Berne is a secretive fortress city built into the west side of the Lucerne Mountains. It has always been technically a member of the Kingdom Of Lucerne, but for a long period of time it was under the control of Sean Lovie's side of the rebelion and under the control of the True Sons of Lucerne. Following the capture of the city in the Fall of Berne it has become a Lord city in the Kingdom of Lucerne and is close to being connected by tunnel to Lucerne.

Berne is populated by Vandals due to the fact that when it was being populated this was mainly done by House Arryn of whome brought much of their servents, and all of their vassal houses when they left. Because of this it is the most homeogenuous of the Valley of Lucerne cities and for this reason a center of the Vandal culture in Lucerne. The population suffered some serious losses during the time it was under the control of the True Sons of Lucerne and from here their population was cut somewhat.

House Arryn is the Lord House of House Arryn, and from here they have established their major source of power. House Arryn has established much of their vassals, and Knightly houses in the fortress, and from here they have become increasingly powerful, and rich from the minerals of the city, and the power it has become. Byron Arryn is the Lord of House Arryn and because of this he is the lord of Berne but he is increasingly unpopular following the poor behaviour and leadership he showed during the occupation by the True Sons of Lucerne.

The city was constructed by Bill Lovie for being the basic last stand spot for the Kingdom of Lucerne, and its construction was placed in high regard due to Bill's growing belief that the Kingdom was going to be destroyed and they had to flee to the mountains. Bill Lovie would make a costly mistake when he sent the non-loyalist House Arryn to take control of Berne as their were other houses that owed him a lot more and had he of picked someone other then House Arryn he may have held the city far longer then he did. The city was a well run city for a time until Sean Lovie would arrive in Berne and take control of the city under the banner of the True Sons of Lucerne, and he would turn it into a nightmarish city where he commited violence on an unspeakable level. This changed when Andrew took control of it after the Lucerne Civil War, and since then it has expanded to be the center of the western trade with the Elves.

House Arryn

When Byron Arryn and the rest of his house arrived in Berne they all marvalled at the beauty of the town, and they understood quickly how much of a fortress the city was. House Arryn spent the first years of their reign in Berne continueing to increase the mining that went on in the town, as well as furthering the underway which was part of the command by Bill Lovie. It was while this was going on that the young prince Andrew Lovie would begin the Journey which would dramatically change the fate of House Arryn and Berne. House Arryn did not send any troops to assist House Lovie, and the young prince as they were meant to appear as if they no longer existed. But when Andrew Lovie returned to Lucerne victorious and proceeded to banish Sean, and Bill Lovie from the KIngdom House Arryn was about to be unable to hide themselves. While Bill Lovie fled westward to the fallen city of Orleans with what remained of his Circle of Magi, Sean Lovie retreated to Berne under orders from his father to use the city to launch a civil war against his brother. In this copasity the growing insanity of Sean entered Berne and while he was greeted by the people as the royalty he believed he was, Sean treated this with indignation and in fact through a gaurd off the walls of Berne in his march into the city.

Sean Lovie

With Sean's arrival in the city, Berne was no longer under the control of House Arryn but was now under the control of the newly created goverment of Sean Lovie self-entitled the True Sons of Lucerne. The rule of the True Sons of Lucerne was pure madness, and the peaceful and growth oreanted nature of House Arryn was replaced by a madness enduced chaotic nature which led to violence in the streets. Murderes all around. Sean Lovie is said to have exectuted a person a day towards the later days of his reign in Berne, and if murder was all he did then that was one thing but he in fact made a sport of trying new things and his raping, and sexual deviancy became out of control while in Berne.

Madness comes to Berne

Madness comes to Berne
This is the beginning of what I will make the entire world look like. First I'm going to make all of you see the truth. Then I'm going to kill my brother. Then I'm going to watch the world burn. Oh the fun I shall have.
True Sons of Lucerne
The True Sons were the anchor by which all of my violence, and malice shall be unleashed. I could give two shits about what the hell my brother does in Lucerne as long as I get to see the fear in peoples eyes before they fall.
Sean Lovie

As the leader of the True Sons of Lucerne Sean went about furthering the control of himself over the people of Berne. It didn't matter to him that they believed him King, and this alone would have made him untouchable, he just secretly wanted the violence. He cared nothing about the actual war, or winning it. He simply wanted to destory the world that he felt had ruined him.With Sean's arrival in the city, Berne was no longer under the control of House Arryn but was now under the control of the newly created goverment of Sean Lovie self-entitled the True Sons of Lucerne.

They all thought I was after something. They thought I had some great plan to unite the Valley of Lucerne and spread peace like a Man God. In the end it was about the pain I could inflict on a women. It was about finding out how much damage I could do before finally the city just died. Before there was noone left to commit these crimes on. On one hand I wanted to escape the constant anger, and hate I felt, but a darker and a real powerful side of me just wanted more. More of it all, and it didn't care about the end game.
Sean Lovie
It was during this dark time where Byron's rule had been taken over by Sean Lovie that the social climbing member of House Arryn in Allison Arryn rose to prominence as she allowed Sean to act out many of his sexual desires on her. This gave her a growing amount of power, and for a time she came to believe that she was even controlling Sean. Allison Arryn during this period where she believed she was in control would put in place a system that would allow Sean Lovie to regain control of what was nearing collapse. Allison Arryn used her menipulative nature, and the influence of Ella Arryn to trick House Arryn, along with many other high ranking commanders to continue supporting Sean Lovie because she spread the rumor that he had promised her the throne of Lucerne once he was the King. Allison Arryn bided her time day after day as Sean Lovie butchered people in the streets, and raped women all
Allison Arryn1
over the city to the point that the only thing that she could do to slow him down was to continue to surrender her body to him. As she surrendered herself to him she fell into a spell of her own making where she came to believe the lies that she was telling people. She forgot for a time that he was a monster, and she came to believe that this was all a game and he truly loved her. In this madness she would come to find that she was pregnant, and with Sean Lovie being her only sexual partner she was overjoyed to believe that she had given him a heir. When she learned she was pregnant with his child she came to understand how little she controlled when she told him the news. The best description of the events was by Ezio Ederiz who was in the room when it all went down.

Murder of Allison Arryn

Allison Arryn Gif
After he killed Allison there was simply no going back. It was time for me to finally do the right thing.
Ezio Ederiz

As the assembled nobles and Ezio watched as Sean Lovie stabbed Allison Arryn over and over again the silence of the room was broken by the sceams of Ella Arryn of whom walked into the room as Sean stood there defiling her body. Ella Arryn attempted to run to the girl that had become her daughter when she was stopped by several of the gaurds in the room, and upon hearing the commotion Sean got up from her body and walked over to the distraught Ella Arryn of whom was searching the room for anyone who might help. As Sean walked over to her Byron Arryn stood completely frozen, and when his vassal in Benjamin Krinner whispered to him that this was the time to intervene, Byron thought for a moment before seeing the body of Allison and becoming frightened. Instead of telling Benjamin Krinner that yes they should intervene he just allowed Sean Lovie to walk over to his wife with a dagger covered in the blood of his niece. By this point Ella Arryn was screaming uncontrollably, and Sean's loyalists led by Aiden Nighting II., and Eldon Estermont II. would begin to flood into the room from outside to assist. Sean walked up to her and pushed her to the ground before he stabbed her in the arm with the dagger. Standing over her body there was shock and screaming in the room as the Stormcrow gaurds that he had brought in would go about rounding these panicked nobles up and getting them out of the room.

Ella Arryn
Letting his own niece, and wife die were the last of a series of troubling and pathetic acts by the Arch Lord of Berne. His people had long ago lost faith in him, but the troubling part for him was now they had lost respect for him.
Ezio Ederiz

Sean Lovie then stood back up, and still covered in blood walked himself over to his throne, and gestered at the girl before to continue what she was doing. He just remained staring at the dead body of Allison Arryn with a look that many in the room saw as some sort of regret. If he realized the extent of what he had done in that moment is unknown, but as Ezio was ushered out of the room he pushed the girl aside and walked into a backroom followed by several of his loyalists. Ezio walking into the next room found himself walking into the middle of a commotion as Byron Arryn was being held to the ground by Trailen Dorin while his son and nearly a half a dozen House Dorin and vassal men surrounded the panicked gaurdsmen of the Lord. Ezio watched on as Trailen Dorin accused him of treason, and made sure that Byron understood his rule was at an end, and Byron in this pathetic form would begin to weep causing Trailen to punch him in the face before walking away with his men,

End of Darkness Circle 2
Look at the world father. You were born into this land, and you have told me hundreds upon hundreds of times how much you used to love it. Look at everything you have done to it. You destroyed a city for no reason, killed hundreds of good men out of fear. Is this how you want to be remembered father. Is this the world you want to leave behind? I know you were a good person once. I have all the evidence laid out in front of me as to why you are the villain of this world, but I don't fully believe it. Don't end it all here, and be remembered as a monster..


I watched the doors open and close for more time then I would like to admit, but when faced with the choice of that or watching Sean being serviced by that poor girl I had little real options. He just sat there with little emotions on his face, but everyonce in a while I would see a flash of hate as he scanned the room and must have saw someone he hated.

Man after man entered the room as they brought their grievences to their "king". I had seen bad king before. I had seen evil kings before. I had seen more kings then most had, and seeing Sean Lovie listening to his people's desires while the poor girl serviced him sexually was the most disturbing moment of any of my experiences with kings.

A man entered the room with his young wife on his arm, and followed by who must have been their two children. The man and his family bowed before their king and prepared to get the kings justice on whatever matter pained them. "Your Grace I come to you pleading for food for my family. We have not eaten with any real substance for days and I fear my youngest is not long for this world without assistence." The man wept as he spoke, and his wife comforted the little boy clinging to her leg. I wanted to reach out to them. I wanted to give them some of the food that he wasted every night on his parties, but I knew this wasn't within my grasp.

Without showing any signs of noticing the family they remained bowed for nearly a minute in silence until one of the Stormcrow men beside Sean stepped forward and spoke. "Your grace wishes you nothing but the best of the food but there is nothing to spare. The false king of the east has blockaded us, and you shall have to find what food you can on..." Sean's interuption was shocking as this was one of the first times he had spoken during the hours we had been doing this.

"I have some advice for you. You smallfolk should travel outside the main gates and be killed."

"Your Gace?"

"Did I stutter?" The man remained with his mouth open clearly unable to speak from shock. "Perhaps you do not love your king and laugh at my stuttering. Do you laugh at me?"

"No your grace, but..."

"But what? You are a smallfolk, and barely capable of the coversation that you have shown today. Your problems are the problems of a leaf flying in the wind. Go now and die, for that is all you smallfolk are good for." A few Stormblown men moved in and grabbed the family tearing them apart from eachother and took them out of the room where it seemed obvious they were going to be executed outside the gates in Sean's horrible excesses. 

In that moment I moved my hand to my side, and feeling under the cloak I felt the dagger I had safely hidden there. Looking around I saw the dishonorable Daesyn of Harad nearbye and I knew I could stab him and take his sword. With a sword I could butcher every Stormblown in this room until I finally reached the real false king and ended this madness. As I seriously considered ending all this I heard a commotion at the door and watched it slowly open revealing Allison Arryn.

I watched as Allison entered the room with a skip to her step. Her smile was always one that I knew she had manufactured in her mind, but today as she entered I noticed a genuine nature to her eyes. As she approached the mad prince he barely even moved his eyes from the poor women that was on her knees pleasing him, and I saw the sadness momentarily come to her eyes as some piece of her must have realized how wrong this was.

In that moment I came back to thinking about killing Sean. Looking around at the four men that had entered alongside Allison I have no doubt I would be able to still easily kill them all if I was able to still reach Daesyn's neck. The room had maybe four people beyond the Stormblown that would defend him and I could have killed them with ease. Perhaps it was cowerdess. Perhaps it was something elce entirely, but before I could further examine the situation she blurted out to Sean who was still being assisted by the poor women I might add.

"Your Grace I have finally honored you with a child." The moment she said it he looked up from the girl, who stopped immediately servicing him. As she waited with that extatic look on her face the entire room went silent. Everyone stopped what they were doing which seemingly most importantly to Sean was the women that had been at his knees. Perhaps it was that she had stopped that caused the rage. Maybe it was the fact that deep down he understood that he shouldn't father anything. Whatever it was he simply got up walked over to Allison who still had a look of pure happiness and pushed her to the ground before taking out his knife and stabbing her repeatadly in the stomach. He kept stabbing her and she screamed in a terrible blood curdling scream that seemed to shake the foundations of the room in its terrror.

Stabbing her over and over again the Stormblown would move quickly as commotion begin with Dailin Dorin storming towards the scene but being grabbed and taken out of the room by the Stormblown, his son followed closely behind and I watched how his hand moved closer and closer to his sword before they disapeared outside the doors.

As I went for my own dagger some Stormblown fool crashed into me from behind and I mentally slapped myself for being so foolish as to be caught unaware. Knocked to the ground the man kneeled on top of me for a moment and told me to remain calm. As I looked up I could see Sean still stabbing poor Allison and I wanted to pull myself free, but felt helpless in my sadness. The man grabbed me by my shoulders and as he picked me up I shook from a new screaming voice, and looking over I saw Ella Arryn who had barged her way into the room.

Screaming at the top of her lungs she ran towards the bloody mess that was once her beloved Allison Arryn and as she tried to reach her she was grabbed by Daesyn of whom held her watching as Sean defiled Allison's corpse. I wanted to throw up. I wanted it to stop. I had seen horror before. I have killed hundreds if not more in my lifetime, and yet this all just seemed to much.

I looked over and noticed for the first time that Lord Byron Arryn was still in the room. Being whispered to by a very irate Benjamin Krinner he stood pathetically still as his wife screamed at Sean. The fear all over Byron's face was a shocking thing to behold, as he was the most powerful man in this city outside of Sean, and yet he did nothing with that power. A disrespected figure in this city was Byron before, but after this display it was clear that if anyone survived they would not disrespect him, they would hate him.

Then to my right a door slammed open and stepped through were two stormblown men by the color of their armor. I recegnized the one man as Godfrey Toelis, but the other man was unknown to me. Seeing the scene in front of them the one man went to his sword, but before he could pull the sword from his scabbard without a word Godfrey knocked him in the back of the head causing him to fall to the ground. Godfrey roared for his men to put the other man in a cell, and without a word two Stormblown grabbed the man and rushed him out of the room. I continued to watch the man as the Stormblown holding my shoulders somewhat relented watching the show Godfrey was making.

"What have you done Sean!" I turned towards Sean seeing that he was still stabbing his knife into the belly of Allison of which by this point was more of a hole then it was an actually belly, but at the roar of Godfrey he stopped and begin walking towards Godfrey completely covered in blood, but followed closely behind by two of his lackeys in Eldon Estermont II., and Aiden Nighting II. of whom formed a protective guard on both his sides.

"I have done whatever the fuck I want to you bastard." Without warning Sean ran full sprint towards Godfrey crashing into him full speed and knocking the sword out of Godfrey's hand. Before Godfrey could pull out another weapon Sean stabbed him through the neck killing the man and then standing up and shaking himself off like he had something on him he wanted off.

"Does anyone else have anything to fucking say to me." Sean picked up Godfrey's sword and begin waving it around his head screaming. His screams in this moment were interrupted by Ella of whom broke free from Daesyn and went to Allison's body with cradling her broken niece in her arms screaming out in pain. Daesyn attempted to get her back but was restrained by the Stormblown men of whom knocked him to the ground holding him there. As if not noticing her screaming he begin slashing away at Godfrey with the sword, and it said something terrible about the situation that outside of Ella's sobbing the room was utterly silent. Finally Sean must have grown tired of this and stood up covered in the blood of Godfrey, and Allison and stepped towards Ella. Benjamin Krinner kept speaking to Lord Byron and by this point I had been moved close enough to hear what he was saying. He begged his Lord commander to do something. Told him of his men, and their ability to stop this madness. As he begged him there was nothing back. He stood waiting for his Lord to say something but instead of that Byron just stood there. Hating him in that moment I looked back over to Sean and Ella and saw Sean still staring at her as she screamed and yelled at him.

Staring at her for a moment longer he stabbed her in the arm without any warning. "That's the same dagger I just killed her with. You see I've given you a piece of her. Who else in this entire world would be so giving that they would be able to give you the gift that I just gave you." She started screaming again, and it only stopped when he slapped her across the face. "Now your going to get up, and leave this room. Your going to leave this room, and hang yourself. Your going to hang yourself outside the doors of your room, and your going to make sure that no one moves you. Your eyes question me why you would do something like this? Well Ella Arryn your going to do this because I'm going to give you one last gift. I'm going to stop ignoring the fact that my brother's heir is in the hands of that half noble niece of yours. I'm going to rip that baby from her arms and I'm going to bash it apart with a rock. When I'm done with that I'm going to kill Hanna. I'm going to kill Spencer. I'm going to kill them All. I will give them the peace that you want for them. I do it all for you. I'm a very generous King."

Death of Ella Arryn

Aria Arrny Large
I saw her walk in with nothing more then a casual glance at first. I mean you see your mother, and you just assume she's here to get your clothes to clean or something. You never immediatly see your mother and think, hey she's going to take out a knife and try and kill my sister. That just isn't the first thing that pops into your mind.
Aria Arryn
Following all of this Ella Arryn was picked up Byron Arryn her husband who attempted to take her back to her room so he could fix her arm, but she ran away from him towards the location of Aria Arryn's room. Ella Arryn ran into her room to find her sitting on the bed with Hanna, and Amber Heard also in the room. The discust that Ella Arryn felt in that moment for Hanna Arryn was so much that even covered in blood and losing the ability to even move her arm she roared at her step-daughter. All the girls in the room had at first though the was there to see Aria, but now they looked at her and saw the blood stemming from her arm, and the crazed look in her eyes. As Aria, and Amber rushed to her to see what had happened to her arm she tried to charge through them so that she could get to Hanna, and in this moment she took out a
Aria Arryn Gif2
dagger and rushed at Hanna. Hanna dodged the knife by only a little before falling off the backside of the bed. After this attempt Amber, and Aria were able to get ahold of her just enough that they pushed her back away from Hanna, but she wasn't going to stop this time, and rushed once more at Hanna. This time the girls got in front of her, and just as she raised her dagger to charge again they watched as a sword punched itself through her chest. Before she fell forward and arm reached around her front and held her up, and the girls saw Trailen Dorin behind her holding her up with the saddest look on his face. In this moment she coughed out blood before saying her last words on the Earth.
Taiven Dolin
Aria, Amber you girls need to leave now. Hide yourself now. The Mad King...The Mad King comes for you...and he knows of...he knows of the child. Save yourselves. The family must not die out with the rest of this city.
Ella Arryn

With those last words Trailen gently rested her down on the ground, and she slowly bled out. Before she finally succumbed she asked to speak to Hanna Arryn of whom walked to her, and in this moment everyone assembled expected her to apologize or to atleast see some of the errors of her ways, but instead she looked up at Hanna and spit blood in her face before finally dying. With this Trailen quickly got up and made the girls perfectly aware that they needed to get the hell out of her. The girls told him that this was the Arryn estate in Berne and they had no where to go, and as the group panicked Benjamin Krinner walked in behind them and told the group that they would come stay with him in the Krinner Estate. The girls quickly followed behind him, but Amber stopped them and said she had to get Thomas. Benjamin went to her and told her that Sean had already sent someone to her room to get the child and that it was too late. Amber didn't accept this and ran off from the group towards her room where she prayed that she wasn't too late.

Amber Captured

Amber Heard 1
I ran to that room faster then I had ever run anywhere elce in my life. I knew in that moment that everything in my life had led me to this place. To this moment. I had to save our son.
Amber Heard II.

When she opened the door to the room she found a body laying face down on the ground coughing and bleeding out, and she stepped past the body to the room where Thomas should have been, and when she walked in his room she found the body of her maid lying dead beside his bed, and beside her another man's body, but no signs of little Thomas. She fell to her knees and cried, but before she could cry for long a man wrapped his hand around her and covered her mouth at the same time before pulling her into the closet. As he did this he whispered for her to be quiet, before she heard other men enter the room all armed from what she could see through the door. These men begin screaming out to try and lure her out, and in this moment she looked at the man and whispered to him whether he had saved Thomas. When the man nodded his head, she told him to keep him safe from harm and the put her hand to the door. Before she opened the door she asked the man what the name was of the man that had saved her son, and he quietly told her that it was Ezio Ederiz. And with that Amber Heard said one last thank you before she pulled the handle and opened the door and walked into the room thus allowing the men to take her. The men would harshly pull her through the hallways that made up the Heard Estate, and from here they took her to the throne room of Sean Lovie where he was at that moment stabbing his knife into the body of Allison Arryn. Seeing this she cried out, and this caused Sean to notice her, and he looked over at her with a look of pure enjoyment. He cleared out the room including his gaurds of whom he ordered to place her in a cage to the right of his throne, which he had brought in. With Amber now in a cage he sat himself beside the cage, and stared at her, before speaking to her for the first time in years.

Do you remember me Amber? Does your mind remember the stories they told of me there back in Lucerne. Do you quiver in fear knowing that what I just did to your cousin is going to be the same thing that I do to you. My men tell me that your child, and my young nephew was not in your room. Did you kill those men who came to steal your child? I doubt this. I want to know who was helping you. I want to know a name. Speak now. Speak now or I shall do things to you so henious. So painful that you will wish for the cold embrace of death. You will beg me for the oppurtunity to sell your son away just so that your pain may cease. Speak now. Noone comes for you Amber. This isn't like Lucerne where you can hope that William is coming for you. He can't get inside. He's been sitting outside these walls for months trying to get in. But the trick is. The great lie is that he can never get in. No matter how much he tries to free this city he will never sucede. So I say again, speak now.
Sean Lovie
Amber looked into the horribly evil eyes of Sean Lovie and for the first time in her life since she had allowed herself to be intimidated by Bill Lovie she understood exactly what she had to do. She spit in Sean's face before retreating the opposite end of the cage away from him. Sean Lovie just laughed and told her that they had lots of
Amber Heard Gif5
time left, and then he got up and walked over to the body of Allison and proceeded to violate her in front of Amber. Amber turned away and covered her ears as Sean continued to violate her, and it went this way for longer then she could count. After however long he stopped and ordered his gaurds to bring her out of the cage where he then proceeded to have her stripped and as she stood there naked, he walked around her and ran his hand across her body before finally brining in a suit that he forced her to put on before putting her back in the cage. Each day Sean would attempt to get her to tell him, and each day he would do something terrible to someone in an attempt to make her speak.

Saving Thomas Lovie

Thomas Lovie
The child was completely innocent. Whatever crimes the world may make up for the adults of the world these just shouldn't be true for this child. Everything he might be. Everything he should be was what they wanted to take away from him, and this was exactly what I refused to allow to happen.
Ezio Ederiz

With Amber Heard now taken in by Sean Lovie, Ezio made his way out of the closet and went to the window and proceeded to raise young Thomas Heard from the basket that he had him sitting in outside the window. Ezio picked up the young boy and told the young boy that he needed to be strong for his mother, as Thomas had heard everything that had happened to his mother but couldn't speak or help because Ezio had roped his mouth shut so that he wouldn't scream. Thomas blamed himself and Ezio took the moment to make sure that Thomas understood that nothing he could have done would have saved his mother from being taken. But that didn't meant that he couldn't help, because she wasn't dead and thus there was always hope. He gave the child one last pat on the shoulder before strapping the child to his back and then jumping out the window and climbing across the roof towards the only safe place he knew of in this hell hole. Ezio made his way to the home of Alistair, and it was here that he hid Thomas while he prepared to save the city. Thomas would remain hidden with Alistair's men inside his small enclave of the city, and through this Thomas would become a member of the rebellion as he sharpened swords, and did whatever elce he could do to help the men of the rebellion in doing what he hoped would free his mother from Sean Lovie.

City Layout

Berne
The city of Berne is built deep inside the mountains and it is approachable through a winding opening, and then a vast field, followed by another vast field. Each of these is defended by defences that are built into the mountains meaning they cannot be assailed until you reach the deepest sections of the mountain and by this point you probably have very little forces left.

The city is obviously in Orc held territorry but is nearbye Quel'Thalas so it has some protection but it suffers more attacks then any other city in Lucerne.

Travel can be done westward through the road out, but most travel is accomplished through the Underway which is the vast underground tunnel road that connects Berne with Lucerne.

House Arryn

See Also : House Arryn

House Arryn is the main house and Lord House of the Lucernian city of Berne.

Originally from Forks, their discontent in their importance in the city led Bill Lovie to use them when he began construction of Berne. When they arrived at Berne they were at first effective leadership for the town, and were the main reason it grew in the beggining as quickly as it did. Once Andrew Lovie banished Sean Lovie during the end of the Journey they found their position basically taken over by Sean, and his True Sons of Lucerne.

The House was a central member and also very unwilling member of theTrue Sons of Lucerne . They played a significant role in the Lucernian Civil War as they were used by the True Sons as the figureheads for the movement, and in this way were forced to do some very violent things by the order of Sean. At the end of the war many in their house were executed for treason but due to the love Andrew had for Hannah Martin and the efforts of a few of the members of HOuse Arryn they were allowed to retain their lordship over Berne.

House Krinner

House Krinner is a medium sized Goth House located within the Kingdom of Lucerne inside the city of Berne. House Krinner is one of the earliest of the vassal houses of House Arryn and they form the backbone of the military detatchment that House Arryn relies upon for most of their campaigns.

Their motto is, “As High as Honor.” and they have formed this motto off the model that their Lord House in House Arryn uses as theirs. This motto stands on the fact that they feel that they are an ancient line of a family that makes the example they set for everyone elce vastly more important then just being wealthy, and powerful.

House Krinner was originally apart of the larger House Morint but during the years before the Driving Tide several members of House Krinner were married to daughters in House Morint and the daughters were so loyal to House Morint that they took much of what made that house work into their new house creating a new house. During this time House Krinner was a vassal of House Krinner, but this changed when during the Driving Tide House Morint was mauled during the fighting and its Lord died along with his only sons meaning the house was basically gone for all intensive purposes. With this in mind, House Krinner became the vassal of House Arryn following the Driving Tide, and they became more heavily situated inside Forks then they had been before. When House Arryn moved to Berne they were obviously followed by their vassals and House Krinner was no exception to this, and they became one of the primary houses within Berne upon arriving.

House Dorin

House Dorin is a medium sized Visigoth House that lies inside the Kingdom of Lucerne and makes its center of operations within the city of Berne. House Dorin was given to House Arryn as a vassal shortly after their sudden arrival in the Kingdom of Lucerne and since this day they have done everything possible to prove their loyalty to their Lord House.

Their motto is, “As High as Honor.” and they formed this motto based on the motto of their Lord House in House Arryn. This motto stands on the fact that they feel that they are an ancient line of a family that makes the example they set for everyone elce vastly more important then just being wealthy, and powerful.

House Dorin is one of the youngest houses in the Kingdom of Lucerne as they only reached the valley of Lucerne during the reign of James Lovie, and the numbers they brought with them were deemed at first to be a threat considering that the other Visigoth houses didn't know of House Dorin, but it was deemed after a time that they would become a member of the Kingdom of Lucerne and in this way they were given to House Arryn as a vassal house.

House Heard

"My House deserved a better fate then what it found. My sister did not deserve to fall the way she did and no matter what I do from this point on the House I grew up with is gone. Nothing left but the memory of the good days."

-Mike Heard

House Heard is a very minor house in theKingdom Of Lucerne that has become a tributary House of House Arryn.

Once a mightier house they fell into this position when their male heirs were killed during the events of the Plague, and the only surviving member was Amber Heard who married Benjamin Arryn and thus basically merged the two houses. House Heard now uses the House Arryn sigil as their own as the two have ceased being seperate Houses.

Mike Heard the male son of Amber Heard, and Benjamin Arryn decided following the death of his sister during the Battle of Berne that the House Heard name was gone, and he would completely enter the ranks of House Arryn. This means that perhaps one of the top ten largest houses in Lucerne had fallen into extinction in less then 15 years, a truly magnificant fall that mirrors perhaps only the fall of House Targaryan.
