secretly moving closer and closer to revealing her true identity as a member of the Lovie Family. She begin to build a relatinship with William Lovie III. and as this grew she came to understand that he was a good person of whom would not foraske her, and she decided that before she revealed herself to him she would help him first by finding his father. She would make sure that she was at the forefront of the search for Bill Lovie, and she would hunt him for several years, and finally caught him during Ruins. Following this she returned to Lucerne, where her identity as a Lovie was finally revealed, and she would spend time with her family getting to know them all. Despite William wishing for her to leave the Violet Dragons she would decide to stay inside the Order and set herself the command of the expedition being sent to Dresdan in order to assist the Dragonoph worshippers in the land. Sophia would arrive in the capital of Dresdan and she introduced herself to the leadership of the Dragonoph Temple, but kept her true identiy as a Lucernian Violet Dragon from them or else she risked making it clear how deeply Lucerne was pushing into the conflict.
"My family was eeverything to me when I was younger. My father spoke to me about everything that was my family, and as time went on I longed for nothing more then to learn about this long lost royal family I was apart of."
Dama Rossan was born in France to her parents Tavlian Lovie, and Mertia Rossan. Growing up she was made to be very aware of her heritage in the Lovie family, and because of this heritage, and the constant fear the family had that they would be hunted and killed by John Lovie made her training in war a primary concern. As she learned more and more about the ways of war she demanded to know about the reason behind her constant training, and as time went on her father came to tell her mnore and more about the land that she was from in the Kingdom of Lucerne. Her father remebered little of the world he had left behind but he tried his best to teach his daughter everything that he knew that she would one day need to know. In the final days before she and her family left France her father gave her a book written by her grandfather William Lovie II. that told of the brief history of his life. The book obviously ended abrubtly due to William being killed while he was writing the book, and this along with the news in the book meant that she became obsessed with everything to do with her far off family.
Death of Tavlian and Mertia
"I learned early in my life that the world was a dark place. I learned early that everything I wanted was at the edge of a knife. My parents died broken. Alone. And hopeless searching for a truth in a world that didn't make any sence anymore."
When Dama Rossan reached the age of 16 the family decided it was time to return to Lucerne so they packed up all their things and headed towards Lucerne.
While travelling on the road between Athel Loren, and Quel'Thalas they were ambushed by bandits who were trolling the road. After Tavlian refused to lower himself by giving them money the bandits killed him, and Mertia. A fight broke out, and after Dama killed two of the three bandits the third man knocked her on the head. As the man prepared to rape her, he was shot through the head with an arrow. When Dama Rossan woke up she was lying in a tree, and her wounds were cleaned. She looked around, and saw an Elf sitting beside her bed.
The two came to know eachother over the next month while she recovered, and he showed her around the forests of Quel'Thalas. When she was healed she no longer wanted to leave, but the Elf who she could never get to reveal his name said that she had more important things to do yet, and promised her that they would see eachother again.
The two bid eachother goodbye and he took her to the edge of the border of Lucerne and then left. Dama entered Lucerne, and found her way to Forks. During this time Bill Lovie had just caused the First Battle of Tree Hill, so the whole city was in chaos.

Learning Hard Truths
Bill Lovie had by this point come to accept the death of his son Sean Lovie, but became in his isolation saddened by the fact that his bastard children with Esme Portmane were stuck in Lorderon far away from the growing Kingdom of Lucerne. With this in mind Bill would concoct a plan to infiiltrate the city of Lucerne, and the Cloud Tower specifically so that he could tell William the truth of his extended family. Late at night Bill Lovie used all of his power to summon himself as a spirit into Cloud Tower bypassing the light defences of the Blue Dragon members that were in Lucerne. In this form William Lovie was approached by Bill Lovie who told him that he had fathered other children with a women named Esme Portmane in Lorderon, and that he was sorry for doing this. Bill in this moment apologized to William for creating all the damage and evil that he had created in his time, but he wanted William to know that whatever he thought this meeting was it wasn't the end because Bill was now completely gone when it came to morals.
After this William would wake up his wife, and sister and as they talked his cousin Emma Bell came up as well telling them that Edward had arrived with several Order of the Blue Dragon members in order to see what had entered the Cloud Tower. Telling them what had happened there was shock around, and Edward reluctantly left not wanting to intrude as the Lovie's discussed the issue. They would all agree that the fault did not lay with these children as they were far away, and that they should make attempts to connect with them.
With the decision made William took his sister Alice, as well as his cousin Emma Bell to Lorderon where he planned to welcome his half siblings into the family as well as welcoming this women that had given birth to his father's children. The group would be joined by many others as the King of Lucerne travelling to a province so far from home would bring about all manner of problems. House Lovie would enlist nearly three thousand men from the personal levies to travel with the force and Oberyn Martell was placed in charge of the defence of Lucerne while they were away. The Shadow Council would obviously also join with the trip and Leven and William would ride together for much of the trip while Edward would ride with Jasper of whom was cold to him for most of the trip. They would be joined at the gates of Lucerne by Hedrik Clegane III. of whom had left immediatly when he had gotten the raven about the summoning from William, and thus would join them as well. When Alice asked William how he was going to se easily let these new people into the family he anwsered her with the following.
As they made the trip the group found themselves nervous about what kind of people they would find as their new family. Emma Bell wondered outloud many times whether this was some sort of trap that had been carefully planned by his father, but when this was discussed most discarded it due to the belief that of all the things he had done Bill had shown no ability under any cercumstances to actually harm William. Travelling along the road they took boats waiting for them in Lole from the growing fleet of the Order of the Red Dragon. The group is forced to travel through the Trident where Walder Frey demands double the rate of usual passage from the Lucernian fleet as payment for the insults that Robb Starke had supposedly layed on them. Wishing to meet with Walder aboard the ships they were told he was to old to do this but William could land and meet him inside the castle. This was rejected diplomatically and the group continued without further interuptions to Lorderon where they arrived in the port to much happiness.
Arriving in Lorderon they were met by Arch Lord Arthas Menathil, of whom many who had met him previously were confused by the shocking change in his appearance. Where before he was clean shaven and his eyes clear he now appeared to be ragged, and his eyes had changed in appearance to a near mennacing look. William would alert Jasper, and Leven to this change, and as this happened Edward saw that he was not consulted and was hurt deeply. The group doesn't notice as Edward is left behind and travels to a tavern, and they make their way to the palace where Arthas apologizes for his wife's absence but he cannot find her. Arthas has a fit that appears to be a siezure, and is taken away by several retainers, and following this they meet with Imlad, and Calia Menathil sister, and cousin to Arthas of whom would make arrangements to meet with Esme Portmane. Esme lived in the palace with her daughter and son while the remaining daughter lived in Arnor as a princess they were told. Esme arrived with Jamie, and Diane Portmane and the rest of the non Lovie members would leave the room as they discussed things. Esme immediatly knew what this was going to be about as she obviously knew who the father of her children were, and Diane also was aprised to the situation so it was only Jamie that they had to explain things to. Jamie would be clearly hurt, and William took him out of the room to talk as the girls all hugged and got to know eachother. Jamie and William would discuss many things, and eventually it came to his future and William said that he still had to prove himself but if he did he would be the eventual Lord of House Portmane and since it was being made into a cadet house of House Lovie his power would be heavy. Asking how this was possible when he was a bastard William made it very clear that he was no longer a bastard, and William's younger sibling and sole remaining brother would hug him so suddenly that Jasper nearly sliced him in two before realizing it was just a hug. The family would stay for several days before finally departing for the west where Diane returned with them while Jamie was left in command of House Portmane but would visit with Esme some time in the future. During those days they stayed William would also remain because he and Edward talked and he learned of the talk with Jaina and Medivh and he wanted Edward to look into this which he did with the help of Leven Martell.
Meeting with Medivh
With William travelling with his wife and family Leven had some time to herself, and found herself in her room trying to get some sleep when a knock at the door brought Edward into her presence again. She and Edward hadn't got along since he left for Hogwarts and his declining status within the Shadow Council had become clear to all, and this had led to him becoming more distant to the members and thus even more reason for Leven to not be happy with him. The two would talk and he would eventually convinse her for old times sake to help him with something as there was noone elce he trusted to come with him, and he wanted someone with him.
The two would exit the tunnels with a new fear of Arthas Menathil of whome they had clearly been told by this Medivh was someone of extreme danger. Edward believed him without question, but Leven saw this Medivh as a misguided Magi that was clinging to fear and dillusions in his old age. Both of them though would meet with William and discuss the realities of what they had heard.
Invasion of Westbridge
Main Article : Invasion of Westbridge
| Invasion of Westbridge |
The Fall of Westbridge would shake the entire continent to its core.
Before the actual invasion could be started, and two weeks before the forces of Lucerne begin marching northwards towards the land of House Malfoy, William Lovie got together with the Order of the Violet Dragon in order to change the way they were going to fight wars. William understood that the high walls, and formidable defenders meant that an attack would be met with heavy casualties and in order to continue expanding there was no way he could afford taking the casualites that would occur in a straight up siege. In order to bybass this he and the Order of the Violet dragon planned to use an incredibly high amount (the entire order) in order to assasinate key defenders that were not wanted after the siege, as well as to sabotage several sections of the defences as well. The plan called for also the infiltration of elements of the Order of the Green Dragon into the city for the purpose of cultivating relationships with those they might want in leadership positions after the battle.
As the armies of Lucerne massed in the valley the Order of the Violet Dragon moved northward in their entire strength and silently over the course of a few days infiltrated the city of Westbridge. The Order already had sympathizers in the city as House Malfoy was extremely unpopular in Westbridge and as such it wasn't hard to find people that were loyal. With roughly a month before the army of Lucerne was to arrive the forces of the Order of the Violet Dragon went about changing scheduals for the defenders so as to weaken sections of the wall. Those who it was planned to survive the conflict were basically given vacations on the day of the conflict so that they would not be caught up in the conflict. As well as this they begin setting up a rather sophisticated, and well equipped rebel army north of the city that was to be used by the Order of the Blue Dragon in order to facilitate their distraction north of the city. This force was headed by the realm of Heathfall which was led by the exile of Lucerne in the form of Dran Arryn. This force numbered in its thousands and would basically form the entirety of the northern assault alongside the Order of the Blue Dragon. Working alongsdie this army though was the army of Dowenshire of whom also was assisting thus bringing their numbers actually quite high.
Lucerne discovers Orleans
I saw the destruction of the world, and knew I had to stop it. There was nothing left to do but become bigger then everyone else. The Empire was never going to be the beacon the world needed it to be. Westros was on fire. The Bretonians had reached for the stars and been burned. And the old shadow of Numeron was fading far too quickly. It was left to us in Lucerne to change the fate of all those who wished to reject darkness. We were the last hope for a world who had long since given up on believing.
"My Lord we have intercepted a letter meant for Paris that may reveal the location of the former King." Tobias remained kneeled until I bid him to rise, while Doma was known for her lack of understanding of such graces, and remained in a sort of half bow and the other half some sort of lazy lean.
"Show it to me please." Doma stepped forward and handed me the letter of which wasn't sealed. "I assume you opened the seal, and their are little questions of its authenticity?" Tobias stepped forward bowing before me and then speaking.
"Yes we killed the three men carrying the letter and they all carried the badge of the false king."
"Good." I opened the letter from the rope that kept it together and begin reading.
I knew who Kieth Schwartz was and that made it all the more terrifying to hear that he still lived. It showed their stupidity that they simply stated they were in Orleans, and so stupid was this that I wondered immediatly whether this was a trap. "What information do we have on the Orleans area of France?"
"Ezio from our talking to several Elves of Quel'Thalas the area of Orleans was especially hit by the Orcs, and there is nothing of any kind of population of humans that remains in the area." Sometimes the way she spoke to me without using proper titles made me think she was the only one with any real bravery around me, but sometimes I wondered whether she was some kind of noble. It would make sence for her to have come from some kind of money, as she spoke far too good of the language to
"Have the Elves been to Orleans?" I knew the Elves travelled northward many times during the recent years as they attempted to both locate more humans to funnle into the area they were trying to grow into a buffer zone for themselves, and I hoped they might have gone as far north as Orleans during these trips.
"They say that they rescued several slaves of whom were being sent to Paris from the ruins of Orleans, and the hellishness of life in Orleans was very clear from their reports." Tobias stopped when Doma put a hand to his arm and we both waited for her to speak.
"My Lord." She paused for a moment and it gave me time to think about the fact that she had called me by my title. "I believe I am the perfect soldier to be sent to find out whether this is the location of Bill Lovie. Me and Tobias can take our Whelps and fly by Griffin to the area and scout it out without any problems."
"You are correct Doma you would be the perfect person, but I must ask why you want it so badly. In my years wanting something with passion can be either a very good thing, or a very bad thing."
"King William third of his name has given us so much, and I just want...I just need to do something for him. I spoke with him when we were in Westbridge, and the care with which he spoke to me was something I shall never forget. He knew I was a member of the Violet Dragons, and that didn't matter to him. He spoke to me as if I was the highest of ladies when he knew I wasn't, and for that he deserves someone to help him. Help him find the truth that he needs to know." I watched her as I thought. It was clear she was skilled enough for the task, but I worried about what her alterierve motives were, and whether these motives would be a hinderance or a boon to the mission. I watched her face though and saw a change. Something in her eyes when she looked at me changed. It was like watching the purpose behind one's entire life, and I knew which side of the ledger her involvement would sit.
"When do you depart Doma?"

- "I looked through the bars of my home now, and I should have felt better. I should have been saved by him. But instead he was my captor. He was the one that was the cause of all my pain."
- -Ashley Lerman
A few weeks after being captured and placed in the dungeons beneath the city. Her brother taunted her for weeks, and begin to bring other slaves from the dungeons and then he would torture and kill them. As this continued she came to speak with a cloaked man called Tobias of whom spoke to her with a kindness that she hadn't seen since her brother Logan had been with her. After talking with her she was released in secret by Tobias Henkel of whom was infiltrating Orleans on behalf of the Order of the Violet Dragon. Seeing young Ashley Lerman he overheard her conversations with her sadistic brother Faedra, and quickly released her when he had the chance. Released into the area around Orleans she wandered the plains west of the ruined city and finally collapsed of exhaustion.
- "It was a desperate life that we were living out here in the forest. If it wasn't the constant threat of the Orcs, it was the slave riders of Orleans that kept us from ever really knowing peace. But that kind of fear also breeds a hate in a person. I didn't dislike the Orcs. I wasn't mad at the slavers in Orleans. I hated them. I wanted them dead, and thats a powerful emotion for anyone to carry with them."
- -Luke Ellerdeen
When she did leave the bed she would find a people demorilized beyond belief by the death and destruction they had seen over the past many years, and she immediatly felt a sence of connection to that kind of sadness based on what happened to her family. When she awoke she was in a tent, and she was told by the man that woke her that she was in a small human emcapment of refugees from the war in France, and she would rest for many days before moving about again. During her time in the camp she came to better understand what was happening in France, as in Lucerne it was basically believed that everyone in France had either retreated to England or was dead. Luke made her aware of the fact that large numbers of humans still remained in hiding in the forests and other hiding places, but were heavily targeted by Orleans in the south, and Paris in the north of whom were basically slaver towns that the Orcs left alone because they suited their purposes. She would become close with Luke Ellerdeen of whom was somewhat the leader of the camp, and she would convinse him that they needed to help the thousands that were in the pens beneath orleans awaiting being sent to the slave markets in Paris. With the help of Luke Everdeen she was able to infiltrate Orleans again, where she found her brother after a lot of searching, and she tried to get him to leave with her, but he said that he had to help Hermione escape the city before she could leave.
- "I returned to Berne with all haste knowing what I knew. We had went to Orleans in the feint belief that Bill might have been there but never for a moment did we actually think we would have found him."
- -Tobias Henkel
Tobias Henkel after freeing Ashley Lerman from the prison would make his way to find Logan once again, and at the same time he would meet with Hermione. Telling them that he was returning to Berne where he would meet with his order in order to get reinforcements, and that while he was gone they should both remain vigiliant but to not do anything crazy. He would travel by griphon back to Berne alongside his apprentice of whom had been hiding out in a nearbye cave waiting for him. He sent a raven with a letter detailing what he had discovered to Lucerne where it would find Ezio of whom would seek clarification from William on how they would proceede. Returning to Berne he met briefly with Doma Rosson of whom told him that she was returning with him, and that they were to wait for more reinforcements before they struck. As they read the letter written by Ezio with William's orders in it in responce to his findings they realized that there main concern was the killing of Bill, and that anything and everything elce was secondary to his death. Returning to the Orleans area with Doma Rosson, the two could no know how much things had changed in the time they had been gone. When they returned they found that Ashley and Logan had disregarded their command, and were in fact marshaling forces from the nearbye camp and were planning to free the slaves beneath Orleans. Seeing oppurtunity in the distraction this might cause, Doma, and Tobias decided they would assist the siblings in their plans.
Ashley would support her brother, and together they would orchestrate a plan to break out the slaves from beneath the city. Ashley would be separated from her brother when on the day before the plan he went to help Hermione, and didn't return to her as he said that he would, and she would be forced to move forward with the plan anyway. They would receive more help when Tobias Henkel arrived back in the city with several more members of the Order of the Violet Dragon. Together with Tobias, and Dama Rossan they begin taking out many of the gaurds that would impede their plans, and worked side by side with Hermione of whom was going to get Myctisym while everyone was reacting to the chaos of the dungeons opened.
The Break Out
On the day of the escape everything would go according to plan, but as she entered one of the last dungeons she found her brother Faedra standing over a body that he was stabbing repeatedly. She would stop for a moment, and consider everything that Faedra had ever been, and in that moment she finally said goodbye to her brother and stabbed him through the back killing him. As she looked at the body Faedra had been stabbing she broke into hysterics when she discovered it was her brother Logan who lay dead. Tobias would come looking for her when she didn't arrive where she was supposed to and found her crying over the dead body of Logan. He was forced to carry her out of the room locking the door behind them so that she would finally leave the room, and with that she was forced to say goodbye to the brother who had given up basically everything for her. As they worked their way out of the dungeons they were knocked to the ground by a massive crash that shook the foundations all around them. After making sure the former slaves were escaping as was planned, Ashley followed Tobias as he made his way to the sound of the explosion, as she came to understand the Order of the Violet Dragon had other things in mind other then just saving slaves when Tobias told her they were there to kill Bill Lovie or at the very least destabilize his operations here.
Death of a King
Forced to fight there way through the fighting they finally arrived at the explosion where they found Dama Rossan fighting Bill Lovie, and saw the cause of the destruction as a massive hole had been blown in the side of the tower. Joining the fight the combined fighting of everyone against Bill finally broke him, and he collapsed to the ground defeated. In that moment he let everyone in the room know that Doma Rosson was actually Sophia Lovie the daughter of Tavlian Lovie and that he was sorry for everything he had ever done. As the life ebbed from his eyes Sophia moved towards him and held his hand as the dying former King of Lucerne finally died.
