James Lovie II. or Bill Lovie is the son of Margeary, and James Lovie making him a member, and the long time Patriarch of House Lovie through his father, and a member of House Ordos through his mother. Bill Lovie has two siblings in the form of Catherine, and Martin Lovie of whome his sister Catherine has taken on the role of being the mother to Alice, and William his two children and done many of the tasks that Kathy should have done, while his brother Martin died on the battlefields of the Battle of Lyons. Bill Lovie came to marry Kathy Tyrell with whome he became the father of Sean, Alice and William Lovie III. of which he came to truly hate Sean, and Alice while at the same time feeling a devotion to William in a way that bordered on fanatasism. Alongside his marriage to Kathy Tyrell he also engaged in a long term affair with Esme Portmane in which he fathered three children in the form of Natalie, Diane, and Jamie Portmane of which he had no relationship with whatsoever but did tell William about their excistence which reconsiled them into House Lovie.
Bill Lovie was a level one Magi at the time of his birth mainly through his bloodline of Dragonborn ancestors, but this level one Magi would increase dramatically following his use of Mycstism which increased him to a level three Magi but his control was very low without the book almost non-excistent,
Bill Lovie was born the first child of his father James Lovie and at the time of his birth he was the first in the line of succession to both House Lovie and the monarchy of the Kingdom of Lucerne making him an extremely powerful person at the time of his birth. Bill Lovie grew up during the peaceful, and positive reign of Jame Lovie, and during this time he was close and loving with his siblings and his parents. At the tournament of Roses in 5093 it was Bill Lovie and Lisa Tyrell the long time betrothed that would meet for the first time and despite attempts by some of the other houses to win the tournament it was BIll Lovie that won and named his betrothed the Queen of Love and Beauty and then the two were married in a small ceremony outside of Nortburg a few weeks after this. The once gentle and kind man disapeared though following this, as he lost himself following the disasterous Battle of Lyons, and then to compound the death of that battle he was forced to head back towards Lucerne while spending time with a dark man of whom would eventually give him the idea to search the House Lovie library for a book called Mycstism. When he returned to Lucerne he spent weeks in the Library of House Lovie which he came to love because it was the only place he could get some peace and quiet but during this time of reading he discovered the book entitled Mystism of which completely darkened his mind. Bill Lovie would become the instigator of a truly henious series of events of which the first was an event known as The Plague which he instigated after he believed that his enemies were plotting against him and led to the deaths of thousands throughout the Kingdom of Lucerne in his drive to kill his persieved enemies. Following this he pushed the Orcs of Marseilles into attacking the city of Tree Hill of which he purposely left nearly completely undefended and then also assisted the Orcs in entering the valley leading to the diasterous First Battle of Tree Hill. Esme Portmane would return to Lucerne during the peak of Bill Lovie's road to madness after he wrote her a letter begging her to save him from the prison his mind was trapped in and returning to Lucerne she attempted to destroy Mycstism but its Magi protected it and she then nearly killed Bill at his urging but as she was going to do it his corruption took over and he nearly killed her and after a brief scuffle he used his Magi to teleport her back to Lorderon. Following his inability to stop William Lovie III. he would come to understand that the end of his reign was at hand and despite oppurtunities to resist he was unwilling to attack William and thus allowed William to depose him but in the final moments of their confrontation he fled Lucerne for Orleans. After fleeing lucerne he has returned to Lucerne many times to interact with many people, and for this reason their are defences being placed around Lucerne to restrict the ability to do this. Bill Lovie would once again enter the world of lucerne when Hermione Granger would enter the city of Olreans in her attempt to gain the Deathly Hollows. During this time an increasingly insane version of Bill Lovie is revealed to the story as he comes to believe through the menipulation of Hermione Granger that she is actually Alice Lovie and because of this he increasingly gives her more and more power and influence. Bill Lovie would finally reach his end as his final attempt to be killed would be reached when forces under the command of his relative in Sophia Lovie infiltrated Orleans and instigated a rebellion in the city leading to a dramatic confrontation between himself and Sophia and his death at her hands.
Bill Lovie during his youth was a man whose personality inspired loyalty and friendship from nearly everyone he met, and while he did have conflicts these were mainly due to his prevailing loyalty which he felt for basically anyone that he was close too. Following his corruption at the Battle of Lyons his slip into madness and depression would change him nearly completely from this person he once was leaving him basically unrecognizable to those who had known him growing up.
Bill Lovie was born the first child of his father James Lovie and at the time of his birth he was the first in the line of succession to both House Lovie and the monarchy of the Kingdom of Lucerne making him an extremely powerful person at the time of his birth.
Bill Lovie was born in Lucerne to James Lovie, and Helga Lovie. At a young age Bill Lovie was always popular due to his outgoing personality, and good looks. This popularity lead to him growing a bit arrogant, and this arrogance would become a problem later in his life. But during his youth he came to enjoy the company of his friends, and in these friendships he would enter the Lucernian Academy. At the Lucernian Academy he would become the most popular kid at the academy, of which a lot had to do with the fact that he was the heir to the throne. In the end he and his best friend Draco Highmore were inseperable, and it was under these cercumstances that he would be pulled out of class to be told that his father King James Lovie had passed away.
Arrival of Esme Portmane
Arriving in Lucerne she spent all her time either working with Margeary Ordos or at the Lucernian Academy and it was while at the Lucernian Academy that she became close with two boys in the form of Carlisle Cullen, and James Lovie II. and these relationships would come to define her.
Death of James Lovie
The suddenness of his death was such that the society, and the goverment were unsure of how to move forward. As the goverment was driven with paralysis there was a movement by a few members of the Council of lucerne of whom once again wanted to place an incumbent in charge while they awaited Bill Lovie to get older. As this gained steam it was Tywin Lannister, alongside Maergary Ordos that begin pushing hard for Bill to be immediatly placed in the place of King of Lucerne so that he would not have to deal with another situation like he did when James Lovie spent his entire reign under the influence of the previous regent in Jacob. In this way Tywin Lannister would convinse his fellow Lord in Genn Greymane to join with him in placing Bill on the throne even at his young age, and as a means of appeasement Maergary Ordos was named the regent of the Kingdom of Lucerne.

Following the birth of Diane Portmane it was Esme and Bill that begin to correspond through letters keeping their love alive despite Bill having grown to have real feelings for Lisa and this connection would lead to them meeting in Stormwind where the two slept together and Esme became pregnant with their second child.
War in France
Main Article : War in France
The Orcs breaking out of Hispania caused a massive amount of chaos to spread throughout Europe. At first like many of the members of the Kingdom of Lucerne he looked at it with little importance as he was dealing with a lot of the leadership issues that were going alongside with him taking over from his father. He was pushed in different directions by his council of which some wanted him to stay completely out of the talk of assistance as they didn't want to waste energy protecting their rival in the Roman Empire. While this happened though it was Draco Highmore that would romanticize the protection of the land from the rampaging forces of the Orcs, and thus it was without anyone realizing it that Bill Lovie was becoming very interested in saving the land from the Orcs. A council was held in the French City of Lyon. As king of one of the mighty kingdoms of Europe he attended the council.
Council of Lyons
Main Article : Council of Lyons
Bill Lovie traveled to the Bretonian city of Lyons where he met with the leadership of the European human Kingdoms where they would decide the direction they were all going to take. Bill was strongly on the side of the Bretonians and was fully on board with a completely all in mentality on the part of the humans of Europe. The meeting would go especially well, and would lead to a massive combined human and Dwarf force that would head towards the Lyons area, and take part in the Battle of Lyons.
Battle of Lyons
Main Article : Battle of Lyons
The opening to the battle would begin with the Human armies moving into position around the besieged city. The commanders in charge had placed a strategy of encirclement with the largest army in the Romans facing what was the strongest section of the Orcs, and the second strongest in The Empire facing the east side. With this strategy the element of surprise was the most important aspect, and this was mainly due to the fact that the Orc besieging army had well over a million orcs in it. The human alliance was almost six hundred thousand but no where near big enough to compete without an ambush. There is much speculation as to what happened in the Roman lines, and the fact that very few survived, and those that did do not speak of it doesn't help things. It is believed by most that the Romans believed they could take the army without the Bretonian, Lucernian, and Alcase assistance and because of this they begin bombarding the Orc lines. This attack did heavy damage to the closest Orc forces, but it also alerted the whole sieging force that they were surrounded. With the Orcs now at full alert they ignored the city of Lyons and simply charged the nearest human they could find, which meant that the million plus orcs were now charging as one massive pack, and the entire ambush was a failure.
Return to Lucerne
Following the violence and hopelessness that he felt and saw during the War in France, Bill began to lose his grasp on his humanity. The ride back from the battle was perhaps the true nail in the coffin as he was riding with a broken hear-ted Roman soldier by the name of Pablius Reeter. It was on the escape from France when the true moment of Bill Lovie's life would come. This was the moment where the fork in the road for Bill appeared, and fate decided to involve Pablius Reeter. Pablius Reeter was a Roman soldier that survived the battle but watched as three of his children, and his father did not. In this kind of emotional state it wasn't shocking when he was beyond pessimistic. After two weeks of walking with Pablius Reeter Bill and the survivors of the Lucerne army arrived at the edges of the Lucerne Kingdom. When the group arrived in Lucerne, there was sadness, but also happiness that at least some had survived. Bill went to his family, and attempted to find peace again, but he was quite dramatically changed by the things he'd seen as well as the words spoken by Pablius. Each night as Kathy fell deeper into depression, Bill would sneak to the Lovie family library and searched their books for some sort of answer to how to escape his growing madness.
Return of Esme Portmane
Following the return of Bill Lovie from the War in France it was Esme Portmane that returned to Lucerne deciding she needed to see him and the two would spend time together before his growing emotional erraticness would lead to Esme leaving but she did leave pregnant with their third child together.
Main Article : Mystism
It was during one of these searches of the House Lovie library that he found a book that would change his mind for good, and set the Kingdom of Lucerne in a tailspin. He would begin searching in the locked section of the House Lovie library, and discovered Mystism which was a book hidden by William Lovie due to its historical connection with darkness and evil. Not knowing the true depths of the book's evil Bill Lovie became obsessed with the book and for months he would spend every night reading the book over and over again. Each time he read the book his mind became more wrapped up in the things he learned about Magi.
While before reading the book he had no connection to the Fade and was of level 0 in terms of Magi, following the reading of the book he would begin to have an increasingly powerful connection to the Fade as the book opened his connection simply through the words on the page. He saw less and less hope in victory in the conventional way, and believed that only through his growth in Magi power would the Kingdom ever survive, It was during this time that he founded the Circle of Magi, and went about its expansion into a organization that would be the hand in all of his endeavors.
Being a King
With the failure of Bill Lovie to find a way to get William to love him, he began looking for someone youthful who could fill this role. In this way he had his minions find a talented young boy who he could begin training to be completely loyal to him. The search ended when they discovered Pippin in the small village of Klaerin. Pippen was the perfect canidate for what he wanted, and the only problem was gaining his complete loyalty. In order to due this, Bill went to the village and began forming a relationship with young Pippin, and also befriended his parents. This had the effect of making him appear to be someone that cared about Pippin and his family.

| The Unspoken Civil War |
This is the price of betraying your king. Look at this man and understand the fate of anyone who thinks they may turn against the Dragon.
Following Bill Lovie's Suicide Attempt that ended in failure there were several high profile people imprisoned in the form of Catherine Bell, and Eddard Starke but for most this was seen as something that must be based in truth and thus outside of House Starke who petitioned heavily for the release of Eddard Starke there was little outcry to these imprisonments. The true match that would set off the rebellion within Lucerene begin after Bill Lovie travelled southward to Gulltown and hosted the fated Tournament of 5110 in Gulltown. The tournament itself went off without much a hitch, but after several of the fated knights of Bill Lovie lost Bill became openly hostile to everyone that wasn`t his sole remaining knight at the tournament in James Nighting. As the tournament went on and as all the Arch Lords of the land were there he begin shouting and acting as if insane during the dinner before the final bout of the tournament. Surrounded by loyalists to him in the Nighting`s, Jestifes, and Scorpians noone dared speak as he continued to scream, but the effects of this were terrible on his Lords who lost complete faith in him. It was only when Carlisle Cullen tricked Bill into leaving under the lie that William was nearbye would Bill Lovie stumble out of the dining hall and carried by his sworn knights pass out in his room.
Despite the horrible ranting by Bill he demanded the tournament continue, and all did this as they were loyal and Carlisle had worked hard to say that the king was just exhausted. At the final joust James Nighting was defeated by the Hedge Knight Halys Forend of whom was a knight of House Jackson, and following this Bill Lovie would leave his seat and travel to where Hayls was celebrating and while everyone bowed before their king Bill Lovie would walk up to him and decapitate the man. Causing screaming amongst the crowd as his family watched him die the place went crazy and only the calling in of the House Lovie gaurds there would stop a riot from starting. Dozens of Smallfolk were killed during the riot as the violent Nighting`s unleased rage on those they felt insulent enough to riot in the presence of the king. Outside of the smallfolk the hedge knights family were rounded up as well and executed alongside several of the other noblemen who had dared to speak out against the violence. Watching all of this transpire from behind the stands was Walter Jackson of whom stood beside his old friend Tywin Lannister of whom also watched the King go mad. Looking at eachother they both then left the tournament as everyone had been commanded to leave.
Rise and Fall of a Rebel
Following the disasterous tournament most of the Lords went back to their holdings and tried to return to life as usual, but the simply fact was that all knew their king was mad. One who didn`t sit idle was Walter Jackson and Charlie Swan of whom met together in Forks several times and begin forming the first elements of the Rebels in Lucerne. Staying very silent about their leanings the two would expand themselves, and found huge support amongst the Lords of the north, and the Reach. The Tyrells became a serious supporter hoping as they always did to gain more power and perhaps their own Arch Lord position if they were able to take Bill from the throne and replace him with his son. As the rebellion itself was growing in strength the sanity of Bill Lovie was decling to newer levels as he had now had debased his one true relationship with Carlisle Cullen after he tricked Esme Portmane into betraying Carlisle and having several of his bastards.
The movement reached its end following Walter Jackson attempting to gain the support of House Lannister when he contacted Tywin Lannister. Walter had known Tywin as a child and when he knew him back then he belived he knew Tywin to be an honorable man who would know what the right thing to do was and what the wrong thing was. When Walter first told the other rebels what he planned to do they all were combined in telling Walter that he should not tell Tywin as Tywin was not trustworthy, and they didn't need his sort of person involved in the rebellion. Walter was arrogant in his belief that he could convinse Tywin so he ignored the rest of them and travelled to Stormwind where he met first with Brandon Starke who was on board with the action but with the imprisonment of his brother and lord of House Starke he was not willing to actually commit forces to the fight for fear of the king responding by killing Eddard Starke. Once he was done talking to Brandon he met with Tywin and the two talked for some time before Walter believed that he had turned Tywin to his way of thinking. Tywin said goodbye and told Walter that House Lannister was fully behind the plan, and that he would rally his banner houses when the time was right. And thus Walter left Stormwind believing that he had completed his dream of seeing the madness of King Bill Lovie removed.
The moment that Walter left the room Tywin ordered his gaurd to call Cersei and Jamie to him. When his children arrived he told them to take the children, and to find their brother and leave for Lannistane. Once there they were to make sure that none entered the city as he was about to tell the king about a rebellion and knowing the king there was going to be a lot of violence and he didn't want his family or the banner houses damaged by it. Jamie wondered outloud to him whether or not it might be more prudent to assist the rebels since the king was mad, but Tywin simply reminded him of what they had done to their rebels and said there was a high price to pay for rebellion. Following this Tywin left Stormwind and travelled to Lucerne where he immediatly was given audiance with King Bill Lovie.
House Greymane had the extremely unlucky time of having several of their members in the Lucerne Palace when Tywin told Bill Lovie about the rebellion. Bill was so enraged at the news that when he remembered that House Greymane member Darius Greymane was waiting so that his family could meet their king. Bill in his enraged state turned to Tywin Lannister and asked him whether House Greymane could be invovled and in that moment Tywin remembered the anger he had towards Archibold Greymane about the way he had treated Tywin's father. In that moment Tywin lied and told Bill that House Greymane had been involved. With this lie Bill left the throne room with his personal gaurd and as Darius and his family bowed before there king Bill raised his sword and started slashing at Darius while his gaurd killed the rest of the family. Its said that Bill slashed at Darius for so long that there was nothing left of him but a bloody mess on the ground.
Death of the Rebellion
House Jackson was painted very early on as the ringleader of the rebellion and for this reason their destruction was made to be paramount but also Bill wanted to know the true extent of the movement and for this reason the operation had to make sure that they captured Walter Jackson alive so that he could be tortured for information. It was decided that assasins from Ravenholdt would join members of House Nighting, and House Jestife in the destroying the rebels completely and utterly. Brandon Von Gruger would accompany the dark and twisted Terrorblade alongside some fifty men at arms from House Nighting of whom had been commanded to destroy House Jackson completely outside of the Patriarch of whom was to be captured alive. Brandon had killed innocent's before but something about the way in which this was going didn't sit well in his stomach. When they captured Walter, one of the assasins went back into the house in the pretents of making sure everyone was dead. When the assasin Brandon Von Gruger entered the room where Josh's mother had been killed he found Joshua rubbing his mother's back trying to get her to wake up. The assasin in this moment moved to the child, and whispered for him to be very quiet if he wanted to live. The assasin then proceeded to put the child behind him attatched to a rope, and hidden behind his cloak. This was how Joshua travelled to Lucerne, and when they arrived the assasin brought him to the steps of the Lucerne orphanage and left him there.
Survival of Joshua Jackson
Brandon stayed with Joshua for two weeks in order to make sure that he wasn't going to be attacked or found out about. He knew though eventually Joshua would be discovered and when this happened he knew the assasins would be forced to attack him again in order to not fail their mission.
Destruction of House Heard
In the same way that House Jackson had led the rebellion House Heard was one of the greater supporters and for this reason Bill made sure that their punishment was severe. At the time several of the sons of House Heard were located in Lucerne as they were serving inside the actual gaurd of Lucerne. The heir to the throne of House Heard in Martin Heard, along with his brother Telvin Heard were located in Lucerne and they were both summoned to their commanders office where when they entered they were attacked by the gaurds inside and killed. Their bodies were hung from the rafters of the Lucerne wall. Following this assassins entered the actual house heard home in Forks where they proceeded to butcher the entire family. The wife and children of Telvin were destroyed along with the patriarch of the house in Hektor Heard who was forced to be dragged throughout the house and look at the sene of his entire family destroyed. In a mistake by the assasins the other side of House Heard was left alive because they were on a trip west to visit the city of Hillsbrad when the attacks were underway.
Throughout the events of the rebellion it was Eddard Starke and Catherine Bell that remained imprisoned within Lucerne and with the killings now spreading both families of the imprisoned became desperate to have them released. With the rebellion destroyed with House Jackson and the others it was Brandon Starke that arrived at Lucerne and swore and oath of loyalty to Bill Lovie and with Eddard also swearing the oath Bill Lovie prepared their release but before he would fully release him he demanded a hostage which he got when they agreed to send their young sister Lyanna Starke to Lucerne where she would be held as a hostage in order to maintain their loyalty.
Following the departure of Tywin Lannister Nedrick Baratheon who was the Patriarch of the house at the time went to Lucerne with his daughter Sarah and his son Edward and hoped to make the point of the rebels known to Bill Lovie. His arrival though was misunderstood by Bill Lovie and instead of seeing it as the peace offering that it was he saw the coming of Nedrick and his children as a hostile act, and had the three executed in the main square of Lucerne. Following this act he went about dealing with Tywin`s next hint in House Hale who he said had great involvement and was the main financier of the rebellious movement. When Tywin had come to Bill and told him the extent of the rebellion Bill had been shocked and terrified about the involvement of House Hale. Firstly he had once been close to Tarnide Hale II., and for this reason he didn't know what to make of his betrayal and for the second reason House Hale had made themselves so important financially that Bill couldn't just destroy them as he did all the other rebels involved. Needing to know the truth of House Hale's invovlement it was Bill that sent Carlisle Cullen to the house and with Carlisle still blackmailed by Bill he would manipulate his friend Tarnide Hale II. into revealing that it was Lord Tarnide Hale his father that was the main culprit and with this information Carlisle left the house and returned to Bill revealing this information. In his growing paranoia and madness Bill would come to the conclusion that he must destroy House Hale but due to their importance he was talked out of this by Kieth Schwartz and it was agreed that they would kill their former friend Tarnide Hale II. as a warning to the house that rebellion would not be accepted.
In order to make sure Tarnide Hale understood the consequences of rebellion it was James that went personally alongside his personal guard and several members of the Circle of Magi during the night and took the Hale estate by force gathering the entire family in the courtyard of their estate. With the entirety of House Hale in the courtyard (outside of Jasper Hale who had been removed from the situation by spending the night with William Lovie III. at the Cloud Tower) he would have have the entire house watch as his guards murdered Tarnide Hale II. who was the heir to House Hale and Bill's friend alongside. Bill Lovie and Tarnide Hale would have the following conversation following the murder and it would be the last true time they spoke as anything other then master ans servant. Taking Rosalie Hale with him as a prisoner Bill Lovie would have her placed in the dungeons beneath the Cloud Tower and despite frequent attempts to have her released it was Bill that made her release known to be something that was not in question until such time that he felt that House Hale was completely loyal to him and only him.
In Northern Lucerne where the smallfolk had turned on the authority with gusto it was the actions of House Scorpian and House Jestife that sealed the ending of the Plague. Rounding up hundreds of rebels supporters through the use of traitors wihtin their ranks they would execute hundreds in penguin courts held in the forests. Eventually they just targeted whoever they wanted and after weeks of this they had killed thousands across the north.
Turning to Madness
Chaos of Youth
| The Demitri Incident |
Alice was simply off limits. I hope to god his broken corpse proved that.
As a young man though there was no relationship that could ever match up to the one he had with his sister Alice. This relationship would come to define him, and in subtle ways would be a major source of the distrust and hate between William and Sean Lovie as well as between William and his father. No matter who came or went from William's life the one constant love in his heart, and the person that everyone knew meant the world to him was Alice Lovie, and this came to be something that many close to him told him would one day become a weakness to him. As the two grew closer and closer William's hobbies became Alice's hobbies, and the things Alice enjoyed William tried to enjoy as well. This came to the front as the two came to really enjoy going down to Lucerne proper on their free days, and in these times they would play as if they were adventure's from a distant land, and not the prince, and princess of the Kingdom of Lucerne. This came to become a part of their lives that was a secret from everyone outside of Jasper, and Leven and for them as they spent more and more time escaping the world that for Alice was filled with pain, and for William was filled with regret, over what he knew he should be doing but for whatever reason he was to weak to become the prince the people needed.
The Demitri Incident
The Demitri incident was the the event that occurred when Bill Lovie hired mercenary Demitri Volturi to assassinate Alice. Bill Lovie would send his feelers throughout the neighboring regions as he definitely couldn't use someone from Lucerne, and after talking with Ravenholdt he was silently told no as the man he had talked to was Ezio Ederiz and he spoke against dealing with Bill Lovie although Bill would not know that it was Ezio that had done this. Eventually after exhausting better sources of assassins Bill would settle on a young man named Demitri Volturi of whom had a growing reputation for getting the job done despite the morality of the target. Demitri was a member of the Roman Family House Volturi of whom were an extremely wealthy family within the northern Italian country side. In his boredom Demitri had come to selling himself as a mercenary to keep his strength strong, and during this he had become involved with many morally ambivalent targets. Demitri had become completely used to the orders of others and this had caused an emotional collapse in the young man as he was forced by his trade to provide the killing of people that he knew nothing about. He was watched at this point for several weeks by Alex Kirsh of whom was commanded to watch him and make sure that he was someone who was capable of doing the act. In order to test him Alex would hire a group of bandits of whom he was able to convinse to attempt to rob the home of the Volturi of which was truly wealthy, and a good prize. The bandits would attack the estate where Demitri was at the moment, and at this point the foolish bandits attempted to attack the main gate despite being told by Alex not too, and Demitri awaited them as they entered the main courtyard. Demitri would over several minutes target and kill the entire group with throwing daggers and never was forced to engage them in combat despite their attempts to find him. Seeing this convinsed Alex of the skill of the man, and thus he returned to Lucerne to tell Bill Lovie about his findings.
It was at this point following the words of Alex Kirsh that he was contacted by Bill Lovie, who wanted Demitri to enter Lucerne and kill Alice. Bill was forced to once again use an alias and would travel to the lands of northern Italy alongside his growing Circle of Magi, and in fact the man that Demitri thought was Bill Lovie was actually Kieth Schwartz acting as a body double in case of trouble. Bill would make sure he was able to enter the city, and once inside he was to find Alice and kill her. Told that for this brief period of time the defences of the Cloud Towers would be lessened, and he would be able to climb the walls of the tower without resistence. Demitri was told that he was in no way to harm Bill's son William Lovie III., and that his death would be a certainty if he did. Kieth also made sure to note that Alice needed to be strangled so that they could make it look afterwards like she had hung herself, and their could not be any sign of physical violence. After at first laughing about the hypocrisy of killing one child and protecting the other one, he was silently approached from the side by Bill who pulled back the hood and said the following to Demitri.
After this Demitri understood his command completely and agreed to the task set before him, and with this the five members of the Circle of Magi, and Bill would leave the meeting place and return to Lucerne. Demitri returned to Rome for a time where he fashioned a team of other assasins that he would use in order to enter the city of Lucerne, and eliminate any threats that he found once he arrived. What his assasins did not know was that he was going to use them as a lure to allow him to more safely enter the tower since he didn't have complete confidence in Bill Lovie getting him inside what many deemed to be the most heavily fortified capital in the region.
An Uninvited Guest
Demitri would come to camp a few hours south of Lucerne, and during this time he was met by Kieth Schwartz of whom assured him once again that he would have a simple entry into the city, and he needed to be done by the following day or he would begin to arise suspicion. During that night he spent time talking with Keith Schwartz about Lucerne, and he was shocked about the level of depravity that Kieth and the Circle of Magi were getting involved in, and when he asked Kieth why they were targeting their own people for so much destruction he was shocked about the anwser. Kieth would tell him that they were doing it because the Orcs were going to win, and the only way to survive was to force the people to retreat northward into the mountains, and they would do this by making life in the valley so terrible they would have no other choice. Kieth would indicate to him that they had destroyed Tree Hill in order to turn the southern valley into a wasteland, and the only part that hadn't worked properly was the fact that the Orcs hadn't completed the job and were for some reason just sitting in the city of Tree Hill. Kieth would continue and tell him that Forks was next, and that they were planning to spread massive amounts of explosives in the city, and then light them causing the city to be burned down. When Demitri asked him why he was telling him all of this since it was damning things to know Kieth told him that he didn't think he was going to survive the attack as he believed that William was going to get wind and end up killing him. Questioning why this William was such a threat when he was still a boy Kieth would indicate that he was the reborn messiah that would lead the Lucernian people into the uncertain future.
After this Kieth would leave the camp during the night and return to the city where he joined the other Circle of Magi members in making sure that Demitri and his men were able to enter the city. He entered the city, and after sneaking him and his team to the Sky Towers he commanded them to attack a group of merchants near the tower, and thus force several of the guards away from the wall he was intending to climb. His team would be combated by the front defenders of the tower, and this distraction allowed him to walk by the normally guarded western wall of the Tower and slowly make the climb up the side to the first balcony which was on the ninth floor. The climb was extremely dangerous as the tower had been designed so that no one was supposed to be able to scale the sides for fear of this very thing, and on top of this the area around the tower was constantly guarded by hundreds of men at arms especially during that time of day. Despite all of these dangers he slowly made his way up the side of the tower using his personal hidden dagger tool he had purchased from Ravenholdt. After reaching the ninth floor he was able to make his way onto the balcony and prepare the next step of his plan.
Demitri would make his way through the next few levels of the Tower of Clouds until he reached Floor 17 and came nearly face to face with Draco Highmore of whom was making his nightly rounds of the Tower of Clouds. Demitri had been warned about Draco and the fact that there was nothing any of them could do about the patrols of Draco as the man was beyond honor, and because of this he couldn't be dissuaded from defending the family he had become beloved by and towards. Draco Highmore would stop and look around as he felt that he had sensed someone nearby but Demitri was able to hide himself, and then able to make his way up the next few floors until he finally reached floor twenty five where he discovered the bedroom of both Alice, and William Lovie. Finding his target at last he checked Williams room to make sure he was in fact out of the Sky Towers at the time before he made his way into Alice's room to find her asleep in the bed. He would silently move towards her bed admiring for a moment her beauty before he would capture her neck with his hands and waking her up with a squeak but no noise loud enough to wake anyone up.
He was in the middle of strangling her to death when William ran into the room and crashed into Demitri knocking him to the ground. A fight then broke out between William and Demitri, and in this moment Demitri understood in the truest of ways why Bill had said not to confront William as after falling to the ground Demitri would roll away and take out his sword while William would have nothing but his fists. At first Demitri attempted to bargain his way out of the situation, but he feared telling William about the involvement of his father, and thus he simply offered to leave and never return if William would simply back away and let him. William though was never going to be able to allow this man to escape after harming Alice and he made this point perfectly clear as he spoke to Demitri of whom watched as Alice clung to the leg of William. In this uneven battle William would dodge thrust after thrust until finally flinging a book at Demitri's face which in order to dodge Demitri was forced to turn away from him, and when he did William charged him and was able to take the sword from him. William would at this point with Demitri now swordless walk to the wall and grab a sword of which he threw to the ground in front of Demitri and then waited for Demitri to pick it up before he would reengage him. Now with a sword the two would continue to fight but William was an extremely talented dueler and pushed him out of the room before making sure Alice didn't watch what happened next.William would close the door behind him before dragging Demitri to the balcony where Demitri once again attempted to bargain his way out of things, but William was blood crazed at this point and refused to listen to anything he said, and one last time making sure that Alice wasn't watching William would decapitate Demitri and push his body off the balcony. With his adversary dead William returned to Alice's room to find her frantically searching for him, and when she saw him she ran straight into his arms. William would hold Alice as she lost herself in her fear, and sadness, and this would continue until a few minutes later Draco and several guards would enter the hallway to make sure everything was alright now.William wouldn't say a word, and Draco wouldn't make him as he simply picked up Alice and brought her to his room to sleep. Following the incident no one was told and the guards on duty were made to keep it a secret, and thus no one close to them outside of Edward, Levan, Emmeett, and Jasper would know of this attack against Alice. Even though they thought it was kept a secret the failure of Demitri to kill Alice had come to Bill as he was the one that set it in motion, and Draco reluctantly was forced to tell him what had happened despite his misgivings. Draco would be in the room as the Circle of Magi members discussed the failure to kill Alice, and Draco nearly spoke up saying the horror that he was watching unfold in front of him, but instead his loyalty kept him silent, and he kept his mouth shut. Draco would witness Khadgar voice his disgust for what was going on, and it was this that was one of the main reasons that down the road Draco would stand up for Khadgar when he fled the Circle of Magi. Following this William would become even more protective over Alice, and despite the brief attempts by Demitri to reveal that Bill Lovie had commanded the attack William didn't suspect for a moment that his father had attempted to kill Alice, and the only person he did suspect was Sean Lovie as he assumed that perhaps he had done it out of his continued jelousy over his relationship with Alice.
| Britney Hemsworth and William Lovie III. |
Who would have ever imagined she would grow up to be the girl that did the most damage.
Bill Lovie had a loyal messenger in Arnor at the time who sent him the news that the young Britney Hemsworth was now free following the death of her proposed husband in battle. Bill sent letters to King Jonas Hemsworth asking him if her hand was open for his young son William Lovie III., and after a series of back and forth letters Jonas would take this option to his council, and their would little debate among them. It was decided that clearly this was a much better option then most of the other options so Jonas agreed, and Britney was planned to be sent to Lucerne to get to know William so they could make sure it would work. Britney was told about the plan, and she was the studious daughter so she ably agreed that she would do everything necessary to gain the marriage and the hand of the young prince. During the time before she left she was left a list of things that William liked that had been sent by Bill Lovie but unfortunately Bill did not know his son half as well as he thought so the vast majority of these things were innacurate.
As she was leaving she was forced to for the first time accept life without her family of whom had been her rock for most of her life, but she was sent with her handmaiden Ilana La-Phellion of House Phellion. So it would be nothing more then Britney Hemsworth her handmaiden Ilana, and a small party of men at arms to protect them when they went for a trip to a completely foreign land. Also along with her learning she begin taking the name Britney Hemsworth the rough translation of what her Numenorian name became in common germanic.
Arrival in Lucerne
The Journey for Britney was extremely long, but over the time she and her best friend Ilana La-Phellion would be reading up on the history of Lucerne through several books that they had been given by Bill Lovie during his time in Arnor. Through this they learned the history of the Kingdom of Lucerne, but more importantly they learned all there was to know about House Lovie in book learning. During this reading she came to greatly admire her betrothed's name sake in the form of William Lovie of whom she read all about, and the relationship that he had with the dragons. She tried her very best for the situation that awaited her, and no one could have expected any more preparation or thought by a girl that young.
When Britney arrived in Lucerne Bill made sure to use all of his skill to menipulate the young girl into keeping her purpose their a secret. With the element of surprise still with him, he set Britney out on a mission to seduce William, which based on his whorish behavior at the time wasn't difficult. As her sexual ways moved her closer and closer to William she became slowly quite obsessed with the young prince. This obsession had her go to insane lengths to make sure that Andrew was always paying attention to her, and above all else was always enjoying himself with her. She came to learn all the stories that he loved. All the games he loved to play she showed incredible interest in. All the things she could do to show him how much he meant to her she did and she also silently led Andrew down a dark sexual path that led to the conflict that would begin with Alice.
It wasn`t long after beggining with Britney that he begin to tire of the routine of it all. He came to be aware that his father greatly admired young Britney for both her knowledge, and for her kindness and this made him want to rebel from his father by rebelling from his relationship from Britney. Seeing a distance growing between them and the amount of time he spent with her declined she would try a different approach to regain him. Finding him walking through Lucerne Hold with his sister and Draco Highmore she would interject into the conversation to the annoyance of Alice. William found this brave on her part, and the three begin talking and it eventually led down the road of her homeland. William knew about Arnor from school, but he was unaware of the dramatic differences of the north as well as the true scope of what kind of human she was. She told him of the fact that she would not age in anyway, and basically she would look the way she does now for hundreds if not thousands of years. She and Alice would argue the merits of living forever and it was only when Catherine Lovie arrived to take them home for supper that they would depart from the conversation.
Alice Steps In
As Andrew basked in the constant sexual gratification he was getting, his loving sister Alice was becoming very upset about the fall her brother was taking. She confronted Andrew about it, and the two got into a heated argument which ended with Alice walking away, and them not speaking for a time. With his sister's disapointment Andrew began making changes in his life, and Britney could not seem to get him back to where she had him before. She tried everything that had worked before but it was all to no success, of which included an ever darker series of sexual attempts of which continued down a darker path of violence. She finnally attempted to confront Alice herself but this only had the effect of creating even more conflict when Andrew stuck up for his sister.
Confrontation with AliceAlice was in her room when Britney came to the Sky Tower and she was alerted by a gaurd that Britney was on the main floor asking for her. She went to William's room but found that he was gone, so she went by herself downstairs accompanied by Graden Bloomine where she planned to have it out with Britney. When she went downstairs she found that Britney was standing in the open garden next to the tower, and she was clearly upset. As she moved closer Britney noticed her and bolted towards, and after being told to move back from Alice and continueing to yell at her she was restrained by Graden. Now being held by Graden Britney unleashed her anger towards Alice and Alice just stood their as Britney at first became irrationally anger, and then broke down into tears. As she broke into tears Alice saw for the first time the side of Britney that she had never allowed herself to see before. As Alice went to comfort her she was shuffled away by Graden of whom didn't listen to Alice's desire for Britney to remain, and since she would be removed following this fight Alice would never get the chance to. Following this Britney was quietly shuffled out of the city by Bill Lovie who believed she had completely failed. Unknown to Andrew was the fact that he had gotten Britney pregnant during their relationship and she now carried his child. Despite his best attempts at fixing things with Alice he became ever more detatched from the situation and it only got worse when he grew into conflict with Jasper as well over the things that Jasper had been feeling. Alice continued to attempt to get through to Andrew but she found that he was changing in a darker way and she begin to fear for him.
The Corruption of Sean Lovie
Main Article : Duel on the Steps
| The Duel on the Steps |
He was a monster. He needed to be treated like a monster deserved to be treated.
In the early days of his teenage years Sean Lovie continued to feel rejected by the lack of relationship with his brother William, and his father Bill, and as time went by and his loneliness increased this resentment only grew in the heart of Sean Lovie. The only relationship that seemed to have any balance for Sean in his own mind was the one he shared with his sister Alice Lovie. This relationship would come to be the only true relationship that Sean had, and while Sean grew to love Alice in an entirely brotherly way, Alice was hiding a growing fear towards her brother due to the manner in which he begin to act. To the outside world and even to Sean the two appeared close, but for Alice she was hiding the fear deep within herself and refusing to tell anyone about it including her beloved brother William as she feared what William would do to Sean if he knew how lost Sean was truly becoming. Unfortunately as they both aged, Sean's desires for Alice only increased and as he was also becoming increasingly deranged due to a near constant abuse from his father he was very poor at hiding his desires and over the course of time many in the capital began whispering about Sean having unnatural feelings towards Alice. Seeing the growing resentment between Sean and William, and feeling his own resentment towards Alice, Bill began forming a plan to remove Alice of whom he begin to blame for everything wrong in his life. Bills only problem was that Sean had a deep as revealed through time a taboo love for Alice, and this meant that he had great difficulty in turning Sean to his plans of removing Alice through violence. Eventually as he continued to read from the Magi book Myctism Bill progressed in magical power to such an extent that he formulated a potion that once ingested by Sean it would allow Bill Lovie to mold Sean through having a complete control over Sean's emotion. This potion had been designed by Bill to increase the level of violence, and hate within the heart of Sean and realizing that Alice was the person that Sean thought the most of he believed it would lead to a violent encounter between Sean and Alice, but what Bill did not take into account for was the fact that Sean already harbored some very dark thought's and so while working by increasing his violent thoughts it also caused Sean to become nearly completely unhinged.Bill Lovie watched him the entire time that he basically lost himself in his madness, and during this time he used his power to make Sean and Alice be around each other as much as possible and in order to protect William he forced William on a trip to Nortburg which kept him away during the madness of Sean. As per the potions effect Sean felt a massive pull to kill Alice, and eventually no matter how hard he tried to resist hurting the one thing he truly loved eventually the pull for violence became too much. He stalked her for days each night he found it more and more difficult to resist the pull he felt to kill her, but each night he used the massive amount of love he had for Alice in order to not kill her. As the days went by and he continued to not kill Alice Bill would begin to pick fights with him and have other guards insulting him which would lead to Sean having a breakdown which caused him to go to a local brothel, and followed in this movement by Carlisle Cullen, and Kieth Schwartz he would sit in the brothel stewing in violent thoughts but still unwilling to go across the moral line, and it was at this point that Kieth Schwartz would push him over when Kieth paid one of the whores at the brothel a large amount of gold to seduce Sean and then be rough with him during the time together. Kieth would on short notice set up the two to be able to come back to what she was forced to say was her place but in fact was nothing more then an abandoned home in Lucerne Proper, and everything was prepared in the house to have Sean murder the whore and hopefully for Keith push Sean over the edge. The prostitute would seduce Sean through the help of Carlisle Cullen of whom advised her to call herself Alice and upon this happening Sean would follow her back to her home where he tried to be gentle with her but believing he wanted things rough due to the manipulation of Kieth Schwartz she would be rough which escalated the violence and Sean would let out his pent up anger and murdered the girl brutally. Feeling that one kill would not be quite enough Kieth Schwartz would have his brother Fadril Schwartz bring a girl from the same brothel to the house where she too was paid a large sum of money and then was let into the house by Fadril directly after the murder of the first girl by Sean and seeing what had happened the girl tried to run but found the door blocked by Fadril, and Sean now completely unhinged would kill her too. Waking up the next morning to find the two girls dead and knowing exactly what he had done Sean's moral compass was destroyed and over the next two days he would kill two other girls before becoming obsessed with having more violence and extending what he was enjoying.
Testing the Limits
As Sean Lovie was escalating it would be his interaction with Ellen Page that would completely push him over the edge and lead to his first true demise. Ellen Page would join her family during an attempt by her father to meet the king and when she did she stepped right into the lions den when she was seen by Sean Lovie as she walked with her parents and two brothers. Something about her called to Sean and he begin stalking her for days after this chance meeting and he finally caught her when she went south of Lucerne to a vineyard with two guards of House Page. Watching them from afar Sean was overcome with rage that she had been accompanied by guards and thus he moved ahead of the group and set traps for them as they passed the road. One of the guards stepped on a trap immobilizing him, and when the other guard went to help him Sean was able to secure her after he went about killing the two guards. Stabbing them repeatedly to death would allow Ellen to briefly escape but he chased her down, and then knocked her out allowing him to kidnap her and take her to a forest cave he had turned into his home base, and there he prepared to torture her for hours.While being nearly continuously raped by the monster, she never allowed Sean to see her fear, and throughout would recite the words of the Dragon of which caused Sean immense rage. Most of this was unseen by Sean though, and when it finally ended he was preparing to kill her when he found her eyes still without fear and her saying Dragonoph prayers and all of this made him hate her to the point that he he planned to break her. At first Sean took this as a challenge and each time he returned to her he attempted to up the ante in the belief that he could simply frighten her into giving him what he wanted. As his attempts failed time after time, he found his control slipping more and more, and only the desire to defeat her resistance kept her alive. Michael Cera would become a close friend.
The Spark of Madness
It was late at night when Sean returned from his failure with Ellen Page, and looking for his sister he saw Alice walking the balcony of her room in nothing but her nightgown, and seeing her in this sexualized position was too much for him and he charged through her door and attempted to rape her. The two scuffled for a time, and the noise they made during their fight woke William of whom Sean hadn't even checked to see if he was home in his madness induced rage, and coming to the sounds William charged into the room. Seeing the situation and now no longer able to pretend his brother wasn't a monster William quickly beat Sean, and unable to accept that he had hurt Alice, William started to kill Sean by strangling him. As he was strangling Sean it was Alice that put her hand on his shoulder and whispered for him to stop. Every ounce of his soul wanted to kill his brother in that moment but he looked to Alice and saw tears streaming down her face, and he couldn't bear to add more pain to her, and thus grudgingly William Lovie III. did stop and Sean ran out of the room. William would hold Alice tight as by this point guards had entered the situation, and Bill came to room feigning confusion over what had happened but quickly in order to keep the support of William he commanded Draco Highmore to put Sean in chains and lock him in the bottom of the tower. It was in this moment that Bill saw his daughter in a different light then he had ever seen her before, but the voices in his head would keep him from revealing anything real to his children and he would eventually leave without honesty.
William would stay with Alice the entire night letting her sleep in his bed for the night to keep her calm, and then in the morning his aunt Catherine Bell arrived at the tower at his request and watched over her as William needed to deal with Sean. Leaving Alice crying with his aunt William told Hayden Percy to take him to Sean, and Draco would tell him that this wasn't the time and that judging from what just happened Bill wouldn't want him to do that. William would upon his failure to convince Hayden attempt to convince Draco, but despite Draco wanting to do this he was hamstrung by his honor to the king of Lucerne. William would let it rest for a night because even in his hatred and anger towards his brother he knew that the beautiful sister that he loved so deeply needed him more then his vengeance. Returning to Alice she fell into his arms as soon as she saw him, and Catherine left them to go and find her brother and try to learn more, and the rest of the day the two would talk, and Alice would tell William yet again how much she wanted their father to just reach out and say something to her. Alice was very open to revealing that even indifference would be preferable to the way he treated her now, and this feeling only made William hate his father more.
William knew that Sean would just try this again so he decided that he needed to so greatly shame Sean that he would leave the city. Speaking to Jasper Hale, and Emmett McCarty about what had happened they would come up with idea of him challenging Sean and following through on this William went to the town crier the next morning and sent out a decree for Sean to duel him the next day. William never believed Sean would show up considering how skilled with a blade that William was, and the fact that Sean had little to no skill at the art of battle. But when the day did come he stood on the steps of Lucerne surrounded by a massive crowd, and saw Sean walking down the road towards him wearing the armor that he remembered had been given to Sean by Maron Scorpian as a gift on his twelfth birthday. As Sean walked towards him with a look of pure fear in his eyes Alice begged William to not give Sean the gratification that this fight would give him. She knew that for Sean the hatred of William meant that he was probably willing to give up his life so that William would have to carry the title of kin slayer around with him for the rest of his life. William wanted to listen to his sister but when he saw the scarf on her neck he remembered the fear he had that his sister was dead or raped and could not. Sean and William would argue for several minutes discussing all the things that had went wrong between the two, and after Sean continued making sexual comments about Alice William exploded on him and the fight went basically as everyone had assumed it would as William and his vastly superior fighting skills brutalized Sean throughout the fight eventually knocking him to the ground. Despite being beaten quite badly and bleeding from cuts on his face Sean would charge forward grabbing a sword from a guard and threatening to kill William, but would be stopped when William got under his guard and knocked the sword away before Sean would trip and fall down the steps hitting his head.
In the aftermath of the fight between William and Sean, Alice was visited by Bill Lovie, and in this meeting he set out exactly the future for Alice as by this point Bill Lovie came to understand that there was no relationship possible between himself and William as long as Alice was in the picture. After telling her father that she was sorry any of this happened he proceeded to charge her and beat her quite badly. After several minutes he stopped and realized the extent of what he'd done. Her father threatened to kill William if Alice told William about the beating by him - an obvious bluff since nothing was more important to Bill then the uplifting of his prized heir - and this threat shocked Alice to her core. In fear that Bill might kill William, Alice lied to him about how she was beaten up, and was forced to continue the lie two months later when he attacked her again. After the second time she threatened Bill that she was going to tell William, and that he would kill Bill. In that moment Alice's fate was sealed, and Bill went about creating the spell that would remove Alice from the memory of all who knew her.
The End of Alice Lovie
| The End of Alice Lovie |
There is an ache in my heart father, and I don't know how to fix this pain. Tell me what is wrong. Tell me why I feel like I've lost everything. Tell me what is wrong with me.
The beginning of the end of Alice came in the days preceding the casting of the spell, and during this time the Circle of Magi would travel across Lucerne placing wards that would limit the scope of the spell, and the people affected by its actions. Knowing that the Magi users of Lucerne were divided and he controlled the only organized Magi users he knew he could escape notice, and thus moved to set the first of the runes in place in William's room. As Bill was going to do this it was Amber Heard that was waiting in his room for him to return when she had a truly horrifying encounter with Bill Lovie of whom came into William's room and at first he didn't see her in the room so he had a perfect almost molded smile on his face. He walked around William's room for many minutes simply speaking out loud in some sort of chant like speech that she couldn't understand but for some reason the tone in his words scared her directly to her core. He continued to chant and then abruptly stopped before sitting on his bed for a second before he chanted again and then laid down on the bed. She watched from the corner as the King of Lucerne appeared to be in some sort of stupor, and something about the change in him as time went on told her that for her sake he had best not see her, so while he laid there she moved the blanket she was under farther up her body so that it completely covered her.
He would continue to chant, and then as this continued a cloaked man (Khadgar) walked in carrying a stone and she looked him dead in the eyes and he saw her, but he didn't say anything and just passed the stone to Bill before giving her one last look before leaving the room. Bill would go to his knees and begin praying before the stone, and as this went on it begin to glow blue, and then disappeared into nothing, and despite this Bill continued to kneel down praying. He eventually got up when Carlisle Cullen walked into the room and told him that William was returning, and in that moment he simply got up without a word and left the room. She sat motionless in the corner still covered by the blanket as William walked into the room, and unlike his father William immediately saw her in the corner, and went to her and embraced her in a tight hug. He held her close as if he somehow understood what had happened to her, and as she cried into his shoulder she fell so deeply in love with the boy holding her that she simply held him close for what might have been hours. William would leave the room to say goodnight to Alice, and Amber was hell bent on telling him what had happened the moment he returned, but a moment after he left the door to his room reopened and Carlisle came inside. Carlisle would confront her on telling William as he lied to her that in truth Carlisle was leading a rebellious movement in the land, and was just waiting for this moment to strike. Amber would tell Carlisle that he had a day to get his affairs in order before she would tell William, and Carlisle knowing the spell was being cast the next day would agree to the offer, and when William returned Amber didn't tell him.
With the secret kept due to the lies of Carlisle Cullen the Circle of Magi would come together in summoning the spell, while Bill Lovie stood at the top of the Cloud Tower and focused the spell itself. In a moment that would change the fabric of Lucerne, and most dangerously would completely shatter both Sean, and William Lovie their father Bill completed his spell that would erase Alice from the world. As the spell finished, and there was nothing that could stop it from enacting itself Bill was overcome by his hatred of Alice, and in a fit of blind rage ran into Alice's room in the middle of the night and laughed at her because he was about to remove her from William's memory. For a moment Alice wanted to run and get William but still the fear of his death was too much for her to bear, and so she remained calm as her father verbally attacked her. After exhausting himself screaming at Alice he was interrupted by Draco Highmore of whom came at the sound of the screaming, but was sent away on the command of Bill. For a single moment Draco looked to Alice as he had enough of looking the other way, but she wiped the tears from her face and nodded that he shouldn't do anything. As Bill left Draco would return but as he attempted to comfort her she commanded him away, and ran to Williams room where she buried her head in his pillow. Alice then spent the rest of the night waiting for her beloved brother to return home but he was out with Amber Heard and he didn't return until nearly the morning and when he went into her room to check on her, he found her cradling the doll that he had given her as a child and dried tears running down her face. The site broke his heart and he laid down beside her and held her close as he too fell asleep. Bill Lovie would enter her room in the morning to find his two children knocked out by the power of his spell but even in that moment his arms were wrapped protectively around her, and he had to get Carlisle to come in and assist him in releasing Andrew's grip on her. But his grip was released and they put Alice into a sack, and put her into a wagon where she was to be brought to rest in Forks and then dumped on the side of the road.
Alice Lovie was dropped off at the outskirts of Forks by Bill Lovie's cronie Kieth Schwartz following her going into a coma following the spell. Bill Lovie's loyal knight Caius Elvorix III. would convinse his brother Flavius Elvorix II. of the purpose in joining the Circle of Magi and while Flavius would not officially join he would work for them when he would murder the owner of a tavern in Forks taking control of the tavern himself and there in giving there plotting the location to dump Alice while they planned on her future. Through this work Bill had set her up with a job in Forks, at that local tavern - he silently hoped she would be killed while working there - and on top of this he created back stories for her where in her parents were killed, and she had left Lucerne because of this. While William had yet to wake from his transformation she was made to wake easier by the fact that she had been beaten while asleep by the inscreasingly insane form of her father Bill Lovie. When Alice awoke in her small room on the ground on the side of the road her head was in horrible pain, and so debilitating was the pain that she was unable to move for almost two days. She just barely managed to pull herself into the ditch at the side of the road which saved her from being run over by the constant wagons that crossed the roads. When she was finally able to move she went towards the city where she could find things in her mind that told her she worked at a local tavern. When she arrived the tavern owner who had been paid by Bill Lovie went about punishing her for her lateness, and then on Bill's orders prepared to make her life a living hell. As Alice was broken in spirit and mind by the departure from Lucerne and her beloved brother she was not alone in this feeling as back in Lucerne her brother William would suffer deeply as a result of her departure.
While Alice had woken early the same day of the spell being cast, William had not woken over the entirety of the day, and had to be watched by Carlisle and Bill of whom by this point were growing more worried about why he hadn't grown up. As hours passed without him waking Bill begin to scream that Alice needed to be killed, and that was the reason he hadn't woken but this was ignored as his more evil of lackeys were away and those near were loyalists to the Kingdom. That night Amber would arrive at the Cloud Towers to try and find William, as she had discovered she was pregnant, but when she arrived she was told that William wasn't seeing visitors, and she was forced to leave. Bill commanded the Cloud Tower to be locked down, and thus they continued to send Amber, and then the Shadow Council away, but on the third day Draco Highmore would secretly tell Jasper that William had slipped into a coma.
The Shadow Council, and Amber Heard II. would enter the Cloud Tower using the help of Draco Highmore of whom risked his life in his desperation that perhaps the return of his friends and Amber Heard would force him awake. Leven, and Amber would collapse emotionally into his arms as he lay on the bed, as he was bedrock for the two emotionally, and both loved him, and eventually the group was discovered by Bill of whom summoned Draco to see him. Draco would go to the King assuming he would be killed, but instead Bill wanted to use this as a chance to get the information out about his son's coma, and he planned to blame the affair on some of the more rebellious elements within the Kingdom including the Swan's, and Starke's. As it was discovered that William was in a coma the entire Kingdom went into hysterics as the silent hope of the Kingdom was that when William came of age he would save them from the madness of his father, but with his demise that hope was slipping through their fingers. Thousands begin flocking to the Sky Towers to pray for his return, and all attempts to disperse the crowds ended with failure.
During this coma Amber remained by his side the entire time, as she had realized only two days before his coma that she was pregnant with his child. During this time Jasper, Dylan, Leven, and Emmett attempted to stay in the room as well all camping out for several nights before Bill Lovie had them all sent away with his Circle of Magi guards except for Amber of whom he believed perhaps could rouse William due to his affection for her. When Amber's presence didn't wake William Bill came to blame her for the coma his son was in, and in this way he began threatening her on a daily basis. At first it was completely shocking and Amber didn't know what to do but eventually he started to become violent and she pleaded with him to stop. The end came when he entered the room with a knife and threatened to kill William if Amber didn't leave the city. Following this confrontation he left her to be with William knowing he had shaken her to the core, and during the night she spent one last night at his side.
The next morning before Bill had returned to send her away for good Catherine Lovie came to his room to see both William, and Amber, and during this time the two would hold each other and she begged Amber to leave as she had heard through her own spies that Bill was preparing to have her killed. When Amber told Catherine that Bill had threatened William's life she was shocked beyond anything as Catherine had believed that William was the one piece on the board that he would never risk damaging, and realizing William was threatened the two understood that Amber needed to leave, and she loved him so deeply that she couldn't bear the thought of his death and she agreed to flee the city.
William, and Alice Awaken
It was as William continued to not wake and the departure of Amber Heard II. alongside the banishment of the Shadow Council that the only sane remaining member of the Circle of Magi in the form of Khadgar would decide to take matters into his own hands. Khadgar would sneak into the room of William and finding Bill passed out in the corner he would silently take the blue stone from Bill Lovie of which kept the world from remembering Alice Lovie, and he would damage it slightly causing the spell to weaken somewhat. The following day with the spell releasing somewhat to the point that the two siblings would begin to dream of each other it begin to spark an awakening of William, and Alice which led to the two waking up three days after Khadgar damaged the blue stone.
See Also : Alistair Irons
Following his coma he would be clearly lost without Alice though he didn't know that it was her loss that troubled him, and in this way his father would bring in Alistair Irons of his loyalist House Irons who he thought would put Andrew back into line with what he was before. When Alistair arrived he attempted to at first get a lay of what was happening by talking to people around the young prince of which the principle person he spoke to was Draco Highmore of whom told him of how skilled in every way the young prince was but for whatever reason he couldn't put it all together. Alistair watched the young prince from afar as he spent all his time with the group he called the shadow Council, and when he wasn't with them he was constantly finding different girls to spend his nights with. When he finally approached the young prince the two would have the following exchange.
Following this exchange William would have a silent respect for Alistair Irons of whom would take him south of the city to the House Lovie esate alongside his Shadow Council for an entire month. During this time he would teach the young prince about what it truly meant to be a leader. He was finally able to get through to him that he needed to step forward and start actually making things better instead of just talking about theoretical changes he might make or believed would work if he made them. Alistair would take the four of them along with Levan Martell back to Lucerne where he made them understand that they needed to stick together no matter what, and that only they could make sure that they were all the people they needed to be. So instead of turning William back into the playboy prince that his father had wanted returned Alistair was able to reinjuvinate the young prince into rebecoming the man his sister always thought he could become.

Lucernian Invasion of Gondor
Main Article : Gondor War with Stormwind
| Gondor War with Stormwind |
One day you men will look back and ask yourself what the hell you did here. You attacked us while were fighting monsters. So much for the honor of the Dragons.
The Stormwind war against Gondor begin after Bill Lovie ordered the forces of House Starke and House Lannister to make conflict with the western side of Gondor. The initial talk was sent from Bill Lovie to the Lannisters and Starke and told them that the region of Rhunian was to be in Lucernian hands, and that they needed to do anything possible to take it, but also Bill Lovie made a specific point to say that Gondor was stretched very thin and wouldn't have the numbers necessarily to actually resist the Lucernian advance. The army of Gondor was spread so thin due to the fact that King Aragorn Elessar around the time Bill Lovie ordered the assault was mobilizing the army of Gondor to move to Ethring where the forces of Umbar were preparing to attack the city. Rhunian thus would have only its own forces, and a small amount of reserves from Gondor to defend it if the Lucernians attacked the land. When the Starke's did little more then send small outriders against northern Rhunian, and a contingent of Mormont men from Bear Island it was left to the Lannisters to actually instigate the conflict. Tywin, and Tygett Lannister would send hundreds of cavalry into central Rhunian against the villages along the border, and proceeded to ransack and pillage the entire area until finally Gondor sent warnings about war if this continued. But the Lannisters were commanded by Bill Lovie not to stop, and thus they sacked two larger villages on the western border leaving them to ruin, and forcing thousands to flee eastward. With this the Starke's realized war was upon them no matter what they wanted, and they massed all their vassals into the area now known as Arathor and prepared to attack into Central Rhunian and upwards, while the Lannisters already had mobilized were preparing to attack southern Rhunian, and upwards from there. It was this point that Bill Lovie would send forces from his own Circle of Magi of whom led by Kieth Schwartz, and accompanied by men from House Lerman under the command of Faedra Lerman, and Logan Lerman and these forces were sent to watch over the leadership of House Starke of whom Bill Lovie was beginning to no longer trust, but needed proof of this.Following this the conflict escaled very quickly when despite the conflicts on the eastern half of their Kingdom the forces of Gondor moved significant forces to the western half against the forces of Stormwind. During this escalation the forces of House Lannister, and House Starke moved increasingly to the front, with both sides employing different strategies. House Lannister and its forces moved against the large Gondor town of Langstrand which they quickly surrounded with forces, and moved a smaller force of more elite irregular troops led by many of their more elite forces to harass the lands around the Gondor town of Adrahil where the main thrust of House Starke was moving against. The strategy of House Starke though was for their forces to thrust against the large town of Adrahil, while there forces then moved against the villages north of Adrahil in an attempt to draw the Gondor soldiers into pitched battles that worked against them. They would be led by Eddard Starke, and Brandon Starke of which the two brothers would lead the siege of Adrahil. This strategy worked with both the forces assisted by a small detatchment sent from House Ordos. House Ordos sent an elite force of siege experts that assisted with both the siege of Langstrand, and Adrahil with both logistics and leadership for goals of the sieges. On the other side of the conflict was the defenders of Gondor of whom were led by Eldarion Elessar, his brother Ildarion, and their uncle Halbaard Elessar. The conflict in the east was dire, and thus Gondor was forced to rely on the two princes, and the forces they brought were relatively weak auxillary forces from south western Gondor, and not the more battle hardened eastern troops. The forces of Gondor were obviously relying mainly on defenders made up of the forces of the two major towns Adrahil, and Langstrand and because of this they were in a lot of trouble when it came to the massive forces being brought to bear by Stormwind, and House Ordos. The northern town of Adrahil was led by the two sons of the King, while Lanstrand was held by Halbaard Elessar making for serious leadership in the two towns.
It would be at this time that Liana Beyne would be nearly completely in love with Philip Prester by the time the two were fourteen and it was this love that led Philip to take drastic actions when his father sent him word about the invasion of Rhuthian. The word came in the form of several pages, and a hedge knight in the form of Tristen of Feastfires of whom would take Philip aside and tell him he needed to come with them as the attack on Rhuthian was weeks away. Learning this he would in the dead of night sneak away from the sleeping Tristen of Feastfires and go to Liana's father Menagil Beyne of whom would asseble his family after hearing what Philip had to say, and would put complete faith in the young Philip Prester when he handed him over his two daughters for protection, and with only supplies and horses he sent them away from Castle Beyne for the west. Tristen of Feastfires would awaken and realizing quickly what had happened left the castle with little resistance from House Beyne of whom was happy to have him and his two squires gone. Philip would reach the Gondorian port town of Leghland where they found passage to Lucerne where shortly after arriving on shore they found a large encampment of Lucernian forces carrying the banner of House Starke. Going into the camp of House Starke Philip Prester would present himself to the Starke leadership of whom listened to him as he was the heir to a powerful house, and they would do the honorable thing when they sent him northward with Liana and Vellia to Winterfell. As the conflict neared its beginning his presence in Winterfell would become known when Tristen of Feastfires finally found his trail after weeks of looking, and would lie saying Tywin Lannister himself had summoned Philip, and with this command in place Philip would tearfully say goodbye for a time to Liana Beyne while travelling with Tristen to the forces of House Prester.
House LannisterHouse Lannister moved their main army straight out of Lannistane alongside all of their vassals, and other houses and moved directly towards Langstrand. The Lannisters were led by Tywin Lannister of whom took complete charge of the siege of Langstrand, and then he sent his family members to take control of the various villages, and castles nearbye. The defenders of Langstrand were offered quarter, but refused under the command of Haalbrad and demanded the Lucernians leave their lands or else face the consequences. The defenders were outnumbered, but Langstrand sat on the edge of water, and the river bed was shielded by cliffs which meant they could get some supplies inside, thus making the siege even longer. When he was given word that Ildarion Elessar had fled Adrahil and was moving south he sent his most trusted commander in his son Jaime Lannister north to chase him down with most of the heavy cavalry and the entire force of House Reyne that had come with House Lannister. Jaime Lannister would move quickly north, but was very careful to move his large force out of sight of any force that they saw and through this strategy he moved undetected through Gondor and begin stalking Ildarion Elessar and his force so that he could capture the prince before the Starke's got him. Jaime got close to Ildarion Elessar twice but both times Ildarion was able to meneaver himself away from the forces of Jaime Lannister, and escape. Either way the forces of Ildarion were basically reduced to running around for nearly a month as they were chased by Jaime Lannister and this left them unable to take part in any actual fighting.
While Jaime was searching for Ildarion Elessar his brother in Tyrion Lannister moved throughout the region between around Langstrand with a largely weakly equipped ground force and begin capturing the various castles, and forts that dotted this region. These forts, and castles were far weaker then they had ever been because the west was seen by Gondor as the area that they least needed to be worried about. Despite this though Tyrion had to deal with each of these defences of which the largest was the fort of Amon Hen of which was defended by six hundred men of Gondor and was perched on a cliff overlooking the valley around it. Tyrion would use great skill in traversing the valley around the fort which allowed him to sneak his forces to the depths surrounding the fort. The forces of Gondor in many places fought to the last man, but were clearly given some orders for larger garrisons to surrender and save their lives. In Amon Hen the defenders lost some three hundred troops in the suprise attack, but still held on for hours before they surrendered and were sent westward as prisoners. With Tyrion sacking castle after castle he finally had managed to block the eastern river approach into Langstrand thus closing the city off from supplies by the water, and thus making starving them out once more an option.
Theon Greyjoy joined Robb Starke in a raiding party that was basically meant to harass, and capture large tracts of land in the hopes of getting the Gondorians to leave their fortifications and walk into traps north of Adrahil. While they did this Jon Snow led a smaller group of heavy cavalry against the villages of this area, and he slowly but surely became a sort of vangaurd for the larger cavalry force of Theon, and Robb. At this point with fighting breaking out all over the region the main army of Eddard Starke supported by House Baratheon and some logistics sent by House Ordos moved against the town of Adrahil and put the town completely under siege. Before they could get the entire town under siege though one of the brothers in Ildarion left the city from the west with a large force of heavy, and light cavalry and made his way south to defend Langstrad where the the city was more capable of falling quickly. With Adrahil under siege and the objective of starving the town out until it surrendered Eddard gave the command to begin the heavy harrasment in the north. House Mormont and the Bear Island troops would capture nearly all the mines, and livestock of the area and bring it westward, while the other Bear Island troops ransacked northern Rhunian and took the spoils into Lucerne. While this was happening the forces of House Tarly of whom commanded a large force would move eastward towards Lamedon, where they would arrive and thus block off the ability of Gondor to send any kind of supplies or reinforcements into the area. Randyll Tarly would hold two castles west of Lamedon, and despite attempts by the Lamedon troops to dislodge him, he was a master tactision and was unable to be removed.
Theon and Robb would command together a force of cavalary of which they used brilliantly and after raiding the village of Meadow's Grove they noticed a rather large group of Gondor soilders marching eastward and they immediatly begin following the group. After a full day of marching the Gondor forces set up camp inside a forest and they believed they had the night to rest before marching again. This was a large mistake, and the forces of Theon and Robb moved quickly to surround the camp. While they surrounded the camp the forces of Jon Snow moved against the only real chance of the Gondor force to be saved when they moved against a cavalry force led by one of the local commanders. In the coming Raid on Groilline Jon Snow would discover that Ildarion was with that camped force, and would send word to Robb about this, while Jamie Lannister was not told or made aware of any changes.
Raid on Groiline
During the days of the war with Gondor, Jon Snow was tasked with a small unit of troops that he was tasked with raiding the northern farmlands in order to draw out the outstretched Gondor forces into the trap of the army of House Lannister, and House Starke. In Jon's role he would become aware of how outstretched the Gondor forces were when he chased a force of Gondor cavalry through the night and as he passed by the village of Groiline his scouts reported no defenders. His scouts informed him that the cavalry had no intention of stopping as they were moving eastwards towards Prince Ildarion of whom was being shadowed by both Robb Starke, and Jaime Lannister. Seeing this as an oppurtunity he would stop chasing the cavalry and would instead move his force to Groiline and capture the village, thus unknown to Ildarion Elessar and his forces the road west was free for them to go back through, but without knowing that they made camp that nigh with no knowledge they were trapped on all sides except one.
Chasing Illdarion ElessarAs Jamie Lannister made his way north his scouts were constantly scanning the woods, and the villages that they moved through, and around in the guise of finding Ildarion. As this continued they reached just east of Castle Beyne when they caught the scent of Ildarion as he was travelling north of the castle fighting a running battle against a House Starke cavalry force. His scouts reported to him that the forces of House Starke that were involved were those of his rival in Robb Starke so he moved quicker then he wanted to in order to catch Ildarion. As he moved with less stealth now his force was noticed by a local garrison of whom was led by the able commander Aegnor Tal-Villion of whom begin shadowing the larger Lannister force. Aegnor was a Numenorian just like his friend Ildarion Ellessar and knew the importance of his prince, and thus he made the decision to stop Jame Lannister by whatever means necessary. Aegnor quickly realized as he followed Jamie's forces that Jamie was attempting to harry his prince, and thus Aegnor prepared most of his men for the defence of their fort, while he and a company fifty cavalry begin to harass the rear echolon of the Jaime Lannister force. Jaime
Ambush at Meadow's GroveBefore Jon Snow had moved against the village of Goiline he had sent a raven scout northwest towards where he believed his brother to be with the information that he had Ildarion surrounded from the north, while Jaime Lannister was in the south blocking that route, and a force of cavalry was coming from the west to alert the Ildarion force of their predicament. Realizing they had to stop the cavalry force Robb Starke ordered a bold move when he moved his entire force south west into the path of the cavalry. His force would get off their horses and quickly prepare and ambush for the force of maybe fifteen cavalry, and when the force arrived they quickly saw they were in a lot of trouble so they surrendered with only two casualties of whom had attempted to flee. Robb's force would quickly gain the information from the cavalry about where the prince was precisely located, and with this information they were sent to the rear lines by some of the men, and the rest of the force moved towards the force of Ildarion. With no hope of relief, or any new information they knew they had Ildarion this night if they worked this well. Theon, and Robb's forces moved silently in the night and proceeded to take out the scouts that had been posted to watch for just this event. With the scouts taken out the forces moved into the camp, and went tent to tent killing the nearly 300 strong Gondor force. Quickly into the attack the Gondorians woke up on mass after a large death scream, and combat raged across the camp with the House Starke force vastly outnumbering the Gondorians and completely surrounded and without their equipment on. The force had been chased by Jamie Lannister for well over a month, and due to House Tarly closing the supplies they were not able to be releived as often, and thus for all of these reasons by the time they were now in battle they were no longer even capable of fighting. After only a few minutes the Gondorians begin to surrender, and it was during this end of the fighting that Robb Starke noticed that one of the fighters who had remained fighting was Ildarion Elessar the son of the King of Gondor.
Robb immediatly engaged him in combat and on his own velition was able to defeat him only because he could tell that Ildarion was half dead from fatigue, and being unequipped with armor, or a shield. When Ildarion fell defeated the rest of the Gondor force was swiftly throwing down their weapons and surrendering leaving the full Starke force with a nearly complete victory. With Ildarion defeated Robb was egged on by Theon to kill him, and for a moment Robb contimplated listening to his friend but he then thought strategically and realized that if they had the prince they could basically ransom whatever they wanted from the Gondorians. With this in mind Robb decided instead of killing him he would instead take him in as a prisoner, and ordered the force to pull back to their original position with their now sixty prisoners along with the prince of Gondor.
Robb Starke would pull his force back behind the lines, and there would set up a camp for all the prisoners they had captured and then sent word to his father about the capture of Ildarion, which would then spread like wildfire. When Eddard heard of this news he sent word to Eldarion in Adrahil of whom then sent word to Aragorn of this change in events. Aragorn had two options in front of him. The first option was to engage the Lucernians in a full pitched battle which he might lose, and if he didn't lose he would most likely lose on the east because of all the causualites. Or he surrendered most of the Gondor lands west of the River Rhine. In the end he would send word to Eldarion that their forces were going to surrender under the terms that all Gondor citizens, and forces be allowed free pass into Gondor, along with the return of Ildarion, and all prisoners. Bill Lovie would send word to Eddard that he was incoming to the camp that Eddard and Tywin Lannister were meeting, but when the letter came the servent that brought it told them that Bill planned to execute Ildarion on the spot.
Both commanders understood that if they did this it would mean all out war which was stupid since they could have all of this land with no bloodshed. Because of this they hid the note, and told the scout that the prisoners were already in transfer back to Gondor. With this information Bill Lovie would return to Lucerne instead of seeing the two Lords, and they both knew they had made an enemy that day. When this happened Ildarion was given word by Robb Starke that he was to be released along with all of his men. The two would discuss the coming world that they both lived in, and Robb Starke would gain a lot of respect for Ildarion, and the same would be true of Ildarion for Robb Starke.

Father it is time. You must come with us. This is the only way the Kingdom can ever truly heal.
Removing the Old King
As William Lovie III. moved back towards Lucerne following the victory at Tree HIll it would be Janos Flynt that was in a position that was only a step beneath his brother Tavin Flynt of whom was running the city watch as the commander. On the days following the liberation of Tree Hill news begin to filter into the city that William Lovie III. was on his way to Lucerne and was planning on removing his father from power. While during this time Bill Lovie made no effort to control the city watch so that they would defend the city, his young son Sean Lovie did attempt to stop his entry. The liberation of Tree Hill was the moment that Sean Lovie understood that William would return to Lucerne and attempt to remove his father, and most likely kill him as by this point there was no scenario where William couldn't have known the truth of what happened at Tree Hill. This wasn't something Sean could allow so he begin ordering the guards of the city to prepare the defenses of the city in order to make sure that william had no way of entering the city. He mainly was giving these orders to Tavin Flynt of whom had always retained the belief that he was loyal to House Lovie first and then the Kingdom thus he made the choice to stand beside Sean Lovie, and Bill Lovie. This decision was met with rumblings throughout the city watch as most wanted William to be victorious but his control over the top echelons was powerful, and most believed he had the support of his brother Janos Flynt of whom was the most influential member of the city watch. Following the arrival of the raven by declaring the victory of William Lovie III. it would be Bill Lovie that would recall his niece Michelle Trachtenberg to the Sky Towers and would take out all of his anger on the poor depressed young girl, and following his attack of Michelle he would exile her to Whitehaven Castle and reveal this to no one outside of his closest confidents.
Wedding of Bella, and William
While William was unknowingly to Alice engaging in a sexual relationship with Brooke Scott in Tree Hill it would be Alice that was pushing forward with plans for the wedding of William Lovie III. and her best friend Bella Swan. William would departs Tree Hill planning to go to Forks and reveal the truth to Bella but after he arrived at Forks he was met first by his sister, and Alice would be so excited that despite not wanting to marry Bella anymore he is unable to disappoint his sister of whom loves Bella deeply, and he goes through with the wedding despite everything in him wanting Brooke more. Trying to delay the wedding William is at first successful and the army of Lucerne prepares to leave for the capital but this is delayed when Bella reveals that she is pregnant basically forcing William to marry her in order to keep from having a bastard. Thus due to the pregnancy Alice is able to delay the departure of William in order to have the wedding before he arrives in Lucerne, and thus join House Swan and House Lovie together before he leaves for Lucerne. During the wedding itself Alice watches him lie during the Vow to protect and love her for the rest of his days and following this while everyone else is screaming in excitement Alice is in a fog of which is noticed by Edward Cullen of whom holds her hand and walks with her out of the ceremony as they follow William and Bella who now married are heading towards the wedding feast. Following the ceremony she walks out and sees Lanna Lannister talking with Jasper Hale of whom is gently rubbing her arm, and following this she looks for Dylan Steinmare of whom she finds and takes him away from the party and kisses him. As they become more heated she pulls away leaving him behind, and returning to the party where she takes her seat beside William of whom holds her hand as several prominent members of the Kingdom of Lucerne say nice things about the married couple.
Entering the CityFollowing the wedding of Bella Swan, and William Lovie III. the situation deterioted even further as they were only a few days away from Lucerne but had a truly massive army with the entire Grand State of Forks behind him following the marriage. Janos Flynt had the support of the vast majority of the city watch when he approached his brother with the idea of doing what was right and allowing William Lovie into the city. As William was one day away from Lucerne Janos Flynt would approach his brother and attempt to talk him out of his decision, but where Janos expected that his brother would listen to his advise and everything would be fine but instead Tavin discussed how he was preparing under the orders of Sean to not only bar entrance but to first allow Willim into the tunnel where they would kill him and anyone else in the tunnel at the time. Hearing this was too much for Janos of whom begged his brother to not be insane and think of the entire Kingdom but Tavin refused him and enraged that his brother had seemingly turned on him he called on men of his guard to arrest Janos for treason, and when he did this Janos realized that there wasn't going to be any convincing him, so before he was put under arrest from the guards he unsheathed his sword and slashed his brother across the neck killing him almost instantly. At the death of Tavin the guards stood down and basically switched loyalties almost immediately, and as Janos had been the second most powerful within the City Watch he was able to cover up the death of Tavin for a time while he moved on to making sure the Watch followed his commands. Following this Janos would go throughout the various city watch commanders and make sure everyone was with him, and when he was sure they were he gave the command for William to be allowed into the city. William would enter through the vast gates of Lucerne alongside his force, and Sean Lovie would watch from the first gate as his brother approached a position he believed was blocked to him. Sean ran to the city watch command and demanded to see Tavin, but found information that Tavin had been murdered and Janos was now in charge of the city watch. Realizing he had failed to resist the entry of William Lovie he fled to the Sky Towers where he planned to use the Sky Tower forces to hold off William while he hoped his father would gather supporters. Finding that none of the supposed loyal vassals of House Lovie remained on Bill`s side despite his fathers belief that they would have supported his rule over his upstart son, and thus Sean panicked and begin abusing the few remaining lower ranked nobles that had come to the Sky Towers to show their support.
Entering the Sky Tower
The prince would continue making his way through the city of Lucerne William would gather thousands of supporters to his army marching like a massive horde towards the Sky Towers where the hundred strong garrison would prepare for their coming. As William Lovie attempted to enter the Sky Towers Sean Lovie gave the House Lovie forces the command to stop him at all costs but by this point no one was listening to him, and the order wasn't accepted by the head of the House Lovie Sky Tower guards in Barrett Ahren. Sean discovered that they too were unwilling to stop the prince from coming, and begged his father to tell him how they were going to get out of this but his father just sat at his desk waiting for William to enter the room. As they waited the two would have a final visitor in the form of Bill Thalmer of whom arrived with two stones and gave the stones to James before taking out a third and disappearing into nothing, and at this Sean attempted to discover what they were but before he could they heard the sounds of the elevator as William arrived on the floor. When William entered the room he did so flanked by Hedrik, Franklin, Edward, Jasper, and Emmett and they found his father sitting at his desk writing on papers, while Sean stood in the corner of the room looking very uncomfortable. William would accuse Bill Lovie of treason and make him very much aware that he was now the King in everything but name, to which Bill Lovie stood up and responded with the following.
Bill went on a series of rants and William rejected this logic, and prepared to arrest Bill and place him in jail, when all of a sudden Bill broke out into historical crying. After litterly crying for nearly a minute Bill finally begin blabbering about different things of which none appeared to make sense until finally Bill begin discussing the Battle of Lyons. Bill told William of how there were piles upon piles of bodies, and he knew that the Orcs were greater then he was. With that speech done Bill took out of his pocket a blue stone, and told William that the day he might bring justice against him would come at some point but it wasn't today as today he was going to leave to the safety that the stone provided. In a single moment Bill disappeared and teleported to the location the stone sent the user. With Bill gone it was just William and Sean and the two stood transfixed at each other, and then as suddenly as a man shot with an arrow dies, Sean went to his pocket and pulled out a green stone and then disappeared into nothing.
